A CLEAN & CONTEMPORARY KITCHEN
This streamlined kitchen is awash with natural light. The white and walnut cabinets create a contemporary backdrop and the wooden floors ground the space. The white stools surround the lacquered counter which can be used as a breakfast area. «Generally going all white’ is a popular choice for kitchen cabinets. It is classy and elegant.
A MODERN MIX
An all-white kitchen is a chic retreat. The white cabinetry, matching cook top, and grey work surface establish the kitchen area in this open-plan home. The granite flooring breaks the monotony and adds life to the space. Opt for inbuilt appliances and matching hood for a pleasant ambiance. Variations of white or grey kitchens don t go out of fashion.
WHITE AND WOODY
The stainless steel chairs and sliding storage create a dramatic contrast plus it saves space too!
Colourful wall art in a white kitchen is a good trick! The other white elements include white blinds, chairs, cabinets and walls. The wooden countertop below the long hood adds rustic appeal to the space. «Using white in the kitchen creates a feeling of open space, highlighting the appliances and furniture and allowing them to be the focus of attention. These kitchens can be accessorised with contrasting colour walls or ceilings, steel finish appliances, wooden floor or fresh flowers. One can also include cutlery in neon colours to make the kitchen more lively,» adds Dhananjay Chaturvedi, Managing Director, Miele India.
WHITE AND BEIGE LINES
The sleek units hide away clutter, while the beige backsplash create a design flow in this kitchen. «White colour on the cabinetry is used to give the kitchen space a visually larger look vis-a-vis its actual size.
RELAXED KITCHEN DINNER
Cane furniture and wooden table-top teamed with white cabinets give the space an uncluttered, relaxed feel. To enhance the overall decor, add elements and character with cage lights and colourful flowers.
WHITE IS TIMELESS
Ashish Taneja, CEO, Zolijns, says, «The use of white makes a kitchen look bigger, brighter and more spacious. The kitchen here provides a flawless space for showcasing other elements such as wood finishes, lighting fixtures and accessories and creates a fashionable and functional space. I’d suggest going pure white with accessories as well. Just add a surprise factor with unusually huge ceiling lights.»
A kitchen with walnut wooden cabinets and flooring gives a dose of traditional elegance. The custom-made cabinets, marble countertops and flooring goes well with the white on white backsplash and the stylish faucet. «Kitchens are now the conversation starters in modern households. Tiles are out and are being replaced with back splashes in coloured glass. This white kitchen area brightens up the space and looks clean» says Manish Jain, Director, Bleu Concepts.
LIGHT & AIRY WHITE KITCHEN
Ankush Aggarwal, CEO, ANSA Interiors, explains, «This white kitchen offers an unchallenged style and elegance. The look is airy, illuminating and open. As white reflects light, it enhances the brightness of all natural or artificial lights present in the kitchen. The white cabinets offer a neutral back drop for colours to splash in. The strong contrast — evident on the countertop, flooring and accessories — can boost the entire look! Or, you can also opt for white or black flooring and countertop, and have the flexibility to change accessories; thereby changing the entire look of the kitchen.’
ADD A SHOT OF COLOUR
Bring change with a wall cabinet in your favourite colour. Lime green combined with white makes for an elegant and eye catching combination. Just add an island table and some comfy chairs for a nice breakfast area!
