If you are tired of seeing every kitchen out there looking very similar to the next, then transitional design might be for you.
Transitional design is not always easy to explain, but it’s certainly easy to achieve. This is a design style that allows you to ignore certain design rules and, better yet, allows you to use your own interpretation of interior design.
What makes a transitional kitchen different than most of the other kitchen styles is the fact that transitional kitchens are often full of character. You see, the more you express yourself, the more interesting interiors you will have.
When designing a transitional kitchen you should set yourself free of certain rules. Be open to mixing different elements together as long they have a connection, and don’t be afraid to blend old-charmer with trendy elements.
Using your creativity and good taste, you can transform any old boring kitchen into an exciting gathering place for family and friends.
Transitional Kitchen Design: Tips to Get the Designer Look
This kitchen has so much character and beauty! I like the color combination of the gray island, with white cabinets and creamy tan walls. A combo that at first, you might think that couldn’t work together, but it does here!
Kitchen Pendant Lighting are the “Large Hicks Pendant” from Circa Lighting.
Barstools are the “Candence Black Barstool” by Arhaus Furniture.
Kitchen Countertop Ideas
The Perimeter Countertops are 3cm Polished Ceasarstone Piatra Gray and the Island Countertop is a 3cm Polished Super White Marble.
The kitchen sink is by Kraus (KBU-14) and the faucet is the “Parq Deck-mount Polished Chrome Kitchen Bridge Faucet”.
These deep drawers are perfect to store pans.
Cooktop is the “Wolf 36″ Pro-style Gas Rangetop, Stainless Steel Natural Gas”.
Can you see yourself cooking in this kitchen? I love this large island and the sitting layout.
On the other side of the kitchen, a full-equipped bar has everything you could wish for, including a beverage fridge and dishwasher drawers (on the left).
Faucet is the “Blanco 440953 Meridian Bar Faucet”.
The hardwoods are oak.
A carefully selected hardware is always a must in any kitchen. The hardware on the island is the “Contemporary Metal Handle Pull by Richelieu”.
Every kitchen should have some interesting artwork. The crane art prints were on loan from “Westside Market Antiques & Interiors” in Atlanta.
The eating area has an industrial-chic feel. I am loving the light fixture and that incredible custom cabinet.
Light fixture is the “Contemporary Raleigh Old Silver Indoor-Outdoor Island Chandelier” from Lamp Plus. How much? $850.
Dining Chairs are the “Candence dining chair” from Arhaus Furniture.

The butler’s pantry still carries a transitional design, mixing brick walls with clean-lined white cabinets and contemporary hardware.

Kitchens are the most popular room in any house and they will always be. I feel that every kitchen should be cared with love regardless of its style. Trends come and go and I think we should try to have a kitchen that is pleasant to the eyes and practical, but before anything, we should focus on how we use our kitchen. Don’t we all have a sweet memory that happened in a kitchen? When I think about my childhood, I often think of the many times I spent in my grandmother’s kitchen, cooking with her and making breads. I can still smell her delicious homemade meals and freshly baked bread.
Spend more time in your kitchen, invite your family or friends over, laugh and create beautiful memories together. That’s what really will stay in your heart.
Have a wonderful day!
If I am wrong, right me. If I am lost, guide me. If I start to give-up, keep me going.
Lead me in Light and Love”.
Have a wonderful day, my friends and we’ll talk again tomorrow.”
