White kitchens are perfect for small spaces. They have long been a worthy option in more compact homes and for good reason too! We take a look at the concepts that make an all-white kitchen ideal for petite abodes.

1. Light Reflecting Qualities

White is the brightest pigment on the colour spectrum. By nature, it shines and reflects light around a room, creating the sense of expansion and spaciousness. This is magnified in a kitchen setting when combined with polished white work surfaces or gloss cabinets, giving the illusion of more room.

2. Seamless Space

Connecting up from white cabinetry, through seamlessly connected worktops and splashbacks, up the walls right up to the ceiling, you create an open space without disconnect. A feeling of expansiveness will be achieved and result in the room appearing and feeling larger than it really is.

If your kitchen is particularly pokey, you may want to consider reconfiguring your homes’ layout or even a kitchen extension. But it’s amazing how an all-white kitchen transformation can work wonders on creating the illusion of additional space, even without altering the floor plan.

White stone surfaces create a connection with nature and the great outdoors. They have an earthiness that draws in the elements and creates a feeling of spaciousness. Opt for Caesarstone surfaces to achieve the aesthetic of a marble worktop, combined with the enhanced quality and durability synonymous with Caesarstone.

4. Creating Warmth

Depending on the exact shade of white and when combining with soft neutrals, it’s possible to embrace a warmth which will enhance the feeling of cosiness, without the room feeling small and confined. To create a true kitchen sanctuary, you need look no further than a white kitchen.

5. Sense of Cleanliness

White kitchens are synonymous with cleanliness and good hygiene. There is a freshness that comes with a white foundation and the fact that spills aren’t so easily disguised means they will be cleaned much more quickly, preventing a build up of dirt. This means germs won’t be allowed to harbour and your kitchen will be better maintained.

Caesarstone surfaces are particularly low maintenance, being stain, scratch and heat resistant, whilst benefiting from non-porous qualities which make them resistant to liquids and therefore prevents the build-up of bacteria.
