Why Do All The Kitchens Look the Same?

4 years ago

Seriously, it feels like every kitchen is some version of white/white, blue/white, grey/white or white or grey. Or they'll do a white perimeter with a wood or painted island (and usually the island is blue or gray). Then almost every kitchen has either some form of white/gray/black for counters and white/gray/black for backsplash. And of course most nowadays are shaker cabinets, even if the house style might be able to (or should) have another door style.

Yes every once in a while someone comes up with something more interesting that uses natural woods or color, but on these forums that seems to be the exception and not the rule.

It seems that each time I open a reveal, I'm looking and saying seen that already. Wouldn't it be nice to at least see color?
