English Manor

English-Manor Style Kitchen
Photo: Tom Young

"English Manor involves a heavier look, seen in this kitchen's thick granite countertops. Trim was added to the bottom of the island, resulting in a substantial, furniture-like feel. A heavier cabinet appearance was achieved by extending them from the floor to the ceiling with moldings at top. Although manor kitchens weren't necessarily painted yellow, many were painted, so the painted inset doors reinforce the style."

"The mantle hearth gives the look of a manor-type cooking alcove, a shape echoed in the traditional open shelving found throughout the room. Wooden pine floors, lantern-type lighting, and the island's English farmhouse prep sink further help to preserve the English Manor style."
