Find Your Style

What defines a style of kitchen?

To help you define your style, we’re drilling down on some of the signature elements behind each style.

You’ve probably heard words like transitional or modern tossed around a lot. These design and decorating styles are helpful for grouping types of cabinets, fixtures, and finishes. If you know that you gravitate toward modern, for example, focusing on the collections tagged as modern helps you winnow down your choices. In that way, understanding the different kinds of kitchen styles helps you avoid feeling overwhelmed.

On the other hand, most of us are simply drawn to what we like, irrespective of what the label is. You simply like the tuft of a chair, the look of a light fixture, the shape of a cabinet door, or the texture of a type of wood. 

In addition to noticing the visuals we like, we are also influenced by how a space makes us feel. While one space makes us feel calm, understood, or inspired, another might cause us to feel irritated, anxious, or overwhelmed. Tuning into the feelings you get when you look at different images of rooms can help guide you to your style.

Finally, claiming a style can be a way to communicate your point of view. For example, if you believe in the authenticity of handcrafted materials, a craftsman-style room may help you communicate that. Or if you cherish memories of lively family dinners after a day of swimming at the lake, perhaps cottage style brings that value to life for you.

To help you define your style, we’re drilling down on some of the signature elements behind each style.

Modern Farmhouse

Cozy Sophistication

It’s the family farm you dream of. Here, everyone gathers in a cozy, relaxed space that also feels sleek and sophisticated. Reclaimed wood pairs with galvanized steel. Exposed beams blend seamlessly with crisp white polished stone countertops. It feels both live in and fresh at the same time, full of natural textures that inspire.

Meaningful and Welcoming

Born out of the Arts & Crafts Movement of the late 1800s, this style is all about individual craftsmanship and natural materials. Wood cabinets with copper hardware. Attention to detail.

Coastal

Beach Vibes Abound

The sound of the waves. The feel of the breeze off the ocean or lake. Create a kitchen where it’s perpetually summer — filled with natural light and soft, well-worn textures. Take your inspiration from the colors of the beach. Pretty painted whites and soothing blues. Sand that glimmers in the sun. It’s barefoot living at its best.
