What kind of traditional kitchen do you have in mind?
One of the attractions of a traditional kitchen is flexibility. Drawing from bygone influences like rustic farmhouse or maybe Victorian townhouse there is plenty of scope to design a kitchen which can easily incorporate any treasured items of furniture you have had in the familly for years and want to continue enjoying. MasterClass kitchens traditional offer has a number of ranges and features that allow the old to sit with the new very comfortably.
The Howarth heritage range has strong Edwardian styling and your Grandmother's antique china would look fantastic displayed in an elegant dresser unit. Hathaway, made from premium European aged oak has a warm, lived in, feel and would be an ideal choice if you have classic free standing furmiture or a time worn table that you want to use as a centrepiece in the kitchen. Range cookers, wing back chairs, stone floors and heavy copper cookware can all combine to lend a nostalgic ambience to "new" traditional kitchens.

In frame kitchens take the traditional look a bit further.
In-frame kitchens hark back to the days of craftsmanship and hand built cabinets. Doors and drawers are fixed to a frame, often with butt hinges, that sits within the cabinet side panels. Historically most furniture were built this way for strength and to ensure the doors did drop over time. This is especially true of military furniture, which had to be portable, and withstand years on campaigns in the 18th and 19th centuries. Today the technology and materials available to manufacturers overcome this problem but the in-frame style remains popular in the traditional sector of the market because it's lineage evokes superior quality - and, of course, they it looks great.
Marlow, Ascot and Henley in-frame kitchens are available in solid oak or ash painted timber. For a truly individual traditional kitchen they can be supplied in primed Canadian maple for you to finish in any colour of your choice.
