There's nothing quite like a fresh, clean, white kitchen. But if a white kitchen is modern in style, it doesn't mean that it also has to be stark, cold, and sterile in feel. From pristine cabinetry to paint colors to accessories, there are so many ways to work white in your cooking space. Check out these 10 ideas that can bump up your modern, white kitchen a notch.

These chevron hardwoods are gorgeous without being flashy. They're the perfect match to a minimalist white kitchen. Plus, chevron-patterned flooring won't close in a space because it draws the eye both vertically and horizontally to create balance.

Mixing stark cabinetry with natural, light-hardwood accents softens the feel of a modern kitchen. Lightening your hardwood floors can also be a DIY project.
