Remodeling your kitchen is a big job, one that requires the advice and expertise of a contracting team to ensure the quality and timely construction of your renovation. We’ve completed countless of kitchen remodels in North Attleboro / Attleboro and surrounding areas and would love to outline some of the popular styles and ideas we’ve designed and constructed.
Kitchen Styles: Farmhouse, Rustic, Modern, Traditional, Contemporary, Classic
Farmhouse Kitchen Renovation
Farmhouse kitchens tend to offer that homey feel and offer great functionality and comfort. Many feature open shelving, wide sinks, big kitchen tables, and classic barn-style flooring (wide knotted wood planks). Farmhouse kitchens are becoming more and more popular especially as the wide white sinks and unique faucets are much easier to find from manufacturers over the past couple years. Try walking through a Home Depot, Lowes, or IKEA, and not finding an apron style sink – it’s unlikely.
- Apron or wide white sink
- Butcher block countertops
- White or pine (knotted) cabinets
- Wide plank floors
- Open shelving
- Large wooden dining table
There’s something about a worn / distressed rustic kitchen with integrated new stainless steel appliances that makes it so darn sexy. The balance of old and new and the contrast between rough hewn and shinny can truly make a rustic kitchen a piece of art. Today, rustic kitchens rival the classic white kitchen in popularity. While this style kitchen tends to be a bit darker, the darker wood can offer a warm and comfortable glow with the proper lighting fixtures. Try a light colored concrete countertop that will balance the over-kill of wood but still provide a natural feel.
- Stone / slate
- Stainless steel appliances
- Wood or concrete countertops
Modern Kitchen Remodel
The term “modern” can actually be used for a wide range of styles, however modern kitchens typically include frameless cabinets and sleek / simple hardware. A lack of ornamentation is a good thing, the kitchen cabinets and appliances are what creates the look.
- White countertops
- Glass / Gel backsplash
- Simple sleek appliances
Traditional kitchens are extremely popular because of their elegance and ability to “fit-in” in most residential homes. They boast decorative moldings and corbels, raised-panel cabinets, some antique finishes and furniture-like appeal. Traditional kitchens are truly defined by their detail and require quality built cabinets and an experienced group of carpenters to achieve that gasp of beauty.
- Grooved cabinets (cream/white, dark, or even a combination of the two)
- Granite or quartz countertops
- Stainless steel appliances and hardware
- Cabinet moldings (the molding does not always need to but against the ceiling, it can rest on the top of the cabinet. A custom fit (typically requiring raised-panel cabinets) will really make a difference allowing the molding to connect the ceiling and cabinets and create even more height for the room.
Contemporary Kitchen Remodel
Contemporary kitchens are often very sleek but in a playful / creative type of way which sets itself apart from modern kitchens. Funky furniture and bright splashes of color are just a couple of elements that give a kitchen its contemporary look.
- Stainless steel appliances
- Funky furniture and bright colors
- Creative layout
Classic Kitchen Remodel
Last on our list but certainly not least is a classic kitchen. This style probably varies more than all of the others. Popular classic designs include white kitchen cabinets with hints of black (hardware, chairs, etc.) and simple architectural details. This is commonly the base of a classic kitchen but many homeowners add a touch of traditional as they see fit.
- White cabinets
- Black accents
- White subway tiles for backsplash
