The first question you might have after reading the title of this post is: “What is a classic kitchen?” I thought a lot about what makes a kitchen classic as I was looking through our sneak peek archives. And, for me, a classic kitchen is one that is timeless. And so unsurprisingly, many of these kitchen are white (and if they are not white, they are a subtle gray). After all, a white kitchen is pretty timeless. It feels clean (which is how you want your kitchen to feel), yet it also feels unfussy and subtle. But the best thing about a white, classic kitchen is how the look of the kitchen can be transformed by changing small details. So we have some “classic” kitchens that feel a little country, some that feel city, some that feel poppy and some that feel subdued – and that’s what makes the classic white kitchen so great. It can really change with you.
It’s funny how things overlap in life sometimes — this Before & After dropped in my inbox just as I was attempting to make my first-ever mosaic design. I’m using standard pre-cut tiles, but after seeing Marisa’s lovely kitchen backsplash, I’m inspired to break a few china pieces and play around. The dark grout was an incredibly inspired choice — not only does it add a great moment of contrast in the newly white-washed kitchen, but it also makes the mosaic pattern stand out much more than it would on a light background. Lest we forget the other key ingredients to this successful kitchen redo, I have to say I also love the dark painted floors, the striped rug and the colorful accessories popped in here and there. Nicely done, Marisa!
The beautifully substantial countertop cupboards from deVOL’s Classic English range run along the back wall of the showroom. “I was very influenced by our Peckham Rye kitchen, its completely new feel was such a big hit with our customers that I felt maybe it was time to be brave and step outside our comfort zone,” Helen says.
