If you’re thinking about redecorating or redesigning your kitchen, have you ever considered a traditional look? Traditional kitchens work in modern homes equally as well as older properties. You can easily create a traditional and cosy feel to your kitchen by using a clever mix of colour.
Redecorating to achieve the traditional look
A traditional kitchen conjures up images of pastel vintage colours to create depth and cosiness. You can also add a feeling of space by applying a high-contrast colour scheme. Greys and blues are a timeless, classic combination. Browns and tans deliver retro warmth and are striking. Yellows and oranges are perfect for a kitchen with very little natural light.
You don’t necessarily have to own wooden cabinets to achieve a traditional look. Painting your cabinets with a vintage shade of grey, for example, and contrasting them with a blue glass splashback and blue walls will transform your kitchen into a stylish, vintage space. By simply changing the flooring to a rustic wooden floor or laminate, you’ll achieve a stunning, traditional farmhouse feel to your kitchen quite easily too.
If your kitchen lacks natural light, go for a warmer colour scheme. Shades of orange or yellow will add a traditional edge that will create warmth and cosiness.
Redesign your kitchen to achieve a traditional look
If you’re looking to completely redesign your kitchen, take a look at how you currently use the space. Does it have the traditional classic work triangle? Ideally, the sink, cooker and fridge should sit in a triangular shape, so that they are easy to get to from one another.
For a traditional redesign, you simply can’t go wrong with a classic wooden shaker style kitchen, which today, now comes in a fabulous range of vintage colours. Adding a traditional patterned splashback between the kitchen counters and the wall cabinets will add depth, character and enhance the overall traditional look and feel of your kitchen space.
