Breaking it Down

A traditional kitchen is a favorite to many. It’s beautiful ornamentation with stacked moldings, carvings, and woodwork makes a traditional style kitchen a classic. As for the doorstyle, a raised panel is definitely the way to go! Although, a recessed panel could work as well. Depending on how detailed it is and what you pair it with could help your kitchen lean more traditional. Think beading and applied moldings. In addition to the doorstyle, the other material you select, such as the countertops can help sway the style of your kitchen.

Color Schemes

A traditional style kitchen could be any color scheme you so desire, but steering away from too many bold colors is a wise choice. However, color here and there is totally fine! We love the pairing of navy blue and white – it’s a beautiful combination! But overall, neutral tones and accentuating the natural elements of wood and stone is a beautiful way to enhance a traditional kitchen.
