In general, traditional kitchen design styles reflect a period of historical inspiration, and they incorporate a variety of looks including Arts and Crafts, country/rustic and Old World/European. Traditional kitchen designs tend to feature more adornment and decorative flourishes, like cabinets with intricate woodworking or paneling, hardware and accessories inspired by their respective historical periods. In some cases, they may feature distressing or other weathering techniques to inspire a more cozy and inviting design aesthetic. Color palettes for traditional kitchens tend to feature neutral and lighter colors, as well as historic or period colors that contribute to a warm and welcoming feel.

A peninsula can be a great addition to just about any kitchen design, but it‘s particularly useful in smaller spaces where a freestanding kitchen island isn‘t feasible because it would take up too much floor space. Likewise, some homeowners with kitchens with three connected walls may want to explore taking out one wall to create a more open flow between the kitchen and dining room or kitchen and living room. Doing so can create a great opportunity to add a peninsula in the vacant space.

Generally speaking, these kitchens feature two walls, with a narrow passageway located between them. In a traditional galley kitchen, the passageway measures anywhere from 4 to 6 feet wide, although larger galley kitchens may now expand that width and even feature kitchen islands for added seating, storage and food preparation space.

Because visual clutter can minimize an already small space, approach your small kitchen redesign with the charge of keeping things simple. Attain simplicity by keeping countertops clutter-free. Take advantage of unused space, like a bare wall, the alcove above the cabinetry or an empty window sill to add decor sparingly. Uniformity also produces simplicity, as evidenced in a monochromatic color palette and grouping similar items. For example, create visual continuity by pairing like items such as a collection of decorative plates, a set of storage baskets or a grouping of photos in coordinating black frames.

If you have standard-height cabinets with unused wall space above, increasing the cabinets by six inches can improve storage capacity. Utilize cutlery dividers in drawers to organize cooking utensils and tools and keep them off counters. You can stash a small folding ladder behind a toe-kick panel, to help you reach items on high shelves or upper cabinets. White says no matter the storage options you choose, make sure to consider proper aisle space and traffic flow.

Modular cabinets can be purchased from many neighborhood and online retailers, and they‘re usually delivered already assembled or in ready-made sections that can be installed on premises fairly easily.

Besides just using these chairs to sit at a counter, you can also use them to help enhance the look of your kitchen as well.
