Transitional White Kitchen With Pops of Color

This transitional kitchen features a glass and marble backsplash, quartz composite counter and traditional hardware. To keep the home as original as possible, the cabinets were painted a clean white. Foot-friendly cork covers the floor and vintage paintings hang above the sink.

Transitional Kitchen Uses Soft Neutral Color Palette

This transitional townhouse in Cherry Creek, Colo. uses soft browns and creams to create an elegant, flowing design. A window seat is paired with traditional tables and pendant lights for a casual eating spot, while the kitchen island provides another dining area. Cream upper cabinets contrast against the mocha cabinets, while a brass chandelier adds a touch of glam.

Glam Kitchen With Unlikely Color Combo

The glossy finish of the backsplash elevates its deep brown hue to new heights. Paired with crisp white cabinetry and countertops, the color is dramatic and elegant.

Lively Tone

Designer James Howard turned a small, cramped kitchen into a sleek and pleasing space by adding an earth-toned splash of color. The tan and cream backsplash complements the light cabinetry while adding an additional element of warmth. Both under-cabinet lighting and recessed lighting reflect off the backsplash and cabinetry, creating a vibrant and lively kitchen.

White Transitional Kitchen With Black Pendants

To give this kitchen the charm and personality it lacked, designers switched out existing appliances for retro-looking ones from Big Chill. More farmhouse character comes from the sink and pretty cabinet cutouts. Brass accents layer warmth into the sunny, bright room.

Floor-to-Ceiling Color

Designer Ken Kelly didn't leave out a single detail when creating this kitchen masterpiece. The ceiling's peacock feather detail draws in the room's hues, from the colorful tile flooring to the eclectic backsplash and bold blue walls.

Open Concept Transitional Kitchen

Vaulted ceilings give an open, airy feel to this neutral transitional kitchen. A peacock blue kitchen island serves as the statement piece. Silver barstools with leather seats contrast with the light colored walls and cabinets.
