Home design trends come and go but a white kitchen is always a winner. From a timeless classic country look to a very modern minimalist layout you can find the option that best fit your house in versions of white. If you are planning on building or remodeling your kitchen let us tell you why you should go with a white kitchen as a first choice.
White is clean and fresh
Cleanlines is always wanted in areas where you cook and eat, so the color of purity is a no-brainer choice. Even if you are not ready to an all-white kitchen you can choose white marble or quartz for your countertop and sink, the places that most need to be impeccable to put food on.
A white kitchen is timeless
You can find both old kitchens from early XX century and current smart home kitchens in plain white, so this is the color of preference for the very trendy transitional design.
You can take advantage of the revival of white subway tiles in walls and backsplashes and update your kitchen to the newest look that will never get out of fashion.
You will always find white kitchen parts for every budget
The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers says white appliances have outsold all other colors, and that goes too for cabinetry, tiles and hardware. You can find white versions in almost all kitchen parts, manufacturers and budgets, which makes things easier when facing maintenance or a remodel of your old kitchen.
With a very limited budget, you can reface all kitchen cabinets with thermofoil laminated doors, shelves and drawer fronts, so your new white kitchen could be cheaper that you think.
A white space is like a canvas
You will be surprised on how you could update your kitchen with just a paint job and some decoration.
You will never get bored of your white kitchen if you paint an accent wall with a vibrant color, change your furniture or even add stained or colored glass to its windows. You can make those updates as periodically as you want, without the hassle of trying to match your decor to the base color of the room.
Everybody loves a white kitchen
One of the most costly upgrades of a home is a kitchen remodel, so you want to make the most of your investment.
According to National Association of Realtors, you can expect up to 67% of investment recovered at resale for a complete kitchen upgrade, but you need it to be captivating for new owners too. Besides all the advantages mentioned before -that a good realtor can market very easily-, a bright kitchen feel spacious even if it is kind of small.
A white kitchen is always trendy and highly marketable, while easy to update and decor. Next time you think about a kitchen remodel or addition think white!
