KITCHENS

Choosing the right kitchen:

Contemporary kitchens tend to be described as modern, minimalist and geometric. The characteristics include horizontal lines, asymmetry and a lack of moulding and other ornamentation. Materials often are man-made rather than natural: stainless steel, laminate, frosted glass inserts, concrete, linoleum, chrome and lacquer. Contemporary encompasses styles from the 1940s to the present, with Europe especially Italy, Germany and Scandinavia leading the way

Country kitchens are cheery and welcoming, with light and/or bright colours, painted and glazed cabinets with wire or metal inserts, woven baskets, bead board panels, floral motifs, and decorative shelving and moulding. French Country, English Country, Tuscan Country, cottage, farmhouse and garden are popular country styles that share a handcrafted, homespun look.

Old World kitchens, with their large hearths or cooking grottos and distressed, unfitted cabinets trace their look to pre-17th century Europe.
Old World encompasses a wide range of design themes, including Tuscan, Mediterranean, medieval, Castle, French Chateau, Italian Villa, and Normandy or Dutch cottage.  Think natural materials such as stone floors, mosaic tiles, brick or plaster walls and pewter or copper accents

Rustic kitchens often have a regional American flair: Adirondack, South western, Mountain West or Pacific Northwest, for example. Others resemble a lodge or log cabin. Common characteristics include cabinets in knotty pine, hickory or alder; ceiling beams; and warm, rich shades of brown, red, green and yellow.

Traditional kitchens have a formal, elegant look characteristic of American and European homes of the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries.  Design styles within this category include Victorian, Edwardian, Georgian, Federal, Regency, Italianate, Early American and Neoclassical. Expect to see more ornate moulding and trim; elegant cabinets in cherry, walnut and mahogany; and antique fixtures and appliances.

Transitional kitchens include elements of both traditional and contemporary design. Eclectic in nature, they mix natural and man-made materials as well as finishes and textures. For example, an Arts & Crafts or Shaker kitchen can be made transitional rather than traditional by lightening the colour palette, adding bamboo flooring, and showcasing appliances rather than hiding them with panels.
