Model has been an important aspect in kitchen constructions nowadays. Model, or we may call it ‘style’, is has many variants. The major kitchen models in today’s lifestyle are influenced by Western culture. Among them, there are contemporary kitchen, country kitchen, eclectic kitchen, French country kitchen, mid-century kitchen, modern kitchen, traditional kitchen, transitional kitchen, tropical kitchen, and Tuscan kitchen.
Each of them has its own characteristics, which is somewhat peculiar and sometimes unique. The characteristics of such kitchen models are commonly analogous with the broader criteria, the styles of the houses. We all have to know that they refer to cultural, historical, and or geographic influences, but overall, these influences are intertwined each other. For examples, Tuscan kitchen, as a part of Tuscan House, is originally a peculiar style of kitchen in Tuscany. Nevertheless, recently, along with the development of creative interior designs, Tuscan kitchen model is applied in many other places, as representation of creative idea from its developers or designers. Thus, we can assume that what left here now from such cultural, historical, or geographic influences is the identity. Time and place borders limiting such kitchen models today are no more relevant, but still the identities of them have not faded.
Such identities are reflected on the characteristics, which are obviously visible in the eyes. For understanding, let us compare, for example, between French country kitchen and Tuscan kitchen. Reading the name at glance we may assume that both of these kitchen models represent two particular styles of two geographic, historical, and cultural categories. They are indeed so. We will only know and understand these two distinguished kitchen models by seeing and studying their actual forms. We have to come inside ourselves to see each interior, furniture, ornaments, décor, and any other aspects or parts of the room. We will see that each of them has its own peculiar identity shown through, for example, rooster-like ornaments in the French country kitchen, or, flagstone wall in the Tuscan kitchen. In conclusion, there are always bonds between kitchen models, their characters, identities and origins.
