Traditional Kitchen: The traditional kitchen design is the most popular. It usually consists of browns, grays, and white. These kitchens have an American style with elegant touches like arches on windows and doors or antique décor on the countertops.
Modern Kitchen: The modern style is incredibly popular at the moment; this style also extends to other rooms in the house such as the living room and bedroom. The style is minimalistic and sleek. The main pieces are usually the countertops and the stainless steel appliances. There is never clutter or loud décor in these kitchens. This kitchen style is almost futuristic.

Sometimes the wall might be brick or tile. The décor may include a mason jar or two. Always comfortable, the country/farmhouse style is sure to make everyone feel at home.
