Transitional open-plan kitchen + dining area in white and gray

Alex Jolea Author

The dance of Modern and mostly Traditional in this open-plan interior beautifully integrates the familiar-looking wood kitchen and dining space with a Rustic appeal, both underlined by a Modern splash of gray and white. The classic white walls and natural wood flooring, alongside the accent fireplace, enhance comfort, while the functional layout and sleek traces of elegance add contemporary individuality.

The spacious interior that successfully integrates the kitchen and dining area and manages to preserve the balance between Modern and Traditional, gravitating slightly towards the latter, makes the most of Transitional approaches. 

The classic white background sets a familiar vibe right from the start, backed up by the wood flooring. Still, the relatively functional layout leaves lots of free space that fills the interior with freshness, particularly when the full-length windows and sliding door of glass enrich the space with appropriate natural light.

Switching to the cooking area, one can notice that it radiates texture to the fullest with the wood kitchen cabinets. The rich wood grain reveals a slight contemporary feel once gray decides to accompany it, inviting the white countertop as well. The latter resonates with the crispiness reflected by the intricately designed backsplash with white hexagonal tiles. The combination of white and gray may seem Modern, but the exposed dishes by the upper cabinet glass doors is definitely a solution from the good old times.

The main focus in the room is played by the dining area that effortlessly incorporates the irreplaceable Rustic dining table of wood in classy black and brown, while the Transitional tufted chairs dilute the area with their elegant design underlined by light beige. The patchwork area rug in gray and taupe keeps everything together by its impressive ability to gravitate from one style to another.

There is still one piece that draws the eye, and it is undoubtedly the fireplace that creates the cottage feel for a close-to-the-heart environment. The last but not least piece that completes the intricate puzzle of design solutions is the eye-catching crystal chandelier that throws elegant light on the interior, keeping pace with its functional counterparts – spot lighting sources. Together, they brighten the space practically and stylishly.
