Brooklyn Beckham, part of the famous Beckham family, is no stranger to impeccable style, so, unsurprisingly, the budding chef has chosen a classic color scheme for the kitchen in his Los Angeles home. Known for its enduring style, versatility, and timeless appeal, white kitchen ideas are an undisputed favorite.

As anyone who has been through the process of searching for kitchen cabinet colors will attest, choosing the right color for one of the most impactful features in a kitchen can be a minefield with endless choices and subtle nuances to understand and overcome. Though you may be accused of playing it safe, the white kitchen is the most popular kitchen cabinet color bar none – and for good reason.

With matte or gloss finishes on offer, decorating with white can look wonderfully different. Remember, no two whites are the same. Its shades vary tremendously from the crispest of pure whites to those with subtle warm or cool undertones. White is also the perfect partner for other kitchen color ideas and materials, whether used as major elements or minimal accents.

If you desire to create a 'wow' kitchen but want to maintain a timeless style in your home, white kitchen cabinets, similar to Brooklyn Beckham's, are a modern and liveable option.

White kitchens are an increasingly popular choice, despite many reaching for warmer colors, such as brown, beige, and sage. White will reflect the light, and because of this quality, it’s frequently selected for small kitchens to make them feel more spacious. But if you want to maximize the enduring quality of your white kitchen, you'll want to consider a few other key design elements. 

‘As expected, a white color scheme will be very beneficial for smaller kitchen spaces, particularly combined with light-colored or even wood kitchen countertops,’ says Tom Howley, design director at Tom Howley bespoke kitchens. 

To stop white from becoming clinical and cold, using plenty of texture, will allow the warmth to shine through. Using a white or natural palette is all about adding depth and contrast in different layers and textures, says Jane Landino, creative head of studio at Taylor Howes. 'Just because your kitchen cabinetry is white doesn’t mean your whole kitchen needs to be minimal or plain: think about adding texture and pattern elsewhere – timber kitchen flooring. stainless steel appliances and accessories or wood kitchen countertops, as an example.

‘White alone can look a touch stark. Pairing white cabinetry with wood countertops will bring warmth to a predominantly white scheme, alongside texture and depth,’ explains Pluck’s co-founder Leila Touwen. A plain white backdrop will bring interesting materials, like timber and steel, into sharp relief.
