The Spice of Life

More than 50% of kitchens we design for homeowners in Delaware County, PA area are predominately white.  There are many compelling reasons to select a white kitchen.  A white pallet provides a clean, crisp, and classic vibe to a dream kitchen.  White works with any style – modern, transitional or traditional.  White makes the selection of other kitchen products and components easier and less stressful.  White is timeless.  It never goes out of style and because of white’s almost universal appeal, white motifs can enhance the resale value of homes in Delaware County, PA area.  Another major reason why homeowners in Delaware County, PA area select white kitchens is that white reflects light, enabling smaller spaces to appear larger and providing an airy, open feel to the space.

If not designed properly, white kitchens can appear to be sterile and cold. Those challenges however are easily addressed by mixing a combination of rich hues that can serve as focal points and offset white’s neutrality.  We often address the sterility of white with a combination of gray for backsplashes and countertops.  Black is another color that helps to create a pleasing contrast in a predominately white kitchen.  Black paint can be used for window trim to offset white walls. Black pendants that hang over a gray or white island serve the same purpose. It’s easy and cost-effective.

Gold and brass can also be used to create pleasing contrasts to a white motif.  Brass faucets, cabinet hardware, range hoods, and light fixtures can create statement-making focal points that spice up any kitchen in Delaware County, PA area. That’s one reason why brushed gold fixtures are one of the hottest trends not only in Delaware County, PA area, but also nationwide. 

Wood tones add warmth to almost any kitchen.  Wood floors, bar stools, butcher blocks, and vent hoods add an element of comfort to create a pleasing and pleasant contrast in a white kitchen.

Pattern floors and/or backsplashes are other options for homeowners in Delaware County, PA area to bring warmth to a white kitchen.
