Transitional style is coming into its own as a favorite kitchen design. In a 2017 survey by the National Kitchen and Bath Association, transitional design moved into the No. 1 spot for the first time, edging out the long-time champ, traditional.
The reason? Transitional style has universal appeal — it takes a trend-defying approach to design that’s cozy, elegant, and ensures a great return on your investment.
It's also hard to define.
New transitional cabinetry designs are modular in shape but can be dressed out any way you prefer, blending modern innovation with classic design. Because it may be difficult to pin down a definition, this style is said to be transitioning, on the move or going somewhere. People are often reminded of something familiar when they see it, but they can't quite place it.
Transitional designs are a way to break away from traditional design style rules. One way to achieve the desired outcome is to combine finishes. You can have an all-white kitchen, for example, but mix the finishes and details. Or mix components from different eras, such as hardware, moldings and cabinet doors.
It takes a bit more creativity and adventure to create your own transitional style, and our designers can help you achieve your solution!
