Across the board, you will find that white kitchens are easily the most popular style throughout interior design. This is because white kitchens naturally possess an aura of cleanliness. White usually will be the base color for walls, cabinets, countertops, tile, and even kitchen islands. White kitchens certainly are classic, but by broadening your horizons, you may find a sophisticated style that may suit you more: whether that be using a modern flair with navy or gray, or keeping it classic with pops of black. Here are a few tips and tricks I often present to clients when brainstorming for their luxury kitchen.
1. Embrace the grays.
Gray is classic, clean, and can be absolutely stunning. Many kitchens with gray shades can feel more inviting because they don't feel as sterile, which can be a problem for all-white kitchens. The kitchen is the heart of the home and should welcome your friends and family in more than anything else. By using the perfect shade of gray, you can keep your lines clean.
2. Indulge in navy.
Navy kitchens have been growing in popularity over the last few years and it's easy to see why: with pops of navy on cabinets or kitchen islands, you are pulled into a space that feels charming and modern. When working with navy, you can keep it more classic by mixing it with grays or other neutral tones, or you can go all out to make sure your kitchen is the trendiest in town. Sometimes we've seen a powerful pop of navy via a kitchen island -- and this can make an otherwise all-white kitchen feel stunning. Whatever you do, don't be afraid to experiment, because at the very least, you can always use paint if you feel your style has evolved in a few years or later on down the line.
No matter what your style is, it's a great idea to look at your options whenever remodeling or redesigning your home. Your home is your special space and should always make you feel happy, safe, and expressive. Slipping into the common trend of going all-white doesn't feel so safe once you've learned your options and opened your eyes to an entire world outside of it.
