Timeless White Kitchen Cabinets

The beautiful inset cabinets by Kountry Kraft are the foundation for this timeless white kitchen in New England. The inset construction method was widely used throughout the Victorian Era and requires skilled-craftsmanship from the cabinet maker. Pair this timeless style with classic white Benjamin Moore paint and you get this stunning result that sets the tone for the rest of the design.

Continuing the White Theme

These New England homeowners wanted their kitchen to feel clean and light, as if they were taking a breath of fresh air every time they entered the space. Cue white countertops and a white backsplash. The main countertops are white marble with a hint of soft veining. Meanwhile, the backsplash consists of two different white tiles—simple subway tile as the main choice with arabesque detailing over the range and bar.

Touches of Warmth

This timeless white kitchen in New England incorporates two touches of color and warmth. The first touch is all of the brass elements: the lantern-esque lighting above the island, the sink faucets, and the cabinet hardware from Schaub. The second touch is the walnut accent countertops used for the bar and end of the island. Both of these details add just the right amount of warmth and character to the otherwise white color palette. Plus, the richness of the materials adds to the sense of sophistication and luxury given by the finely-crafted cabinets.

Details Matter

Working with an almost all-white color palette isn’t as easy as you might think. Without the contrasts of color, visual interest needs to be created in the design through other methods.

Beyond the two-tiled backsplash and touches of warmth, there are a number of other details that play a crucial part in creating this timeless white kitchen. Take note of the ornate hood, molding around the ceiling, the waterfall edge of the marble countertops, and the decorative cabinets above the bar. All of these details give the kitchen a sense of character and make it truly special.
