Browse kitchens that give traditional a little twist by borrowing elements from other styles—from retro to contemporary to glam. At its heart, traditional style is classified by both rich colors (think navy blue and ruby red) and neutrals with substance (such as chocolate brown and khaki) and plenty of architectural details, such as crown molding and intricate trimwork.
