Go With a Neutral Base

Beige, cream, peach, and white are among the first things that come to mind when you think about neutral colors. However, these light colors are not your only option. Shades of gray and brown will give your kitchen a fresher and more modern look. They will also add warmth and give your space a more striking appearance. You can add pops of color to your kitchen through wood tones and even vibrant colors like blue. 

Storage Is Key 

Increasing storage should be on your kitchen renovation checklist if you wish to create a transitional space. Kitchens in this style are known for eliminating clutter through cabinets. Painted wood and wood-grain cabinetry are popular options. They feature recessed panel doors resembling Shaker cabinets. 

Appliances That Blend In 

Appliances in transitional kitchens are usually in stainless steel. Paneling appliances will add more visual appeal to your space. Typically, range hoods or covered or built-in, so they better blend in with the cabinets. 

Wood Flooring 

Wood flooring and options resembling the look of natural wood are a must in transitional spaces. Whether you prefer a dark or light finish, wood will give your kitchen a warmer and more inviting feel. It will add more depth to the room without stealing the show from other elements.

Efficient Lighting Design 

In many homes, the kitchen isn’t just a place where you prepare and cook meals. It can also serve as a place to entertain guests, eat with your family and even do homework with your kids. With a good lighting design, you can ensure the safety and comfort of the room. 

The lights you will install will also affect your kitchen’s atmosphere and help make it look larger. Task lighting for efficient meal preparation and cooking is essential in a transitional kitchen. Atmospheric lighting will accentuate your space’s architectural features and give it a homier feel.
