Transitional style is the easiest way to avoid dating your kitchen. Due to its flexibility and diversity, a transitionally styled kitchen can go in many different directions – all of them convincingly while transcending the hands of time. Using straighter lines in the cabinetry and adding the right embellishments accomplishes this. Furthermore, you can delve a little deeper into any one style through:
- Color choices
- Hardware options
- Flooring materials
- Architectural accents
The transitional kitchen has the “chameleon factor” going for it. Whether you’re into slick and modern or embellished traditional, the appeal of the transitional style is that its neutrality works with every taste, every time. Regardless if you love French provincial or are into the arts and crafts movement, transitional design bridges the gap and clearly shows how you can satisfy your personal taste without sacrificing the details of your design.

In the second half of the 20th century contemporary design emerged, rounding out modern design’s sharper edges and putting a softer light on furnishings and accessories.
