Kitchens are a unique space in our homes, and they play a unique (and prominent) role in our lives. By definition and tradition, the space is function‐centered ‐ food is prepared and cooked in the kitchen. But modern kitchens are so much more than a food prep area. They are the heart of the home, full of life and warmth and interaction.
Traditional kitchens are work‐focused and incorporate basic materials in their designs. Contemporary kitchens tend to be sleek and refined also elegant. It's a lovely kitchen that incorporates the best of both worlds within its proverbial walls.
Traditional components: Oversized wood timber. These constitute totally a big visual aspect of this contemporary kitchen, due to their chunkiness and rustic nature.
Contemporary components: The variety of hue and texture here, which adds a modern feel to almost anything traditional. The cobalt blue cupboard under the island, stemware visible in open shelving, and round drawer pulls are all facets of this modern kitchen.
Traditional components: Plaid fabric, window shade, and mouldings. Mouldings everywhere! At the top, middle, also foots of cabinetry.
Traditional components: Farmhouse (apron) kitchen sink with traditional‐style faucet, simple white cabinetry faces. Also the legged wooden island with wood paneling is a lovely traditional touch.
Contemporary components: Modern blinds window treatment (and the absence of colored textiles that would've comprised a shade or valance), stainless steel accents, and marble countertops are contemporary additions to this huge place.
Traditional components: Faux vines adorning the top of the upper cabinetry, as well as a traditionally silhouetted double‐ pendant chandelier over the island bring in a bit of the old‐time feel.
Contemporary components: Integration of a workspace into the kitchen itself, complete with desk and upholstered slipper chair, as well as the overall complexity of the materials used throughout this kitchen are reminiscent of modern living.
Traditional components: curvy marble‐topped wood‐carved island like this would traditionally be a show‐stopper in the parlor or formal living room. Or, at least, a smaller version of it would be. Here, under a chunky decorative chandelier, it's a major player in this kitchen's traditional sensibilities.
Contemporary components: white cupboards, a stainless steel stove (and the token red knobs that go with it!) and modern fixtures, coupled with a vast sense of sheer space, brings the kitchen beautifully up‐to‐date.
