The traditional kitchen allows for flexibility, but it most often relies on simple design while making way for a few bold accents. For example, a white kitchen with black granite countertops might include a standout centerpiece, like a bold red kitchen island. These design choices maintain the overall look of a traditional kitchen while adding a bit of spunk to the design.
An easy and affordable way to update a room, stencils can also create a striking backsplash. They´re also much less permanent than tiles, and you can easily paint over them when you`re ready for something new.
Traditional kitchens typically incorporate painted cabinets with or without glass front doors, simple granite or laminate countertops, and hardwood floors. The best traditional kitchens lean on classic elements, while still allowing room for family fun or guest entertainment. Freshen up the look by mixing in modern or industrial elements, like unique lighting fixtures or boldly painted walls.
Just like the title of the popular movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" suggests, the Tuscan kitchen relies on a neutral palette while mixing in sun-warmed tones of gold and yellow.
