European Kitchen

  • A wonderful blending of block color and natural wood. A kitchen design is meant to maximize storage while maintaining the flow of the room.
  • If you’re style is more of a natural look, a European kitchen design may be the right fit for you. Like most European designs, the look is minimal with clean lines. It works well for an open-concept kitchen while incorporating functional appliances.

  • Thin countertops add a feeling of lightness and openness.
  • End solutions with open shelving allows you to display personal items unique to your family or even every day items that allows for ease of access.  

Contemporary Kitchens

  • Contemporary kitchens don’t have a particular style but are often considered modern or futuristic. These designs have several features in common.
  • Sleek with color: Contemporary kitchens are bright and open. Most have center islands with wonderful overhead fixtures that pull you line of sight to the center of the room.
  • A contemporary kitchen is one of the few styles that you can incorporate different materials that include touches of rustic-ness such as a brick backsplash or a metal inlay.


  • Brightness and light are what matters with a modern kitchen. Natural lighting is best.
  • Crisp lines allow the natural elements from the outside to come in by creating an open concept that optimizes your windows and lends your eye to the space outside, giving the feeling of a very organic space.   
  • Modern kitchens don’t have to feel cold. With the right balance of materials and finishes you can create a luxurious space that feels warm. Adding personal accents of color will allow the space to feel comfortable and uniquely yours.

Traditional Kitchens

You can never go wrong with traditional style kitchens. While they might not be hip and sleek, there is a familiar warmth to be found with this style.

  • Coffered ceilings are in and they are glorious. Not only do they add a touch of whimsy, but this type of ceiling can open a small space.
  • Think country when you think of traditional kitchen style colors. Sage greens and slate blues can offset a white center island.
  • Traditional kitchens boast lovely glass front cabinetry that speak of a long-ago style that many farmhouses had.
