KITCHEN RENOVATION IDEAS – THE WHITE EDITION
Classic white cabinetry is a popular choice for many kitchen makeovers, due to its versatility and timeless elegance that suits almost any home. From relaxed coastal vibes to warm and traditional, your neutral white cabinets will set the perfect base for you to inject your own style into the room, and then change it up for something fresh as your tastes evolve.
Whether you are looking for some styling and design inspiration, about to embark on a kitchen renovation, or building a home with neutral cabinets that need a little extra pizazz, we discuss some of the fun ways you can create your dream white kitchen!
White on White
Firstly, it would be amiss of us if we didn’t kick this off with the classic white on white kitchen, it’s almost impossible to beat if you are looking for a palette that will last the distance with little to no risk of looking dated as trends change over the seasons.
Clean white gloss cabinetry paired with a slightly textured quartz stone benchtop never fails to give any kitchen design a timeless look, and it doesn’t have to mean boring either! The addition of chrome handles, or a mirrored splashback adds interest to the room, and injects your personality through artwork and décor to bring it all together beautifully.
Black and white is a colour combination that is a winner over and over again, and it’s easy to see why. Kitchens created with this palette in mind are bold, versatile, and perhaps most importantly, they allow the homeowner to have some fun with interesting feature pieces – such as colour blocking your all-white room with the addition of dramatic charcoal-hued pendant lighting and matte black bar stools. By adding these elements to your white cabinetry you allow them to take centre-stage against the neutral surroundings, while creating balance and preventing the space from becoming overwhelming.
One thing we want to steer-clear of when committing to a predominantly white kitchen is making the room feel clinical, however this is thankfully quite easy to avoid if you know what to look for. The key here is texture, texture, texture! Opt for a mix of matte finish and high gloss cabinetry – using the glossy style for your overhead cabinets to help bounce light around the room.
If that’s not enough texture for you, why not consider some shaker-style doors, which will instantly bring an elegant and classic feel to an otherwise very modern kitchen theme.
Add the WOW factor to your white kitchen with some creamy marble bench-tops, or why not go all out and have both a marble bench-top and splashback for that stunning continuation of luxury.
A popular look that we can’t get enough of, is a statement island bench to create a beautiful focal-point within your room that catches your eye immediately. By keeping the surrounding benchtops a clean tone of snow, you can put your dollars toward the luxurious marble centrepiece and not break the bank by going ‘all marble everything’.
