Is White Kitchen Design Becoming Outdated?

When it comes to kitchen design, the white kitchen has made quite the impression. With 40 years in the design-build industry, Foster Remodeling has seen dozens of home design fads come and go, but the white kitchen never seems to falter. The so-called ‘trend’ has deep roots that can be traced back to Victorian times when design choices were based on functionality, and most available materials were white, such as porcelain tiles and whitewashed walls. With a rich history dating back over 150 years, is the white kitchen design here to stay? At its core, we think yes!

The Enduring Allure Of A White Kitchen.

A kitchen remodel is one of the most costly projects an Arlington homeowner can tackle, so it’s smart to make design choices that withstand the test of time. No one wants to see their ROI plummet because their design selections become quickly outdated. 

White Kitchens Provide A Blank Canvas.

White kitchens have a timeless appeal because they’re clean, minimalistic, and provide a neutral backdrop that adapts to bolder contrasting design features like statement lighting, striking backsplashes, and earthy countertops.

White Kitchens Are More Functional. 

The clean, fresh look of white makes small spaces look larger, so you get more bang for your buck during a kitchen remodel. White also reflects light, so it provides higher visibility for prep surfaces.
