Four basic kitchen styles can act as the starting point to getting the kitchen of your dreams. Once you have determined the kitchen style, you can add all the personal touches that will echo your personality and lifestyle boldly. The very basic styles are modern, contemporary, classic and traditional kitchens, but what you do with these templates is where the fun and your stamp starts taking shape.
As always, when planning a kitchen renovation, or building a kitchen from scrap, consider the space with which you have to work and then scrounge for photos that inspire you, to guide you in the right direction for a kitchen you will be happy to live in for many years to come.
Doing this research and bookmarking or keeping visuals of kitchens that appeal to you do help to guide you in the right direction for the custom-fitted kitchen of your dreams.
When you look at the visuals of the many different styles you’ve combed through, the inspiration will hit home and you will know, that’s the one for you! It’s a little like finding that shirt or dress you fall in love with and have to have! Let’s look at a few of the favourite kitchen design styles to give you an idea of the direction you may want to take:
Contemporary kitchens can be a little hard to define, but in essence, it allows you to be a little more adventurous in terms of the forms and finishes. A contemporary kitchen more often than not includes some of the elements and touches you would find in many other kitchen styles.
In short, classic kitchens offer a blank slate of white cabinets and black accents. The rest is up to you to add your personal touches that will make your kitchen as eclectic as you would like it to be. Even traditional kitchen elements can be incorporated into a classic kitchen.
If you prefer the complete opposite of a sleek classic kitchen and would prefer to have a kitchen that’s warm and homey, much like the kitchens found on farms, then a farmhouse kitchen is going to suit you right down to the ground! A beautifully big kitchen table on classic flooring, along with open shelves and large sinks, make a farmhouse kitchen easy to use, making anyone drawn to this kitchen want to linger long after meals are over.
Traditional kitchens bring architecture together with arches and decorative mouldings that cry out for antique finishes that smack of the old world, with touches that speak to your style entirely. Traditional kitchens are also clearly defined by the details and personal touches that make the kitchen exclusively yours.
