Timeless elegance — create a classic kitchen.
A classic kitchen is a space that celebrates the past while accommodating the needs of modern living. Opt for a traditional layout, keep your base colours simple and invest in staple furniture and classic kitchen lighting. Here are some design tips and inspiration.
Classic design that stands the test of time
Start with a solid foundation of traditional kitchen features such as study and simplistic cabinetry made from natural materials. Any classic kitchen is a perfect marriage of expert craftsmanship and simple but functional design.
Why a kitchen island works so well
Not only does a kitchen island look great, but it’s practical too. It draws the eye to the centre of the room, makes a natural hub for hosting and acts as an alternative dining space. For day-to-day use, it’s perfect for food preparation or informal family hangouts.
Contemporary touches: mix the old with the new
A classic kitchen design doesn't mean shying away from contemporary elements. Mix in modern appliances such as a wine fridge or a sleek modern dining table to strike the perfect balance between old-world charm and functionality. Take the time to make sure appliances are installed properly and with bespoke units for seamless integration.
Lasting storage solutions
When it comes to kitchen storage, consider cabinets and cupboards in a more traditional style with raised panels. Opt for classic round cabinet knobs or those in more rustic materials like aged brass or antique bronze.
In the kitchen, storage is key to maintaining a clutter-free space. Built-in cupboards and drawers will keep your kitchen essentials organised and out of sight.
Timeless white — an elegant canvas.
A classic white kitchen is the epitome of timeless taste. It serves as a versatile backdrop for classic design elements but allows plenty of room for creativity and personality. White walls make a space feel open and airy but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t then add a splash of colour for cabinets or your kitchen island.
So whether you’re thinking of investing in a new kitchen or just updating your style in your current space, consider going for a classic kitchen design that is really meant to be lived in.
