No Demo Reno's Jenn Todryk Says This Kitchen Trend Isn't Going Anywhere Soon

Since the kitchen is a crucial area of your house, it's typically best to avoid committing to trends that won't last in that part of your home. Flashy, overly bold looks that don't fit your genuine style usually won't be worth it in the long run. However, it's arguable that the timeless white kitchen will never go out of style – or at least not anytime soon.

"It's going to be hard to kill white kitchens. I have a white kitchen. The whole white and gray movement really came on the heels of country style," Jenn Todryk, the star of HGTV's "No Demo Reno," told PaperCity. So, if you have a white kitchen, you should be happy to know that it won't be considered outdated in the near future. And if you don't have a white kitchen and are looking for a versatile, safe-yet-chic change, consider going for the white look to keep it clean and sleek.

Advantages of white kitchens

Since white kitchens will be in style for a while yet, the design choice will make most homes appear more attractive and elegant. "White kitchens have been around for decades, and they're still very much here. This color makes a space feel bigger and brighter, and you can't go wrong with it," Jenn Todryk told Homes & Gardens. So, not only are white kitchens timeless, but they can make people think that the room is more spacious and open than it technically is. If you believe your kitchen looks drab and too small in its current state, switching to a white kitchen can bring it to life and make it appear more airy.

A white kitchen is also an excellent canvas for various decorations, so never assume that white kitchens are boring. The clean, minimalist starting point allows you plenty of opportunities to incorporate unique touches. Just a couple of the many ways to add some personality to a white kitchen are to add plants or faux plants, or warm up the space with brown touches.

How to get the white kitchen look

Did Jenn Todryk inspire you and make you want a classic white kitchen for yourself? If you want to commit to the elegant look, your kitchen should at least have white walls. Expect to pay anywhere between $130 and $2,400 to get your kitchen painted, and remember that typically, the paint job for a larger kitchen will cost more than one for a smaller space. You may also want to consider switching to white countertops. The prices of new countertops vary greatly depending on the material you choose.

To fully commit to the white theme, look at white kitchen tables, such as the best-selling monochromatic Better Homes & Gardens Bankston Dining Table, available for $149 at Walmart. The table is spacious enough for six people and is 58.5 inches long by 35.5 inches wide by 30 inches high. Plus, it's rated 4 out of 5 five stars with nearly 1,500 reviews.

You may want to go even further with the theme by adding white chairs, like the white INGOLF Chair, selling for $70 at IKEA. The versatile white chair can seat people up to 243 pounds and has 4.3 stars with more than 500 ratings. After all, what looks more timelessly sleek than a white kitchen with a white table and chairs?
