Traditional vs Modern

Choosing the right style of kitchen for you and your home can be the hardest part of a new kitchen or a kitchen remodel. It is a big expense that you have to layout or pay out monthly for a period of years, this is a cost you do want to have to make again in the near future. There are many things to think about before you are set on the style you want your new kitchen to be based on, two key features being what will fit with the space and style of your home.

Main differences between a traditional and modern kitchen


Traditional kitchen designs use a lot of real wood finishes that can also be painted with pale shades such as whites, creams and soft greys. These are normally accompanied by stone tiles, marble or limestone worktops; however, wood effect worktops can also be a popular choice with the traditional cottage feel. Classic patterns are often added throughout the kitchen for a classy elegant finish. The cooker is also a key feature to the more traditional themed kitchens with the larger range cookers being a popular choice for example the AGA Cooker, the bigger the cooker the better for this style.


Modern kitchens are very different they have a very simple minimalistic and sleek feel. Handleless designs seem to be the trend with this style of kitchen with clever hidden storage. There are normally no patterns used just single colours, these can be classic and bold colours on their own or combined. The overall modern style is more about high tech appliances, straight lines and nothing fussy.

Another thought you have to factor into your choice is the décor and theme throughout the rest of your home. The period of your home can also be key to choosing your traditional or modern kitchen, a kitchen designer will have the expertise to consider all these things while taking your style needs and ideas on board.

It is also known that kitchens sell houses as it is the most popular room prospect buyers focus on. The kitchen is seen as the heart of the home so most buyers have this in mind when looking around a potential new home. However, people will have their choice if they like the traditional style or the sleek minimalistic modern kitchen not everyone will like both styles. The good news is that it is very easy to just update a door front than having a remodel, so this helps slightly with your choice. So, it can all come down to the design and planning which any kitchen company will be able to guide and help you.
