Transitional design looks to fuse both contemporary and traditional design styles for kitchens and bathrooms, combining the clean, sleek lines of contemporary with the style and history of traditional design. Not too much of either, transitional kitchens and bathrooms are for those who want their style somewhere in between. By combining styles of past and present, you create a defining style for your kitchen or bathroom.
 

 

Eclectic in nature, one of the best parts of transitional design is the freedom it affords when designing a kitchen or bathroom. Molding and trim do exist, but are simple with some ornamentation.

Other suggestions for creating a transitional design style in your kitchen or bathroom include lightening the overall color palette or showcasing appliances instead of hiding them behind wood panels.
