White Kitchens have been a staple trend for many decades now and are only continuing to grow in popularity with homeowners. What’s not to love about a classic white kitchen? They are loved everywhere in the world but read our pros and cons before purchasing a white kitchen to find out if it suits you.



White is a great option for long-term usage as it is a timeless colour and easy to update. No two whites are identical so slight variations of white are can create an interesting look for your kitchen.


The appeal of a white kitchen is for the crisp, clean style it projects. White has the power to lift up spirits with glossy surfaces, reflective from the sunlight and create a small space appear larger.


White defies all trends, which makes it versatile. Add neutrals or bursts of colour, and white will serve as a fantastic base colour. It is easy to decorate even while changing your entire décor. Also, works well with any kitchen style from French Provincial to Hampton Style.


Ageing shows

White in any form eventually wears, the colour changes and can sometimes be hard to repair. Other materials also wear, but it can easily be seen on white. Laminates tend to turn cream or even yellow after many years of sun exposure.

Constant Cleaning

If you cook and entertain regularly a white kitchen may not be for you. Wear and tear shows easily thus needing regular maintenance for up keep. With Children’s curious nature want to touch everything which can easily leave smudges, scratches and splashes from food all over the kitchen.

White on White

Incorporating too much white, be that of varying undertones, may run the risk of forming a cold and clinical feeling area. If surrounding rooms have no white then a white kitchen will be isolating itself from the rest of the home. A running theme is necessary to have an aesthetically pleasing house.
