White on White – The White Kitchen Trend
Last updated 15 Nov 2021
With most of our time spent indoors, the kitchen is becoming the most significant space in the home, at the same time the need arose to design a space with a neutral colour that fades into the overall design of the house. Walking the line between luxurious and minimalistic with a variety of nuances and characteristics, the white kitchen is gaining momentum in the kitchen design scene. We’ve gathered a few tips for you so that you can get the most out of your white kitchen.

Warm up the Space
Even though white is the name of the game, one must not forget that the kitchen is part of the house and therefore in its design, it must project warmth and preserve an inviting appearance. To avoid a cold and sterile feeling, it is recommended to select a few elements that will disrupt the monotony of the cold white and that will provide splashes of colour and warmth to the space. Plants or herbs of an intense green colour, placed in a decorative vase on a white work surface would do the trick wonderfully.

Use Natural Lighting
High electricity prices and environmental awareness contribute greatly to energy-saving LED lamps. This trend is welcomed but fraught with potential home-lighting catastrophes in the form of white fluorescent bulbs. To prevent an office atmosphere in your kitchen, choose lighting with a warm colour, not fluorescent. Warm natural light completes and emphasizes white surfaces without creating a cold feeling. If you are doing up your kitchen, have a design layout that would allow natural light to enter, which are essential for the ventilation of an active kitchen, among other things.
Large windows, balcony or backyard doors allow the light to enter and warm up the space and ventilate an active kitchen. Featuring Caesarstone latest Whitelight Collection in 5222 Adamina
To break the uniform appearance of the space, you can incorporate segments of wood into your kitchen. The segment, such as a wood-like laminate cabinet surface, or a portable element such as knife slots or cutting board for space-saving convenience.

Textures and Finishes
A colour’s character is often determined by its material. When designing a white kitchen, it is important to remember that for different materials, different finishes influence the way the colour reacts to the material, and what amount of light will reflect from it. A glossy finish, with a reflective characteristic, gives depth to the white while reflecting other colour elements. On the contrary, a matte white finish, which absorbs the light, allows for the white colour to appear as a single unified piece.
