Do you love the warmth of a traditional kitchen just as much as you love the crisp coolness of a contemporary kitchen? Can’t decide which style to go with? Why not go with both?
A transitional kitchen is a new style of interior decorating that fuses the warm woods and natural elements of the traditional kitchen with the sharp minimalism of the contemporary kitchen. Read on to learn if a transitional kitchen is right for you!
Rather than having a bold, punchy palette, transitional kitchens lean on neutral colors for a clean, monochromatic effect that is still warm and inviting. Different shades of a color that all share the same tone add variation to the design, and a few accent colors are even allowed, as long as they share the same tone as the rest of the room.
Cabinetry in a transitional kitchen have a streamlined look with a few traditional touches. These cabinets are generally made of wood with charming paneled doors. Neutral colors and sleek hardware give the warm wooden cabinets a contemporary feel.
A hallmark of transitional kitchens is the mix of natural elements, like wood and stone, and man-made elements, like stainless steel and lacquer. The juxtaposition of organic and man-made materials creates a dynamic atmosphere that is sleek and modern while being simultaneously warm and inviting.
Transitional kitchens will often interpret tile in new and exciting ways. For example, rather than having a traditional basketweave tile backsplash, a transitional kitchen may instead have classic tumbled tiles in a stacked grid.
