Traditional Kitchen

My Picks

Pin It!

Capture classic character with traditional kitchens that feature elegant essentials, architectural interest, and formal appeal. Browse these pictures of American and European-inspired kitchens to find a wealth of traditional kitchen design ideas and details that present this time-honored style in refreshingly personalized ways. See how traditional kitchen cabinets, generally constructed from cherry, walnut, or mahogany and sporting framed, raised-panel doors with beaded detailing, take a furniturelike turn with shapely legs, crown-molding ornamentation, clear-glass doors, and stained, white-painted, or glazed finishes. Think age-old substance when pulling together a traditional kitchen design. Mix traditional kitchen cabinet finishes, add an apron sink, include mantellike plaster or wood range hoods, and highlight cabinets and islands with brackets, corbels, fluted posts, and carved embellishments. Discover ways to add interest by including paneled and/or beamed ceilings, handsome tiled or beaded-board backsplashes, and bright white Carrara marble or black soapstone countertops. Learn how to gently turn the tide on traditional by blending in stainless-steel appliances, glass-tile backsplashes, and cherished collections. It's this mix of period and personal touches that makes for traditional kitchens that stand the test of time.
