Traditional kitchens

Drawing from historic traditions, traditional kitchen cabinets reflect the styling of 18 or 19th century furniture. Consisting typically of face frame door construction, inset with butt hinges, commonly having raised panels, or flat recessed panels with a moulding detail around the interior edges . Often times traditional styling incorporates classic architectural details like fluting, reeding or carvings and complex moulding.

Transitional kitchens

Maintaining some of the elements of traditional styling, transitional styling attempts to simplify the elements of the cabinetry, and streamline the look for a more calm, tailored look. The transition to contemporary can be gradual and restrained, but doesn’t buy into all the elements of contemporary styling. The crown, for example, may have a simple inside curve versus an ogre with multiple steps. Door styling like a Shaker or Arts and Crafts are all early modern, but considered transitional.

Contemporary kitchens

Modern kitchens are great look, popular today, even in traditional architectural spaces. The cabinetry becomes nondescript in detailing.  The overall location of mass is what drives modern design, as well as function. Typically the doors are slab, and exotic wood is often used. Crown moulding are often eliminated or minimized to a narrow piece.

Art Deco is early modern as is Shaker, and can be categorized under transitional.
