Casual and welcoming, cottage-style kitchens are inspired by those found in traditional vacation or summer cottages—spaces specifically designed for relaxation and entertaining. Hallmarks of cottage-style kitchens include painted cabinets, beadboard on walls, light and bright color schemes, and an overall comfortable and guest-friendly feel.
Furniture in Victorian kitchens often follows the pattern of elegant, luxurious design, with intricately designed chairs and tables carved from high-quality wood and painted in white or light colors. Lighting can also be a hugely important facet of Victorian kitchen design, with many homeowners who opt for this style choosing to incorporate dramatic, striking chandeliers, which can hang over dining tables or a kitchen island, and provide both illumination and elegance.
Furniture can be both functional and attractive in European kitchen designs. Because European kitchens are often smaller spaces, efficient table and chair sets in wood, plastic or metal—sometimes featuring bold colors like yellow, red, orange and blue—are common, offering an aesthetically pleasing but also convenient eating space.
