Christophe Selvais | Feb 19th 2021

A running concept of a traditional kitchen embolsters one with a return to normalcy. Traditional kitchens are not of course subject to modern styles, as we’re sure you’re aware. They’re the building of time accumulations, half bewitching inhabitants to another time in through the keeping of the tried and true. We better understand how far we’re going, how to modernize a traditional kitchen, and what makes a kitchen traditional? We don’t offer you trends, but lessons. Lessons that continue to espouse strong family values.

Every guest can enjoy beautiful beams spanning wall to wall giving the feel of a cozy country house. We don’t get to see the metal knobs on the face of the classical country cabinets. Plenty of natural light shines off of this kitchen’s black natural stone countertops.

You don’t often hear about a kitchen with versaille floors but here it is! Kitchens with this kind of flooring type exude the ostentatiousness of the French royal palace.

Starting with metal knobs peppered across the olive green and white cabinets you’ll notice both the sink base and the plate rack are columned and crowned with astonishing detail. This kitchen is truly a classic look and feel.

Kitchens that are considered traditional can also at times include accent pieces that aren’t too drab. Like this rounded kitchen island with dark rose curved cabinets.

The pendant lighting expertly utilizes the overhang space above this kitchen’s kitchen island with beautiful rounded corners. History’s indication of ‘self-cleaning kitchens’ really stands out as a number of appliances are stainless steel.

Here’s another classic kitchen design with a more expansive cabinet design and natural wood accents. An offset kitchen floor surface, a luxury kitchen sink, a streamlined kitchen stovetop, and lower shelf kitchen storage to maximize kitchen space storage.

Traditional kitchen custom fit cabinets and woodtones

Cutting-edge innovations, minimalist chandelier and track lighting are seen here. What’s amazing about the kitchen oven is it’s retrofitted with a stovepipe which is not a standard modern appliance. We used to cook with coal and wood and the stovepipe released the heat to a flue or chimney. Now it’s all about electric ranges.

As previously stated, we once cooked with coal wood and gas, but now the electric stove range has become standard. Keeping the kitchen a safer environment whilst maintaining a classic facade.

A conservative kitchen design

Traditional Kitchen houses are all about the columns and crown molding. The 90’s were all about granite, and this granite countertop is capped with a chopping block end.

In the affluent 50’s, custom cabinetry was a standard option. A realistic example represents the white enamel and stainless steel here on display.

Though some may choose more distinct color options, these hues are drawn from a soft and neutral palette. Here, wood tones pull together the open floor plan giving a boundless kitchen space a unified visual appeal.

The emphasis on wall shelves and open kitchen shelving is clearly the main theme, showing off all of the kitchenware and gadgets. Lighting is dramatic and bold without being too dense.

For any kitchen, installing trimmed crown molding where the wall meets the ceiling’s sure to call back to tradition. Small potted plants atop the kitchen cabinets bring us back to nature.

Charming and quaint mosaic kitchen backsplash with offset wall tiles and pink countertops

Here’s a kitchen that houses a mix of the old and new, the traditional and modern, and the kitchen design does find a nice balance. A brass chandelier, checkered kitchen floor, mosaic kitchen range backsplash, and yellowed cabinets definitely herald the Victorian age.

This kitchen is the epitome of the ‘everyman’s kitchen as it’s highly optimized for efficiency. Hanging wall shelves and wall hooks make for practical countertop storage.

At the turn of the century, many homeowners were seeking out smaller kitchens and compact designs. Smaller kitchens were considered better back then as many interior designers crafted minimalist kitchens.

At the heyday of the 50’s, cooking and eating at home was a growing trend for a lot of people. This walk up kitchen bar demonstrates a streamlined eat-at-home experience.

Here’s the first kitchen we’ve seen with a sink stool which, over the years, eases the burden of back pain from standing at the kitchen sink for hours on end. We just can’t get over how beautiful this kitchen is…really nice.
