The kitchen is essential to the balance of the house and the residents who live in the house. It is so much more than a space for cooking! It is an area where we pour love into dishes, teach each other new recipes and traditions and share cups of tea and coffee over stories about the day. This is why a kitchen should reflect personality and charm. It should be a place that is not only comfortable but inspiring too!

A kitchen should also be well-equipped with tools and accessories, without compromising on the visual appeal. Functional items should be used to bring style and charm into the environment.

What's more is that you can mix styles in the kitchen, opting for classic and modern or rustic and traditional – whatever you prefer!

This is why today at homify, we've put together 10 kitchens that balance modern and classic, showing you just how many options exist! You won't believe how beautiful a mix of styles can look…

1. Timeless

This classic design features a wonderful timeless appeal. The designers have gone for white tones, which create a refreshing and discreet environment. White never goes out of style!

The wooden furniture and steel finishes add that contemporary touch.

5. Plenty of space with everything in order

A kitchen must be well-organized! Cooking is a meticulous job that requires a variety of tools and ingredients as well as strong concentration. 

It is important that these items are easily accessible and carefully arranged. Invest in smart storage solutions and keep your kitchen tidy and organized.

Glossy finishes are not for every person. If you're one of those people who prefers textures and tones throughout your cooking space, opt for a stone wall. It will contrast beautifully with the smooth surfaces and create a wonderful, aesthetic appeal.

7. A touch of nostalgia

This kitchen reminds us of our grandparents' home. There is so much personality and charm throughout! The classic furniture works in harmony with the a stylish and modern fridge as well as high-tech appliances. The result is an innovative yet warm environment.

8. Elegance of pastel colours
