Design inspiration is everywhere, but finding and matching the right white tones for your project can be difficult. To help you navigate the sometimes overwhelming world of whites, we’ve created eight colour schemes that use the purest of whites right through to warmer tones. Finding your perfect scheme has never been easier!

White Scheme 1 – Zen palette

Inspired by the simple look and feel of Zen Style, this fresh look is defined by an architectural white in both the benchtop and cabinetry. Depth and texture is added by the introduction of a lighter toned woodgrain.

Get the look with Essastone Crystallite, Laminex Impressions in Elegant Oak and Laminex Polar White.

 

White Scheme 2 – Scandinavian palette

Love the simple designs of the Scandinavian Style? Start with a simple white benchtop in Essastone Caolino, combined with a light milky timber like Laminex Milkwood. Then complete the look by adding a pop of colour to a feature area.

For this scheme, combine Essastone Caolino, Laminex Milkwood and Laminex Eggshell.

 

White Scheme 3 – Classic palette

The Classic look is characterised by a beautiful neutral palette. If you choose this style, the subtle and timeless small aggregate in this Essastone benchtop and splashback will allow you to layer texture and colour in complementary décor and soft furnishings.

White Scheme 4 – Modern & Co palette

Featuring a Essastone Saint Moritz benchtop and splashback, this scheme injects warmth and softness into your room. The on trend Laminex AbsoluteMatte in White and the timber-coloured AbsoluteGrain in Aged Ash support the small, subtle aggregates in the Essastone to give a seamless look that can be featured throughout your project.

Combine Essastone Saint Moritz, Laminex AbsoluteMatte in White and Laminex AbsoluteGrain in Aged Ash for this look.

 

White Scheme 5 – Coastal palette

To create a more rustic and Coastal inspired white look, we’ve used a highly textured timber in feature cabinetry, that gives a sense of history to the space, and supported this with light grey accent cabinetry. To enhance the look we’ve used Essastone Chalkstone with a larger aggregate for the benchtops and splashback.

Essastone Chalkstone, Laminex Impressions in Rural Oak and Laminex Ghostgum make a beautiful coastal palette.

 

White Scheme 6 – Industrial palette

Industrial palettes don’t need to be dark and moody. This warm white benchtop and splashback in Essastone Pure Cloud and the light grey cabinets in Laminex FormWrap in Sarsen Grey create a slightly more contemporary industrial palette. Depth is added by the introduction of the mid-tone timber of Laminex AbsoluteGrain in Aged Walnut.

White Scheme 7 – Glamour palette

Create a more glamourous white look by selecting deep rich timber tones matched with a soft warm grey. This will help bring a sense of luxury to your space. To add some warmth introduce Essastone Crystallite for benchtop and splashback in line with Laminex Impressions in Espresso Ligna for the cabinetry.
