Traditional Kitchens

A traditional kitchen remains at the top of the wish list for many renovators. With so many options available, clever buyers who want to avoid changing trends are sticking to a classic, ever-popular look that is anything but boring.

So, what exactly is traditional when it comes to a kitchen? The most notable defining feature of this style is shaker doors. A shaker kitchen features a recessed square panel and is designed with a focus on practicality. For a slightly more elegant look, a beaded shaker features delicate beading around the centre panel.

Another feature that often goes hand-in-hand with shaker style cabinetry is an in-frame build, consisting of a surrounding frame and doors that open within. In-frame kitchens are one of the earliest kitchen designs and are extra-durable due to the external surrounding frame. Notable kitchen brands that specialise in traditional designs include Neptune, deVOL, Chalon & Mark Wilkinson – some of the most sought-after designers in the kitchen industry!

Additional features associated with the style are basket storage, open shelving units, plate racks and an overall homely, welcoming look. Sounds familiar? A traditional kitchen is close in style to the sought-after country or farmhouse style kitchen and can include many of the same features. The great news is, fitting your kitchen with the latest technology or luxury appliances or worktops won’t detract from its classic appeal.

Like many renovators, you may want to incorporate the best features of contemporary and classic styles by creating a modern traditional kitchen. Contemporary touches that meld well with a classic look include cup handles, stylish pendant lighting and a modern paint palette. Wooden worktops are a go-to, fail-safe choice for traditional styles that can lend an interior a rustic feel, while stone worktops look great and will ensure a design looks current.

Perks of a traditional kitchen? Classic timber kitchens are perfect for painting or repainting (a painted kitchen is another much loved classic). This allows a homeowner to refresh and update as much as they like. Door handles can be swapped with ease on most designs and can completely transform a look. This flexibility is very appealing to anyone who likes to make changes to their decor.

UKE buyers will often purchase a high-quality wooden or painted kitchen and transform it with paint and handles for a new look – just take a look at our customer stories here to see.  For those taking on a period property renovation, a kitchen like this can be just the ticket for adding value and retaining character.
