Traditional Kitchens

Traditional kitchens are formal and elegant in style, suiting townhouses, period properties and many modern houses. Cabinet doors with raised panels and rectangular inserts, in cherry, walnut and oak, or plain cream, white and ivory, are candidates for traditional kitchen styles.

Team them with black granite or white recycled glass and porcelain worktops, perhaps adding a central island unit for a visual focal point. For the floors, perhaps agglomerate planks in a teak effect. Complete the traditional kitchen look with taller wall cabinets up to ceiling height, possibly with glazed display doors and cornices.

Black or white surfaces, some with mirror fleck, give an upscale look and check out the latest porcelain worktops too. Waterfall ends, right down to floor level, look elegant and stylish.
