A classic kitchen can be a stunning feature in many homes. With an emphasis on wooden finishes and surfaces, or their visually similar veneers, a classic kitchen can remain in style for years. Unlike a contemporary kitchen that will continue to grow and evolve with trends and styles. Here at Priory Kitchen Studio, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to the benefits of a classic kitchen.


The first of the benefits of a classic kitchen is the practicality. With multiple cupboard spaces and drawer spaces, a classic kitchen has storage as a priority. It is much easier to navigate and use than a contemporary kitchen with hidden cupboards and compartments.

In addition, while a contemporary kitchen needs to be kept clean and spotless, your herb garden or spice rack will never be out of place in a classic kitchen. In fact, a classic kitchen can have a much more homely feel, when contrasted to the clinical and empty feel of a contemporary kitchen.


A classic kitchen can easily be overlooked as out of fashion or old fashioned. But this is not the case. On the contrary, a classic kitchen is a stylish and effective addition to a a range of homes, including contemporary or modern homes. Classic kitchens can suit a range of designs and themes because of the colour choices, and material choices available.

Material choices

Finally, the final item on our list of benefits of a classic kitchen, is the material choices. In a contemporary kitchen, your material choices are fairly narrow, restricted to a majority of man-made solid surface materials, or their cheaper imitations. However, in a classic kitchen, while solid surfaces can still be used to great effect, there are a range of other materials available for consideration. These include veneers and laminates, natural stone and timber, MDF, and glass.
