The History of the Traditional Kitchen

By dictionary definition the word ‘traditional’ means ‘long-established’ - a term not only applicable to Broadway Kitchens as a company but also to the traditional values and craftsmanship that it uses to create bespoke kitchens for customers. Of course what each person considers a 'traditional kitchen design' will depend on their age, background or lifestyle. It can mean anything from natural wood, painted wood, a Shaker kitchen or Edwardian elegance to an opulent and ostentatious Victorian kitchen.
