Ok, maybe not To Die For, but you know what I mean. They are good.
Let’s talk about white kitchens for a moment, shall we?
First off, let’s define them. To me, a white kitchen is one that is mostly white of course. It doesn’t mean that all the cabinets have to be white, the backsplash white, or the countertops all white. To me, it just means that when you look at the overall space, it feels light and airy.
Personally, I love white kitchens. To me, they have the most clean lines and seem the most inviting.
When Grunt Labor and I bought our foreclosure, I knew I wanted to make the cabinets white and have subway tile in our kitchen. We went for a white on white on white scheme with the cabinets, countertops, and backsplash, then brought in color with the barstools, and character with the island. I do have to say though, I am starting to crave just a bit more color in here – I’m thinking I can bring some in with a couple rugs.
And on a side note – everyone always asks me how hard it is to keep white cabinets clean. Well honestly, I’m not the best at keeping them spic ‘n span everyday. I don’t have time to wipe them down daily. However, when I do get around to wiping them down, any grease, dirt, or smudges come off super easily with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
I love the simple white cabinets in this kitchen and the classic subway tile. What I really really love about this kitchen though are the pops of black and white. Those countertops are perfection and the black and white rugs tie it all in.
Sara Richardson is one of my all time favorite designers. This kitchen she designed is to me, breathtaking. On one side, you’ve got the clean white cabinets and then bam that navy and brass island just make it all pop.
Yep, more navy. I am totally digging the white cabinets on top, navy on the bottom. Even though this space has some definite color, it still has that overall white feel to me with the countertops and backsplash.
Four Generations One Roof has a beautiful white kitchen. She brought in some color with her backsplash and tied it together with her rug. I love the cozy cottage feel.
This kitchen is definitely on the modern side. I’m not 100% crazy about the style of it, but I love how it shows that you can have lots of black in a kitchen and still have it feeling light and airy by painting the walls white and doing a white backsplash.
Mom 4 Real has another beautiful white kitchen, but had the genius idea of removing some of her upper cabinet doors and painting the backs with a fun teal color. Such a great way to add color, while still keeping that white kitchen feel.
