So, I’ve been wanting to paint my kitchen cabinets white for years. They are beautiful, indeedio, but the cabinets are almost the same color as the floors and the counters are dark. It makes for a bit of a sludge vibe. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to do it, but I’m dreaming of all the fun things you can do with a white kitchen.
What I mean to say is that white kitchens do not have to be boring! They can be bold. I want to prove that to you today.
Our first (and quite possibly my favorite) white kitchen is from Elise’s Kitchen Remodel at A Beautfiul Mess.
I just love how she was able to recolor her appliances. And the open shelving (which she says she loves) is just beautiful. I am also smitten over her gold hardware. The white counters, floors and cabinets really make these detail shine.
That’s what I love about a white background. The Devil (and the swagger) lies in the details!
This white kitchen from My Scandinavian Home thrills me to the core. I love the tile that goes all the way up to the ceiling and THOSE DOORS. Holy cannoli.
All it needs is a pop of pink somewhere. Just a little. Like some pink peonies tucked into that vase on the table. Gimme-gimme.
I honestly don’t know what to do with myself here. I’m gaga over this black and white backsplash in this white kitchen.
I know that I would have to do this in my kitchen when we get ready to update it. And that gas stove. Someone send me some dough. (the green kind, baby…green)
On reason I’ve always wanted to buy and old home is so I can do cool things to the floors. Like in this amazing kitchen.
I would paint some beaten up hardwoods before you could call me crazy. I mean, if I can paint a piano, I can certainly paint some hardwood floors without guilt.
This white kitchen I found at designmom.com just hits all the right notes. A few pops of gold with the chandies and accents just make me wanna slurp it right up.
And that breakfast table? I’m all over that one. I love the natural wood base. It breaks the monotony of the white and makes the room warm up just enough.
Now, here we depart a little from the glam, but certainly not the bold. Alison Kandler hit a homerun with this white kitchen.
She pulls in lots of color, but it’s still not overwhelming because there is so much white. And the scalloped detail on the hood makes this kitchen feel like it could be in a dollhouse. But the rustic sconces and sophisticated colors keep it from going over the board little-girly. Just the right amount, if you ask me.
So several years ago, we were going to build a house in Georgia. I almost lost my eyesight looking over house plans, but one of my favorites had an inset kitchen like this one. Not as elaborate as our budget was thinner than a fruit roll up, but I love the idea of an open kitchen that still feels like it’s sort of in its own space.
Not to mention brick anywhere inside is a total win. Swoon.
This kitchen from Oh Joy! drives me the best kind of mad. We certainly couldn’t live with such a tiny fridge (though the one we had in Switzerland was probably about that size). But I think this is just her studio, so that might would work. Stock that fridge with fresh cut limes and Perrier and I’d be a happy blogger.
I also adore the kick board detail. And the doughnut print. Give me doughnuts, but make sure they’re on paper. Pretty to look at but me no touchy.
Maybe one day I’ll have that gas stove and need a custom wooden hood like that.
Last but never last, this beautifully styled candy land of a kitchen from Sugar and Cloth satisfies my sweet tooth. I want it all. Morgan would probably want to move out, but I’m sure he’d come visit me on occasion.
It has all the elements of the mostest funnest life. Even that toaster screams happiness. ( <= But honestly… who pays that much for a toaster? #comeon)
So that’s it. I think we ran the gamut of white kitchens today and I seriously love them all.
Which one is your favorite?
