Enough can't be said for the beauty and sensibility of the traditional kitchen. If you're partial to a simple design that offers durability and authenticity, here are some traditional cabinet design ideas that will absolutely transform your kitchen.

Who says that your kitchen has to keep up with the times? While contemporary designs are gaining in popularity, the traditional styles still strike a heart-warming chord with many homeowners. And the first step to turning back the clock on your kitchen is to start with the cabinets. Traditional cabinet designs set a tone and mood that seeps into the other design areas of the kitchen.

Traditional Cabinet Design Ideas

  • Wood. Cabinet designs in cherry and maple are by far the most requested. Select treated wood products for maximum resistance to wear and tear.
  • Painted. Painted designs are a unique way to customize your kitchen. You can start a new theme or continue an existing one in vibrant colors and treatments.
  • Glazed. Glazed cabinet designs are making a comeback. Glazing gives your cabinets a glossy, enhanced sheen that resists marks and looks great. 

Once you have your cabinet designs mapped out, you can continue your quest for the traditional by adding these accessories to the mix.

Cabinet Accessories in the Traditional Design

  • Hardware. Bronze pulls and hinges accentuate your cabinet designs.
  • Compartments. You can never have enough unique space-saving drawers and cubbies.
  • Islands. Butcher's blocks and kitchen islands give you room to work.

A traditional cabinet design will breathe new life into the heart of the home. Find out the options available to you at your local home and garden center.
