White kitchen designs are clever and classic that never 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.
What makes up white kitchen designs?
White kitchen designs with an industrial touch
My clients, a couple in Mosman, wanted to go for the white-on-white look but they were worried that this neutral colour scheme might look cold and bland. This is why for this design we incorporated an industrial touch in the design.
The Marble Look
I recommended choosing a benchtop that has the marble look. Including the traditional broad grey veins through the stone, Statuario Maximus by Caesarstone breaks up the otherwise solid white kitchen in this design.
Open shelving for cups and plates
Another feature that adds interest is the open timber shelving integrated into the overhead cupboards mirroring the dark colour from 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
A 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 appliance cupboard where the toaster, kettle and coffee machine are hidden away but still easy to access. If you’re looking for a few nifty kitchen ideas check out this link.
No handles for a seamless kitchen
The push/pull mechanism of the cabinet doors allows for not having to include handles at all in this kitchen design. Therefore making this kitchen easy to clean while achieving a sleek 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.
