How to Style a White and Wood Kitchen
There are a number of styles that you can create with your new kitchen, and the colours, cabinet doors and worktops selected will have a large influence over the final look. White and wood kitchens are a popular option in many homes, with white cabinets providing a fantastic blank canvas and wood adding warmth as an inviting option for both cabinets and worktops.
Pale, pastel shades are often the colours of choice for shabby chic kitchens – Farrow & Ball’s Pointing is used for the cabinets in this kitchen. Whilst not a pure white, combined with the oak worktops it creates an inviting look. Open shelving and vintage appliances with kitsch accessories dotted around give this kitchen a shabby chic feel that is easy to achieve. Replacing appliances might be an expensive option for styling your white and wood kitchen, but adding shelving and fun accessories are a fantastic option that will not cost the earth.
Farmhouse kitchens are a popular option, providing a classic style that looks fantastic in any number of settings. This particular kitchen uses a Farrow & Ball’s All White on Traditional cabinet doors which provides a stark contrast against the warming hues of the oak used throughout the room. The prevalence of oak in this kitchen enhances the farmhouse style, and this has been picked up in the accessories, such as the bar stools pictured, to create a cohesive look. Selecting more rustic accessories is a fantastic way to give a white and wood kitchen a farmhouse style.
White and wood kitchens may not be the obvious option for a contemporary option, but this example shows that with the right appliances and hardware, you can create a thoroughly modern look with more traditional options. The modern look of the chrome cabinet and drawer pulls and handles , combined with the high gloss black glass splashback are a sleek, contemporary choice, and the black appliances create a striking monochrome theme throughout the kitchen. The warm wooden floors and worktops soften the overall look for a streamlined, modern choice that would suit any home.
