Marc tours a kitchen by Bertino Kitchens and shares tips for creating the perfect kitchen in your own home.

If you’re aiming for a kitchen design that will stand the test of time, a transitional kitchen might best suit your needs. A transitional kitchen is a integration of both contemporary and traditional kitchen styles; combining the best of both worlds for a look that is truly versatile. Here are a few elements of transitional kitchen design that we love:

A Timeless Countertop

Think: Quartz, such as a Caesarstone product, soapstone, or slate. (Fun fact: soapstone and slate are literally timeless and have been used as work surfaces for centuries.) If you chose to go with a quartz or granite countertop, stick to dark, neutral finishes, which will wear better and are less likely to go out of style.  

A Purpose-driven Sink

Though farmhouse sinks, and similar large basin designs, are indeed trendy right now, a large sink is a trend that you’ll be happy you observed for practical reasons. Not only will you love the roominess of a large, deep basin sink, so will prospective buyers. 

A Beautiful Range Hood 

Statement-making range hoods are rather trendy right now – and for good reason! Not only do they look great, but they serve a pretty important purpose! 

Ample Storage

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: you can never really have enough storage. Further, storage never goes out of style, so ensure you are taking advantage of every square inch of your kitchen with creative storage solutions, such as corning cabinetry, an extendable pantry, opening shelving, or hidden storage within your kitchen island.
