Decorated with cabinets, chairs and tables constructed from quality hardwood. Oak, cherry, maple, and pine are the common choices. Pine is the most popular choice for farmhouse-style kitchens. Due to its knotty, natural appearance, it makes for a perfect fit for the down-home appeal of a farmhouse kitchen.
Rustic kitchens often have a regional American flair. Adirondack, Southwestern, Mountain West or Pacific Northwest feel for example. Others resemble a lodge or log cabin. Common characteristics include cabinets in knotty pine and ceiling beams with warm, rich shades of brown, red, green and yellow.
Modern kitchens are often defined by a sleek, angular and simple design, featuring little or no hardware, flush doors and flat surfaces. In the current era, modern kitchen design is part of a larger trend which has embraced mid-century modern design and furniture, which introduced bold angles and curves to the design landscape.
Traditional kitchens are identified by particular details such as arches, decorative moldings, raised-panel cabinets and a mix of antique finishes. There might even be a chandelier hanging in the center. Even with these details, the owner still has the ability to add their personal touch.
