Learn the differences between traditional vs contemporary kitchen cabinets
Once you have decided to renovate your kitchen and you start looking at the various options for kitchen cabinets, you'll soon find out that there are many things to consider, such as what material to go with and whether to go with pre-fab cabinets vs custom kitchen cabinets. You'll also be making a decision on the kitchen design. The good news is when it comes to style, there is no wrong decision - it just depends on your personal aesthetic preferences.
Traditional kitchens, sometimes referred to as the classic country kitchen, uses a lot of rich wooden finishes and exudes a warm and cozy atmosphere. They are typically defined by intricate details that show off the wood-grain, raised panel cabinet doors, custom arches and mouldings, custom hood surround, antique cabinet finishes, and decorative door handles.
Contemporary kitchens tend to be more minimalistic, with sleek, simpler door styles using clean straight lines and minimal detail on the wood, painted finishes, use of frosted glass doors, large stainless steel handles to match the appliances, and no crown mouldings at the top of the cabinets.
One popular trend in kitchen design is the transitional kitchen. With transitional kitchens, you mix the styles from both traditional and contemporary kitchens creating a balance that is not too ornate nor too modern for your taste. For example, some homeowners may prefer the simpler door styles that come with the contemporary kitchen while at the same time adding crown mouldings as well. By borrowing from the different styles, you can create your dream kitchen that you can truly call your own.
