25 Craftsman-Style Kitchen Ideas that Flirt with Tradition

Craftsman kitchen features a large whit island that also doubles as the breakfast bar. Pendantlights and recessed lighting llluminate the room with all the bright elements contrasted by the hardwood flooring.

I should clarify one thing. The kitchens showcased here are either Craftsman style by design or in a Craftsman-style home.

A big kitchen works best for achieving a true Craftsman aesthetic because of its spaciousness. A liberal use of wood is found throughout the room in the flooring, cabinets, and furnishings. Some kitchens may include exposed beams in the ceiling, as most vintage Craftsman homes also have this feature. While traditional Craftsman homes usually feature darker woods, like oak or walnut, contemporary designs often opt for lighter wood tones, such as blonde oak, pine, or even whitewashed finishes.
