Although there is a difference between modern and contemporary designs, most people get the two confused when they’re trying to furnish a room in their homes. Fortunately, you can make up for any purchase errors by designing your home in a transitional style. Transitional home designs are a marriage of contemporary and modern styles, which is reflected in these kitchen design ideas.

Transitional Design Ideas

Even though you may not be familiar with the term, transitional kitchen designs are not unusual. In fact, in a recent survey of over 1.78 million kitchens, over 16%, or 292,325 of them had transitional designs. While many contemporary kitchens utilize natural materials, such as wood, brick, and stone, modern kitchen designs often use man-made materials.

Modern designs center around the 1920s to 1950s so that you may find a lot of chrome and glass in transitional kitchens. Also, art deco designs were popular in the 1920s to the late 1930s so that you may find cabinets and islands with rounded ends, the use of rich colors along with contemporary furnishings in a transitional kitchen as well. To get suggestions for your kitchen, check out these transitional kitchen design ideas.

Use of Color

Splashes of rich colors are often found in transitional kitchens, including colors like deep reds, gray, black, white, and yellow. However, instead of these colors dominating the kitchen, the tiles on the floor, backsplashes, or the countertops may incorporate them. Subway tiles are a popular contemporary design idea that is in many transitional kitchens, and these ceramic tiles come in a wide variety of colors, including white, yellow, and gray.

Install Contemporary Appliances

Since modern designs often incorporate man-made materials like chrome, you can install contemporary stainless steel appliances to help create that aesthetic. Most homeowners like the look of stainless steel because out of 648,146 kitchens in a recent survey, 84.3% of them had this type of appliances. Along with refrigerators and stoves, you can also install stainless steel microwaves, dishwashers, and wine refrigerators in the kitchen.

If you’re not sure whether you want a modern or contemporary kitchen design, you can select elements from both to create a transitional design. By using contemporary appliances, fixtures, and materials mixed with modern furnishings, curved lines, and rich colors, you can create a great looking transitional kitchen for your home.

Transitional kitchen design ideas usually incorporate the best of modern and contemporary designs to create a unique design aesthetic.
