By switching out the lighting, tile, and hardware you can easily change the style of your kitchen. You’re not only saving time, but money as well. Here are four kitchen styles and some fun touches for each.
If you think traditional flourishes and classic neutrals is THE way to go when it comes to design, then add these traditional upgrades to your cart. A lantern-style pendant warms up the crisp white subway tile and dreamy taupe. Antique brass swag pulls prove design is all in the details.

If you regularly find yourself wondering, “What would Chip and Joanna do?” you might be a Fixer-Upper fanatic. No fear; easy-breezy farmhouse style is easy to pull off with the right details, like a cheery yellow pendant from Barn Light Electric Co. paired against crisp white walls, painted Super White (PM-1) from Benjamin Moore.

Is there anything more charming than a sweet little cottage, especially when it’s packed with personality-filled accents? A geometric tile punches up the backsplash, while a casual-cool woven pendant tones things back down. Embrace the return of brass with vintage pulls, which pop against a hearty green from Pratt and Lambert.
Give your kitchen an upgrade inspired by the well-loved porches and boho spirit of bungalow style. Put a twist on traditional tile with a 3-d textured ceramic subway tile in cool blue. Play off that with perfectly patinaed zinc knobs from The Mine. Pull it all together with an industrial-meets-earthy copper pendant and neutral walls, painted “Skylight” by Farrow and Ball.
