Luxury traditional kitchens are popular in period properties in London and in the English countryside.

With traditional kitchens it’s all about details and decoration – elements like arches, framed door cabinets with raised panels and mouldings, cabinet and island legs create elegant kitchen designs. Luxury materials are often used in traditional kitchens – marble or granite for worktops, and solid wood for cabinetry.

Although less sophisticated, Shaker style kitchens also fall into this category

Some will argue that Shaker kitchens are more classical than traditional, but these terms are often used as synonyms. Most importantly Shaker kitchens regularly share many elements with traditional kitchens such as recessed or raised panels, framed cabinetry or additional decorative ornaments.
