Classic White – Not Grandma’s Kitchen After a seemingly endless winter, it’s time for spring-cleaning! And, there’s no better way to renew, refresh and clean up than with a good remodeling! Just as spring expresses flowers and fresh linens, express your fresh new look with tile, hardwood, laminate or one of the amazing new vinyls on the market. And, while we love the classics, we want our “new and fresh” to pop … no boring allowed! None of which comes to mind when you read “White Kitchen.” Well, we had similar thoughts, until the insatiable draw of Pinterest discovered boards dedicated completely to white kitchens. Oh the appeal! Definitely clean, sleek, and timeless is the white kitchen.
But is white practical as well as desirable?
White kitchens make the room feel spacious and warm. White is a timeless color. And, surprisingly, white is the most “marketable” color. A white kitchen never goes “out of style.” White appliances are typically in stock and usually cost less than other finishes. Bonus! That leaves you extra money to spend on your flooring. White minimizes nicks, chips and blemishes on both cabinets and appliances. In general, white allow for easy updating of any kitchen.
Naturally, flooring becomes a focal point in white kitchens … bonus!
Hardwood flooring an excellent match to your white kitchen! And, dark hardwood flooring looks absolutely chic. Besides being trendy, hardwood floors provide a cozy, warm feeling, much like white kitchens.
Hardwood floor is also incredibly durable, something very important for a kitchen. Best of all, hardwood provides a good return on your investment should you choose to sell your home. (Always think ahead!) If hardwood is not in the budget, there are gorgeous laminates available at lower price points and even some remarkable resilient vinyl styles that will bring the spring inside.
Go ahead, brighten and whiten your kitchen this spring!
