White Hot Kitchens

These aren’t your grandma’s white kitchens. Wait, maybe they are. White is making a comeback in the hub of the home, and designers say it’s because the crisp, clean look offers the comfort and simplicity of the kitchens of yesteryear.

The resurgence also makes for unlimited design possibilities, serving as a ready canvas for affordable tweaks like candy-colored cabinet pulls, and easy-install backsplashes. Meanwhile, using white to open up dark kitchens in small spaces accounts for the white kitchen boom in apartments and cottage-style homes.

Here, we dig into the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) Design Competition archives to deliver great ideas from Certified Kitchen Designers that you can use in your next remodel.
