US Gymnastics Championships: Record-breaking winner Simone Biles captured her eighth consecutive national overall victory  

When it comes to timeless trends, white kitchens are perhaps one of the most widely used interior styles. Despite its ubiquity, it remains highly customizable thanks to the thousands of variations of this neutral, along with materials.

The award-winning athlete shared a photo of her crisp, clean kitchen on her Instagram page, and the white-painted cabinets blend seamlessly into the greige walls and oatmeal-colored, tiled floors.

We love how Biles added subtle hints of texture to her space with her intricate chandeliers, marbled tiles, and ceramic vases on the table.  

The mix of materials helps create visual interest; Howley has additional ideas to achieve this in our kitchen. 

'If you have crisp white or cream kitchen cabinetry, you could opt for a contrasting walnut finish for the racks and shelving within,' he says. 'Choose a smoky wood finish for the internal shelving for a stylish edge.' 

Finally, don't be afraid to add subtle touches of opposing, darker neutrals in a white kitchen.
