Transitional kitchens have become more popular in recent years, especially 2019. According to the National Kitchen & Bath Association, 65% of kitchen designs in the past year were transitional.
But what is ‘transitional’, what makes this kitchen design so popular, and how would it fit into your home?
What is Transitional Kitchen Design?
Transitional kitchen designs are usually hybrid kitchens. This means they borrow elements or influences from past styles and blend them with modern features to create something unique and different. The advantage of this is that you can get the best of both worlds when it comes to kitchen design, achieving a kitchen that truly reflects who you are and how you live.
To help you understand more about what a transitional kitchen is and how it differs from your typical design, we have provided more information below.
Mix of Natural and Manufactured Materials
A transitional kitchen will often feature wood, steel, glass, stone, or marble, all in the same space. In these kitchens, you will often see wooden cabinets, concrete walls, marble, and stainless steel working together to create a harmonious ensemble. Additionally, for properties that have a historical appearance, a transitional kitchen can help you retain the traditional look, whilst providing modern comfort in your kitchen at the same time.
This theme really enhances your kitchen, and the use of a blend of materials enhances the creative kitchen design. Granite, marble, and other natural countertop and flooring materials are extremely flexible as they can match both traditional and contemporary designs. They of course work very well in kitchens as they are hard-wearing and hygienic materials.
Neutral Colour Palette
Transitional kitchens typically feature textural elements that add visual spark due to their neutral colour palette. Many of these elements have a neutral palette of whites, beiges, and greys, which work wonderfully with traditional and modern design elements. You can combine these neutral elements with colourful details such as a bold backsplash. This creates contrast and breaks up any monotony in the kitchen.
Traditional & Modern
For homeowners that are finding it difficult to choose between a traditional or modern kitchen design, a transitional kitchen provides a perfect blend of both. An advantage of this kitchen style is that it suits all types of houses whether it’s a traditional or new property. By combining classic and contemporary, you get to choose which characteristics your kitchen will inherit.
