2. How To Design A Transitional Kitchen- The Basics

How To Design A Transitional Kitchen- The Basics


Understanding the basic design elements of a transitional kitchen is the first step in creating your dream space. At its core, a transitional kitchen is still centered around common elements like countertops, cabinetry, and flooring. However, you can also add unique design elements to really make your kitchen stand out. Here are the very basics for designing a transitional kitchen:



1. Check Out Examples

Start by checking out some stunning examples of transitional kitchens online or in home design magazines. This will give you a good idea of what elements commonly go into the design, and can help you start thinking about how to incorporate these things into your own kitchen.



2. Function and Aesthetics

Function and Aesthetics


Choose the style of your cabinets and countertops based on both function and aesthetics. For example, if you want a modern feel, you might opt for sleek, high-gloss cabinets, while a more traditional kitchen may benefit from painted wood cabinetry or marble countertops.



3. Cohesive and Balanced

Cohesive and Balanced


Add unique accent pieces to your kitchen design, such as textured tiles or creative lighting fixtures, that reflect your personality and help your kitchen stand out from the crowd. However, it's also important to choose these elements in a way that keeps your design cohesive and balanced.



4. Color Scheme

Color picking is a must in any design. Make sure you choose the right colors for your new space to help create the mood that you want for your kitchen. There is no right or wrong when it comes to color, so make sure you experiment with different shades and tones to find something that truly speaks to you. Get Trendy With These Kitchen Color Schemes will help you get a head start in choosing your perfect color palette.



5. Streamlined Appliances

Appliances for transitional kitchens are often more streamlined and less flashy than those found in modern kitchens. This is because transitional designs tend to be more neutral, and so the focus is on the overall design rather than individual pieces. Think of your appliances as the supporting cast of your kitchen design, not the star.

3. Update Your Current Space To A Transitional Style Kitchen

Update Your Current Space To A Transitional Style Kitchen


Over time, kitchens can get worn down and outdated, leading to a less-than-ideal space for cooking and entertaining. If this sounds familiar, it may be time to consider an update to a transitional-style kitchen. The ageless and classic style it offers is perfect for those who want to update their kitchen without losing the character and beauty of a traditional design.


Your kitchen may currently have a dated look, but there are some easy ways to update it and achieve a transitional style:


1. Stainless steel appliances

Stainless steel appliances


Paneled appliances are the hallmark of transitional kitchens, as they are sleek and modern while also maintaining a classic feel. If your current appliances are made of outdated materials, consider replacing them with stainless steel versions to achieve a more modern look.



2. Exposed wooden beams

Bothered by the exposed wood beams in your kitchen? Try painting them to match the rest of your walls, or simply leave them exposed as a fun element of your transitional design.

Create a transitional kitchen style with your old paneled-style doors by updating them with a coat of paint or adding decorative window treatments. Shaker cabinets are also a popular choice for transitional designs, as they can be paired with more modern features to achieve the perfect balance.

4. Creative lighting fixtures

Creative lighting fixtures


Substantial light fixtures that add visual interest to your kitchen are a must for any transitional design. If your dated kitchen lighting isn't working for you, consider investing in some more creative and modern lighting fixtures to create a standout look in your space.



5. Countertops



Traditional styles feature countertops that are made of natural materials like wood or stone that showcase the old-world craftsmanship of the space. If your current countertops are feeling a bit outdated, consider upgrading to something that is more in line with the transitional aesthetic.

Transitional style kitchens display a mix of styles, and countertops are no exception. Whether you opt for newer quartz or white marble countertops or keep your older laminate surfaces, your kitchen can look more modern and fresh with a simple upgrade.



6. Color Palette

Traditional kitchens tend to have a neutral color palette with soothing tones of brown, cream, and gray. Wood tones are incorporated especially in the cabinetry. To achieve the transitional style aesthetic, experiment with different colors and shades to find the perfect palette for your kitchen space. Consider adding pops of color through your accessories, wall art, and decorative tiles.



7. Backsplash



White backsplash tiles are a staple of the transitional style kitchen, and they are ideal for those who want to achieve a clean and classic look in their space. However, if you're looking for something a bit more creative and out-of-the-box, consider choosing tiles in varying shades of the same color or opting for a patterned backsplash that complements your wooden cabinetry.



These are just a few ways to update your traditional kitchen style into something that is more transitional without losing the beautiful character of your space. Whether you're looking to make a few simple updates or overhaul the entire kitchen, these tips can help you create the perfect transitional design that is both functional and beautiful.
