Going with bold patterned flooring in a kitchen is one way to incorporate drama, movement and yet another layer of customization to create a truly unique space. Be sure to select a pattern that you connect with naturally.
Using two-tone cabinetry can work just as well in a traditional transitional kitchen as it does in a more contemporary/modern space. I love using two different paint colors as well as using one paint color and a more natural-looking wood together.
Mixed materials and finishes on everything from cabinets to hardware and fixtures has become popular as well as cabinetry with open shelving and even sliding doors. Appliances in a variety of colors are also trending.
