Mixing Traditional with Contemporary…

Transitional kitchens include elements of both traditional and contemporary design. Eclectic in nature, they mix natural and man-made materials as well as finishes and textures.

Arguably the most popular style today, the transitional kitchen combines features of both traditional and modern design to create a fresh, updated look.


Cabinets are often finished in a natural wood stain, or else in a neutral paint such as white, gray, or black.


Design lines in transitional kitchens are typically softer, lean towards the simple and linear, and are not as heavy with decorative accents. Simple embellishments and cabinet molding may be used. With their clean and streamlined profile, Shaker-style doors are popular in transitional kitchen designs.


The goal is to balance out the embellished familiarity of the traditional design with the new paints, trends, and materials of the current day – without seeming stark or futuristic.
