When I was dreaming of our kitchen remodel, I scoured Pinterest for every white kitchen design.  

I became daunted with a lot of the white kitchen ideas.

They had a sterile look and felt cold.

The good news is that a new kitchen is a blank canvas, and I wanted my own kitchen to have that classic look, and to feel warm and inviting.  

I have white kitchen cabinets and I love them.

An easy way to add warmth and have white cabinetry is to use use warm whites for the wall color and white cabinets.  

A great place to start is with a great focal point.  

I have two focal points in my kitchen.  

One is my large kitchen window that is over my kitchen sink and the other is a 48″ range with a beautiful arched vent hood.  

I used stainless steel appliances to break up the white surfaces.  

Here are some more great ideas to add warmth and character when starting with a white background and white cabinets.

9 Tips and Ideas That Will Warm Up a White Kitchen

Say goodbye to a cold, sterile kitchen and hello to a cozy, inviting space with these tips!

From brick floors to vintage accents, we’ve got you covered for adding warmth and charm.

1. Add Great Flooring

One of the easiest ways to add warmth and personality to a white kitchen is through great flooring.

Adding vintage brick, large stone tiles or hardwood floors with warm tones, is a great way to add charm and character.

To add even more interest, consider laying the flooring in a classic herringbone pattern.

2. Use Vintage Inspired Hardware

Brass hardware is a classic with it’s timeless design.  

Chose a simple or ornate hardware pattern.  

Knobs on cabinet doors and pulls on drawers do not have to match-which just adds even more character.  

This is an easy and quick DIY update that can be accomplished in an hour.

3. Use Patterned Interest

I have white subway tile, which I love.  

But, with white walls, white countertops and white cabinets it could get a bit bland.

Laying tiles in a beautiful pattern is a great way to add interest and charm to a white kitchen.

Consider installing tiles in a herringbone pattern on your backsplash or flooring to make a statement.

If you are new here, welcome.

I am so glad that you are here.

4. Add a Copper Pot Rack

Copper is both beautiful and stylish.  

Why not add a pot storage rack with copper?  

The best thing is that it’s a simple DIY project that can be finished in no time.  

Hanging vintage copper pots or other vintage items from the pot rack, elevates the character even more.  

I absolutely love mine.  

It is a beautiful focal point above my range.

5.  Add Texture with Natural Stone

Natural stone stands up well to wear and tear and is stunning at the same time.  

Travertine and marble countertops may leave some distress from day to day wear, but it just adds to the character of your kitchen and tells the story of your family.  

They add a timeless classic touch with natural texture. 

Notice the vintage marble carving in the window sill.

It’s another great way to use the character of natural stone.

6. Add in Warmth with Wood Accents and Natural Elements

Adding warm wood tones into your kitchen adds instant warmth.  

Consider adding a wood butcher block top on your kitchen island.

Or using a beautiful vintage cutting board with a natural wood finish as decor.

Wood counter stools or a wooden bowl filled with fresh fruit adds even more warm and a pop of color.

7. Install Vintage Lighting

This just may be my favorite tip of all.  

I love vintage lighting!  

It is such an affordable way to switch out “run of the mill” modern lighting and so much fun finding the perfect one for your space.

Lighting plays a crucial role in setting the mood of your kitchen.

Consider adding vintage lighting like a chandelier or pendant lights that not only provide functional lighting but also add style and interest.

8. Bring in Vintage Decor

Vintage decor pieces like antique silver urns, artwork, or a vintage crock to hold your utensils in, adds character and charm to a white kitchen.

Check out local flea markets or thrift stores for unique finds that will give your kitchen a distinctive and personal touch.

9. Add Greenery.

Nothing adds life into your space like greenery.  

Whether real or faux.  

I added some topiaries in some vintage silver urns and tied sweet boxwood wreaths to the backs of my dining chairs and bar stools to add that bit of extra flair to my kitchen.  

It is one of my favorite details!

A white kitchen doesn’t have to feel cold and uninviting.
