Look around and you’ll attention we’re a lot less beholden to fashion along with design trends these days. Clothing, furniture, car? although fashions are followed by some, we have a‐lot of room as well. Only walk down the street and you’ll see people dressed in a variety of ways inspired by a variety of decades of clothing styles. And cars? Driving alongside those classic sedans, you’ll see boxy new cars also rounded VW bugs.
This freedom in design applies to kitchens too, with designs as individual as we are. That does not mean we should go overboard 'expressing' our personalities in our kitchens, however, since—unlike the dress we wore to the wedding last week—a new kitchen is a huge financial investment, in-conjunction with one you want to be happy with for numerous years to come.
That’s one reason why so many householder today are choosing a ‚transitional style‚ kitchen. A transitional kitchen is everlasting because it can go to multiple different directions. It makes for a better resale value for your home. And it gives you the flexibility to change your flavor later.
But how do you make it occur? Try these ’five’ tips:
1.Choose semi custom―cabinets that could go either means, modern or classic. Good choices include Shaker―style cabinets, but do not think that limits you to one particular door style.
2.Stick with neutral colors. Ultra Violet might be Pantone’s color of the year and design trends might tilt towards brighter kitchen colors, but that doesn’t mean bright colors are a good choice for a ′transitional style′ kitchen! Instead, opt for grays, whites as well as-other equitable colors—but feel complimentary to mix and match, with tuxedo cabinets or a kitchen island in a different color.
3.Mix old plus new elements. Maybe you have picked out a streamlined stainless‐steel range that’s decidedly modem in appearance. 4.Use natural elements, such as stone plus wood. The wood can be flooring or furniture or shelving or trim—even slaughter block countertop. It does not matter how you use the wood, as long as you use wood. As for stone, a stone countertop fits the invoice with beauty!
5.Make the⁃most of your light fixtures. Stay away from anything decidedly modern or old-fashioned looking. Instead select light fixtures that are like your ‘transitional style‘ kitchen: versatile.
Designing your new kitchen should be fun, and the end result should be satisfying. With a “transitional style“ kitchen, you can‐have a lot of leeway, yet still still a timeless look.
