White kitchen themes continue to be the most common kitchen color scheme, and for good reason. White kitchens are a timeless approach and are compatible with many different styles and designs. If you have a plain white theme though, think about spicing things up with new and emerging styles and color schemes that work with the white design. While you shouldn’t ditch the white kitchen look, add-on to it and create a kitchen design to be proud of!
White Kitchen Designs
One of the best complimentary designs with a white kitchen are glass-front cabinets. Depending on the desired look, glass-front cabinets can capture a modern look. The glass-front cabinet design works so well with the white theme adding a classic style. The glass-front adds functional benefits as well, allowing you to never have to search high and low for that plate that always seems to go missing.
Another style we love to see in white kitchens is a brick backsplash. Again, this can be used for a variety of looks, white brick presents a more current look while also seeming agrarian. Regular brick captures a homey rustic look, which is always a good choice for a kitchen feel.
Building on the rustic look, a great way to manifest a simple theme within a white kitchen is to install white wood paneling around the island. The white paneling around the island paired with a white brick backsplash can create a beautifully simple yet stylish kitchen theme.
Adding Color to a White Kitchen
If you want to add color to your kitchen while staying true to a white theme, adding soft compliments, red, green, blue, to a white backdrop can add charisma to a lacking kitchen. The color paired with white creates a soft color scheme that can enrich the atmosphere of the kitchen, and brighten the room itself.
Flooring can make a Difference
If you want to stick to the white, think about a dark floor to perfectly contrast the white kitchen theme. Black flooring or oak hardwood with a dark finish can add the perfect variation you may be looking for.
White isn’t the only kitchen option available, nor is it necessarily the best, but it is a proven classic and can be customized to fit the style of almost anyone. Before you think of adding a crazy color scheme to your kitchen, start with a white kitchen, because the designs are almost endless, and then you can build on it from there!
