A timeless pair, black and white kitchens have graced sophisticated homes forever. This contrasting color scheme makes a bold visual statement with endless possibilities. Black adds grounding focal points to a crisp white space—the results are undeniably gorgeous. From sleek and chic to evolved elegance, let’s explore a collection of Waypoint success stories to spark inspiration for your own cooking space.

Designer: Barrons Enterprises Inc.
This incredibly elegant space was formerly a series of small, dated rooms. In search of an open space concept kitchen, walls came down and cabinets were installed. Waypoint cabinets were the perfect fit for the homeowners’ style and budget. The designer used a refined palette with striking accents to create a highly functional design. The homeowners got exactly what they had in mind.
This kitchen isn’t afraid to mix it up. Crisp white cabinetry (540 Painted Linen) provides a light contrast to the dramatic island. Paired with dramatic black, warm brass accents really shine. Functional floating shelves add clean lines to the layered look. A dreamy marble backsplash provides seamless flow from one zone to the next. A trio of modern brass pendants tops the space with stylish warmth.

This design team transformed a dated space into a currently cool kitchen. For a polished look that scream contemporary, they selected Waypoint’s Duraform Breeze cabinets. Adding a little intrigue and storage to the equation, they used Brushed Aluminum Frames with frosted glass inserts above the refrigerator.
Packed with clean lines (DT22 Duraform Breeze) and sleek details, this contemporary look is the epitome of cool. Shiny stainless appliances and hardware are a stand out while a pair of retro pendants add luminary luxury.

After purchasing an older home filled with dated, builder grade kitchen cabinets, this family craved a timeless kitchen. To revitalize the space, Waypoint provided light, bright cabinets—at a price point they couldn’t refuse.
A classic palette never goes out of style and this kitchen is proof. A refined door cut (410 Painted Linen cabinets & 410 Cherry Slate island) paired with a range of textures defines this look. Molding buildups, where the wall meets the ceiling, adds interesting depth and style. The rich black island anchors the space and provides an entre for the eye-catching rangehood. A textured backsplash is the perfect backdrop for the crisp clean lines of the cabinets.
Just like in fashion, black and white accents elevate a look. Think jewelry. Add black or white knobs and metal corbels to sharpen a design.
