At Let’s Face It, one of our kitchen remodeling projects included a transitional kitchen in Bucks County. With this unique style we combined a sleek polished black granite countertop with a unique backsplash.
A transitional kitchen is a versatile design that lets you blend old and new elements, while adding some playfulness to the design. In a recent survey by the National Kitchen and Bath Association, transitional design moved into the number one spot for the first time.
The main idea in a transitional kitchen design is bringing together classic details but with updated assets. In our transitional kitchen in Bucks County we installed a custom bi-level island with classic white cabinetry with modern multi-colored glass subway pattern backsplash. The subway style tile is also seen repeated to full height on the back wall of the kitchen.
With this type of design, you can combine elements such as neutrals with modern bright colors. It’s a perfect choice for those homeowners who have always stuck with a traditional look but want to introduce some fresh new elements into their home. Other essentials of a transitional kitchen design include: cabinets with a natural wood finish, marbles, stainless steel and built-in appliances.
Many transitionally designed kitchens feature a classic white and black look. We used white cabinetry along with a black ash granite countertop in our Bucks County transitional kitchen. It also featured side and rear wainscot paneling and a nice wood baseboard detail.
As this style of design continues to evolve, professional designers continue to experiment with the different ways they can utilize it. At LFI Kitchens, we find this style of design an easy way for homeowners to transition a classic look they’ve had for years without taking too much risk.
