Classic flooring. Although wood floors in a farmhouse kitchen are always on point, they aren’t your only option — black and white tile and checkered linoleum also feel true to the style. If you do choose wood, you can either leave it natural or paint it, both of which are appropriate.
Mediterranean-style kitchens. Flared hoods, hand-painted tile, warm wood cabinets, beamed ceilings and arched cooking alcoves are just some of the features that put Spanish revival kitchens on the most-wanted list.
Flush inset or framed cabinetry. The type of cabinet construction can have a significant impact on the way a kitchen looks. Full overlay or frameless cabinets are associated with a more contemporary way of building a cabinet — the door overlays the frame of the cabinet, and you don’t see any exposed hinges. Flush inset or framed cabinets are associated with an Old World way or furniture-style way of building cabinets. With this sort of construction, you’ll see the frame around the doors, and the doors and drawers are set flush with that frame. You’ll also see exposed piano hinges in silver, oil-rubbed bronze or even antique brass.
Traditional kitchens are defined by their details, and creating eye-catching detail is not just as simple as putting legs on an island. But whether they’re Old World or Mediterranean flavor, traditional kitchens all share the same basic elements. Here are 15 details that help you create traditional kitchen style.
