A white kitchen design is a classic that doesn’t seem to go out of trend. White benchtops combined with white cabinets are on the top of many homeowners’ wish list when it comes to designing a new kitchen.
White kitchen design with industrial touch
My clients, a couple in Mosman, also wanted to go for the white-on-white look paired with an industrial touch. But they were worried that this neutral colour scheme might look cold and bland.
Marble look kitchen benchtop
That’s why I recommended using a benchtop that has a marble look with broad grey veins running through the stone. This Statuario Maximus by Caesarstone breaks up the otherwise solid white kitchen design.
Open shelving for cups and plates
Another feature that adds interest is the open timber shelving incorporated in the overhead cupboards mirroring the dark colour of the timber floor boards.
Splashback in herringbone pattern
Underneath and highlighted by LED light strips is the splashback with a herringbone pattern. For the grout I selected a light grey to strike a balance between showing off the herringbone tile without becoming overpowering.
Black kitchen sink and tapware
Black sink and black tapware provide contrasting accents to the white kitchen. They correspond well with the industrial bar stools with their black leather pads and wired back rests.
Pendant lights over island bench
Continuing this theme, we installed minimalist pendant lights on top of the island bench for additional lighting and to create interest.
Plenty of storage in white kitchen design
The tall floor to ceiling cabinetry on the left offers plenty of storage in this contemporary kitchen. It includes a pantry and an appliance cupboard where toaster, kettle and coffee machine are hidden away.
No handles for a seamless kitchen
The push/pull mechanism of the cabinet doors allows to ditch the handles altogether making this kitchen easy to clean while achieving this seamless look.
LED light strips let the island bench float
LED lighting on the bottom of the island bench give the impression of a weightless island that seems to hover effortlessly over the kitchen floor.
