White kitchens are versatile, and timeless, and fit into so many kitchen styles. Uncover some of our favourite white kitchen designs that showcase exactly why we love the simplicity and beauty of white.
Whilst a colour that is typically simple in nature, white can infuse plenty of character and charisma within a kitchen design. And when we are talking favourites, white kitchens are certainly up there with the best of the best.
Versatile and timeless with an ability to fit into so many kitchen styles; white is the champion of many on-trend kitchen designs today. From Hamptons to French Provincial, and the contemporary styles too, we’re excited to share with you some of our favourite white kitchen designs. We’ll showcase the range of diverse applications, and you’ll see exactly why we love the simplicity and beauty, of this timeless hue.
A Favourite Modern/Contemporary White Kitchen Design
Many modern kitchen designs boast a less-is-more approach. More conveniences, less “stuff”. More space for entertaining, less wastage. And what better colour to match a pure, no-nonsense style – it is white of course!
This stunning ocean view kitchen is one of our favourite white kitchen designs for a modern contemporary kitchen.
Crisp Matt Cabinetry
Matt-finished white polyurethane cabinetry holds a stunningly simple and glamorous look to champion the picturesque beachside view that is appreciated from this kitchen. Interest is given to the cabinets through modest, crisp carved lines and subtle black handles and knobs.
Seamless Benchtops and Splashback
White stone with marbled colouring is a dominant feature used on the benchtops and continued up the splashback for a seamless appeal. In this instance, a subtle grey tone in the stone plays against the white to provide delicate character.
White was chosen as the base palette for furnishings in the space, such as breakfast bar stools, whilst rattan accents provide texture and interest.
Simple, White Accessories with Natural Elements
While minimal, this kitchen’s accessories are a lovely mixture of white with natural elements such as wood and greenery.
A fully integrated dishwasher is cleverly concealed below the island. A simple double under-mount sink fits neatly into the stone bench so as not to draw the eye too much.
A Favourite Contemporary French Provincial White Kitchen
The quintessential colour of the French Provincial-style is white as it allows the gorgeous architectural elements of this design style to be masterpieces. Here are some of our favourite things about this traditional, yet contemporary, white French Provincial kitchen.
Decorative Architecture in Simple White
This kitchen design features a curved mantle with a keystone that transforms the rangehood into a centrepiece rather than an ordinary necessity. Much of the stainless steel of the rangehood, which is often visible in other kitchen designs, is concealed behind wonderful white.
The Island is a Dream
This darker-coloured, bold island benchtop is finished off beautifully with painted white architectural elements such as corbels and fluted posts.
Hand-painted white display cabinets and open shelving are included throughout the kitchen cabinetry design.
Walls and Window Coverings
The walls in this kitchen are painted strictly white, as are the shutters that cover the large window which allows the crisp spaciousness of the kitchen space to continue into the adjacent areas of the home.
A Favourite White Kitchen Design for Modern Country Living
The design scope of country-style living has transitioned a long way in modern homes. Today it is completely acceptable to have a crisp, white backdrop that boasts a country-style theme. Here is an example of a beautiful white kitchen designed for a modern lifestyle with a chic country vibe.
For instant impact in your country kitchen, gorgeous subway tiling is just the thing. This stunningly simple element is showcased in one of our favourite white kitchen designs with sassy, white porcelain tiles along the entire back wall.
You simply can’t have a country kitchen without an oversized sink. In this arrangement, we used a white butler’s sink with a stunning porcelain lever tap, (with white handles) to add instant country charm.
Be sure to finish your white country kitchen with beautiful pendant lighting. Pendant lighting is a great opportunity to inject a little colour and character to the space and to offset the simple white palette. Brassy or bold are usually the perfect pairing when it comes to playing against white in a modern country style.
Keep it country by including some simple country-themed elements to compliment with the white cabinetry. Timber flooring, wooden décor, natural materials such as jute or burlap, or a simple wooden or rustic planter box with fresh herbs atop the bench. These elements give some texture and character to the simple, white backdrop.
2 Super-Quick Tips for an Amazing White Kitchen
- If you are considering a white kitchen in your home, bear in mind that not all whites are created the same. A cool white will boast a bluer base, while a warm white has more of a yellow base. Which “shade” of white will work best with the overall look and feel that you want to achieve?
- If you have a smaller-sized kitchen, continue painting the walls in white on the spaces nearby to help give off a more open feel and make the area appear roomier.
With an ability to stand out, while also blending seamlessly with their surroundings, our favourite kitchen designs will always include white kitchens. Adaptable to any style of home or living with timeless and enduring appeal.
If you are looking for a kitchen that exudes character and style without overbearing colours or features, look no further than a white kitchen.
