Dreaming of a White Kitchen?

Snowy cabinets and walls speak to a certain elegance, while marble counters whisper of luxury

Crisp, clean white kitchens with gleaming marble counters and backsplashes are everywhere you look these days. It’s easy to see why: White makes a space look bigger and airier, and enhances other design elements. Wood floors look richer against white, pendant lights stand out as sculptural elements, and stainless steel appliances sparkle. Adding marble to the mix introduces a luxurious touch.

That said, there are drawbacks to this kind of simple elegance. A white kitchen demands upkeep; all that white isn’t going to stay clean without maintenance. And marble is definitely not for everyone. It’s soft and porous, so it scratches and stains easily, and acidic foods can cause surface etching. Marble aficionados learn to love the patina (or live with the patina) that time brings. If you can’t abide the inevitable signs of wear and tear, consider alternative materials, such as quartz.

But if you’re ready to take on the challenge, or just want to do a little daydreaming, check out the collection assembled here. You won’t be disappointed.
