I saw a pamphlet for modern white kitchen cabinetry at Home Depot and I immediately liked the design, but I wasn't quite sure how it would actually look in a home. It looked cool in the very contrived set up in their photo shoot, but I know from experience white kitchen ideas tend to not appear the same in your home as they do in the photos because you need a lot more color and design to fill the space. I began searching online for other spaces that used the same style cabinets and I found this home. I was drawn to the design because it is still very monochromatic and minimalist, but the modern kitchen colors that they chose still bring just a touch of warmth and pizazz to the space.
If I see another modern white kitchen design with marble countertops and stainless steel appliances, I might scream. I wish that the movers and shakers of modern kitchen design 2019 would get more creative and give us a larger variety in designs to get inspired by. I have a more eclectic style and I gravitate towards colorful and whimsical designs that are still elegant, but that you remember when you leave the room. If you have seen one all white kitchen you have seen them all -- am I right? I was particularly inspired by this black and white kitchen because they kept the design classic and modern but with some funky twists like the jade granite island, black beams, and gorgeous antiqued brass hardware.
I am pretty picky about modern white kitchen designs, because I don't want them to look cold and bare. A lot of people equate lack of color with lack of personality, but I certainly don't think that this has to be the case if you are using the right modern kitchen ideas throughout the space. If you are wanting to achieve a monochromatic look, it it so important to bring design and visual interest in through texture and pattern. Of course, you can stick with the usual white kitchen 2019 trends in neutrals, but vary the materials you use to give the space some dimension. Mix and match neutral tiles, countertops, backsplashes and fixtures.
I absolutely love this unique and more traditional twist on a classic modern white kitchen featured in these photos. Based on my personal tastes and experience in the fringes of the interior decor world, I usually I think that white kitchen designs can be a little too much on the stark side, as I prefer the spaces in my home to feel warm and welcoming. Obviously, you can still achieve this through a white color palette as they did by adding in some beautiful rich wood cabinetry to offset the rest of the white units. I think that a lot of people are scared of darker accent pieces because they feel that they will dwarf their space, but I find the exact opposite is the case when you add something like this to a room.
I really like this more organic take on a modern white kitchen because it doesn't feel quite as bare as a lot of similarly styled spaces. I think that the key to the success of this white kitchen is adding in a lot of different textures and materials to create depth and visual interest. There are several different types, cuts, and shades of wood used throughout the room including panelling on the ceiling, barstools, pantry cabinets constructed of it, and even a cool custom range hood. The warmth of the wood certainly makes the all white walls, cabinets and beams feel richer even though overall the materials and concept is quite simple.
My favorite part about this cool modern white kitchen is the awesome pendant lights hanging over the island,. It is funny how something as seemingly simply as a light fixture can totally make or break a space. Without those pendants you would see pretty much your average looking modern styled home filled with your typical white kitchen cabinets ideas, a large island, and sleek stainless steel appliances. Not that the room would look bad by any means but it definitely would have the upscale design factor that it does now. These photos really inspire me to want to add a long modern kitchen island like this to our home and find similarly bold lighting to highlight the beautiful and functional feature.
