There are many styles people can design their kitchens to become. Homeowners want to reflect their sense of style and personality in addition to having the kitchen that suits you and your family’s dynamics. Today, we at Laguna Bay Developing would like to share a few kitchen styles.
Coastal is cool, calm and understated. Cream, sea green, white, a million shades of light blue, and sea oat-colored browns is what coastal kitchens are all about. Wood furniture and cabinets that are reminiscent of driftwood along with lots of windows, and tile with cute sea-life accents help complete the look. As though you’ll hear the ocean if you open any window, there’s an immediate relaxed vibe that you get when you’re on vacation when you walk into a coastal kitchen. Consider distressed white finish kitchen tables and islands, washed blue and green striped carpeting, bamboo roman shades, and maybe even pops of red with your accessories. They work best if you’re entire space utilizes the colors of the sea, though the light, bright characteristics of a Coastal kitchen style can work in any house.
With lots of character in the way of deep, natural wood accents on walls, ceilings, farmhouse sinks, and cabinetry, and wood or wood-look floors, Country Farmhouse kitchens are characterized by a large open space. Cabinet doors in glass with wood detailing, rustic pendant lighting, and tables and islands that feature large, turned wooden legs, as well as vintage signage should be added. With any color and offer plenty of functional details, Modern Country Farmhouse style, along with all the warmth and character that comes with it, you feel like you’re walking into a historic building when you enter.
Hugely functional, and styled somewhat after a gourmet restaurant kitchen, modern kitchens are sleek and smooth without lots of extraneous detail. Clean vertical and horizontal lines, industrial light sconces, and solid colors in whites, blacks, grays, and browns, and large, geometric patterns marks this style. For your counters, consider concrete or stainless steel. Add oversized contemporary windows that function a little differently. Use tables and chairs that offer functional curves and sleek metal for furnishings. If the entire architectural build of your home is modern and chic, modern kitchens work really well if your entire house has a similar style, melding seamlessly from one room to the next, and even better.
Natural stone, rich browns, wood, cabinets and floors, as well as warm yellows and reds characterize Mediterranean, Tuscan, and French Country kitchens. Dark wood beams, such as a fireplace, fabric in toile featuring quaint country scenes, and furniture with antique features are a few good examples of accents. If your overall decorating style fallows more toward traditional furnishings and finishes, and rich colors throughout your home, these kitchens work well.
Bringing in some characteristics of French Country, and some of the Farmhouse style, a Traditional kitchen style incorporates a style mix of features. Creating a comfortable, homey space that isn’t married to one overall theme is the goal. An example of a Traditional kitchen is one that features textiles on windows, floors, and furniture that bring elements of nature inside along a bay window with a bench seat or breakfast nook. Bold, geometric patterns and clean lines don’t work in a traditional kitchen. Instead, consider marble countertops, furniture with turned legs, cabinet pulls with pattern and detail.
