White kitchen cabinets make the kitchen look bright and opened up. However, too much of white color in your kitchen can make it look sterile and hospital-like. Going with a light monochromatic color scheme is a good idea if you have a small kitchen design. Still, no matter what the size of kitchen is, one needs to add some elements in the kitchen, that give a hint of color. To balance out or complement the white kitchen cabinets, use these kitchen ideas.
Black is a color that speaks complete elegance and style. What's more, it is so versatile that it can be used in both, a contemporary as well as a traditional setting. Why not use the charm of this color to create a style statement then, and design your kitchen with black cabinets? Now, as beautiful as it may look, this is the color you have to play safe with. While a little can add the much-needed missing element from your overall design, an excess can ruin the look of your kitchen and make it drab, overpowering, and even claustrophobic. On the positive side, this color can be combined with almost every other one to create a wonderful color combination that speaks for itself.
Kitchen backsplash provides good visual effects on walls which are of a light shade. You can also have a small backsplash behind the kitchen sink. It can be a simple tiled pattern or a little mosaic. Take a look at the four pictures above to get a better idea on how to match the flooring and backsplash with white kitchen cabinets.
There are a variety of colored appliances in kitchens, like the microwave, coffee maker, chimney, dishwasher, and cooking stove. If the appliances are white, it is easier to choose cabinet colors for the simple reason that there is already a uniformity in the kitchen, and all you have to do is find a common shade that will match all these appliances, and use it for the cabinets. A few colors which can be used are lemon green, yellow, teal, dark blue, red, orange, mustard, pink, purple, and wooden brown.
Now, concentrate on the decoration. The decoration and molding of these cabinets should make them look heavy. This is the first rule. To make them look massive, you need to put on heavy crown molding. You also need to give special attention to the height. You can also have them reaching all the way to the height of your ceiling, while you get the walls behind the kitchen countertops with vertically-installed groove boards and simple tongues. You also need to give special attention to the knobs, handles, hinges, pulls, latches, covers, locks, and keys. All these factors must reflect the heightened sophistication of urban lifestyle, and hence, make sure they are made using materials, like cast iron, brass, or porcelain. Also, get bail pulls, ring pulls, or drop pulls; flush, butt, half mortise, barrel or offset hinges, etc., to get a kitchen design, which has a perfect Victorian feel.
