4. The Classical Design Style
The classical design style is style inspired by the Greek and Roman empires. It has a quiet strength because of its traditional elegance and uncluttered efficiency. The main purpose of this style is to achieve visual balance, and for the kitchen it means the room must have a focal point such as the stove, window, or kitchen island, from which balance is achieved.
If you want your kitchen to reflect the classical look you must seek to achieve order, symmetry and balance in the kitchen. The colour scheme is generally yellow, blues, greens, browns, softer muted hues like terracottas, grays, and pink. Black and white can be used in these kitchen to help it portray a style of elegance. This reserved style makes use of natural materials such as wood, stone and marble.
Here are some examples of the classical design style for kitchens.
