Classic kitchens are timeless and flexible. This comes with other givens, such as neutral color palettes and simple, unfussy details. Sure, a classic kitchen can be deemed too safe for the individualist and too ornate for the purist, but for me it’s like jeans and a white t-shirt: add a beaded necklace and heels or tennis shoes and black blazer and you can make the look your own. (And so can the next homeowner if you’re concerned about resale value.)
As discussed in our story on modern kitchens, it can be hard to distinguish between modern and contemporary. ”Contemporary” typically means of the moment or current, the design of right now.

Rustic kitchens. “Worn,” ”distressed” and ”rough hewn” may not be the first words that come to mind when we think of kitchens. But today rustic kitchens rival the classic white kitchen in popularity — thanks to their timber, stone, brick, vintage appliances and fireplaces.
Paris bistro kitchens. If you long for a sugar-laced café au lait on Rue Monmartre, why not bring a little Parisian style into your house? Intimate kitchen lighting, pretty cookware on display, tile floors and a striped awning ought to do it.
Clean-lined cabinetry. Craftsman style eschews fuss and frills in favor of pure function, and cabinets should follow suit. Straightforward frameless or flat-panel doors, perhaps with simple glass panes, fall in step with the aesthetic. Craftsman cabinets lack carved detailing or other ornamentation but display the joinery proudly — proof of the artisan at work.
