The transitional kitchens are one of our favorite design to explore – it offers a great variety of textural and materials combinations and includes dynamic mixture of vintage, classic and contemporary design elements. The great variety of artistic expressions and combinations offers to the designer’s freedom of expression that incorporates elements from both traditional and modern design – a trend that is just picking up speed. You can have a rustic kitchen in your trendy city apartment or an urban design with natural and cozy features. In the past few years, transitional was an important design style for kitchens; we expect to see transitional kitchens remaining popular.
The other tendency this season are the opposite design methods – using high-tech innovations of materials and surfaces the designers create large and massive volumes with shining surfaces and simple shapes. Here we can also observe the presence of wooden elements, but in those cases, they are used more as additions and artistic details not as a leading material selection. Dark colors and contrast are also eminent. The kitchen designs by Mina and bulthaup are a wonderful representation of this trend.
