We love white and white kitchens seem to be gracing a majority of kitchens right now. White exudes not only cleanliness, simplicity, purity and beauty but it is also timeless and classic; making it a perfect choice for many of us. This is one color we believe will never go out of style. That being said, there is one factor to think about when you are doing a white kitchen- it can look stark and cold. The kitchen, being the heart of the home, should feel warm and inviting. You can still keep it clean and beautiful but also bring in the warmth by adding a few key elements.

Key elements to add warmth:

  • Color: Don’t get us wrong, we love white, but adding just a touch of color helps it feel warmer. This can be done by adding flowers, cookbooks, baskets/bowls of fruit or vegetables and even cookware can add just that little bit of color.

  • Texture: This includes items such as fruits, flowers and plants. All of these bring not only color but also texture. We think adding in some kind of greenery makes the room come alive and helps complete it.

  • Rug: A pretty and colorful rug can also bring warmth. Not only will your feet thank you but it makes the space more inviting for your guests and family.

  • Wood: There is something so special abut the magic of wood- it doesn’t take much, but it instantly adds warmth. The can be achieved by displaying some unique cutting boards, a cake stand or dough bowl. Wooden spoons are a nice touch when placed in a beautiful utensil holder.
