Transitional Kitchen Design

Transitional kitchen designs borrow elements from both traditional and contemporary designs. Inviting and understated, transitional kitchens marry the sleek look of the contemporary kitchen with the warmth of the traditional kitchen.

A transitional kitchen allows you to be flexible with your design so that you can iincorporateyour favorite elements of contemporary and traditional kitchen designs. As a blend of modern and classic design, a transitional kitchen may include such hallmarks as a mix of manufactured and natural materials, a neutral palette, lots of texture, and streamlined cabinetry. For example, a transitional kitchen may feature a combination of wood, steel, glass, and stone or marble, with a neutral color palette for an ultra-sophisticated look. Cabinets tend to blend in with the rest of the kitchen rather than standing out; visual interest is added to the kitchen with various textures of any material from tile to natural stone. Rather than compete with each other, these elements blend together harmoniously for a unique mix of past and present that suits your family’s design style and functional needs.
