15 Accessories That Pair Perfectly With an All-White Kitchen

One of our all-time favorite trends is, without a doubt, the all-white kitchen. The design’s monochrome element captures an overall clean aesthetic, which is the goal when it comes to one of the most used and abused rooms in your home. While we’re all for keeping it simple—as to not takeaway the appeal of the whitewashed look—a few complementary accessories are necessary to save the space from becoming overly sterile.

Fortunately, it’s extremely easy to elevate an all-white room with just a few key items. From wood and marble to a pop of color or pattern, just one or two of the following essentials will enhance the style of an all-white kitchen without overpowering the look and feel of this approach. Below, find our favorite accessories to add appeal to an all-white kitchen.
