What Defines a Traditional Kitchen?

The traditional kitchen allows for flexibility, but it most often relies on simple design while making way for a few bold accents. For example, a white kitchen with black granite countertops might include a standout centerpiece, like a bold red kitchen island. These design choices maintain the overall look of a traditional kitchen while adding a bit of spunk to the design.
