Clean and fresh is the look that is most desirable for the kitchen space and nothing spells these two words better than a White Kitchen. White is the top most choice of home owners and is also the top choice when it comes to the kitchen cabinetry. The contemporary manufacturers have even introduced numerous variations of white. A good example would be the polished enamel that looks like white glass. There is also the choice of quartz type counter tops that have solid surface and come in bright shiny whites. If you chose to go with white laminates you could save almost 50% in comparison to stone and solid surface counter tops. As for most designers and high end architects they prefer white concrete over all else. No matter what material you chose; you won’t ever regret deciding upon a White Kitchen.

Here is WHY?

  • Since white color is a reflector of light it makes even a small kitchen seem spacious.
  • Any kind of artwork and accessories stand out against white and create a great combination.
  • White color can be used into and transformed into any kitchen style.
  • You can easily bring change into a white kitchen by simply adding some color by adding some colored shelves or buying brightly colored kitchen appliances.

Now that we have told you why you should go for a White Kitchen; in all honesty we must tell you how to maintain it as well. Because if you have never had a White Kitchen chances are the very thought of maintaining the white cleanliness of it in a place where all sorts of spices and oils are going to be used is frightening. This is why we are going to tell you all about its maintenance.

Here is HOW?

  • The daily cooking can turn your white into yellow. To stop this you have to ensure that dirt and grease do not accumulate on your cabinets and counter tops. Soon as you start frying, boiling or grilling; turn on the exhaust fan.
  • The time tested method to remove the dirt on your White Kitchen is by cleaning your cupboards with a mixture of 2 cups of warm water, 1 cup vinegar and 1 tablespoon of baking soda. Give your cabinets a monthly wash in this fizzy mixture and you will never have any cause to worry.
  • For most of the areas in your White Kitchen a simple surface wipe with a mild dishwashing liquid coupled with warm water is more than enough.
  • To keep your white tiles snowy white combine baking soda with vinegar and warm water and create a paste. Apply this paste onto the tiles and then scrub the grouts with a toothbrush and simply wipe the tiles.

There is always a debate on whether white kitchens are a thing of the past; but I have often found that those who love them won’t have it any other way and if the current trend is anything to go by…the modern kitchen concept along with the general trend is towards neat and clean lines and looks of design so White Kitchens are actually catching on rather than going out of favor.
