The Inman Team brings to you our favorite Kitchen ideas and designs for every style of kitchen, if your thinking of remodeling or just trying to spruce up your Kitchen for Summer we bring you our favorite designs:
Classic & Time Tested
According to the Kitchen Design blog, Traditional Kitchens have an elegant and formal appearance, these designs often feature detailed molding, rich wood cabinetry, and period styling. Traditional kitchen islands are often designed to resemble antique furniture to convey a sense of history.
- include ornamental wood hoods & raised panel doors.
- decorative wood door panels to conceal the cold steel of modern appliances.
- Traditional kitchens are defined by their details, which can include arches, decorative moldings and corbels, raised-panel cabinets, a mix of antique finishes and furniture-like turned legs — even a chandelier. Whether they have a classic American or old-world flavor, they still carry the stamp of their owners’ personal style.
- Architectural Details that feel layered; arches, moldings, beams, island legs etc.
Clean & Sleek
When we say modern we usually think of frameless cabinets, sleek and simple hardware, strong horizontal lines and a lack of ornamentation, with the natural beauty of the materials shining through.
- flat surfaces, geometric forms, and minimal ornamentation.
- While wood veneer and stone are occasionally used, materials in modern kitchens are more often man-made, including plastic, metal, concrete, and glass
- Often feature flat slab doors.
- By avoiding excessive details, modern cabinetry gives the room a clean and spacious look. Crown molding, wood carvings, and raised panel door styles are avoided, but curved and angled elements are quite common.
- Modern cabinets are usually faced with plastic laminate or wood veneer, with the wood grain often oriented horizontally to give the cabinetry a sense of motion and width.
Comfortable & Functionality
- Farmhouse sinks, beadboard panels, and open shelving are trademarks of country kitchen designs.
- Knotty wood cupboards or painted and glazed cabinets with simple styling provide a traditional country feel that’s not too stuffy.
- Popular cabinet styles include the standard raised panel or beaded flat panel cabinet doors with a simple frame.
- Wide-planked wood floors, antique brass hardware, knotty pine furniture, and antique knick-knacks all contribute to the casual atmosphere of the country lifestyle.
- Decor include a lantern sitting on a shelf, and images of roosters glazed on platters and mugs
- Their open shelving, wide sinks, classic flooring and big kitchen table make them easy to work in and easy to love.
Extraordinary & Rich
Luxury kitchen cabinets often feature high-end American woods like Cherry and Walnut with rich, dark stains. Exotic woods such as Sapele Mahogany or Brazilian Cherry can take it to another level. Specialty painted and glazed finishes can also make for a luxurious kitchen. For a downright opulent look, some cabinet finishers use gold leaf to accent cabinetry details. High-end kitchens often feature flush inset, frameless, or beaded inset cabinets with deluxe undermount soft-closing drawers.
- luxury appliances can be framed in with decorative carved posts or fluted columns.
- Occasionally the appliances themselves are panelized with wood. Luxury kitchen sinks can be crafted of heavy gauge stainless steel, polished or hammered copper, or even marble or granite
Minimalist & Warm
Combines both contemporary and traditional features to create an updated look. Not too modern, and not too traditional, transitional kitchens are for those who want their style somewhere in between.
- The beauty of transitional kitchen design is that it allows you to pick and choose your favorite themes to create a style that fits your home and your sensibilities.
- Consider mixing both man-made and natural materials for an eclectic kitchen design.
- Rather than choosing a traditional wood hood, for example, create a focal point by contrasting a stainless steel hood against the wood cabinetry.
- Likewise, celebrate the classy look of your stainless steel appliances by eschewing the traditional wood door panels that some people use to hide them.
- Shaker cabinet doors in modern finishes, stainless steel handles, and glass tiles can make a transitional kitchen much more trendy without becoming ultra-modern.
- Choose your favorite crown molding, corbels and turnings to make the kitchen as rich and elegant as you desire, all while maintaining a degree of contemporary flair.
