Is a white kitchen really safe?

White has been a regular colour of choice in kitchens for decades now. It’s safe, it blends and it is always in season. But what will you find when you pull off some of the layers? One of the disadvantages might be a reason for you to look at other options.

It doesn’t approve with age like wine. When you have a painted kitchen, it will show smudges easer and scratches will give more character. Although modern melamine resist better, it will show wear after a few years down the line. Other finished will also show wear later on, but with white it will be more visible.

How often do you want to clean your kitchen? White kitchens are high maintenance as it shows marks quicker than a coloured or patterned kitchen. Also, should one cook or entertain allot in the kitchen. The cleaning will not only be the tops but also the doors. They are often seen as plain, cold, unwelcoming, simple and even unexciting. If that is the look you are after then it will be fine.

All is not bad. You don’t have to go mad looking for the same white when adding something to your kitchen. White has a way of blending all different whites.

White makes the space look and feel lighter and bigger. If your kitchen is a bit on the small side, bringing a white kitchen in will make the space feel bigger.

If you want to add some cabinets to your kitchen, you will more than likely find the same finish in a few years time. Because white is always in demand, it doesn’t really discontinue. While an all white kitchen is a serious commitment. It still looks breathtaking.

Personalize your kitchen

Too often, kitchens don’t make a statement. They are too monotonous and look store bought. When having guests over, do you run into the kitchen just to run out again? Not wanting your guests to come into the kitchen.

Because of the world we are living in these days, you don’t have to stick to any style. You can mix and match just as you want. Just make sure that what you mix blends in somehow. If you have a wooden floor, you can add an extra wooden top or even an aluminium top to match your aluminium kick plates.

Have a naked wall that you just haven’t figured out what to do with? Add some floating shelves to put plants or photos or words on. Single emotional words like love or family has been around for some time now and it never fails.

You and your partner can’t figure out which chair to go with? No stress. You can have your different chairs around your kitchen nook or island and it will work. Everyone will have their favourite chair.

Bring life into your kitchen with a coloured wall

The Rolling Stones said in 1966: I see a red door and I want it painted black. Times have changed from coloured doors in a kitchen to a morgue/cave type of cold feeling. But it doesn’t have to be like that.
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
By changing one wall with a different colour you can brighten the feel of your kitchen. Put a little bit of life on one wall and you will already have more of a personality in the morning. The colour for doors and tops currently used in a kitchen is white, grey, cream, brown and black. So the type of colours you would want to use on a specific wall should be red, yellow, blue, green, orange and purple but that is not where it ends. You live in the house, so it is all up to you. The sky is the limit and if in two years you don’t like the colour anymore, you can just get different colour of paint and repaint. It is not like redoing the whole kitchen. By just changing the wall, you would already have a new look to your kitchen without changing your kitchen. So which wall to put the statement colour on?
{Weizter} {Kitchens}
It really depends on the layout of your house. From which side you see the kitchen first and where you would want to have the statement of your kitchen. This all depends on your creativity and where you would like to have your main focus. And it doesn’t have to be the same wall every time. Every time you repaint, you could change the statement wall. But try to keep it to two colours to the wall and not every wall a different colour. Also don’t do two different bright colours. Make a wall a neutral light/soft colour and the other bright. If you go two bright colours they might clash and make your kitchen look too busy. You could also do two walls one bright colour.

Let your colours of creativity flow and the days of no colours anymore I want them to turn black is finished.

Trends versus my style

So, it’s time to change your kitchen. What type of doors do I use? What colour doors do I use? What type of tops do I use? Do I put cupboards in to the ceiling or not? What style do I go for? So many questions to think about and so many ideas that social media can give at just a click of a button. But social media doesn’t live in your house; nor do they have the size of your kitchen. And will it flow in with the rest of your home? I don’t think so.

Home trends have changed over the years. Where a style would have been in season for 5 to 8 years and maybe even longer, it has cut down its life span to 2 maybe 3 years. The only way to stay on top of fashion would be to change your kitchen every 3 years. But who would have the time to be without a kitchen every 3 years for awhile - who can afford this high expense? The second option is to wait until it’s in fashion again which might be 6 years down the line, and then change it afterwards.

{Weizter} {Kitchens}The only logical explanation would be to go with your gut feeling and design and a style that suits you. A home is in fact an external part of your core. Take the dive and show your guests the real you and not a shop front of someone else.
