While kitchen trends come and go, the white kitchen is a classic look that will never go out of style. White is clean, simple, bright and airy – which is why so many choose it as their go-to cabinetry color. So how do you take that all-white kitchen and give it a punch of personality that sets it apart from the rest?

Thoughtful Color

If you love color but aren’t ready to embrace a full colored kitchen, mixing white and colored cabinetry is a great way to satisfy your need for a little more color! In this kitchen, a beautiful blue island, gorgeous brushed gold hardware, a few colorful accessories and an amazing wood and tile floor really set this space apart! Keeping the hardware and countertops the same throughout helps to keep this look feeling coordinated.
