Traditional White Kitchen Design Ideas
Traditional white kitchens are classic and timeless, but that doesn’t mean that they are boring! There are so many ways to add visual interest and style to a white kitchen. Simple white cabinets and/or counters and backsplash provide the perfect backdrop. You can accentuate the neutral hue with statement pieces, architectural elements, and pops of unexpected color to create a sense of clean and sophisticated design. Here are some great ways to create a layered, eye-catching – yet traditional – white kitchen.
Add intricate custom trimwork around doors and windows. Don’t forget crown moldings and baseboards. Consider incorporating a coffered ceiling to help define the space and integrate dimension.
Glass Front Cabinets
Glass front cabinets create a more open feel to the space and allow you to bring personality into the kitchen through collections and interesting pieces.
The backsplash affords the perfect place to bring color and texture, as well as bold or whimsical elements, into the kitchen. Choose a colorful hue or apply complimentary neutral colored tiles in a fun pattern.
Contrasting and Furniture Style Islands
Mixing white cabinets with a wood toned island brings visual contrast to the space. Furniture style islands also keep with the traditional style and add texture and interest with fluted corner posts and built in shelving.
The variations and veining in natural stone are an easy way to make a statement in a traditional white kitchen.
Stainless steel hoods add a contrasting metallic element to the space, as well as modern touch. While blending in with the surrounding cabinetry, paneled hoods create another architectural detail for the eye. Hoods with sconces bring a beautiful ambient glow.
