As one of the most important spaces in your home, your kitchen has to be both beautiful and functional. We love white kitchen designs because they’re bright, clean and make the space feel light. Plus, a classic white kitchen will never go out of style. From adding a pop of color to bringing warmth with wood elements, there are a lot of design ideas to help make a white kitchen feel welcoming. We rounded up some of our favorite white kitchen designs below to inspire the kitchen of your dreams.
WHITE KITCHEN DESIGN IDEAS
In this contemporary space, white cabinets, a white backsplash, and neutral gray floors create an extremely sleek look. For just a hint of depth and texture, wood paneling on the wall provides storage and ties into the side of the kitchen island. Sometimes, the details in a kitchen are what bring everything together. In this space, a few carefully placed accents bring the room to life, like the wood bowl next to the range or the tall orchid on the island.

This expansive white kitchen is all about contrast. Dark wood cabinetry on the island and bar help ground the space, providing contrast to the all-white cabinetry and tile. Reflective elements throughout the room add even more light to the space, like the chrome hardware, abstract dining light fixture, and the long glass dining table.
Strategically placed pops of color bring personality to this monochromatic white kitchen. While most of the permanent fixtures are white, from the floors to the cabinets, colorful pieces ensure the space feels anything but boring. A modern cluster pendant above the island features red cords, tying into the red and orange pillow on the sofa in the nearby living area. In the dining nook, chairs in a soft green-yellow provide the perfect complement.
WHITE KITCHEN DESIGN DETAILS
On the island of this white kitchen, a wood countertop adds an abundance of warmth to the space and brings the whole design together.
This kitchen features a unique galley-style layout. The curved elements, like the corner of the cabinets and the unique oval-shaped table next to the island balance out the linear feel of the spaces. Wood accents on the table and chairs add warmth to the design, and tie the kitchen in with the rest of the home.
When you have a white kitchen, it leaves more opportunity for large statement pieces like this custom shelving. The brass piping pairs beautifully with the brass details on the kitchen light fixture, while the wood shelves tie into the light wood floors for plenty of character.
From traditional to contemporary, white kitchen designs provide a bright and light space for everyone to gather. It’s an ideal option if you want a truly timeless kitchen design, then you can still add personality and warmth with stylish accents and details that are easy to swap out.
