While recent years have showcased an increased gravitation towards color in the kitchen, the allure of the white kitchen has never truly waned. The color itself tends to exude a fresh, clean appeal that caters to the spotless ideals of germaphobes, fastidious minimalists, and homeowners who like their kitchen to shine.

Designing with a white kitchen in mind doesn’t necessarily mean pops of color can’t liven it up. In the above Jamestown, Rhode Island kitchen—part of a months-long restoration by This Old House TV—the white countertops, walls, ceiling slabs combined with our Matte White and Chrome 42” Refrigerator are enhanced by natural wood which offers the perfect point of contrast while preserving the overall feel of an all-white kitchen.

In this Stephen Alexander Homes-designed home located in Virginia Beach, gray-and-white tiles, natural wood floors, a white countertop with swirls of gray, and two of our Stainless Steel refrigeration units add the perfect pop of color to keep this sleek white kitchen looking far from boring.

The conclusion? Truly well-designed white kitchens never go out of style. Their versatility alone is a huge plus—pops of color and/or interest can be added through various accents and decor elements while major appliance adjustments (such as incorporating one of our brightly hued or neutral-toned refrigeration units), are relatively small changes to make for an enduring impact.
