The traditional design is very popular. This style is both European and American. If you choose the traditional design you will most likely choose cabinets that are more ornate; this adds a richness to your kitchen. Gorgeous wood colors such as cherry, walnut or mahogany are popular. Many traditional designs have a lot of cabinets. There may also be a kitchen island for more room and an added touch. Terra cotta floors in the traditional kitchen is quite elegant as well.
Traditional kitchens are such because of certain elements which contribute to a nostalgic feeling upon entrance. Modern appliances are of course something every modern home needs, but in a traditional kitchen they can be selected for design that compliments a natural, earthy feel instead of stark, stainless steel appliances which detract from the comforting aura which can pervade traditional kitchens. Traditional kitchens are also a tribute to the preparation of a family meal, which in turn allows the traditions of the family to be celebrated and passed on. Many traditional kitchens have a small preparation island in the center of the room, or a large space where two or three people can work communally, making the process of cooking itself an excuse to enter into social exchanges with family members and guests.
Next, you are going to want to bring some light into your small kitchen. Most small kitchen design problems stem from the fact that there are no windows in the kitchen. Thus, it makes the small kitchen look very closed in and very dark. A good way to fix this problem, as well as a good idea to make it look bigger is to add light wherever you can. The best way to do that is to mount small lights under your cabinets. These are lights that you are not going to be able to see, but the affect that they have on your kitchen is going to be huge! Not only that, but a bright kitchen is a cozy kitchen. Since you have a small kitchen anyway, that is a good look to go for. Most small kitchen design ideas are centered around this very theme.
