European Kitchen Design Ideas

Ready to spruce up that old kitchen? Try these five tried-and-true European design tricks:

  1. Frosted glass: Cabinets with frosted glass fronts and lighting inside are all the rage. Showcase a few pieces of uniquely-shaped dinnerware inside them for added pizazz.
  2. Tall cabinets: Rather than use the typical base-and-top cabinets found in most American kitchens, opt for elegance with cabinets that rise from the floor to the ceiling. These tall kitchen cabinets can be frosted for even more modern intrigue.
  3. Elegant faucets: Forget the old clunky faucets of yesteryear or even the gracefully curved modern versions. European kitchen design makes good use of art as part of the daily experience. Dramatic faucets, curved with wide berths and even with LED lights to illuminate the water are excellent ideas for spicing things up.
  4. Modern lines: Rather than countertops that are boxy and straight, consider countertops that are curved and designed to fit around your body as you move through the space. A countertop that's smaller at one end but very large at the other can provide visual interest and showcase your countertop items.
  5. Old-fashioned bits: Include old-fashioned appliances, like a vintage stove and refrigerator, alongside the modern lines of the European kitchen. The contrast can be a delight to all the senses, and make your visitors rave about your eclectic style.
