How to Create a White Kitchen Design

You probably already know this, but white kitchens are always popular.
Amongst other things, the secret behind their many years of success is their versatility.

White Kitchens Give the Illusion of Space

If you have a small kitchen, then going white could be the answer to all of your problems. Creating a clean and simple visual for the eye and reflecting all of the available light will give the illusion of a much larger space.

Choose White to Make a Kitchen Appear Lighter

Talking of light, if you’re working in a kitchen that doesn’t have the luxury of much natural light, a white palette will reflect what minimal light you do have.

This basement kitchen above is a project of ours, and is a perfect example of how to make a space lacking in natural light look spacious. It appeared in Scotland’s 25 Beautiful Homes magazine and the TV programme Scotland’s Best Homes!

A white kitchen will brighten up the space. If you opt for a gloss finish, it will make your light go even further.

Here are some of our favourite white kitchens from Second Nature:

The Trendy Handleless Kitchen - Remo Matt White

Matt handleless kitchens are super stylish, but it’s the little details that make the difference. This modern kitchen has an injection of bold with its metal accents and patterned tiles.

The Scandinavian Kitchen - Matt White with Alpine Smoked Larch

Wood is the perfect partner for a white kitchen if you’re trying to achieve an uber-cool Scandinavian vibe (hugely popular right now). We love the dark tones of these alpine cabinets that add warmth to the contrasting white gloss.

And for a real Scandi-feel kitchen, here is one of ours. We love the khaki-green splashback and open wooden shelving to complete the perfect natural modern kitchen:

The White Kitchen with Statement Worktop - Porter White Matt

This kitchen style has really broad appeal, whether your taste is traditional or modern. Dressed up with this bold marble worktop and an injection of style, it’s certainly full of character.

If you’d like some help getting it ‘white’ (sorry) for your next project, please get in touch!
