If you are like most people who are considering remodeling their kitchen, you may be torn between wanting a sleek modern style and a cozy traditional feel; it can be a hard decision to make. On the one hand, modern style has clean lines and modern amenities; on the other hand, it can be sterile and cold. Traditional style kitchens can be charming and nostalgic, but they can be inconvenient and cluttered. That’s why most people choose transitional style kitchens!
What Are Transitional Style Kitchens?
Transitional design is a stylish melding of classic and contemporary. You might see it as only a new take on an old classic or a more modern, more vigorous take on traditional designs. If you are planning on selling your home, it’s very popular among the millennial generation who are seeking their first homes.
Transitional design combines curved furnishings with straight-edged, lacquered finishes, which turns a room into equal parts masculine and feminine, yin and yang if you will. It’s not a cluttered, disjointed disaster; on the contrary, it’s subtly ornamented with accessories, clean edges surrounded by an added texture that utilizes neutral colors such as earth tones, blacks, and silvers.
There is a method to the madness with transitional design. Let’s see how we can make seemingly opposite styles work in harmony.
How Do You Create A Transitional Style Kitchen?
Good transitional design is accomplished by seamlessly blending a mix of contemporary and classical. While there are many versions of this style, here’s a list that will help you produce a fetching transitional look.
- Go neutral with your colors; allow the kitchen furniture lines to be the center of attention.
- Use textures like wood, lacquer, rattan, glass, fabric, and metals.
- Don’t go overboard with accessories; remember you add artistic touches via a mix of furnishings and fabrics; too much can clash and look cluttered.
- Kitchens are already traditional. Add additional elements to create a clean, contemporary look using specific accessories like lighting, islands, and specialty countertops.
