5 very sleek, gorgeous and inspiring white kitchens

After almost a year of talking about plans, getting structural surveys done, seeking authorisations from the council, this is it! We are finally starting the renovations in our home…
I’m really really excited by our future, new kitchen. When we moved in 4 years ago, I quickly painted the old kitchen with blackboard paint to give it a new lease of life but I’m over the moon the time has finally come to have the white, sleek kitchen of my dreams.
Here are five, gorgeous white kitchens that inspired my Masterplan kitchen…

Our old Kitchen featured here in Homestyle NZ magazine is up for a major revamp. The L shape is going to be replaced by the layout above: a long island facing a wall of units with heaps of storage, both visually leading to the garden.
The 80’s window is going to be replaced by a large, architectural glass window floor to ceiling.

Our tap is going to be replaced by one that has a boiling option (watch out for our kettle and old tap on Ebay :-)

When it comes to kitchen, my pet hate are electricals so toaster & blender are going to be plugged in but hidden away in a cupboard/pantry and our stainless-steel worktop is going to be replaced by a gorgeous, smooth and tactile white Corian with a large moulded sink.

Initially, I really wanted a polished concrete floor or large concrete tiles like in the Vipp flagship store but to avoid cracks, we needed to have at least 10 cm worth of depth in the grounds.
So we looked at other alternatives (rubber, wooden floors, tiles) and in the end, we found a very nice resin floor that looks sleek and contemporary.
To give an impression of space, we will run the resin floor throughout the ground floor and the B&W tiles from the hallway that many of you love (but me) and the oak wooden floor in the lounge.
I still have a tons of stuff to get rid off (so expect more things popping up on Instagram and Ebay). Which kitchen do you prefer??

    Hi Karine,

    Thanks for constantly inspiring me with your blog !
    Can’t wait to see the new kitchen , we had corian in our old house that we renovated and left for an old house :(.
    So I am insanely jealous of you !
    Corian is so fantastic we have three young children and it is so robust. Actually our bench had scratches which can be buffed right out and it got a small crack which was just completely mended so compared to a chipped stone it is amazing plus beautiful.
    Thanks for making my days feel inspired and happy with your wonderful images.

  2. Hi Larissa

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I’ve dream about a Corian worktop for years! I never had the budget when I renovated my flat alone and for the house in France, we went for good old Ikea but I really love how tactile and WHITE! Corian is

    I’m so excited… It will be my first grownup kitchen :-)
    Have a fab weekend and thanks again for your lovely comments that really touched me

  4. I love them all , your blog has inspired me to get more white and a touch of grey black in my living room. Your kitchen sounds like it’s going to be amazing, good luck with it.

    Hi. Your blog is really inspirational – I really love this look – you’ve got great style. When it comes to our home I never seem to get a look just a mishmash of things I like & things I don’t! Do you ever give advise? We are buying a new home and can start from scratch – exciting but scared I will do the same! Jo.

  6. If I would have a choice, i would be torn between white Scandinavian style light home/kitchen versus dark and moody Victorian one.
    Your plan sounds wonderful and I’m sure your new kitchen will look and feel great!
    Enjoy the process!

    If I have to choose.. My favourite kitchen is the second one. I would also love a steaming cup of tea from the tap!
    We are also planning to renovate our kitchen in London. A resin floor sounds interesting. Can I ask the name of the company you are planning to use?
    Thanks
