You love the classics. Nothing too fancy, nothing too out-there – you want a kitchen with a timeless charm that’ll look good year after year. After all, a kitchen doesn’t need to look space-age to work perfectly, and sometimes a slight touch of history adds a bit of class.
So if you’re looking for timeless kitchen remodel ideas, consider some of these themes.
Traditional: Ornate and intricate, traditional kitchens bring back the splendor of large old-world kitchens. Adding legs and toe kicks to islands and cabinets gives them an elegant look. Decorative lantern and chandelier style lighting brings a softer look and light to the kitchen. Tall cabinets – mounted and freestanding alike, give the kitchen a much more comfortable feel. When all the details come together, a traditional kitchen ends up feeling more like a living room or lounge than a kitchen.
Classic: While not quite as ornate as a traditional kitchen, classic kitchen themes are no less elegant. Focusing more on neutral whites and blacks, classic kitchens focus on the beauty of simplicity. While decorative architecture on the fixtures isn’t ruled out, it tends to be more toned-down, to keep the space feeling comfortable and neutral. The real appeal of a classic kitchen comes from both the fact that it appeals to everyone, but also from the fact that its look can change at a moment’s notice. If you decide you want to change things up a year later, swap out the furniture, and the whole kitchen fits together in a completely new way.
Craftsman: A craftsman style design avoids superfluous ornamention entirely. Instead, it focuses more on simple function, while emphasizing the natural beauty of the materials used. Rich, dark woods and natural stones complement each other well to create a utilitarian, though warm, look. Make sure to aim for unpainted and stain-coated cabinetry to bring out the rustic feel of this theme.
