White Kitchen Design Ideas

For designs that endure, go with white. White kitchens can be traditional, modern, or country -- and personalized to fit anything in between.

    • Soaring Ceiling

      A vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and painted paneling helps this white kitchen rise above the rest. White Shaker-style cabinets line the perimeter of the kitchen, punctuated by a richly stained island with marble top.

    • Classic Cottage

      In a small kitchen, white works wonders to create the illusion of more space. Open shelving and beaded-board paneling are inexpensive ways to give any kitchen a cottage feel. A stripe of rich taupe paint gives the kitchen substance and ensures all the white doesn't feel washed out.

    • Blue and Breezy

      Chrome accents add sparkle and dimension to this white kitchen, while wood floors add warmth. Traditional styling and marble countertops create a classic look. Wood stools with blue accents were inspired by the collection of Chinese pottery displayed throughout the room.

    • Customized Colorful Tile

      Colorful tile can completely change the mood of a white kitchen. Here, lime green tiles break up upper and lower cabinets and play off the patterned window treatments. The kitchen feels crisp, clean, and contemporary.

    • Rich Accents

      Rich accents add weight to a symmetrical white kitchen. A pair of wrought-iron lantern pendants punctuates the large island topped with honed Calacatta Gold marble. Floating shelves flanking the range hood lighten the look of the kitchen and create beautiful display space.

    • Quaint Cottage Kitchen

      In this quaint kitchen, a beaded-board ceiling, turned legs on the wood-topped island, and classic millwork are all painted white for a look that is cheery and bright. The pantry is hidden behind a message board and the range hood is encased in wood panels to transform this kitchen into a personal place to gather.

    • Farm-Fresh Style

      Creamy off-white cabinets complement the variation in the dark-stained island. The texture in the stone subway tiles and the island's wood grain add a casual feeling to the traditional white kitchen. Open shelving on the island also lightens the room's look.

    • Bold Accents

      Dark walnut floors take the chill off of the crisp white kitchen, and the dark countertop on the breakfast bar and espresso floating shelves add even more definition. By incorporating bold color through accessories, the homeowners can easily change the color palette of their kitchen without breaking the bank.

      Island with Character

      Planked walls and a coffered ceiling add character to this kitchen. A spacious marble-topped island is complete with furniture-style details and a trio of wood stools. Heavily veined marble acts as a backsplash and the accent color in this classic white kitchen and adjacent breakfast nook.
