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. (This is why including a kitchen designer is so important!) With the help of one of our experienced kitchen designers, you can blend the personal style of each partner and balance feminine and masculine taste all in one transitional design.

Transitional kitchen design often includes:

  • 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

Look for those six transitional elements in photos and images of kitchens to determine if transitional is your style. Talk to one of our experienced kitchen designers.


With traditional kitchen design, we aren’t talking about grandma’s kitchen with its floral wallpaper and laminate flooring. Even “traditional” kitchen remodels include elements of contemporary kitchen design. For example, a large stainless steel hood over the range is popular in most kitchen remodels. That’s contemporary. But our kitchen designers can help you choose a hood that can be covered with an ornamental overlay matching the cabinetry surrounding it. That’s traditional.

Traditional kitchen design often includes:

  • cabinetry doors with traditional raised panels, elaborate profiles or large applied moldings
  • ornamental crown molding
  • classic stains and colors
  • natural materials
  • detailed craftsmanship
  • traditional lighting

When you’re identifying a traditional kitchen style, those six elements are what to look for! Talk to one of our professional designers.
