5 White Kitchens to Inspire You


When a client asks for their kitchen to feel both timeless and classic, we naturally lean into a white backdrop paired with metals and glass to elevate the space, making it anything but ordinary. White kitchens feel open, clean, and modern, while leaving room for weaving in a client’s own personality and special, unique touches.

Classical Park Avenue showcases a white kitchen with cabinetry that features a metal bead, inset metal mesh, and chrome hardware. These added textures break up the otherwise all-white palette. The kitchen feels light and airy without feeling sterile or flat. Bringing in natural light to reflect off the white surfaces helps brighten the space even more for a design that remains timeless.

The Leonard Street kitchen offers a mixture of materials and textures for a cohesive and bright white kitchen. High gloss white cabinetry conveys a classic silhouette while subtle chrome and glass elements bring a tasteful amount of glamour. Smoked glass pendant lighting creates a focal point and ties the black-accented island seating and appliances in with the rest of the space. An off-white marble backsplash, countertop, and island brings warmth and texture. With each element in place, the kitchen is balanced for both comfort and functionality.

3. Lost Tree Way

The unique architecture of the Lost Tree Way kitchen called for some creative design solutions. To help accentuate the ceiling height and keep the space feeling open and bright, the largest surfaces – countertops and upper cabinets – were fabricated from bright white Corian and high-gloss lacquer respectively. These surfaces were paired with wood, stone, and stainless steel to warm up the space with the combination of textures and neutral colors. The stainless steel hoods and appliances reflect light into the space while the warm stone backsplash and island base adds an element of luxury.

The white kitchen in Madison Square Park features classic lines and tones, while furniture and pendant lighting reflect the Mid-Century Modern style throughout the rest of the home. High-gloss white cabinetry with slick, low-profile hardware creates a seamless visual line to keep the space simple and clean, while grey stone backsplash, counter, and kitchen island ground the lower portion of the room. The polished brass hardware on the lower cabinets offers that final touch of glam.

This Lakefront Home features two kitchen islands with white Glassos countertops and hardware-free cabinetry. Oversized chrome light fixtures with clear glass bulbs complement chrome seating and the exposed stainless steel hood that gives the space a contemporary feel. The heavily-veined marble backsplash in a dark grey palette is a standout moment in the otherwise light and bright kitchen. Incorporating a contrasting material brings an added level of depth into the kitchen while remaining refined and elegant.
