Your kitchen is one of the most commonly used spaces in your house and you should think whether you want to undertake a classic or contemporary kitchen renovation. Given the time commitment and the cost to complete a kitchen renovation, you should take the time to consider a design you will both love today and in ten years. Design trends come and go, but classic and contemporary kitchen designs have always stood the test of time.
A contemporary kitchen design is a sophisticated and clean look. It can be described as minimalistic. Handleless hardware, high gloss finishes, and glass backsplashes are popular choices. Overwhelmingly, white is the popular color choice in classic kitchens with pops of bright colors used as accents.
Designing a classic kitchen brings in elements of coziness and nostalgia. It invites a sense of pleasant hospitality to your home. A classic kitchen design uses wood materials that flow from your floor into your cabinetry. The design is simple and achieves that old-home feeling. Neutral colors like whites, creams, and grays are the focal point and natural light is used to illuminate the space.
Considerations When Choosing a Design
On the most basic level, a classic kitchen design uses more wood elements than a contemporary one. If you already favor one over the other your choice is simple. If not, here are some other considerations.
Style of Your Home
Consider the overall style of your house when remodeling your kitchen. If you live in a classic home, think about whether a contemporary kitchen will look out of place.
Most homeowners design their homes with both classic and contemporary styles throughout. Any kitchen style can work in your home depending on your taste. If you’ve made a decision—or need help with a design—reach out to Diamond Hill Builders.
