Melbourne is the most liveable city rated such in both 2017 and 2018. So for many Melbournites their kitchen is the focal point of living! When it comes to kitchen design in this cosmopolitan city, the traditional kitchen style has never really lost its appeal. Fitting perfectly with the overarching theme of Melbourne being fashionable, timeless, and trendy, these classic styles of kitchens are always a great choice.

Many homes in Melbourne still have their original kitchens, making them the perfect starting point for a renovation. Other kitchens are brand new and built from scratch, giving a completely blank canvas to design a kitchen that looks like it stepped out from a more stylish bygone age. Whichever option you have, there are plenty of ways to make the traditional Melbourne kitchen come to life in your home.

The Appeal of Traditional Kitchens

When you stroll through the streets of Melbourne, whether it’s in the bustling city or one of the neighboring suburbs, you’ll definitely feel that classic vibe. The traditional kitchen is something that fits so perfectly with this style, and lets homeowners use the foundations that are already in their home to build something even more amazing.

Traditional kitchens are often high in nostalgic value, which makes them especially appealing. When you’re looking to renovate your home but don’t want to lose the classic touches, a kitchen remodel is something that can certainly be done with style. On the other hand, you can build a new kitchen from scratch that has a traditional look so even if you own a newer home there’s no need to miss out on this timeless appeal.
