Unfitted kitchens differ from traditional or fitted kitchens because they look more personal, and less typical than the average kitchen. Using free-standing furniture pieces or furniture-like cabinetry, it creates a unique look that’s easy to attain! Kitchens with this unfitted style appear to grown naturally over time as homeowners add freestanding pieces. Primary among those freestanding pieces are a sideboard or pantry cabinet and a work table. Below are two examples of kitchens with an unfitted style built with traditional raised panel cabinets (CliqStudios Carlton) in white or glazed linen finishes.
The kitchen on the left creates an unfitted look by breaking up walls of cabinets into sections of different heights. Then each section finishes with crown molding to give the look of individual furniture pieces. The glass-door cabinets enhance that effect. The island, a staple of modern kitchen design, stands in place of the traditional central work table.
