Even in this day and age of sleek, minimal interior design, traditional kitchens remain popular among homeowners.
Traditional kitchens tend to appeal to keen cooks and fans of country house-style kitchen design, thanks to their extensive use of natural wood and calm, neutral decor.
If you're looking for your dream traditional kitchen, why not see what KBBC has to offer? We stock dozens of traditional kitchens in an array of styles and colours to suit all tastes.
All about traditional kitchen design
Traditional kitchens have a number of benefits for homeowners. One of the main advantages is that traditional kitchens are unlikely to go out of date - while certain design elements may hark back to different historical periods, the kitchens usually make use of those influences that have timeless appeal.
Another reason why traditional kitchens are so popular is the fact that they very much cater for the keen cook. With traditional kitchens, you can expect to take advantage of a high-quality hob and oven and lots of storage space for all of your kitchen essentials.
Traditional kitchens also offer some leeway when it comes to clutter - traditional kitchens encourage cooks to leave their plates, pots and pans on display, just like in a real country kitchen.
Traditional kitchens and their components
Traditional kitchens are made of various components that combine to give them their unique character.
One of the main elements is the classic style of their kitchen units, which are often made using natural or painted wood such as walnut, oak, pine, chestnut, beech or maple.
Traditional kitchens draw on many different historical influences - typical designs range from Edwardian-style kitchens to more modern rooms that share some features with contemporary kitchens while retaining an overall traditional look.
One unique category of traditional kitchens is the Shaker style. Shaker kitchens are known for blending contemporary and old-fashioned kitchen design in a way that creates a strikingly clean and modern look with a traditional feel.
Aside from their cabinets, traditional kitchens are also known for their potential for displaying various items, such as pans, utensils and ornaments - perhaps by using glass-fronted units and open shelving.
This is in stark contrast to more contemporary kitchens where one of the main aims of the kitchen design process is to minimise clutter and ensure few appliances and stray objects are visible when not in use.
In terms of kitchen appliances, traditional kitchens tend to include cookers, washing machines and fridges that complement the surrounding decor by not being too contemporary in appearance.
They may still utilise the latest technology, but are made to blend in with the country-style look of traditional kitchens rather than stand out.
Overall, traditional kitchens are more homely in feel than modern kitchens - but are no less stylish when designed correctly.
