How to Liven Up an All-White Kitchen

The all-white kitchen has been popular for years. But, as they say, even the best things must come to an end.

Homeowners have started shifting from bright white cabinets, white subway tile backsplashes, and white marble countertops to more colorful options. If you’re looking for ideas on how to bring a little color into your kitchen, we have some ideas for you!

Natural Wood In The Kitchen

One trend that’s gaining popularity is the use of natural wood, and not just for the cabinets.

Investing in a beautiful piece of natural, live edge wood to use instead of the typical granite or quartz countertops has become very popular and looks stunning. 

Of course, you can also choose a nice natural wood for cabinetry or a kitchen island. The colors are incredibly versatile, so you can pair them with just about any color or type of countertop or decorative feature.

You can also choose wood for the flooring, walls, and trim, giving your kitchen a warm, organic feel.

After remodeling, this kitchen blended dark and light-colored cabinets, natural wood flooring, and Quartzite countertops to create a beautiful kitchen.

Deep, Dark, and Bold Colored Cabinets

Shifting about as far away as possible from the all-white cabinets that have ruled the kitchen for so long are moody, dark-colored cabinets.

Dark blues, greens, and even black cabinets are making their way into more and more kitchens. 

While these cabinets can be a beautiful addition to your space, it is vital to make sure you have enough lighting to offset the dark colors and avoid making your kitchen look small or closed in.

Colorful Kitchen Backsplashes

Adding a colorful backsplash is an excellent place to start if you only have the budget or the time to make one small update in your white kitchen.

Bright blues, natural stone, and even gemstone-colored backsplashes can be a great way to introduce some color and updated style into your kitchen. You can do small mosaic tiles, large square tiles, or anything in between with these colors and materials.

Have fun with your backsplash. Pretty much anything goes!

Metallic Light Fixtures & Other Finishes

An easy way to add a lot of style to your kitchen is by paying attention to the finishes. Installing a metallic light fixture like metallic pendant lights will give your kitchen some character and double as a conversation piece. 

Having metallic door pulls installed on your cabinets along with a matching range hood is another simple way to slowly steer away from the all-white kitchen.

Range hoods, especially, can add so much color and life to the kitchen. There are tons of different styles to choose from and can be a great starting point when redesigning your kitchen.

Colored Farm-Style Sink

The all-white farm-style kitchen trend may be on its way out, but the farm-style itself seems to be sticking around.

If you want to update the trend, you can get a colored sink. Popular colors include muted earth tones like sandstone or grey, as well as elegant grey-blue hues. You can also get metallic farm-style sinks in stainless steel or even copper. Whether you want to take on a complete remodel all at once or prefer to slowly steer away from the white kitchen by making minor updates one at a time, we are here to help. We can find custom solutions on your budget and make your kitchen look beautiful and on-trend.
