Bright and spacious white kitchens
Next we will discover the best and most modern designs of white kitchens combined with elements, colors and styles. The main advantage of white kitchens is the brightness and spaciousness they produce either in small spaces or in large kitchens, which will appear even more spacious.
White kitchens are one of the best choices for:
- The clarity provided
- How easy it will be to adapt aesthetically to any environment
- They remain fashionable and maintenance is easy over time
A good kitchen design depends on the naivety when it comes to the shape and the furniture placement. That way we will avoid the coldness that too much white color can result in. Minimalism is also very important, that is, to reduce the elements to the bare minimum or basic, essential elements and combine them properly.
Modern White Kitchens
Today we all want to have a modern kitchen but we shouldn’t forget the main thing is that the kitchen is also functional, practical and with a great design. The vast majority of these kitchens are comprised by furniture with a matt laquered finish or a mirror finish, because the color white goes with everything. In fact, we can combine it with aluminium accessories or metal fittings. A great example of all this would be this image.
The walls also look great in white, regardless of the type of wall we have (smooth or with tiles) but for the kitchen floor we recommend you avoid the color white and use instead something in that range such as a shade of gray, sand color…
We do all that we’ve mentioned before so we can achieve the main objective behind any white kitchen: the brightness. For instance, in small kitchens, white would be the perfect color because it will increase the sense of breadth.
Up next, we leave a full photo gallery of modern kitchens and with the color white as the main color:
To enhance the angular design of the kitchen it is always better to combine colors such as black, white and gray. We mean by this that the choice of colors is as important as the design and equipment of the kitchen. To make the right choice of colors we have to take into account: colors, textures and quality of components, that is, appliances, furniture and the countertop.
Gray is also one of the essential shades for 2016 kitchens and, if you think about it, it is a color that is very present mainly in appliances with their metallic tones.
For example, if you want to achieve what seems like a simple yet elegant and beautiful style, we recommend seek for kitchens such as kitchens with white lacquer, gray granite and black glass. So you can get the idea we leave the next gallery of photos.
Black and White Kitchens
Gray is a color that fits perfectly with white kitchens, like the ones we have seen before, but we can also add black.
Black might appear to be a color that’s perhaps too “strong” for a kitchen, we can make black along with the color white one of top choices.
Besides being white the great color for the kitchens of 2016, and having the color black that has also become a trendy color, there is nothing missing on kitchens where both colors bring modernity and style.
If you do not like the color black for kitchen furniture, or for walls, you also have the option of using it as color for the kitchen floor.
This will make your kitchen become the perfect area of the house to recreate styles such as “retro” or “vintage”as well, which right now is becoming quite popular.
Do not hesitate, and do not fear that the color black will suck the light provided by the color white, in fact it may make the space stand out more.
We leave you a full gallery of photos so you can see new options for these kitchens:
White Kitchens and Wood
One element that is very used in white kitchens is wood, one of the most fashionable materials, also requested for its strength, finish and beauty.
It is not necessary for it to be solid wood, since it is more expensive. There are materials such as a laminate that appears to be very beautiful and resistant. This is due to their composition of agglomerated layers of wood and other materials, such as paper.
The wood ois very useful in any kitchen, because it can be combined in so many ways. It is frequently found on the countertops and are usually quartz or silestone (perfect for kitchens with bright colors or smooth finishes and modern). It can also be included in the furniture as in parquet flooring.
The floor in wood is indeed a common trend, so it’s something that can look great and be a good option for your kitchen in white.
The most innovative in wood is the system of Gola handles, they are not normal handles but they contain a few slits from which we can pull to open the furniture. So that you can see all the news in kitchens with wood we leave some photos up next.
Small White Kitchens
Having a small kitchen is quite normal but it doesn’t have to be a problem anymore. A kitchen is a place where we spend a lot of our free time and, thus, we want it to be practical, comfortable and cozy. Sometimes it can be difficult to decorate them because of the lack of space, managing the space so we can introduce furniture, apppliances and not feel traped whilst being there.
We are going to try to take advantage of our kitchen by getting creative and with our wit. If you don’t want the kitchen decoration to become a problem, you should follow the tips we will be sharing with you up next:
- Take advantage of the light there is: light is basic and if it can be natural light better, because it provides breadth to the room. If we have no windows and we can make one, we recommend you use led bulbs (consistent and cheap light).
- The color white, as we’ve previously stated, makes the surfice seem bigger and provides brightness However, any color that’s close to the range of the color white will do the same thing as long as it is a light or ecru color. Pintar las paredes, muebles, armarios o incluso en el suelo de color blanco puede ser una gran idea.
- Multi-purpose furniture and folding furniture can be quite useful for small spaces, because we will save space. For instance, a drawer that can be used as a table too.
- Big tall shelves that we can use to store and organize utensils and products. This is the most efficient way of optimizing the space we have and take advantage of every corner of the kitchen.
We are aiming at the kitchen looking less small with all the tips we’ve just given you. It will seem bigger because we will benefit from every corner and, with a great design, we will achieve the goal of the kitchen being practical, comfortable and cozy.

White kitchens with minimal elements
Again we talk about the naivety when it comes to design the kitchen: inclined walls, islands at different heights, black marble… These elements characterize the most modern kitchens that seek the maximum expression with the minimum elements.
This idea consists on having open areas, such as the kitchen and dining room, where furniture and appliances are combined. For example, on a wall you see a refrigerator between two pieces of furniture, so we are taking advantage of the space with elements such as the island, which usually has a sink and is equipped with many cabinets with doors and storage drawers.
The objective is that these kitchens can be very charming and yet practical, taking advantage of all the free spaces to be able to store all the products but with the minimum elements. Why? Because what you are looking for is having breadth. In the next gallery of photos you can see all the images of this type of kitchens.
