Transitional kitchen is a unique blend of traditional and contemporary furniture, finishes, materials and fabric – all of which equate to a classic, timeless design. This hugely popular aesthetic is ideal for those of us who revere an enduring look – and those who want to remodel once, and once only.

Transitional Lighting and Flooring

Pendant lighting is the most noteworthy decor element in transitional kitchens. You’ll see a lot of industrial and oversize pendants that lean more modern, but this kitchen proves there’s a place for the traditional, too. The dark, slim lines of the open shelving mimic the delicate cages of the traditional lantern pendants above the island. So neither item feels out of place, the curves of the light fixtures are reflected in the kitchen’s elegant faucets, and the crisp lines of the shelving are repeated on island seating.

Plank-style flooring is also common in transitional kitchens, specifically wood and wood-look flooring. Dark or light, the rich hues bring traditional warmth to the space. A simple wood accent draws the eye to the range area without overshadowing the rest of the room.

Transitional Kitchen Finishes

Modern transitional kitchen ideas include black and brass finishes. In this space, the painted window sash, kitchen faucet, appliances, and tile grout incorporate the same dark elements so that none of them look out of place.

Similarly, with small pulls instead of oversize cabinet hardware, a brass finish stands while keeping a low profile. Geometric tiles are a contemporary idea that mimics the overall crisp lines of transitional style. If used in small doses, dark grout lines add interest without becoming too busy. However, if using geometric tiles on a bigger surface area or in a small kitchen, choose a grout color closer to the tile to minimize the pattern.

Characteristics of Transitional Style

1. Combination of classic curves and modern lines – transitional style interior design is a combination of modern lines and classic curves in a neutral setting. However, it’s not to be thought of as lacking in color as accessories are featured to bring in life while the focus is kept on a minimal, neutral palette.

2. Comfortable furnishings and soft lines – transitional decorating style embraces soft lines and comfortable furnishings, yet, it does not come with fussy styling. The color palette used is somewhat similar to the contemporary design and is usually kept to a minimum.

3. Elegant and timeless design motifs – transitional style boasts an elegant and timeless look that combines the old with new, and feminine with masculine – in a fresh way.

4. Solids remain low-key – in a transitional space, solids are often featured while patterns are mostly subtle.
