2) A Touch Of Wood And Marble
If it works for you, you can bring in a touch of wood to tone down the overwhelming effect and brightness occasioned by the all-white background. If you find the white on the white color palette to be too stark for your senses, using natural wood on some surfaces in your kitchen will simmer things down for you. This is also great for art or aesthetic reasons; combining white with wood or a touch of grey can bring it the beauty of what you’re trying to achieve in a new kitchen. Non-White countertops and natural wood furniture and flooring can also be used to add visual interest to the kitchen, by bringing out an element of rustic charm to your kitchen. Plank floors can also be used to add rustic touches of color to the kitchen.
3) Lightning Effect
Here’s one cool way to add splendor and warmth to your white kitchen.

You can use simple drop lights on the ceiling, elegant wall lights or countertop lights at an angle that can also help in terms of focus when you’re working in that area.

It won’t help when you have rusty sinks and broken stuff in your elegant white kitchen. Also, be sure to get matching towels and blinds for your kitchen. Lastly, do accessorize your white kitchen; it would help if you brought in some greenery (flowers) or a touch of blue (wall fixtures) here and there.
5) Texture and Finishing

But then again, it’s about you and what you want to achieve in your kitchen.
