Put White Tiles in the Kitchen

This post was supposed to be about open shelves in the kitchen, oh how I love them! But while doing a bit of image research I came across a common denominator I felt in love. White tile and back splashes. I haven't had tile in the kitchen for a long while now and I think I miss it, it adds an understated kitchen elegance and makes the kitchen a more welcoming and useful place. And the combination between tiles and open shelving makes it even better, if at all possible! What is the one thing you dream of in a kitchen?

  2. I LOVE the white tiling with the open shelves as well! What I really love is open shelving with cookbooks in the kitchen. For some reason I'm obsessed with that, it really appeals to me. Like a little cookbook library in the kitchen! I love #4, that is my dream kitchen.

  5. All of these kitchens are to die for! I love white subway tile... Living in SF, I've had to settle for a sad mini little 1930s kitchen...so, one day!!

  19. My dream kitchen looks a lot like these photos; a lot of space and white, white, white. I love especially the white wooden floor, and the open shelves.

  24. There is nothing I love more for a kitchen than the clean, crisp look, which is only perfectly achieved by white subway tiles. I'm not sure I could pull off open shelves. Definitely not organized enough!

  30. Very nice, Helena! I really like the kitchen shown in image no.05 especially... as for myself, I crave a kitchen that is cozy and warm, yet slightly modern, with a grand, elaborate mirror in gold :)

  31. I also like white tiles in the kitchen and it really hard to maintain because It gets messy very quickly.

  32. White tiles in kitchen are classic, and they never lose their appeal. The color is just perfect to create a good-natured atmosphere in such a busy place like the kitchen. Plus, aesthetic-wise, a white-tiled kitchen looks more sanitized.
