Lighter cabinet finishes, countertop colors and tile backsplash, along with a simple cabinet door style brings the transitional design style to life!

What’s not to love about transitional kitchen design?

Besides being the most widely spec’d style by kitchen designers according to the National Kitchen & Bath Association, transitional gives what many of us are always on the look for – balance. By matching up the sparse minimalism of modern design with the warm, detailed look of traditional design, transitional’s clean, uncluttered look comes together near seamlessly without feeling or looking dated.

What does this mean for you if you are considering Transitional Design style? No fancy applied crown moldings, furniture like accessories, high gloss finishes, contemporary curved doors and darker granite pattern and colors. Instead, welcome flat and recessed panel doors, straight lines and angles, full overlay doors that conceal cabinet face frames, shades of grays and whites, and subtler tones and patterns of engineered stone and quartz.

With Transitional Design, the general rule is that less is more. And that makes it a very popular design choice!
