If you answered mostly 1's: Your favorite style is MODERN
The modern style is sleek and sophisticated. It refers specifically to a historical aesthetic movement that took place during the early to mid-twentieth century. Usually paired with glossy finishes, monochromatic colors, clean lines, and simplistic décor, a modern kitchen marries minimalism and functionality.
If you answered mostly 2's: Your favorite style is FARMHOUSE
Farmhouse style makes for a very inviting aesthetic that prioritizes practicality, simplicity, and rustic charm. Country colors make for a welcoming kitchen décor any time of year, in pale yellows, creams, ivories, baby blues, and grays. While farmhouse style tends to reflect the aesthetics of rural architecture, it also embraces modern comforts, creating a look that feels both cozy and stylish.
If you answered mostly 3's: Your favorite style is COASTAL
Just like it sounds, the coastal kitchen aesthetic is easy, breezy, and refreshing. Coastal design is characterized by the reflection of natural seaside elements—surf, sand, and sky—in the home through color and texture. A coastal kitchen is, above all, light and airy, bringing a relaxing feel of summer to any season.
If you answered mostly 4's: Your favorite style is TRADITIONAL
A traditional design style is timeless, classic, and detailed. In a kitchen you may see more detailed molding, cabinetry, and paneled appliances. The key to a traditional design style is that it is comfortable and put together but not overly fancy.
If you answered mostly 5's: Your favorite style is TRANSITIONAL
A transitional kitchen is where the traditional and contemporary meet. For those who want all the comfort of the classics with slight updates to their kitchen décor, a transitional style offers the best of both worlds. A transitional kitchen will have clean lines, mixed metals, neutral color palette, but still have some traditional detailing that add warmth and character to the space.
If you answered mostly 6's: Your favorite style is INDUSTRIAL
Industrial is a design style inspired by old factories and industrial spaces, potentially formed out of necessity when converting old abandoned buildings into urban living. At its core, the industrial style relies on incorporating building materials into the room. Exposed rafters, reclaimed wood, iron, brick, concrete, all are staples within this style.
If you answered mostly 7's: Your favorite style is ECLECTIC
Eclectic style combines elements of different styles and motifs to create a cohesive look. Think boundary-pushing, pattern-blending, and mixing-and-matching of assorted odds and ends, textures, and old and new pieces.
