There are many key elements in kitchen styles. Finding the right one to suit your home and personal style takes planning. Here are three of the most popular kitchen designs.
- Traditional: Design styles in this category include Federal, Victorian, Italianate and Early American. You can expect to see more ornate mouldings and trim, cabinets made from cherry, walnut and mahogany and antique fixtures and appliances.
- Contemporary: This look is very simple and is characterized by sleek horizontal lines, asymmetry and a lack of moulding and other ornamentation. Materials often are man-made rather than natural: stainless steel, laminate, frosted glass inserts, concrete, linoleum, chrome and lacquer.
- Casual: This design can take on many looks… coastal/beachy, country, and eclectic. Casual kitchens maintain a comfortable feel and can be easily personalized through color schemes, décor and lighting.
Remember, the kitchen is the heart of your home. It is the hub of most family interactions, where meals are created and family and friends gather and should reflect your unique lifestyle.
