There’s something special about those white-on-white kitchens. They’re absolutely everywhere! Most of these adored white cabinet kitchens feature a transitional design, which is a combination of both traditional and modern elements. In fact, the National Kitchen+Bath Association just named transitional as America’s most popular design. Keep reading for the three reasons why this style of transitional white kitchen cabinets is so easy to love!
Transitional is cozy and warm
Contemporary kitchen styles can seem a bit unfriendly for some homeowners… the sharp lines and cold aesthetic can leave you wanting more warmth in the design. Since transitional meets in the middle, traditional cabinetry is complemented by a simple, unfussy design. Take a look at the attached image: a white color palette and stainless steel appliances are warmed up through framed glass-panel cabinet doors pulling together a stunning design. In summary, transitional brings the right balance to your kitchen!
Transitional kitchen designs, very literally, have the best of both worlds! The design mixes elements whether it’s combining natural and manmade or hardware options and a cabinet design from different eras. The attached image does this well by balancing granite countertops and wood flooring with stainless steel and glass.
Transitional white kitchen cabinets fare well with both neutrals and pops of color
The popularity of transitional white kitchen cabinets is also likely due their versatility. Combine them with a neutral color palette or a kitchen complemented by color, and transitional kitchen designs fare well in both. However, a natural color palette, is by far the most popular kitchen color at the moment, but don’t let that hold you back from adding pops of color!
