White Kitchen Tour

This kitchen has it all! It’s a little bit glamorous, a little bit rustic and all the way gorgeous. Sleek and modern appliances combined with classic beams and white marble countertops make for a timeless kitchen combination that can’t help but be the family’s gathering place. We think it would even make us feel like cooking! Take a look around to get inspired for adding touches to your own kitchen — or whipping up a five-course dinner.

White Subway Tile

Susan Geier and Michael Ranson Design
It’s no surprise that we can’t get enough light, bright, beautiful white. In a kitchen or a bath, there’s simply no color that feels as clean and refreshing. We all know when using a neutral palette, it’s crucial to mix up the shades and textures to make the room feel rich and deep, not sterile.
My Home Ideas
That’s why one of our favorite looks for the kitchen or bath is the streamlined, tailored, yet slightly out-of-the-ordinary look of white subway tiles. They add pattern and interest without being so bold as to take away from the other elements in the room. For us, subway tile is the same idea as fresh, crisp linens in a bedroom or bath. 
Taste Interior
While some varieties of subway tile can, of course, be pricey, one of our favorite things about this staple is that it is readily available in budget-friendly styles as well. We think adding a gray grout, like in this kitchen, gives even a generic tile a custom look — and coordinates beautifully with gray cabinets or grey veining in classic marble.

It really can’t be said enough: Lighting makes a space. The right lighting on this tile makes it sparkle and shine.

The many elements in this room are a feast for the eyes. (No pun intended!) A simple, clean backsplash ties it all together without feeling overwhelming.

We know we’re talking about tile here, but isn’t that range just to die for? Wow! And the open shelving here makes the space seem big and open.
Things That Inspire
Subway tile is perfect for a bathroom, and the gray grout not only customizes the look but is also much easier to keep clean than white! The whole point of a shower like this is to relax — not be scrubbing grout stains with a toothbrush!

In a bath like this, subway tile is a great way to make an area fade into the background a bit while other elements like the marble bath and mosaic tiles shine in the forefront.

We love it on the walls, ceilings and floors.

What a dreamy bath! That classic black and white tile combined with rich white marble and crisp subway tile is hands-down one of our favorite combinations for a timeless bath. Here’s wishing you a weekend full of bubble baths (and bubbly!) in a tub just this fabulous!

Hanging Around the Kitchen

Arden Interior Design
When it comes to kitchens, beautiful is great, but functional is necessary.
Luxe + Lillie
We all have our own favorite kitchen essentials that make our culinary conquests more pleasant — and tastier.

A pot filler over the stove, a warming drawer for when dinner is ready but your family isn’t, the built-in espresso machine solely responsible for getting you to work on time — and awake.

But, let’s face it: When it comes to cooking, there are few things more essential than a great set of pots and pans.

And if you’re going to pony up for the best double boiler and frying pan, why not get a little decorating bang for your buck as well.
Phoebe Howard Design
After all, it seems a waste to have all that bright, shining copper and stainless and leave it in the drawer.

Kim Kirby Design
It’s like keeping your best jewelry in the lock box.
Life of Polarn Per
That’s why we absolutely love hanging pot racks.
Nathan Egan Design
They are, to us, one of the best ways to combine form and function, displaying something that can be beautiful in its own right and ensuring that your wok is never more than an arm’s length away in a cooking crisis.
