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.
The first step is to paint the walls. Considering the white kitchen cabinets, the colors that will look great are aqua blue, light Persian blue, light shade of lavender, gray and medium bright red, or a dark maroon. These wall colors will help to balance the white colored cabinets. You can also go with soft light shades of blue, yellow or green, if you wish the cabinets to blend in, but still look attractive.
You can also consider adding a few wall art designs, to create visual accents. You can use stencils or brushes to paint some elegant and small patches of design on the walls. For example, on aqua blue walls, white colored floral stencils and on the white cabinets, aqua colored floral stencil art will create a nice contrast kitchen design and color combination. You can also use wallpapers for a single wall if you want to introduce some interest on the kitchen walls.
This is an important element when using the white kitchen design ideas, whether it comes to remodeling or designing a new kitchen. Go with wooden flooring for your kitchen, but the shade of the wood should be a medium shade and not very light. If you want to go for a dark-colored wooden flooring, then make sure other elements like wall colors are also bright or very dark in shade.
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.
