Modern vs Traditional Kitchens in Wirral. Which Should You Choose?

NEWS > Modern vs Traditional Kitchens in Wirral. Which Should You Choose?

When looking for traditional kitchens in Wirral, you need to do your research to decide whether a traditional kitchen is really for you. You have probably been looking at pictures of traditional kitchens, thinking, “Yes, I would like that for my Wirral home.” 

But then you might think, “Perhaps a modern kitchen would suit me better?”

To help you make up your mind, here we look at the differences between modern and traditional kitchens. That way, you can consider which style of kitchen best suits your particular needs. 

What are the main differences between modern and traditional kitchens?

One key difference with traditional kitchens is the type of materials used. Natural wood finishes are common, usually painted in muted colours such as grey or cream. Limestone or marble worktops and stone tiles are used a lot too. But the king of the traditional kitchen is the cooker, which is usually large.

This is in contrast to modern kitchens, which have sleeker and simpler features. The appearance of appliances is understated, as they fit seamlessly into the kitchen’s overall design. Cabinets and drawers tend to be free of handles, and clever use of storage space is common. There may be bolder colours, but you are less likely to see floral patterns or other traditional decorations. Instead, it’s all about high-tech appliances and straight lines. 

What is your personal taste?

The main thing you need to do is look at the rest of your home. That should make the choice much more straightforward. For example, is your house filled with modern gadgets and contemporary furniture? If so, a modern kitchen might be the best fit. But some people do go for a mixture of styles in their home, so you could still have a traditional kitchen even if the rest of your house looks more modern. 

What is the style and period of your house?

If you have a period property, a traditional kitchen will probably fit in better. However, a modern kitchen could still fit if done well. It is an important factor to consider, though. 

If you are unsure whether your house is best suited to a modern or traditional kitchen, it could be worth speaking to an expert. We have over 30 years of designing kitchens for many happy customers at Mayfair Kitchens, so we are best placed to advise you on what would suit your home.

Are you going to be selling the house?

If you are planning to sell your home, it is more important to choose a kitchen that matches the style of your property. A traditional-looking house with a modern kitchen might put off some buyers. 

The kitchen is often regarded as the heart of the home, so it can make or break a sale. Don’t be surprised if a potential buyer is keen to see the kitchen. But avoiding a modern kitchen in a traditional house doesn’t mean you have to keep the existing one. You can have a new traditional kitchen that has that “WOW” factor that would impress a buyer.
