The color choice for appliances is also very important and contributes to the total design statement. I would suggest if you are planning a traditional style kitchen use matching white wood front decorator panels on the dishwasher and refrigerator fronts as they will blend in better with the total look and use your choice for ovens, cook tops and sinks as stainless steel or black. In a contemporary style kitchen many designers choose to accent all appliances with contrasting colors to create a more dramatic look. In the past many people felt that white kitchen cabinets were only for showrooms and thought white was too much work to maintain. With today‘s new wood finishes and synthetic materials white kitchen cabinetry is as easy to maintain as any other stained color. White kitchen cabinets have been in style for the past 20 years and show no signs of going out of the style trends to date. It is much easier to change color themes from time to time by changing window treatments, place mats and countertop accessories with new accent colors if you choose.
Many people are using tumbled materials when making their decision from the endless amount of kitchen tile backsplash ideas. While you may have ruled out glass, steel and ceramic, you still have some big choices to make. The most popular types of tumbled tiles are made from travertine, limestone and marble but ultimately the decision has to be yours. What works for other people may not look the way you want it to in your kitchen.
A family with a traditional kitchen will find the room automatically becomes a center for family activity and interaction. The merits of this kind of space, where members of a family are able to relax, talk, and at the same time make productive contributions toward their nourishment, are instantly apparent to anyone who has compared the feeling of being in traditional kitchens to that of being in their more formal and less inviting modern counterparts. Traditional kitchens offer a sense of well being, luxury, and down-home stability, qualities that are not echoed in more modern designs.
