(mostly) White Kitchens
August 31, 2013
Give me a white kitchen with open shelving any day. I love the simplicity, the straightforwardness and the cleanliness of the combination. I’m not really interested in gimmicky back-splashes or tricky knobs and I believe that restraint is the both the most difficult in a kitchen design and the most rewarding. I don’t want to cook in a room that feels more like a den or library and I certainly don’t want to buy into the stove as trophy aesthetic that is still so prevalent in “current kitchens”. For me white base cabinets look best with paneled appliances or a white dishwasher and refrigerator, allowing them to meld into the cabinets and walls. I don’t mind a bit of stainless and wouldn’t want a white range or stove (unless it’s an Aga) but I don’t want a massive range, hood, combo that overpowers the space. Here are a few great kitchens…
I’ve been sitting on these photos for sometime, I’m sure you won’t mind the “over-share”… there were just too many to edit them down. Happy Labor Day everyone! I hope you spend it with loved ones and/or friends doing something you love.
