Traditional kitchen design tends to incorporate natural materials for cabinets, countertops, floors and furniture. European kitchens may do the same, or, if their style is more modern or contemporary, they will often feature materials like laminate, ceramics and molded plastics. But even the most avant-garde European kitchen design can benefit from the use of natural materials, as granite countertops, sleek hardwood floors and aesthetically striking wooden furniture can be a tremendous complement to any kitchen, whether the prevailing design is modern, traditional or somewhere in between.
When it comes to materials, Mediterranean kitchens tend toward natural ones, or at least natural-looking synthetics. Hardwood floors are common, usually in lighter shades to continue a light, bright and welcoming feel. Cabinets are often constructed from high-quality woods like cherry; they can be left in their natural state, stained or painted to add a colorful element to the design.
A galley kitchen's layout is characterized by two parallel countertops that incorporate a walking area in between. Because the space can appear small, it is important to choose light colors to make the kitchen feel open and airy. Stainless steel or white countertops, glass-front cabinets, and colorful backsplashes are all key to making a galley kitchen design appear larger.
