White Kitchen Ideas
According to the 2023 Houzz Kitchen Trend Survey, white cabinets remain the most popular, with 40% of homeowners opting for white when renovating their kitchen.
1. Bright Kitchen
Designer Ann Decker knows that big windows make a white kitchen look bright and fresh. If you want to do an all-white kitchen, maximize natural light for an airy feel.
2. White Marble Kitchen
McIntosh Moorman Interior Design shows us that marble paired with white is a chic kitchen combination. The tiled marble backsplash adds an extra touch of class.
3. Simple White Kitchen
la SHED should be applauded for creating this white kitchen. Focused on simplicity, the white and wood complement each other while the different materials provide texture.
4. Neutral Kitchen With Color Splashes
Here you have a bright yellow stove contrasting against dark cabinets and white walls. A pop of color adds a fun element to a white kitchen.
5. Dark Cabinets and White Walls in the Kitchen
Just because your walls are white doesn’t mean your cabinets have to be. Choosing a darker cabinet color like Brittany’s cabinets can set your space apart.
6. White Shiplap Rustic Kitchen
Among beautiful modern kitchens, white shiplap is a favorite. When you cover your kitchen walls with it, you create a clean rustic look. Courtney Bishop covers cabinet doors in shiplap for more continuity.
7. White Kitchen with Wood Ceiling Beams
Danish design company, Garde Hvalsoe, used wood to bring warmth into this kitchen. With beautiful traditional white kitchens, light wood hues offer Scandinavian style.
8. Wood Kitchen Flooring
Wood floors are popular in all kitchens, no matter the color. But by choosing wood for your white kitchen, you’re adding depth and texture to an otherwise plain space. Jen Langston chose a lighter stain for the floor to keep things fresh. Beautiful farmhouse kitchens often feature white and wood colors, and with this example, it’s easy to see why.
9. Warm White Undertones in the Kitchen
If your kitchen has shadowy corners, opt for white with warmer undertones to make your space feel cozy.
10. White on White Kitchen
Naturally, we should all take a page out of POCO Designs‘ book and consider going white on white. White walls with a white floor and white cabinets put the focus where it really counts, on the people and the food.
Gray Kitchen Ideas
Gray is a classic neutral that can be warm or cool, depending on the shade you choose.

When you want to create a modern kitchen that is also family-friendly, black or white can feel stark. Loves Interiors shows us that gray is much softer and yet still neutral enough for metallic pops and modern sensibilities.
13. Warm Gray Walls and Cabinets
When your home has wood floors, it makes sense to keep the rest of your decor on the warm side. Like when Johnston Park Interiors used a lovely warm gray for both the walls and the cabinet. It’s a perfect kitchen for lingering over your morning coffee.
14. Sleek Gray Cabinets
Is your kitchen wall-to-wall cabinet space? That shouldn’t inhibit you. This kitchen by Modulnova Twenty features sleek stormy gray cabinets for a modern look.

Since gray is basically pastel black, it seems only natural that you would lean towards other pastel colors in your gray kitchen. Light green, like the backsplash in this kitchen, is a soothing choice.
16. Bright Cabinets
If you’re feeling like gray is too overwhelming, take a note from this happy Swedish kitchen and paint your cabinets a bright color to complement your dusky walls.
17. Brick Flooring And Backsplashes
These bricks feature hues of black, cream, and gray. Dawn Hearn Interior Design complements the gray in the bricks by choosing a similar cabinet and wall color.

Famous painter Claude Monet knew his colors. His kitchen is a prime example of how different shades of blue add interest. With beautiful vintage kitchens, you’ll notice they aren’t afraid to take chances.

Red is a fun color for eclectic kitchens. Amazing Spaces’ choice of bright lipstick red for these kitchen cabinets is an invitation to hang out and create together as a family.
