Classic kitchen furniture or modern?

When it’s time to buy a new kitchen or renovate an existing one, many of us are faced with a big choice – which kitchen design style to look towards, classic or modern. This choice often becomes a major dilemma, as both options offer their own unique benefits and aesthetics. Some people wonder what are the main features of classic-style kitchen furniture? Would they be suitable for a new apartment or an older house? How will classic-style kitchen furniture fit into the overall interior of the house compared to modern design?

Kitchen LED lighting and white worktop

New kitchen project.

In our articles, we often come across beautiful and innovative projects in the heart of big cities. But this time we are pleased to introduce you to a special and unique project, located in the beautiful and peaceful village of “Lapsas”, away from the hustle and bustle of Riga!

Kitchen worktop and cabinets

Classic kitchen design.

When you study the picture, you can immediately see the unique solutions of this kitchen. Firstly, the kitchen design with two corners is a very interesting decision. The right-hand corner is built in at 45 degrees, creating a slightly surprising but practical design that makes the kitchen more comfortable to use. This design allows the user easy access to the hob for convenient cooking. We also installed the cooker hood at 45 degrees. The kitchen is fitted with painted mdf frames in a classic style.

Stone table top.

The choice of tabletop is the basic element in this project. The white stone surface from Technistone is not only beautiful, but also extremely practical. It provides scratch and heat resistance, easy cleaning and a long service life. While this material may seem expensive to some, it is important to note that there are alternatives available that offer a similar look and functionality at a more affordable price.

Kitchen cabinets

MDF facades and lighting.

Let’s look at the materials: the painted MDF frame fronts with glass give them a classic feel while maintaining a modern touch. And that’s not all! LED interior lighting in the wall cabinets and additional lighting under the wall cabinets and under the wooden shelves are a bright touch to the style of this kitchen. The lighting system, designed by our designers and craftsmen, adds an elegant glow to the whole room.

Bronze handles.

We can’t fail to mention these amazing MANOR handles from Furnipart. These are for 2023. Top design handles, available in different sizes to perfectly match all kitchen elements. This makes the kitchen not only stylish, but also easy to use on all kitchen levels!

Additional kitchen equipment.

The kitchen also has other practical and visually appealing elements. For example, window niches are a great way to bring more natural light into a room, while tall kitchen units provide extra storage space. The kitchen area is completed by a beautiful solid wood island, which is not only beautiful, but also a practical addition to any kitchen, from spacious kitchens to compact kitchens.

Other classic kitchens as examples.

Let’s explore the world of cuisines in more detail! In this section of the article, we’ll introduce you to some other examples of kitchen design we’ve installed for our great clients. Each of these projects reflects the quality, creativity and individual wishes of our customers. Let’s take a look at these classic designs to help you choose and understand exactly what you want in your home!

Kitchen unit Alise

Kitchen unit Alise is a real treasure chest for lovers of history and design. This kitchen offers an exciting and impressive look, reminiscent of classic European interiors. Marble surfaces and light blue or green mdf frame fronts are a particularly striking element in this design, adding a luxurious touch. Despite its classic look, the kitchen has modern features such as integrated appliances and other functional solutions.

Kitchen unit Mia

Kitchen unit Mia offers a harmonious combination of classic design and a contemporary approach. The grey frames offer warmth and cosiness, inviting you to spend more time in the kitchen with your family. In addition, Mia is equipped with a durable laminate table top. Egger laminate is known for being easy to care for and able to withstand heavy use, which is important for those who spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

Kitchen Olivia

Kitchen Olivia stands out for its precise Scandinavian design, which is typical of Nordic styles. Here, niches, extra lines, white and strong functionality prevail. Using white is not just a stylistic choice, but also a practical approach. White helps to visually enlarge the space, which is a great benefit, especially for small apartments. In addition, this kitchen design uses natural wood, giving it the warmth and naturalness that are classic ingredients of Scandinavian design.

Classic or modern?

Many customers are faced with a choice between a classic and a modern kitchen. Both have their pros and cons, and often depend on personal preferences, lifestyle and space constraints. In this part of the article, we will look at both options so that you can make an informed choice.

Classic kitchen features

  • Style: Classic kitchens offer a traditional design with details and finishes such as wooden fronts, marble worktops and internal stained-glass cabinets.
  • Functionality: These kitchens usually offer less modern technology but are built to last.
  • Adaptability: classic kitchens are well suited to almost any interior and usually have a homely feel.

Modern kitchen features

  • Style: modern kitchens are characterised by their simplicity, straight lines and minimalist design.
  • Functionality: this often includes the latest technologies such as touch surfaces or wireless charging, etc.
  • Adaptable: ideal for modern apartments and open-plan homes.

How to choose?

Here are some questions you should ask yourself when choosing between a classic and a modern kitchen:

  • What is my lifestyle? If you like entertaining and cooking big family dinners, perhaps a classic kitchen with a large worktop and a cosy atmosphere is a better choice. If you live alone or with a partner and want to make the most of your space, a modern kitchen could be the perfect solution.
  • What is my budget limit? Classic kitchens can often be more expensive due to more expensive materials and detail work, while modern kitchens can offer more economical solutions.
  • What is my personal aesthetic? Do you like traditional, cosy design or do you strive for modernity and simplicity?


Classic kitchens combine old traditions with modern comfort, creating an unforgettable atmosphere. They bring cosiness, warmth and elegance that enliven every room. Modern kitchens, on the other hand, offer a combination of the latest technology with a simple aesthetic that fits in with the pace of modern life.
