White kitchens to make you green with envy!

The painting of my house is going a little slower than I would have liked with all the wet weather we've been having so here's some kitchens to ogle over!
Travertine tile splashback mixed with a white ikea kitchen, I love this subtle driftwood look tile with the clean white simplicity of the kitchen cabinets! image style at home

A Modern version of As Good as it Gets style Kitchen from Bunnings

Here's the traditional style Hamptons look Kitchen with subway tile splashback, and modern stainless appliances and rangehood image Cote de Texas

I love this all white kitchen with dark timber floors and black granite benchtop just stunning! A good mix of contemporary and victorian style. (love the old style pendant lamps) image

This is the kitchen that inspired my post while flipping through another favourite magazine of mine Inside Out. This design is contemporary in white but warmth has been added by the Smoked and Lime Oak doors and floor. Design by Templeton image by Sharyn Cairns. Checkout the Bonus Kitchen and Bathroom Book from the March April edition of I.O.
So how to decide on the kitchen you want? 

A quick tip - Break the kitchen into elements

  • Appliances (reuse or new?)
  • Benchtop
  • Splashback
  • Cupboards & Drawers
  • Display/Shelves
  • Layout
  • Budget
  • Your Style Contemporary, Country, Modern, Vintage, Retro the list is endless!
Then look at the finishes you like, the must haves, the nice to haves and forget about what you wouldn't use! Collect images of all of the styles and finishes to the elements that you envisage in your final design.

You're then armed ready to take in as many kitchen showrooms as you desire with your homework already done. 

A kitchen designer can help with innovations and layout, so your new kitchen looks great and is highly functional for your needs.

LCD can help with updates or renovations to your existing kitchen or help you plan the kitchen of your dreams or a budget conscience kitchen.

The Brisbane Homeshow is on this weekend and might be a good place to start if you're planning a new kitchen.

Have a great rest of the week!
