Transitional Kitchen Designs
Transitional kitchens include elements of both traditional and contemporary design. Eclectic in nature, design is mix of natural and man-made materials as well as finishes and textures.
Cabinets in a transitional kitchen have a streamlined profile that falls just short of modern. Generally made of wood rather than a contemporary material such as lacquer, they sport simple paneled doors and sleek hardware. Part of what separates transitional kitchens from contemporary ones is that they allow for just a hint of decorative ornamentation. Millwork, corbels, windows, furnishings and more bridge the gap between fancy and plain.
