The Classic White Kitchen

There is something about a white kitchen that screams "classic, clean, and timeless." While it may not be an appropriate look for every home it is often a request for many of my clients. With the right mix of finishes, there are a lot of variations on the classic white kitchen.

The bright accents of yellow make this otherwise all white kitchen fun!

Black countertops are a great contrast to white Shaker style cabinets.

Can't quite give this kitchen credit for being all white, but it still remains classic as being black and white - and I love it!

A Carrra backsplash is undeniably classic.

Varying from traditional Carrara marble countertops is this more unique stone, Biano Macabus Quartize - stunning! (Read about it here)

A more modern classic white kitchen, always looks sharp when paired with stainless steel appliances.

A warm wood flooring, contrasting countertops, bronze hardware give this all white kitchen characteristic (& the beadboard wall of the pantry too!)

Mixing countertop materials, such as in this kitchen with a butcher block island creates visual interest.

Last but not least, if you are going to play it safe with classic white cabinets - why not go a bit dramatic with the floors!

(Which can be achieved through staining, read here for the how to.)
