A transitional kitchen style blends the warmth and feel of a traditional design with the clean, simple lines of a more modern one. In other words, think of it as a means to bridge the gap between old and new when it comes to your home’s décor and age. Within your household design tastes may also differ, and a transitional kitchen design serves as a great way to make all parties happy. This type of style will further provide you with greater design flexibility as your exciting makeover comes together. Common features found in transitional kitchens include:
A mix of natural and man-made materials. For example, you could see wood cabinets, marble countertops, tile flooring and stainless steel appliances used together within a transitional kitchen design.
A neutral color scheme. Transitional kitchens work best with various shades of neutral colors, like black, brown, white, gray and beige.
Ample textures. Where a transitional kitchen is lacking in bright colors, it’s made up for with the use of differing textures. You could easily incorporate into your transitional design unique and varying tile surfaces like rough or polished stone.
More stream-lined cabinetry. Transitional kitchen cabinets are usually of a lower profile, and minus any elaborate designs or hardware. The cabinet materials used are what keeps a transitional kitchen from appearing too modern, and are typically wood as opposed to glass or lacquered. Recessed handles work well to provide a transitional kitchen look.
