Traditional style home décor evokes elegance with its disciplined, structured patterns and finishes. Many homeowners favor traditional style home décor and carry that style over to their kitchen renovation during a new home construction or home remodel.
Traditional kitchens are classic and timeless. This is a great choice for homeowners who aren’t interested in trends and would rather have a kitchen that will stand the test of time. Below are traditional style kitchen ideas for your new construction home.
Attention to Detail
Details like crown molding, built-in appliances, coffered ceilings, and glass-front kitchen cabinets are all part of the intricate details that make up a traditional kitchen. It’s the simplicity of the kitchen design, paired with small details like these that make traditional style kitchens so admired.
Traditional kitchens stay in the safe neutral color palette, with a lot of whites and creams, in addition to warm and natural colors like light beige and tans.
Kitchen Island as Focal Point
The kitchen island is the focal point in many traditional kitchens. Kitchen islands can provide charm to the kitchen, and are multifunctional for food prep, homework time, entertaining with friends or eating meals. Many traditional kitchen islands feature a furniture-style construction, with a detailed base. Others feature wood butcher blocks instead of matching the luxury countertops of the rest of the kitchen.
Natural materials such as natural hardwood flooring and natural wood cabinetry are used in traditional style kitchens. These colors evoke a homey feeling.
Range cookers are prevalent in traditional style kitchens. When you spot a range cooker in a kitchen, this feature instantly makes the kitchen traditional. Range cookers with carving or ornate details are especially common in traditional kitchens.
