Distinguished, elegant, magnificent, and well balanced look identifies today's traditional kitchen. Traditional style kitchen combines
elements of European and American 18th- and early 19th-century design. Fine-crafted details like
carved wood molding, corbels, and
furniture onlays not only add personality to the traditional kitchen but transform every
day tasks and commonplace chores into social occasions or shared activities with friend and family. People's appetite for life is reflected
in the spirit of their home.
The heart of that home has always been the kitchen that deserves to be as beautiful as the spirit of the owner. Your kitchen will inevitably make a statement, that is why it is important that you stay true to your own aesthetic sensibility. And remember, it isn't money you spend on your kitchen, but the attention you pay to the details, architectural embellishments, and the private passions expressed in your design that makes your kitchen uniquely yours.
From the architectural embellishments to kitchen lighting and finishing touches, all the elements of
kitchen design should work together to make a fulfilling whole. For a Traditional kitchen choose
cherry or mahogany wood cabinetry. Kitchen cabinets crafted from these types of hardwood
can have a clear finish or can be glazed to achieve an aged look.
Painted white kitchen cabinets are appropriate for traditional kitchen design; but lately, off-white colored cabinets in antiqued finish seem to take a center stage. Maybe because soft off-white colors brighten up the kitchen, and an antiqued finish contributes to relaxed and cozy atmosphere; or maybe because an antique finish highlights the beautiful details on hand-carved moldings and other kitchen embellishments transforming the inanimate hand-crafted objects into animate objects of your affection.
