Arts & Crafts

Form, Function, and Craftsmanship

An Arts and Crafts Style Kitchen

Designed by Jan Neiges, Denver, Colo.

Exposed Douglas fir wood beams and mission styled detailing in the chairs establish a traditional Arts & Crafts theme.

Grounded in form and function, Arts & Crafts kitchens rely on a natural bespoke look with a strong emphasis on craftsmanship. Recessed panel doors with thick frames are dominant; consider letting the doors into the frame by using flush frame cabinetry. For an interesting accent, contrast the finishes or woods of the frame against those of the door and panel.


Expect to see:

  • Neutral colors found in nature

  • Inset or recessed panel cabinet doors

  • Stained glass windows and lighting fixtures

  • Mullioned glass doors

  • Rich woods

  • Clean, strong lines

 
Shaker: Look to maple, birch, beech or oak veneered woods. For this simple, puritan style, choose inset flat panel doors. Wide rails and stiles are fairly typical in the cabinet frame.
