It’s not always easy to spot craftsman design. A Craftsman home is notable for its liberal use of natural woods, usually stained in a medium to dark tone and its paneled entry doors. If you like this vintage style, then you should consider these Craftsman kitchen design ideas for your home.
Craftsman bungalows, which first appeared on the west coast during the early 1900s, is an uncomplicated style that still appeals to many homeowners today. It is also a popular style for kitchens, as a recent survey of 1.78 million kitchens revealed that 2.67% of them were Craftsman style. While 2.67% doesn’t seem like a large percentage, it is the sixth most popular design out of a total of 20 styles that were examined.
As the arts and crafts movement, which inspired the house design, promoted an uncomplicated style of house with liberal use of handmade, natural elements, a Craftsman kitchen is easy to recognize. Here are some examples of Craftsman kitchen design ideas.
Note the liberal use of wood in the kitchen. It is found in the flooring, cabinets, the island or peninsula, and the furnishings. While vintage Craftsman homes usually feature darker woods, like medium or dark oak, pine, or walnut, contemporary Craftsman designs may utilize lighter wood tones, like blonde oak, pine, or whitewashed finishes.
Craftsman Style Cabinetry
The entry door of a Craftsman home is notable for its paneled style with a glass panel window. The cabinetry in a Craftsman kitchen reflects this look with recessed or raised panel doors. Some kitchen designs many also incorporate smaller glass-front doors above the wall cabinets or between the solid door fronts.
Bigger is Better
Craftsman-style homes are also noted for their expansive design, which can be difficult to duplicate in a small kitchen. A big kitchen works better for achieving a true Craftsman aesthetic because of their spaciousness. Even medium-sized kitchens with the right layout can reflect the look of a Craftsman home, especially when an island or L-shaped peninsula for storage space and sitting is added.
Some Craftsman kitchen design ideas may also include exposed beams as most vintage Craftsman homes have this feature. With the right cabinet style and the use of natural wood throughout the kitchen, you can easily recreate a Craftsman-style kitchen and make it the centerpiece of your house when entertaining family or friends.
More Detail About Craftsman Design (Generally)
The craftsman style was popular at the turn of the 20th century, when it was a backlash against the overwrought and mass-produced opulence of the Victorian era.
Architects and designers rejected these factory-produced furnishings in favor of decorative elements and furniture that embraced natural beauty and traditional craftsmanship. This style was spearheaded by several well-known architects, including Gustav Stickley, William Borris, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
Craftsman kitchens can be a little harder to identify than other spaces in the home, but there are some features each Craftsman kitchen should have:
- Lots of wood. Wood elements should not be painted, instead stained in rich colors that show off the natural grain. Oak is the iconic wood of this style.
- Colors used in Craftsman style kitchens should be subtle and muted. Try to stick with earthy, organic colors, but if you pick a blue, select a dusky color, like the one shown above.
- Details should be handmade, stenciled, or hand-painted. Wallpaper isn’t something you’ll see in a Craftsman home.
- Mica or Tiffany style light fixtures in Craftsman style kitchens, which are favored for their natural look and intricate craftsmanship respectively.
- Windows should have linear or geometric elements.
- Backsplashes may have handcrafted tiles.
- Bronze, brass, and copper are popular metals, particularly for cabinet pulls and faucets.
Cabinetry is another feature that can make or break a Craftsman kitchen. Rich woods and clean lines are key to a craftsman kitchen. Remember to keep the details simple, without a lot of intricate carvings.
Countertops in Craftsman style kitchens are typically granite or soapstone, and the floors are natural materials, including hardwood, stone, or slate.
If the kitchen has an attached eating area, having built-in bench seating is a must-have.
