If you're considering home design ideas for an upcoming remodel, or if you're tinkering with the idea of building a home from the ground up, we at Country Club Homes, Inc. think you should consider a transitional style when it comes to your new kitchen. Whether you're a gourmet chef or not, there are lots of ways to seamlessly blend a traditional style with a fresh clean look.
What really makes a kitchen have a wow factor is the careful attention to detail. A transitional look combines the warmth of traditional detailing with more contemporary clean lines. Think through some of these details?
- Exposed metal hinges and interesting knobs and pulls in nickel, bronze or antique brass
- Rich wood finishes that may or may not be distressed
- A mix of cabinets that have different finishes to add interest and warmth
- Cabinets with decorative door inserts such as wire mesh or caning
- Details can make or break a great kitchen, and sometimes less is more
- Complementary countertops such as limestone and bamboo or granite and butcher block
- Consider alternatives to granite countertops such as quartz, limestone, concrete and zinc
- Interesting backsplashes with niches and/or clean patterns
- Hidden refrigerators and/or other appliances
- And, don't forget lighting - it can make or break a "wow" kitchen!
