White kitchens are all the rage in home design! Homeowners can choose from a wide variety of cabinets and countertops that come in the hottest shades of white in several different materials. Oftentimes, white kitchens feature natural wood grains, such as hardwood flooring, to warm up the space. Another popular trend is adding a splash of color to your all-white kitchen, such as painting the island cabinets a dark or navy blue
While some designers say that white kitchens are a thing of the past, we stand by our love for crisp, white with pops of color. This could mean all-white countertops and cabinets with a colorful tile backsplash, or blue cabinets with a white countertop. Select colors that you love and explore warmer, creamy whites to give your kitchen that welcoming feeling, perfect for gatherings and parties. Design a kitchen that you love!
Not only are white kitchens easy to keep clean, but they also provide a fresh and timeless look. They’re the perfect space to display colorful china, linens and cookware.
With hundreds of shades of white varying from cool to warm, give your kitchen a personal touch by using different shades and contrasting textures!
When buying or remodeling a home, you can choose from a large range of countertop materials, including Cambria quartz, granite, natural marble, natural stone and solid surface.
Here are some top countertop choices for a stunning kitchen boasting shades of white:
Cambria quartz is a non-porous engineered product that is durable and contains 93% natural stone. Coming in slab forms like natural marble and granite, Cambria quartz is available in several shades of white. Introduced in 2021, Cashel, Hermitage and Notting Hill are three new additions to the Cambria quartz family.
- Cashel features energetic burgundy veins accessorized with tan shading, across a warm white background.
- Hermitage has an elegant, warm design with delicate gold veining and swirls that glisten. This design unites perfectly with gold and bronze hardware!
- Parallel to Cashel, Notting Hill boasts organic burgundy veins that flow through a clean white canvas and features a delicate shimmer.
- Additional Cambria whites include Hemsworth with strong contract black veins, Ivybridge with moody teal diagonal veins and Ruxley with subtle emerald veins. All highlight an artic white background.
Also featured on the trending list are white marble countertops! The five most popular selections are White Marble, Calacatta Gold Marble, Calacatta Manhattan Marble, Calacatta Toscano Marble and White Monte Blanc Marble.
- Italian Carrara marble presents a slightly gray hue. Used by Michelangelo and other Renaissance sculptors to make their infamous works, the Italian Carrara marble is beautiful, timeless and durable enough for most households.
- Calacatta Gold marble is the whitest marble choice out there. Imported from Italy, this marble has warm gray and gold veining and is typically used in luxury projects due to its exotic nature.
