Transitional

Mixing Traditional With Contemporary

A Transitional kitchen with walnut flooring and alder cabinets

Designed By Keystone Kitchen & Bath, Asheville, N.C.

Clear alder cabinets and hand-scraped walnut flooring contrasts with cream-colored horizontal planks.

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.

For example, an Arts & Crafts or Shaker kitchen can be made transitional rather than traditional by lightening the color palette, adding bamboo flooring, and showcasing appliances rather than hiding them behind wooden panels.

Molding and fixtures aren't elaborate but do have some ornamentation.
