A lot of homeowners shy away from all-white spaces as these seem to demand a lot of upkeep. However, you have to admit, the same milky non-hue has an undeniable power to bring a sense of sophistication to a room. If you've been thinking about experimenting with minimalist-inspired decor, here are some tips that can help you achieve your dream aesthetic: 

While this kitchen may be small and simple, it still packs a punch because of the unique subway tiles. Something as simple as replacing the cabinet handles can also update a tired space.

RL Tip: Consider having black knobs or brass drawer pulls for extra elegance. You can source for these pieces when you visit any Wilcon Depot branch.

If floor-to-ceiling tiles aren't your cup of tea, consider using it as a counter backsplash for a sleek and streamlined feel. Add a few indoor plants for a surprising pop of color. 

For an easier kitchen clean-up, consider adding an accent with dark gray backsplash tiles. Add more character to your cooking corner with neon tools and dinnerware.

RL Tip: For colorful kitchen must-haves, drop by Daiso Japan and ROY & BIV, Glorietta 4, Makati City.

Even a standard-issue kitchen can be transformed into something elegant by simply painting the wooden cabinet doors and countertops white. The black cabinet pulls and granite print also add an extra oomph to the space. 

Keep your cooking corner from looking bland and boring with a wooden ceiling treatment and wooden floor tiles. Mix and match different finishes to give your space a one-of-a-kind touch.
