Minimal and Modern
As mentioned, your personal style will be the largest factor in what color and design you will choose to incorporate into your new kitchen. Modern minimalism is seen on the cover of countless home design magazines, and with good reason! Marked by clean lines and no fuss, there are few rooms that are better to keep clean and simple than the kitchen. Consider a calming grey wood stain and cabinets with simple small handles.
For the countertops, consider the needs of your family in addition to your preferred style. Granite is a stunning popular option, but the maintenance and resealing required to prevent staining is something to factor into your decision. For this reason, quartz has risen in popularity and the beautiful white and neutral colors throughout it compliments a minimal clean kitchen perfectly. A modern kitchen is often completed with shiny stainless-steel appliances, sure to stand the test of time in your new kitchen.

Beautiful cabinets with medium to dark woods like oak, cherry or mahogany will add a homey warmth to your traditional kitchen for that timeless traditional feel.
