White, Done Right

A white kitchen warms up with a charcoal island center stage, expansive wood flooring, and thoughtful lighting. Pendants above the island and under cabinet fixtures shoo away shadows, while accent lighting in upper display cabinets sets a mood and emphasizes grand proportions as well as the dramatic coffered ceiling.

The island defines the cooking zone, providing abundant work surface as it positions the sink near the refrigerator and range. Outside the work core, a beverage refrigerator and microwave oven are easily accessible to family and guests without interrupting meal prep activities.

Steal this secret: To create a unified-looking kitchen, have a game plan. Designers recommend that you consider the architecture first, then the flooring, the countertops, the cabinets, and, lastly, the appliances.
