And since the average homeowner will spend tens of thousands of dollars when doing a major kitchen remodel, it’s crucial to do it right. So how do you accomplish that? We’ve assembled a number of white kitchen ideas to simplify the design process.
When spending a lot of money on a remodel you’ll want to create a space you love, but if you’re planning on selling at some point you’ll also want to secure a return on your investment (you’ll also want to like the room yourself 20 years from now as your tastes change).
Engineered white quartz is durable and non-porous so it’s more sanitary and resists stains, scratches and corrosion. White concrete can achieve that pure white look and it’s also incredibly durable. White glass can be pricey, but in addition to being sleek and bright it’s also non-porous and perhaps the most hygienic option. If you’re on a budget, today’s laminates mimic more expensive granite and marble and also resist scratching and chipping.
European styling: If you love the European appeal of cabinetry, than modern styled are for you. From rich colors and shiny lacquer finishes, to exotic wood appearances and streamlined hardware. European cabinetry has an undeniable aesthetic that your kitchen or bathroom will enjoy. Determine if your adjacent areas lend itself to European styling décor. Minimalist furniture, wide open spaces, and modern lines are all characteristic of interiors that well compliment your modern styled cabinetry.
Subtle Pastels Pastel-colored kitchens are trending as a way to create a pop of color and interest without making a room’s aesthetic too heavy or dark. Especially popular pastel choices include pale shades of blue and green.
Carefully Choose Your Shelves: If you have metal shelves, try laying a cutting board or tray to allow storing of smaller items like flatware, food or salt and pepper shakers. Save drawer space for less attractive items like aluminum foil and plastic wrap, and keep pretty things at eye level.
