If you like the look of a more formal kitchen, then one with a traditional design may be what you want. Traditional designs often reflect classical European styles with materials, furnishings, and colors reflecting the 18th and 19th century. Since the materials reflect styles from centuries past, natural materials like wood, are found in most traditional kitchen design ideas.

Cabinetry Styles

Traditional kitchens can use almost any cabinet style, but the most common are shaker style cabinets. Shaker style is easy to recognize because the door is constructed with five pieces and they have recess paneling. Shaker style cabinets are the most common style, with 27.56% of 643,808 kitchens having them.

Cabinetry Finishes

While white is the most popular finish for cabinets, traditional kitchens often have an array of wood tones in them. From white finishes to mahogany or black, they can be found in almost every wood finish available. Instead of complementing the wood tones of the kitchens, many countertops are a contrasting color.

If the cabinets and center island are dark wood, then the countertops are often a lighter, contrasting shade. For instance, if the cabinetry is black, then the countertops are often white, light gray, or another light color that contrasts with the cabinets.

Natural Counter Materials

Most countertops in traditional kitchens are made from materials like granite, quartz, or other natural materials, including wood. These materials reflect the 18th and 19th century since it was before the existence of man-made materials. Here are some examples of traditional kitchen design ideas to consider for your home.

Traditional Kitchen Flooring

Since many traditional kitchens have wood cabinetry, most of the floors found in traditional kitchens will be hardwood or wood laminate as well. Usually, the flooring color will be lighter than the cabinets, so even if the cabinets are stained cherry, the flooring may be a light oak color. However, ceramic or stone tiles are also found in many traditional kitchens too.

Traditional Kitchen Furnishings

Traditional furniture in or near the kitchen may include high-backed chairs that are wood, covered in leather, or with tufted fabric to create comfortable seating. The backs of wood chairs may have ornate designs to reflect the types of lines often seen in traditional furnishings. Wingback chairs are also a hallmark of traditional furniture styles.

If you wish for a more formal kitchen style, there are many traditional kitchen design ideas for your home.
