Design Style Week: 10 Traditional Kitchens

I try to incorporate all different design styles here on the blog, but I have to admit that I know I tend to show more contemporary and modern kitchens since that's where my own tastes lie.
In an effort to be more diverse I thought I'd show different design styles in kitchens this week.
I'll be covering one style per day including Traditional, Country, Craftsman, Vintage and Rustic.
We'll start with Traditional Kitchens today.  
A traditional kitchen is a style that evokes comfort and familiarity with an emphasis on formality.
Cabinetry will be reminiscent of 18th- and 19th-century furniture.  Countertops are generally granite with a lot of movement or marble.
Traditional kitchens are elegant and timeless.
The key is in the details.  There is embellishment in the moldings & trim, countertop edge details and cabinetry door styles.
You will often see farmhouse sinks and decorative lighting, such as chandeliers, in a traditionally designed kitchen.

Is Traditional your style? What's your favorite part of Traditional Design?

I quite like that first kitchen, but I would say it's probably more on the transitional end of traditional, which is probably why I like it. Plus, I'm always a sucker for open rounded shelves. I can appreciate the beauty in all those other kitchens as well and traditional always lends itself to such great details, but it's so far from my personal style that I could never see it in my own home.

I thought the same thing about that first kitchen--I thought that's why I liked it! :)
