  • Why We Love White Kitchens
Colors come and go (see ya, avacado countertops!) but one color you won't see heading out the door is white. It's nearly impossible these days to skim through popular design sites like Pinterest and Houzz.com and not come across a brilliantly bright white kitchen. As we mentioned in our Kitchen Trends of 2014 blogpost, this classic style continues to be in high demand even despite the recent movement towards darker, richer tones. White kitchens have been trending for quite awhile now. Back in the early 1900s, white was the only color offered by manufacturers due to its association with sanitation and health. It makes sense that cleanliness would be of high importance in an era still suffering from a worldwide deadly flu epidemic. Dirt certainly has a hard time hiding in an all-white kitchen! An entire century later, this color is still a go-to choice for homeowners and designers alike. We admit we never tire of a client asking for a white kitchen, and here's why: White Makes You Feel Good As if the dishes weren't already a daunting task, they're especially no fun in a dark, gloomy kitchen. No problem, white will cheer you up in a heartbeat! According to color therapists, white represents happiness and purity that leaves you with a good feeling (even if you did just spend 2 hours preparing a pot roast!). Turn Small Into Big It can be difficult spending a lot of time in a small kitchen that feels cluttered and congested. White naturally makes spaces appear larger thanks to its reflectiveness, turning a stuffy kitchen into a breezy one! This reason alone accounts for the white kitchen boom in apartments and cottage-style homes. Keep It Clean You want the one room where food is prepared to look and feel clean. Even more so, you want to know it's clean. As we stated above, its difficult for dirt to hide in a white kitchen. White let's you easily spot dirt or messes and clean them up right away, giving you the real confidence you deserve! Very Versatile Naturally, white goes with everything! Whether you favor black appliances over stainless steel, wood countertops over granite, or a stone backsplash over marble, you won't have to make any sacrifices when pairing them to white. White also works for all kinds of styles – country, traditional, contemporary, and modern. The Perfect Backdrop We talked earlier about ways you can add color to a neutral kitchen. Well white happens to be the perfect backdrop for doing just that! Plus the contrast will make wood finishes feel richer, colors pop brighter, and light fixtures look like sculptural elements. It even lets you mix your favorite textures. Tell us why you love white kitchens in the comments!
