The use of texture in an all-white kitchen is the key to creating that welcoming vibe the heart of your home deserves. Best of all, accessories and furnishings let your personality shine through without having to splash too much colour throughout the design - unless you want to, of course. First of all, look to the floor as an area to liven up with a patterned rug, which is also a great option if you’re tight on space.
Metallic statement lighting really makes an impact on white, so choose gold or silver tones to match your individual style. For open-plan spaces, experiment with furniture to add visual interest with natural wood for warmth or black for a modern edge. When you can’t do without colour, adds splashes of your favourite hues with wall clocks, painted shelves, colourful kitchenware, artwork and potted plants.
By this stage, you might be thinking that an all-white kitchen sounds wonderful. That is, if only you could keep the kids from coming in, the frypan oil from spitting on the wall and the red wine from sloshing on the white cabinets. Fair point, but we’ve got the solution to keeping your white paint clean and bright. Dulux Easycare Kitchen has a grease proof formulation that’s tough enough to resist everyday cooking stains. Plus, it's easy to wash and the colour won't fade. So, you can let the kids back into the kitchen.
Even if, over many years, the ‘brightness’ of your design dulls with heavy use, this is the easiest colour scheme to update. After all, you’re only ever a lick of fresh, white paint away from a gleaming, all-white kitchen that’s as good as new.
