Design elements of traditional kitchens

Traditional elements, functional workspaces, and top-notch appliances are a guaranteed recipe for success in a kitchen renovation project, and that’s why we rounded up a few classic wins in kitchen design. When you’re planning a kitchen remodel and looking to inject traditional charm into your kitchen, here are top four favorite ways to do it. These are four staples of traditional kitchens.

Beautiful wooden cabinetry gives a kitchen a sense of presence and distinction, plus with fantastic accessories like roll-out drawers, drawer organizers, and soft-close doors, you’ll never tire of their style.

Great lighting is essential in a hard-working kitchen, which is why we love under-cabinet lighting. This is an easy and gorgeous way to illuminate the countertop underneath your upper cabinets, creating a more useable workspace for chopping and food prep.

A multi-tasking island is a no-brainer — they create extra storage space, prep space, and even can be used as a spot for folks to gather while the cook prepares the next family meal!

An eat-in spot may be difficult to squeeze into smaller kitchens, but our customers love the versatility of a designated dining space, whether it’s a full-blown table or just a small space for  a bar stool.
