Transitional styling is the “Goldilocks” zone of home décor. It`s the one true constant that can travel throughout all styles. Dabble in contemporary elements without straying too far from the warmth of traditional design. It can be the combination of natural stone-look tiles with gleaming white walls and 50`s style sofas or a match between wood wainscoting and modern leather and glass furniture. When it comes to kitchen cabinetry, transitional styling isn`t new, It`s become the mainstay. You will find a combination of differing degrees within this style from the subtle to the dramatic. Like taking Euro style wood cabinetry and placing it in a pre-war building with ornate architectural detailing on the walls & ceiling. Or combing styles, traditional shaker style doors painted white, ornate chandelier above the island, with marble countertops, and flat black hardware. It`s easy and effortless. Transitional style is perfect when you want something comfortable yet a bit interesting. If the minimalism of contemporary style appeals to you, but you still cannot leave behind the nostalgia of traditional styling–transitional kitchen cabinets are perfect for you.
Once you`ve decided on a style, you`ll need to choose your material. Cherry wood is a very high-end choice, popular for its extreme durability and an attractive natural color, which can range from deep brown to red. Maple, oak and hickory are also high-quality wood choices. Pine can be a great choice for a rustic, country kitchen look. More exotic woods like mahogany, ebony and bamboo are much higher-priced options, but they`re known for ultimate durability and a truly unique unfinished appearance.
Hardware can give you an opportunity to express your personal design style. It is an inexpensive and easy way to change the look of your cabinets. Faux finishes and brilliant paint colors can also be inexpensive ways to make a high impact on your cabinet design. Hardware, paint and glazes can all be purchased at numerous budget retailers and can be used with relative ease by you to make changes at minimal cost.
