One of the first questions we ask our clients is, “what type of kitchen do you want?” Rustic? Modern? Traditional? Most of the time we receive a mixed answer, like ‘country contemporary’ or ‘modern industrial.’ The truth is that most homeowners don’t know exactly what they want until they see it. And that’s okay. This rundown of kitchen themes will help you decide which is best for you.
When done right, a farmhouse kitchen will offer great style and functionality. Open shelving, wide sinks, classic flooring and a big kitchen table are a few staples of a farmhouse kitchen. These key features make a farmhouse style kitchen feel big, open and homey.
Words like “worn,” “distressed,” “broken in” and “rough” probably aren’t the first to come to mind when considering a kitchen remodel. However, features of a rustic style kitchen like stone, brick, original wood and vintage appliances have them rivaling with traditional designs.
Frameless cabinets, sleek hardware, exposed metal and simple details are just a few of things we associate with modern kitchens. But even the highest-tech kitchen can make you feel right at home.
What is a contemporary kitchen? How is it different from a modern kitchen? Definitions of “contemporary” vary widely. A contemporary style kitchen is typically quite sleek, and, unlike a modern kitchen, is less structured and includes elements of other styles to create its own unique look.
Traditional kitchens are defined by their details, and carry the stamp of the homeowner’s personal style. Some famous elements of a traditional style kitchen are architectural details, framed cabinetry, luxury countertops, hutch-style cabinets and decorative lighting.
One of the great things about an industrial style kitchen is that it embraces the old and the forgotten, and you don’t have to break the bank to achieve the look. An industrial kitchen is great for those who love both modern and rustic touches. Exposed brick, steel beams, freestanding units, lots of black and exposed piping are some classic elements of an industrial living space.
