Timeless Traditional Kitchen Design
A traditional kitchen design is warm and cosy, inviting everyone into the kitchen to cook, eat, talk and relax. A traditional kitchen design emphasise elaborate wood trim and moulding, formal fabrics, dark woods and touches of nature. A traditional kitchen design incorporates ornate cabinetry, usually stained cherry or mahogany or painted white, with fluted panels, rosette corner blocks, beaded trim and dentil crown moulding. Doors have panels with slight arches and polished brass fittings. Antique hutches and shelves display traditional dishware and serving pieces. The elaborate details of the cabinetry and shelving are what make them traditional. Tile, tin and beaded board are vintage backsplash options that fit into a traditional kitchen design. Marble, brick, stone and wood bring in more natural elements to a traditional kitchen design. Use natural materials such as these for the cabinetry, flooring, furnishings and backsplashes, mixing and matching to create a warm, cosy feeling.
When it comes to lighting for a traditional kitchen design, its should have shape and detail. Chandeliers and pendant lights with details, such as crystals, ornate shades or globes and beads, are good options for a traditional kitchen design. Tube lighting or recessed lights under the cabinets and above work areas help to keep a bright and warm look for the kitchen. Lots of windows bring in natural lighting, giving the room a warm and open feeling.
