White kitchens are on trend and we’re expecting the trend to continue well into 2016. Design pros call the white kitchen timeless and real estate agents across the country can attest to its ability to draw buyers in and get listings sold. The neutral palette of a white kitchen lends itself to a wealth of design ideas. It can read country, modern, contemporary or transitional. It’s a blank slate where attention to detail matters. To show that white kitchens are far from vanilla and sell listings, we’ve listed The Top 4 Reasons Why Your Listings Should Include a White Kitchen.
White is timeless. Having been around since the 1920’s, and enduring through the decades, the all-white kitchen is a design staple. To call this a trend on it’s way out is like saying, “No one wears Chanel anymore.” A white kitchen is the little black dress of interior design. The key is to keep it updated. Ground a white kitchen with a sparkly quartz counter top or go classic with Carrara marble. The white kitchen is the star but the counters will make it shine.
It’s versatile. Whether your client’s style is rustic and natural, or sleek and modern, a white kitchen complements all designs. Because details pop on a white background, use reclaimed wood beams to play up a rustic vibe or antique jugs to decorate.
All-white is clean. It’s well known within the real estate community that a home must be clutter-free and clean if it’s going to sell quickly. White is crisp and clean.
A white kitchen sells. The white kitchen is universally accepted as the standard for classic design, but ultimately it’s a blank slate for your clients to make their own. The beauty of all-white, whether a personal preference or not is that it’s hands-down the most marketable no matter a client’s taste.
