KITCHEN TRENDS

  1. TRANSITIONAL KITCHEN

The transitional kitchen is an eclectic mix of the old and new, screaming of its traditional roots. It is a beautiful blend of conventional and contemporary design elements – glass doors and concrete panels of the present are combined with earth materials, like marbles or wood. Nature is a key component of the design – a simple flower pot on the countertop or a few pebbles skirting the sides.

This classic kitchen style leaves a subtle message of supremacy. Shaker styled kitchens are a notable design movement that stands by the phrase, “decorations are unnecessary”. It is a humble model of proportionate furniture and minimal design with no intricate carvings.
