Why White Kitchens Remain Timeless and ClassicOctober 17, 2016 // Posted in:
No other color speaks light and bright, so it comes as no surprise that white kitchens have stood the test of time. White kitchens have a timeless and classic look that can suit any home perfectly.
Known for exuding a clean and fresh ambiance, a white kitchen acts as the perfect backdrop that complements any décor, and remains one of the top factors in retaining home value. Whether you’re looking to open up a small space or enhance a kitchen, white is the ideal neutral color as it offers a sense of purity and reflects light like no other color can.
Homeowners are embracing white kitchens even more today because this color doesn’t discriminate. White complements all home décors, including traditional, contemporary and modern designs. Even more appealing is the fact that white is a standard color which opens up the vast accessibility of white tile, countertops, faucets, sinks and appliances, thus making it available (and affordable) to fit any budget.
Mixing other colors and textures with a white kitchen gives homeowners the flexibility to switch up their décor and tap their creative sides while still maintaining an open and classic feel. Design experts believe that wood flooring and quartz countertops are great companions for white kitchens.
The “2016 Design Trends Survey” (released earlier this year by the National Kitchen Bath & Association) revealed that white and off-white tones are still the most common in kitchen design, and are commonly paired with charcoal and dark grays to create a contrast. Other trends included the incorporation of pet spaces into kitchen projects, as well as simplified storage (such as pull-out drawers) in kitchen and bath design.
