Contemporary Kitchen Style

Contemporary kitchen styles can include clean lines, solid colours, open shelving and maximum storage, all while balancing functionality and style. This kitchen incorporates all that and then some, making this blend of many current trends in kitchen design one beautiful and bold space.  The added detail of the huge wood beams, while creating a Westcoast feeling, adds to the harmony the designer was able to achieve in one space.

Classic Kitchen Style

 

A classic kitchen should never go out of style. Today’s classic style mainly revolves around shaker cabinets. What really adds to this classic kitchen is the white painted cabinets which is popular for homeowners due to the neutral and timeless look, that can be dressed up or down depending on your choice of decor and decor colour themes. Adding to this classic look is the white backsplash tiles and countertops.

Modern Kitchen Style

When understanding what makes this kitchen look modern, a look back to mid century modern furniture could give us clues. This kitchen style is modern for a few reasons; most of which is the high gloss finish on the slab door style. The shape of the pendant light fixtures, the brass and velvet bar stool look, combined with the use of black and white between the kitchen and the dining area makes this kitchen feel modern without the easy minimalist approach.

Traditional Kitchen Style

Using natural materials lends to tradition in any room of the home. This kitchen style is considered traditional because of the natural wood, soft lighting, and the warm brown stain finish on the cabinets. The use of oak wood species for the cabinets, stone counters and wood flooring help deliver a new kitchen in traditional fashion.

Transitional Kitchen Style

The transitional kitchen fits somewhere between traditional and modern styles. What makes this space look individualized can be attributed to all the windows, large kitchen island with room for 5 bar stools and the commercial look of the refrigerator, but its the use of a neutral colour palette on the cabinetry that makes it easy to call this two-tone kitchen Transitional.
