Traditional kitchen décor remains as popular today as when it was first developed. Combining elements of classic kitchen decorating styles can create a unique space that brings the whole family together. Don’t feel limited by a small kitchen space. These tips will make the most of any traditional small kitchen with the right accessories and elements.
Focus on Ornate Accessories
Since small spaces are easily overwhelmed by excessive decoration, stick to ornate accessories instead to distribute beautiful details. Highly fluted or scrolled faucet handles, drawer pulls, and cabinet door handles go a long way in adding traditional style to a compact room.
Choose Reclaimed Materials
Refinished barn wood and painted cabinets both bring traditional style to a kitchen while making good use of reclaimed materials. These high-impact materials can add a rustic or polished look, depending on what methods are used to refinish the material before it’s installed. Other ideas include repurposing tin ceiling panels as backsplashes and installing vintage glass or ceramic cabinet knobs.
Embrace the Galley Design
The galley kitchen is a traditional style that automatically adds classic beauty to a small room. All the major appliances and countertops are aligned allow a single narrow corridor so everything’s within easy reach. Choose an island or open kitchen countertop for the outer edge to embrace an open floor plan design without compromising the traditional décor.
