Victorian Kitchens

A cooking space design doesn't get much more romantic than an early 18th century Victorian kitchen style.

White or richly stained cabinets, ornamental molding and an overall romantic style are the hallmarks of a Victorian kitchen design. While this style can be similar to Old World kitchen design, the elaborate and ornate nature of Victorian style is unmistakable.

In the case of a Victorian kitchen with antique white cabinetry, elegant crown molding will provide an extra finishing touch to the design. Pair these cabinets with black granite countertops and neutral tile flooring for an overall Victorian feel. If you have the ability to incorporate a dark stone backsplash or exposed wall, then these accents will add to the romantic elements that are popular with this kitchen design.

If you are choosing a kitchen island for the area, then consider topping an old dresser or desk with a countertop for use as an additional surface space. While traditional kitchen islands might certainly have their place in a Victorian kitchen, repurposed dressers and desks often have a rounded, feminine feel that is common to this kitchen design.

Accent a Victorian kitchen with bursts of color, like a rosy pink, or patterns common to the Victorian era like a floral wallpaper or chair cover.
