From the article:
Crisp clean white kitchens with gleaming marble counters and backsplashes are everywhere you look these days. It’s easy to see why: White makes a space look bigger and airier, and enhances other design elements. Wood floors look richer against white, pendant lights stand out as sculptural elements, and stainless steel appliances sparkle. Adding marble to the mix introduces a luxurious touch.
That said, there are drawbacks to this kind of simple elegance. A white kitchen demands upkeep; all that white isn’t going to stay clean without maintenance. And marble is definitely not for everyone. It’s soft and porous, so it scratches and stains easily, and acidic foods can cause surface etching. Marble aficionados learn to love the patina (or live with the patina) that time brings. If you can’t abide the inevitable signs of wear and tear, consider alternative materials, such as quartz.
But if you’re ready to take on the challenge, or just want to do a little daydreaming, check out the collection assembled here. You won’t be disappointed.
Gleaming white Carrara marble counters take center stage here. But this kitchen is as functional as it is glamorous. There are seven seats at the peninsula and the island, so the cook never has to feel left out of the party. Other nice touches: the discreet wine fridge, the built-in paper towel holder next to the sink, the old-fashioned station clock, and bell-jar pendant lights. The maple cabinets are by Wood-Mode and are painted Nordic White.
White works beautifully with gray, as evidenced by the silvery backsplash in this Minnesota kitchen (made from Encore 3- by 6-inch silver ceramic tiles). The custom cabinetry — including the island, with its artfully turned legs — is painted in Benjamin Moore’s Simply White. Honed Calacatta marble covers the counters and island top, while the warm wood floors (by Stang-Lund) are walnut with a hard-wax-oil finish.
This warm and welcoming kitchen, with its gleaming wood floors (long-plank fir finished with Minwax’s Puritan Pine), features an island covered in Calacatta gold marble. (Note the storage cabinets tucked behind the bar stools.) Other nice touches: the two large Hudson Valley Haverhill brushed-nickel pendants, classic Philippe Starck Emeco brushed-aluminum bar stools and contrasting gray countertops of Pietra del Cardoso.
