Kitchen Style Options
Traditional kitchens have a formal, tasteful style characteristic of American and European homes of the eighteenth to early twentieth centuries. Traditional kitchens combine classic design with simple colors to offer a sophisticated, timeless look. This style option usually incorporates ornate countertop edges, elegant cabinets, darker woods, and antique fixtures.
Contemporary kitchens tend to be described as modern, minimalist and geometric. The characteristics include horizontal lines, asymmetry and a lack of molding and other ornamentation. Make any kitchen look modern with bold contrasting colors, clean lines, and simple shapes and patterns. Waterfall end panels are a perfect countertop style option for contemporary kitchens.
Transitional kitchens include elements of both contemporary and traditional design. Ornate accents are not as frequently utilized as in a traditional kitchen, however, are not altogether eliminated as in contemporary design. Eclectic in character, the sky is the limit in terms of countertop style options
Country kitchens are cheery and welcoming and incorporate natural motifs and festive accents. You can create a gorgeous country kitchen by choosing a natural stone countertop in a light or bright color or colors that complement other natural materials commonly used in country designs such as wood. This combination will immediately create a feeling of coziness and the stunning simplicity that a country kitchen should have.
Rustic style kitchens incorporate warm wood elements, weathered stone, and earthy accents. If this is the look you’re going for, try incorporating a quartz countertop with warm, rich earth tones in colors like reds, greens, and yellows. You’ll end up with a countertop that has a rustic, natural look that is made with long-lasting materials.
