It’s not traditional, and it’s not modern. It’s transitional – a blend of traditional and modern styles with a focus on practicality and creativity. Blending elements of two distinct styles can be confusing and uncertain. No one wants to spend money on a remodel that ends up looking like a bad aftertaste. With the help of a kitchen designer, you can blend the personal style of each partner.

Transitional kitchen designs often include:

  • cabinetry doors with simple profile (often Shaker style, pairing stained and painted finishes)

  • crown molding with very little ornamentation, or no molding at all

  • neutral color palettes

  • mix of natural and manufactured materials

  • clean lines in craftsmanship

  • traditional, industrial, or modern lighting
