Old World Kitchen Designs

Photo Gallery and Decorating Ideas

Historic Proportions: Old World kitchen designs borrow from the vast array of styles from European history prior to the 1600s. With natural materials and earthy colors foremost in the design palette, an Old World style kitchen combines heavy proportions with luxurious attributes.

Old World Kitchen with Brick Arches and Antique Cabinets

Setting the Mood: Sometimes opulent and often rustic, Old World kitchens have an antique yet natural appearance. Wide-planked wood floors, stoneware, wrought iron, hammered copper, and antique brass hardware all contribute to the authentic atmosphere.

Old World Decorating Ideas: Period elements such as stone, brick, and metal bring a sense of weight and history to Old World kitchens. Expand your Old World decor with cooking utensils, pots, and pans on display for visual impact and convenient access. These can be hung on the hearth or on a hanging pot rack over the kitchen island.

Cabinets and Countertops: Try dressing up your Old World kitchen cabinets with leaded glass or wire grille door panel inserts, adding some lights to illuminate the cabinetry from within. Consider dark stained wood in Walnut or Rustic Cherry for the kitchen cabinets. While glossy polished countertops are always an excellent choice, take a look at honed or "leathered" granite which has a more rustic satin appearance.

Photo Gallery: Below are some pictures of kitchens in the Old World style. If you enjoy the character and beauty of these kitchens, you may want to take a look at the galleries of French Country, Rustic, and Tuscan kitchens as well. Enjoy the photos!
