Transitional Kitchen Design Idea

Kitchen is that perennial source from where the tradition passes on from the ancestors to the new generations in the form of traditional cuisines. It's where you try to master those piquant grandma's recipes and try out some continental dishes to impress your family. Now where would you place such a spot of the house which sways from this age to that, every now and then. Why not paint it in a style that portrays it as the face of timeless tradition and ever evolving contemporary style. Well,  you can name it Transitional – a concept that blurs the fine line between traditional and modern style.

Here are a few kitchens that have made themselves 'timeless' with their transitional style, just for you.

The kitchen is evidently transitional. The kitchen island which  also has an eat -in dining table and floor length cupboards bring in the colour of age old traditional design whereas  the sleek black chairs standing on clean white tiled floors speaks out the modernity the kitchen is in love with.
As is the norm of transitional interior designing, the colours used are mostly muted except the rich brown, which helps in giving a harmonious look.

The kitchen with its neutral colour inclines to the contemporary era whereas the criss cross designs and patterns on the furniture makes it an ancient affair.  The stone tile floors and the majestic legs of the island top too contribute to keep the kitchen in the transitional stage.

Transitional designing likes to stay away from fanciful decorations and flashy colours. Utility at the easiest and comfortable line is what it strives to achieve. It is not the vibrant contrasting colours done in overdose that makes a room brighter. It's the fineness in the simple patterns that makes it extraordinary.

Here the old school wall/cabinet trims and the mission style kitchen island blend with the plush modern stools that together render a pacifying look to the kitchen.

The fiery golden vintage pendant lights give a punch to the overall accent of the kitchen.

It feels good when no element in a room looks out of place. 

Even with difference in the shades, the kitchen above comes out as one unit. The kitchen island definitely serves as the focal point with the raw unclad walls that are so perfect with its unfinished look. To give a warm, inviting look to the kitchen, (which is often the place for entertainment apart from the routine cooking session), yellow lights have been used. While the lustrous electronic gadgets make it a modern cook house, they do not overpower the simpler beauties in the vintage stools placed by the island.

The walls flaunt the unfinished exposed walls making clean concrete place for the crockery. The floors too done in unpolished wood gives a traditional base to the stunning marble finished kitchen island that is cleverly turned into a banquet seating on the other side.

The interesting part of transitional designing is that it is one of the most flexible styles to go with. There is hardly any constraint on your way of styling. Go eclectic with making place for new material on old furniture. Do not hesitate to mix it up as the things you will probably find will be of this age or the age gone by – and that 's exactly what transitional is all about.
