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.
For cabinetry, homeowners are favoring customized colors that perfectly fit their kitchen spaces. Neutral colors are currently big favorites with tones like grey, yellow and soft greens but don’t count out the darker color pallet. Black, navy, and emerald green has the high-end allure many desire.
Here is where you might find similar-colored utensils that create a more uniform look. You can also use wine bottles, mason jars, and fruit bowls as decorative elements. If you have a favorite coffee mug or special recipe books, use them to make the shelving more interesting.
Do you want a rustic theme, but doesn’t want to go with dark wood colors? The farmhouse pastel green is a dreamy version of farm life. It’s a good marriage between shabby chic, rustic, and modern feels.
Oak wood cabinetry is starting to creep back into the kitchen and bathroom marketplace with Cerused and driftwood finishes. In the 1970’s well into the early 90’s, they were the cabinet of choice. Usually seen in a honey spice stain, a version of a raised panel cathedral door with wild grain patterns became the mainstay in many homes at that time. After a much-needed departure, the popularity of maple, cherry and a rise of engineered wood alternatives reduced the use of oak cabinet constructions. Materials like wood veneer and painted MDF are now more common in cabinet door construction than ever. But as with other parts of the house, many homeowners are seeking connections to their past and a renewed attention to vintage, with kitchens being no different.
By choosing the right kitchen cabinet colors, you can give back life to your old kitchen without spending a fortune on renovations.
