Transitional Kitchen Design Style
A transitional project blends traditional and contemporary kitchen design styles together. The cabinet doors typically have minimal moulding. Our best-selling Shaker cabinets are an excellent example of this! Crown moulding, if present, has simple clean lines. The colour palette of a transitional kitchen is often neutral. Most of the kitchens in our inspiration gallery are transitional kitchens, as this is the most popular style of kitchen. The kitchen below is an example of a transitional kitchen. It has Shaker style doors and very plain moulding. You can also see more transitional kitchens in our Facebook album.

Traditional, contemporary, and transitional are the primary kitchen design styles. They can be further sub-divided into more specific styles. Use the descriptions below to look for photos on Pinterest. Build a board with your favourite photos and bring it to your design consultation!
- Farmhouse. Inspired by rural farmhouses, these kitchens emphasize warmth and comfort. They typically feature open shelving, apron-front sinks, rustic wood elements, and a mix of vintage and modern accents. Neutral color schemes with pops of color are prevalent.
- Industrial. Drawing inspiration from industrial spaces, industrial kitchens showcase raw materials like exposed brick, steel, and concrete. Open spaces, high ceilings, and a utilitarian aesthetic with features like metal appliances and pendant lighting define this style.
- Cottage. Cozy and charming, cottage-style kitchens often incorporate soft colors, beadboard paneling, and vintage-inspired elements. Open shelving, floral patterns, and a mix of finishes contribute to a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.
- Nautical. Influenced by coastal living, these kitchens often feature a palette of blues and whites, natural materials like wood and rattan, and maritime-inspired decor such as nautical lighting and accessories. Light and airy with a relaxed vibe, coastal kitchens bring the outdoors in.
- Mediterranean. Rich colors, ornate details, and warm textures define Mediterranean kitchens. Terra cotta tiles, wrought iron, and patterned tiles contribute to the Mediterranean aesthetic. Earthy tones, arches, and decorative elements are common.
