White in kitchen interior design
Interior design trends are changing faster than we can keep up with them. One moment the trend charts are one thing, then within a season they change to something completely different. From time to time, our articles point out that kitchens in white or light colours are very fashionable and will complement the interior of any home. That is true, but in this article we will look at this idea from a different angle and look deeper into why. So why will white always be so fashionable?
Why white? The reasons can range from the versatility of the design options to the ability of light colours to expand space. White kitchens add light to a room, giving the illusion that it’s bigger than it is. White kitchens create a sophisticated look, their appearance is clean and they will retain their elegance through time. Other shades come and go in trends, but white is more or less always in.
Let’s start with the functionality of white shades. It may seem that stains are more noticeable on white facades, but the opposite is actually true. Stains and dust are more easily visible on darker coloured facades, so white is a great option to choose to avoid unnecessary stress about furniture care.
If you want to try something new instead of going for a modern minimalist look, a great option for adding colour to your kitchen is to combine white fronts with, for example, grey or other shades of grey fronts or design elements. Nevertheless, white is not only associated with modern minimalism or Scandinavian style. It is a versatile colour that can be used to implement any style. If you’re thinking of something more classic, such as a beam front, then white is the right choice to give your kitchen its true character. White also serves as a canvas to which a variety of decors and design elements can be successfully matched.
White tones are particularly prominent in Scandinavian styles, as the combination of white facades and solid wood surfaces, for example, will undoubtedly create a pleasant ambience and bring a feeling of cosiness. It is a versatile solution for any home and design. The biggest advantage of white is that it really makes a room seem bigger than it is, so white is particularly suitable for more compact and/or studio homes. The room will feel brighter, “airier” and much, much more pleasant to be in.
Every home is unique and has its own characteristics, but one thing is certain: white kitchen furniture will fit in any home, no matter what colour palette is used for the rest of the interior. White tones are neutral, natural and pleasant, brightening the room and making it feel cosier. Yes, trends change, but white will always be there. Whether in warmer or cooler shades, it doesn’t matter!
