From the architectural embellishments to kitchen lighting and finishing touches, all the elements of a traditional kitchen design should work together. Distinguished, elegant and well-balanced” describes the traditional kitchen, which is why it is one of the most popular looks in today’s homes. The traditional-style kitchen combines elements of European and American 18th- and early 19th-century designs. In this style, choose cherry or mahogany wood cabinetry. Kitchen cabinets crafted from these types of hardwood can have a clear finish or can be glazed to achieve an aged look. Today, offwhite colored cabinets in an antiqued finish seem to be taking center stage. Soft off-white colors brighten up the kitchen, and an antiqued finish contributes to a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Kitchen-cabinet details such as fluted pilasters, wood trim created with decorative panel molding, corner blocks with hand-carved rosettes and embellished wood crown molding distinguish traditional kitchen design. For the cabinets’ door style, raised panels are the most popular. A countertop of marble or granite fits well into a traditional setting. Corbels and brackets should not be looked at as merely functional kitchen hardware. Very popular in traditional kitchens, these embellishments are used widely for decorative purposes as well as for kitchen-countertop support or under the kitchen range hood.
