Defining a Traditional Kitchen

The traditional kitchen relies on simple design while making way for a few bold accents. For example, a white kitchen with black granite countertops might include a standout centerpiece, like a bold red kitchen island. These design choices maintain the overall look of a traditional kitchen while adding a bit of spunk to the design.

Traditional kitchens typically incorporate painted cabinets, simple granite or laminate countertops, and hardwood floors. The best traditional kitchens lean on classic elements. Freshen up the look by mixing in modern or industrial elements, like unique lighting fixtures or boldly painted walls.


All White Traditional Kitchen

An all-white color palette creates a crisp, fresh feel. Add stately cabinets and a gorgeous marble countertop to complete the look.


Navy Blue and White Kitchen

Traditional doesn't have to be boring. A kitchen that has traditional lines can use color in a fresh way by mixing classic white with bold navy cabinets and subtle turquoise undertones.


Family-Friendly Traditional Kitchen

A center island topped with beautiful marble, can create a large workspace for the family. Creamy cabinets paired with wood countertops and a farmhouse sink bring a trending touch to the space.


Light Bright

To add some attitude to a classic kitchen: install globe or chandelier lights and beautiful gold/glass sconces.
