White Kitchens: everyone’s favourite

Although a white kitchen may seem like a good idea, if the design isn’t right it can make the room look too clinical and stark. When it comes to bespoke design, white kitchens are always popular but with so many hard surfaces in the kitchen it can look a little too bland. There are plenty of ideas, tips and tricks that you can use to create the perfect all white kitchen.

#1 Layering

Although white can be quite clinical looking, you can soften then whites by good shading. Opt for two or maybe three shades of white and use them for different surfaces such as the worktops, tiles or cabinet doors. When layering your different shades of white avoid combining warm and cool white shades.

White kitchens that are well designed will feature high quality materials. One of the best ways that you can achieve this is by using a company such as ours who specialise in bespoke design. Bespoke storage can be real statement pieces, making an otherwise bland and clinical looking kitchen appear more interesting.

#3 Texture in a White Kitchen

As well as adding in different shades of white you can also use textures to add something a little different to your kitchen. As an example, you could combine matt and gloss finishes, but in such a way that works well. This is where the eye of a professional kitchen designer would be so valuable.

#4 Colours

Even if most of your kitchen is white, you can still add splashes of colour or accent colours in the custom built cabinets. A few well selected colours can be used to create an overall theme for your kitchen, breaking up the plainness of a traditional white kitchen.
