Traditional kitchen design has a formal and elegant appeal and typically focuses on the layering of architectural details, decorative moldings and embellishments.  Kitchen cabinet styles are typically flush inset or framed cabinetry and are often designed in multiple finishes and door styles to create a collected aesthetic. If you fancy the more traditional kitchen design aesthetic the feast your eyes on these lovelies…

Nothing says “tradition” like white subway tiles, flush inset cabinetry and a farm sink. One of my favorite kitchen designers Jessica Helgesson (photo: Lincoln Barbour) knows how to tell her client’s story in this old Victorian home. The enlarged kitchen and its multiple layers of classic materials such as white and gray painted cabinetry, wood floors and shelves and brass fittings create a very calm and classic kitchen environment.


This handsome kitchen designed by Studio William Hefner has a distinctive air of architectural sophistication to it.  The spacious floor plan and functional kitchen layout along with the classic appointments of slab marbles, rich exotic woods and a stunning custom range hood is what creates a truly unique and unconventional traditional kitchen.

The traditional kitchen designs shared here were designed to be warm and inviting at the same time telling a story unique to each homeowner’s lifestyle.
