    • Create a Craftsman Kitchen on a Budget

      Tip No. 1. Embrace the warmth of wood. Cherry, maple, or oak cabinetry with a simple square door style won’t date quickly -- and will enhance a Craftsman-style design. Choose stock or semicustom cabinetry to minimize costs.

    • Create a Craftsman Kitchen on a Budget

      Tip No. 2. Build a better backsplash. Simple subway tiles are the perfect accompaniment to a Craftsman kitchen -- choose earthy colors, such as greens and browns, to complement the wood tones in flooring and cabinetry.

    • Create a Craftsman Kitchen on a Budget

      Tip No. 3. Choose the right lighting. Period-appropriate pendants over an island -- or a flush-mount fixture over the sink -- boost task lighting and add ambience.

      Total cost: $63,039

    • Create a Custom Craftsman Look

      Tip No. 1. Invest in custom cabinetry for a distinctive look. Shaker-style doors are the perfect accompaniment to a Craftsman kitchen. For a consistent look, consider cladding the range hood in wood to complement the surrounding cabinetry.

    • Create a Custom Craftsman Look

      Tip No. 2. Add handcrafted details. Attention to detail is the key to building lasting character. Consider adding furniturelike details to the island and perimeter cabinetry to create a personalized look.

    • Create a Custom Craftsman Look

      Tip No. 3. Combine classic materials. A deep apron-front sink -- made from fireclay, soapstone, or granite -- paired with a shapely, vintage-inspired faucet is a timeless combination.
