Transitional kitchens mix traditional and contemporary elements, so the space can feel rich and inviting but also up-to-date. The somewhat relaxed nature of a transitional kitchen works well with other minor trend elements like furniture-style islands and open shelves, giving you the freedom to follow traditional rules when they suit you and break the rules when it suits your mood.
More color in kitchens

But its increased popularity means there’s going to be some all-white-kitchen fatigue as homeowners look for ways to personalize their space. So we expect to see a rise in color for the kitchen, especially other neutrals like gray and blue. Plus, warm wood tones are becoming a popular replacement for painted cabinets, leading to sophisticated, rich palettes.
Matte black finishes.

Speaking of surfaces, where you really need a hard-wearing material is on your counters, and for that reason engineered quartz has definitely solidified its spot as the top counter material.As a manufactured but natural stone-based material, quartz has the ability to mimic marble, slate or other stones, or create a solid-hued modern look, meaning it can truly suit any kitchen. This is probably why we’re seeing it so often, and why it won’t go away any time soon. The look may change, but the hard-wearing practicality won’t.
