Kitchen & Bath Trends: Transitional Kitchens
Transitional kitchens are taking over, as they merge a traditional look with a contemporary feel. This includes simpler details such as a streamlined backsplash and unadorned cabinet doors. It also pulls on classical features such as coffered ceilings, while modernizing them with larger points of interest like the granite and paint colors.
Streamlined backsplashes keep a cleaner look, pushing towards the modern look while still having a foot in the traditional realm.
Unadorned Cabinet Doors
Sleek, clean, and streamlined are three markers of a transitional kitchen. Keeping the cabinets streamlined continues this trend, while allowing you to add some ornate details such as pull handles.
Coffered Ceilings with Modernized Color Selections
Coffered ceilings are a great way of tying in a traditional home with more modern features. Adding a splash of color and decorative beams are a great way to bring in the transitional look.
Trend Bonus: Sitting at the Island
Not specific to Transitional kitchens, sitting at the island has become the newer preferred family area. As families are seeking to be closer to each other in proximity, this gives them the closeness they desire while still giving the cook space to prepare meals and interact at the same time.
