Your kitchen style is Dramatic Craftsman. You want to work in a kitchen that energizes you while not sacrificing form and function. You love the natural beauty of Craftsman-style kitchens, but prefer to add a little more depth and drama with deep-red cabinets and a stunning view. ENTJ: The Commander You in a nutshell: Logical, assertive, and influential. Your kitchen style is Sophisticated Industrial. Sometimes it takes a hard edge to really push things through. You appreciate strong industrial-style elements — cage pendant lights, metal stools — but you're not interested in roughing it.
