Using the simplicity of contemporary style, and the charm of traditional décor, the transitional style can be achieved. Due to this style’s ability to appeal to both traditional and contemporary tastes, it is a great choice for every generation and it’s the all time favorite design.
The Hive Effect
The Blending of classic industrial decor with a modern twist, The Hive Effect skimps on color, but not style. The black and white honeycomb pattern floor accent continues up to the wall seamlessly blending both parts of the room together. The purity and cleanliness of bare wood on the industrial stools, countertop, and modern kitchen cabinets offer a beautiful respite from the otherwise black and white scene while the wood-disk light fixtures meld with the other furnishings. Ample storage space above the seating area provides an out-of-the-way solution for glassware without sacrificing cabinet space. What the space lacks in color variety, it makes up for in design features.
Contrasting two or more cabinet colors can create a highly unique look in any kitchen. There are endless possibilities, it’s all depends on designers creative abilities.

The Colorful appliances are one of 2017’s most exciting kitchen trends. There are so many options, and the possibilities are endless. Adding bright pops of color is a great way to liven up any kitchen décor.

Rose Gold Design
Rose gold (or copper color) is a beautiful alternative finish for both large and small appliances. This trend also ties into the metallic finish trend.
Choose Bold Fixtures
Bold color isn’t the only way to create excitement, they give a great sense of depth perception and create drama in a room with a typical low ceiling. The luxurious cabinets are Oak Veneer with a rich near-black stain.
The Trendy & Ultra Modern
The clean, smooth white surface of this trendy & ultra modern kitchen design are offset by the dark amber butterfly-style light fixtures. A modern kitchen island of Corian in a polygonal shape offers a unique divergence from block-shaped islands most kitchens host and an attached built-in dining top provides efficient use of the space. While the backsplash material appears to be a window, it is actually toughened glass spray painted a dark, jet black. This helps to elongate the room in an otherwise narrow space. Built-in storage in both the island and back wall provide more than adequate storage while remaining hidden from clear view.
The Chocolate and Marble design look
This contemporary modern kitchen design with sweet chocolate brown of the modern kitchen cabinets makes a stark contrast to the slick frosting texture of the marble countertops and backsplash. The cork-like coloring and grain of the bar stools atop cast iron footings accent the space and add a touch of rawness. Thin silver and glass pendant lights present a sleek line in an otherwise broad space. Large plate-glass windows allow the perfect amount of light in to accent the space and highlight its openness.
Sleek Handleless units
The overall linear look is proving very popular in today’s ultra modern kitchen, and we will continue to see more plain and handleless doors for a simple yet modern style, predominantly in gloss finishes and in grey or neutral earthy hues. The traditional grained timber and timber effects sector in natural tones will also become more popular thanks to the increase in painted colour options, and this will only continue to grow as homeowner’s desire a look that is both sleek and flexible.
The Ultra Modern Energy Kitchen Design
The bright energy of yellow at two points in this design, a jet black wall holds cabinetry with a black veneer finish and black countertops. This wall is broken up with a brilliant yellow accent area. The kitchen island features this same yellow highlight in a dining area built into its side. Both yellow features are painted with a high gloss paint to raise the energy level even more. Beautiful creamy marble floor tiles lend a nice contrast to the dark cabinets and bright highlight pieces. The design is an excellent example of the use of two contrasting intensity levels in one space and it oozes energy.
High quality storage solutions
Designers still currently prefer to hide small kitchen appliances, therefore food processors and kettles will find homes in tall larders, as will a preference towards deep drawers and intelligent high quality storage solutions. Both style and practicality will be increasingly present as kitchen designers look to create the wow factor.
The Modern Wood Design
The elegance of light wood in this space combined with the dark island counter and the creamy lightness of the countertop and backsplash make a striking combination. Keeping the wood surfaces unpainted allows the perfect grain of the wood to shine on its own in the cabinets and island face. On its own, the wood surface could be from any era of design, but the modern countertops and stainless steel appliances bring the look to the modern era. Ultra-modern bar stools and artful pendant lights fully accessorize the room and ensure a contemporary style.
