Get a timeless, classic look with inspiration from these white cottage kitchens.
Pop of Color
To create a seamless look, the cabinets, walls, and trim are painted the same shade of white. The table-style red island is the perfect pop of color, while the mix of metal baskets infuses cottage style and a vintage flair.
Simple & Classic
Wide windows flood the farmhouse sink with natural light. The gooseneck, bridge-style faucet supports the room's traditional cottage look.
This wall features double ovens and places to store cookbooks, but what it doesn't show is a pantry and a refrigerator -- both hidden behind cabinetry panels. The stream-lined look doesn't detract from the kitchen's style.

Columns define this kitchen, yet keep it open to the adjoining family room. The coffered ceiling gives the room an ordered and put-together feel. Industrial-style pendant lights hang over the island to add modern detail to the room.
A large island is the focal point of this kitchen. Wide pilasters at each corner of the island and a dark mahogany countertop give the island an old kitchen table look. Space for working in the kitchen is complete with a built-in sink only steps away from the kitchen's main sink and other appliances. The arched detail above the main apron-front sink balances the square, rigid lines of the coffered ceiling.
The kitchen's white color palette gives the room a clean, fresh, and elegant look. White cabinetry and walls contrast the dark mahogany island, and a white subway-tile backsplash flatters the cabinetry without stealing the spotlight. The wide range is flanked by cabinets and pilasters that pull out for quick access to oils, spices, and other ingredients.
This kitchen was part of an addition done to be new, but not look new. The all-white cabinets are simple and inspired by its time period, but black accents -- in the soapstone counters and island stools -- ground the space.
Mix it Up
The architectural range hood was made to suit the pro-style range's large size. Mixing solid white cabinetry with glass-front units keeps the look bright and airy.
The homeowners' silver collection takes center stage in a large bookcase-style display cabinet.
Chrome pendants add glamour to the island, which features beautiful turned legs and a single slab of marble. Upper cabinets run to the ceiling and include a mix of open and closed storage, perfect for displaying a collection of white dishware.
This kitchen is host to a suite of professional appliances, perfect for a busy family, and the range is framed with a stunning hood, accented with a stainless-steel shelf.
