Modern White Kitchen

There are a number of ways to approach white countertops. White marble is warm, classic and its natural veiny appearance adds texture. It is more expensive than other options as well as higher maintenance. You’ll need to wipe up spills right away, avoid putting hot pans or abrasive items on the surface and seal it on a regular basis. White granite is lower maintenance than marble (seal it once a year and wipe up spills ASAP) but also offers a classic look. Engineered white quartz is durable and non-porous so it’s more sanitary and resists stains, scratches and corrosion. White concrete can achieve that pure white look and it’s also incredibly durable. White glass can be pricey, but in addition to being sleek and bright it’s also non-porous and perhaps the most hygienic option. If you’re on a budget, today’s laminates mimic more expensive granite and marble and also resist scratching and chipping.

Today’s home buyers are turned off by dated kitchens, and are looking for modern additions like granite counters and updated appliances. Those things can both be done in white, and according to the National Kitchen and Bathroom Association, white and off-white are the most popular color schemes for those spaces. Make your design decisions easier by creating an all-white room that’s fresh, bright and aesthetically pleasing.

This Charleston, SC kitchen is big on historic charm but the space’s unique dimensions (the 150+ year old original plaster ceiling is over 16 feet high) and the owner’s desire to preserve the home’s original architecture made fitting a modern kitchen with all the amenities into an 1851 townhouse difficult for designer Brian Reiss. The homeowner frequently entertains large groups and needed plenty of storage but the kitchen’s layout allowed for only one wall of cabinets so Brian’s solution was to create custom cabinets that stretch nearly to the ceiling. Framed, Shaker-style doors and bronze fixtures marry the white cabinets to the home’s traditional style.

White is popular in interior design, often used to create a look of elegance and refinement. These 30 modern kitchen designs use a mix of materials and textures to create posh looks for the homeowners. Throwing in color on walls, in accessories, or in backsplashes has helped to provide great contrasts in a few of these designs. Others maintain their clean white look and pair with wood floors. White can make your room seem larger and in the case of kitchens, reflect light where windows are not available to provide natural lighting.

White sinks have long been bathroom mainstays and the same timeless look translates well into the kitchen, whether you choose a classic white sink or more of a trend piece like a farmhouse sink. If you’re typically hard on your sink (throwing around pots and dishes) then stainless steel may be a better choice. For white sinks, fireclay might be the best option. The material is resistant to scratches, staining, chipping and clean-up is simple (just use soap and water). Enamel-coated-cast iron is another good option for durable white sinks, but tends to be heavier so make sure your cabinets can handle the weight.
