As you consider kitchen remodeling ideas, options and solutions, keep in mind that a white kitchen is a great example of fresh, clean kitchen design. A common example might include pure whites and cream-colored accents blended to create a bright cooking space. Often, a white kitchen is an open, airy environment fit for a number of kitchen layouts.

While the average white kitchen typically relies on white cabinets, countertop surfaces, walls, crown moldings and other accents, an exclusively white total kitchen scheme is rare.

Instead, the white kitchen area includes dark wood floors, a unique kitchen island or seating with beautiful patterns to provide fun bursts of texture and color. Consider also choosing fun, unique lighting accents to provide unexpected design elements.

The traditional white kitchen design pairs white cabinets with a white countertop surface, such as granite or marble. The cabinets are often accented by a raised design, like flat front panels, or given an open design with glass fronts. This kitchen design looks stunning with dark wood floors and a backsplash made from white subway tiles or stones.

One thing to consider when designing a white kitchen is how you will be using the space. If the area will see a high level of cooking activity, or your family is prone to spilling and staining, then you might want to opt for a different kitchen design.
