Craftsman Arts & Crafts Kitchen Styles

A Santa Barbara Craftsman Kitchen with Center Island

Hahka Kitchens Design and Cabinetry,

Grounded in form and function, Arts & Crafts kitchens rely on a natural personalized 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.
