Reviewing dozens of websites to pick your kitchen style can be daunting, especially when the ideas seem to merge into each other. “Where did I see that one kitchen that was perfect?” Well, our friends at Medallion Cabinetry have created some tools that are at your disposal.
The first is their Style Quiz. Answer five questions and learn your style: Traditional, Transitional, or Contemporary. Once you get your result, you can take a visual tour of a dozen kitchens that match your style.
Here are brief descriptions of the general options.
Traditional: Incorporates tried-and-true features, such as darker colors, intricate cabinet and hardware details, and showy accessories. This style signature is refined and timeless, with a strong appreciation for art, architecture, and deep, rich colors. Traditional styles showcase classic details such as stacked crown molding, split posts, arched valances, and decorative turned legs.
Medium to dark wood finishes are perfectly at home in a traditional design and are often paired with paints and glazes,
Transitional: Harmony and balance with a little sparkle and luxe. A transitional style blends elements of traditional with contemporary. If you love classic details, consider new shapes with clean contemporary lines such as a Whitney Corbel in place of the Acanthus Corbel, or a Tapered Decorative Foot in place of the Curved French Foot.
Contemporary: Lighter and bolder colors set with clean lines and minimalist look. You’ll see almost no ornamentation, plus dashes of stainless steel, glass, and light-finished woods. This style signature is beautifully bold and contemporary featuring minimal detailing for a crisp, clean look. Without competition from decorative lines and fussy accessories, color and shape take center stage in contemporary design. Contemporary corbel trim like the photo included here feature clean, simple lines as apposed to those of more traditional corbel trim.
We took the Style Quiz and our Personal Style Signature was Contemporary: minimal detailing with dashes of color and shape, without fussy accessories. We found that the kitchens shown in the visual tour were all pleasing to us. There were also many examples of features that could be combined into our perfect space.
