50 White Kitchen Designs That Will Never Go Out Of Style

White kitchen designs have been popular for years because they're sure to never go out of style, as noted by House Logic. Unlike past kitchen designs — like the early 2000s Tuscan kitchen or the 1970s pea green and orange kitchen — the all-white kitchen is timeless. It's minimalist and elegant, and is guaranteed to feel stylish for years because it doesn't use fleeting trends. While there is nothing wrong with color, and all-wood kitchens are the rage right now, some people like a more straightforward design.

But having an all-white kitchen doesn't mean you are getting a cookie-cutter kitchen that millions of other people have in their homes. There are many different ways to create a white kitchen, and they all tap into different design aesthetics and tastes. It's just as easy to design a sleek white kitchen as it is to create a European farmhouse kitchen or a Scandinavian kitchen. It all hinges on what kind of tiles you use, what kind of countertops you pick, and what kind of lamps you install. The possibilities are endless, and below are some excellent examples to inspire your next kitchen remodel. 

1. Marble backsplash kitchen

Backsplashes can make or break a kitchen, which is why some people like to save up so they can afford a marble backsplash. It gives a white kitchen a timeless class, especially when the marble on the wall matches the marble floor. 

2. Honeycomb backsplash kitchen

If you're looking for a more playful design, consider pairing your white kitchen cabinets with a white honeycomb backsplash. The honeycomb tiles will give your kitchen a vintage flair. 

3. White and gold kitchen

Give your all-white kitchen a kick of class by adding in gold accents in the form of gold handles, knobs, and trim. 

4. Stainless steel details

Keep your kitchen looking white and crisp by incorporating chrome accents into the design, like a chrome faucet and chrome pendant lights. 

5. White luxury kitchen

Create a white luxury kitchen by using cabinets that extend to the ceiling and top them off with super thick trim. This drags the eye upwards and makes your kitchen feel bigger and airier. 

6. Modern white kitchen

The shape of your cabinets will determine what kind of kitchen you will have. Choose thin, rectangular cabinets with straight trim for a modern aesthetic, and add some texture to the space by decorating with large wooden serving boards. 

7. Farmhouse white kitchen

Similarly, you can evoke a farmhouse aesthetic by choosing a scalloped window trim and a batten board island. 

8. Rattan kitchen

Give your white kitchen an earthy touch by adding rattan-backed chairs to your kitchen table. This looks especially nice when paired with gold light fixtures and pine floating shelves.

Make your all-white kitchen memorable by using two large gold pendent light fixtures that hang directly above the island. They will create a statement every time you walk into the room.

10. Black and white kitchen

Create a timeless kitchen by accenting your white cabinets and countertops with black drawer pulls and pendent lights. 

11. Kitchen with French doors

Give your kitchen a touch of charm by installing French doors in its entryway. Not only will it give your all-white kitchen a bit of whimsy, but you can also close the doors and hide the clutter when the space gets a little too messy. 

12. Add small glass cabinets

Break up the visual bulk of a kitchen by incorporating glass front cabinets in the space. In this photo, the top cabinets all have glass doors illuminated by lights, which allows the owner to display their favorite bowls and pitchers. 

13. Don't be afraid of crystal

Your kitchen will feel instantly more elegant when you swap out your chrome pendant lights in favor of crystal pendants. 

14. Cut back on cabinets

If you don't need a lot of kitchen storage, then consider taking down your top cabinets to reduce the visual bulk of the room. The end result will be a Scandinavian and minimalist kitchen.

15. Modern farmhouse kitchen

You can give your white kitchen a subtle farmhouse feel by choosing your kitchen lights wisely. Hang chrome farmhouse pendants above the island, and add a whimsical wrought iron chandelier over the breakfast nook. 

16. Accented minimalist white kitchen

17. Add some texture

Add texture to your kitchen by using thin subway tiles, creating shiplap cabinet doors, and adding a batten board pattern to your ceiling. 

18. Scandinavian kitchen

If you like a lot of symmetry in your house, then create harmony in your kitchen by swapping out cabinets for deep drawers that will make the space look more cohesive. 

19. White French kitchen

You will feel like you're cooking up breakfast in a Parisian kitchen each morning if you add a row of French kitchen cabinets near the ceiling. The glass fronts will make the kitchen feel airier.

There is a reason why subway tiles are so popular as a backsplash: They're timeless and create a clean aesthetic. 

21. Add wooden planks

Make your kitchen memorable by adding an unexpected detail in its design. Swap out the usual tile backsplash in favor of a wooden one. It will add a touch of warmth to an all-white kitchen. 

22. Chevron backsplash

Your kitchen will feel modern and up-to-date when you incorporate a white chevron backsplash. The vertical lines of the backsplash will break up the horizontal lines of the cabinets, creating more interest in the monochrome space.

Your kitchen will instantly feel magazine-worthy if you upgrade your wooden island for a white marble waterfall island instead. It will make a bold visual statement. 

24. White and gray granite countertops

Break up the white monochrome color scheme of your kitchen by incorporating white and gray granite countertops on both the island and counters. 

25. Add unexpected lighting

If you like a funkier design aesthetic, swap out traditional kitchen island pendant lights in favor of a black track light. In this example, the contrasting black color pulls the eye upwards, making the space feel bigger. 

26. White brick kitchen

People love the exposed brick in lofts, and you can bring that kind of modern texture to your own kitchen by swapping out your backsplash for a white brick wall. If you don't have exposed brick in your kitchen, you can make a faux wall using this DIY tutorial from @jenniferdecorates on TikTok.

If you don't have a large family that requires a massive fridge, then add a charming touch to your kitchen by swapping out your stainless steel fridge for a white retro one.

Contrast a sleek, all-white kitchen with a black eating nook. Use a white table to continue the all-white theme, and then contrast it with black chairs. This gives some dimension to the room. 

29. Remove all cabinet handles

For a truly minimalist white kitchen, consider picking out white cabinets without any handles to create a sleek and spartan space.

Create the illusion of an elegant vaulted ceiling by installing a batten board design on it. It will immediately upgrade the space. 

34. Black and white tile floors

Give your all-white kitchen a retro touch by adding in a black and white tiled floor.

If you have a small white kitchen without an island, use that open space by adding in a round wooden table. The circular table adds a cozy touch to the room, and will entice you to pull up a chair and eat your meal there.

Rather than going with a white laminate countertop or white marble counter, try for something different by installing a black laminate countertop.

Shake things up in your all-white kitchen by opting for horizontal top cabinets rather than your standard vertical ones. This will make your kitchen look more modern and unique.
