White kitchens are all the rage at the moment, offering clean lines and sophistication which can instantly brighten up a dreary cooking space. This sophisticated kitchen is simple yet striking, a product of interior design excellence. We have lent some style inspiration from it to show how you can achieve the same look in your own home.
1. White ‘Marble’
There is one particular feature which makes this kitchen so stunning: marble. This space is enveloped in this elegant patterned stone. However, if you’re trying to achieve a “timeless” design, we would argue that marble isn’t necessarily the best choice, as the characteristics of the stone often give into the wear and tear of every day kitchen functions.
There is another luxurious stone that is fast developing into the frontrunner when it comes to creating fixtures and fittings that are aesthetically pleasing whilst, unlike marble, are also practically robust and long-lasting. We are talking about our very own Gemini Quartz range.
The beauty of this stone is that the customer is able to mimic the classic looks of natural stones (such as marble) or achieve a kitchen worktop with a greater consistency (than perhaps Granite) in the patterning, in the knowledge their worktop will stand the test of time.
Our Gemini Quartz and Gemini Quartz Mythology ranges include a selection of beautiful white stone slabs that would truly compliment this sophisticated look. Two of our favourites are Olympus White and Elysian Grey– veined offerings which look truly fantastic.
Alternatively, if you are looking for something with a little more sparkle, our best selling Aspen Ice may tick all the right boxes.
Alternately, try Neolith, our new highly technical, robust and long-lasting material which provides striking aesthetics that rival the likes of marble. Neolith Calacatta, a herringbone-patterned effect slab would provide a striking decoration to your whitened kitchen space. In addition, Neolith will perform for you in ways that other stones can’t, owning a superior resistance to abrasions, extreme temperatures and stains.
2. Stylish White Cabinets
White on white is what lends this kitchen a fashionable, sophisticated edge and acts as a perfect pedestal for the beautiful stone fixed upon it. Why not make a project out of it with a spot of DIY? We think this step-by-step guide on how to paint your kitchen cabinets is great.
3. Functional Kitchen Island
Do you have the square footage to fit an island topped with richly veined Neolith Calacatta or an Olympus White Gemini Quartz slab? A unit like this one, with seating space on one side and a useful storage unit on the other adds serious style and functionality.
4. Pendant Lighting
Upgrading your lighting is a quick and easy way to create a statement and add functionality to your kitchen. If you have an island or dining table in your kitchen space, pendant lights can offer a statement whilst also adding a valuable well-lit working space.
And finally, if you want your kitchen to stand the test of time, think neutrals for your complimentary pieces — they’re less likely to look dated as colour trends come and go, helping finish the everlasting appeal of your new kitchen.
A cushioned bar stool like this simple design will help create an inviting charm to your breakfast bar or island.
