Traditional style kitchens are defined by their intriguing details and embellishments, adding character and charm while still creating function, storage and plenty of style. Creating eye-catching detail is not just as simple as putting legs on an island. In the kitchen, cabinetry, countertops, and backsplashes provide perfect opportunities for incorporating special stylized touches. Whether your kitchen style is Coastal, Old World or Mediterranean, traditional kitchens share the same basic elements. Mix cabinet colors, finishes, and counter depths for a custom, furniture-style look in a traditional kitchen. Traditional kitchens employ details like legs and pilasters on islands, furniture-style toe kicks that make the cabinets look like they’re freestanding, and custom wood hood surrounds that sometimes look like fireplace surrounds. All of these details layer on top of one other to make a traditional kitchen go the full distance.
