A transitional kitchen design combines traditional, contemporary and modern styles, mixing natural and man made materials. Create a flexible kitchen style from the warmth of traditional elements to the sleek, minimalistic detailing of a modern kitchen. Close the gap between modern and traditional kitchen designs with these tips.
Add a Contemporary Twist to a Classic Style
A transitional kitchen doesn’t always have to have a perfect portion of contemporary and traditional. If you prefer a classic kitchen style, add touches of modern detailing and aesthetic elements, or the other way around. Mix fresh combinations of splashback, colours and flooring options with traditional cabinet designs for a classically modern style.
Combine Natural and Manufactured Materials
Mixing organic and man-made materials is the foundation of a transitional design. A transitional kitchen often features wood, steel, glass, marble or stone materials in the same areas. A balanced blend of natural wooden textures and man-made materials with minimal décor will help balance the design from traditional to modern. It will also help to create a comfortable and relaxing area without going overboard in complex designs. Wooden bar stools or flooring will add an interesting depth and texture to your space.
Try a Neutral Colour Palette
Keeping to a neutral palette when designing your transitional kitchen can create a sophisticated and sleek look, paired with classic elements. Explore many textures, from polished tile surfaces for your kitchen splashback to stone kitchen bench tops to add visual interest. Layer neutral colours in various shades for a monochrome feel while still incorporating the warmth of a traditional kitchen.
By considering these simple features when designing or renovating your kitchen, you can encompass the transitional kitchen style of a combination of old and new design.
