Transitional Kitchen Design in Maryland, Virginia, and DC

Now that you’ve decided it’s time to remodel your kitchen or install brand-new custom cabinetry, let’s turn your attention to style and design. Our award-winning kitchen designers will make your kitchen the centerpiece of your home, and picking the right style of custom kitchen design is what will take it from ordinary to extraordinary.

If you’re charmed by the elegance and old-world feel of traditional kitchens but crave a more modern touch, then a transitional kitchen design is the best choice for you. Transitional kitchen designs are the most popular in the Maryland, Virginia, and DC areas, and for good reason. They combine elements of both traditional and contemporary kitchen designs and enhance all styles of homes in the area—from row houses in downtown Washington DC, to the charming single-family homes in Maryland, to the grand estates in Northern Virginia.

Characteristics of Transitional Kitchen Designs

Transitional kitchens are somewhere between contemporary kitchens and traditional kitchens, blending aspects of the two styles to bring an updated feel to a classic look. They work well with any style of home because of the trendless nature of combining classic elements with modern touches.

  1. A blend of old and new: The most defining characteristic of a transitional kitchen is the blend of traditional and contemporary styles. Transitional kitchens feature the rich materials and warmth of traditional spaces—and also the simpler accents and cleaner lines of modern, contemporary ones.
  2. A neutral color palette: Transitional kitchen designs feature a lot of muted, neutral colors that blend natural and man-made materials without busy patterns or excessive detailing. The result is a simple, clean, sophisticated look that most likely won’t go out of fashion. Materials like woodwork and natural stone are combined for a more traditional architecture that is complemented by modern touches in the custom cabinetry, light fixtures, furniture, and appliances.
  3. Combination of materials: Transitional kitchens feature a combination of materials with lots of different textures. For example, transitional custom kitchen cabinetry would be constructed of a simple type of wood while the island and countertops would showcase natural stone or concrete. Metal or steel accents would add a pop of modern to the space.
  4. Sleek custom cabinetry: The custom cabinetry for your transitional kitchen would be low-profile, simple, and warm. When we design transitional kitchens, we favor custom cabinetry with simple hardware that won’t distract from the eclectic collection of materials in the space. When you add too many details, the magnificence of the combination of new and old is lost. Minimalist cabinetry with muted or recessed hardware works well, as do warmer tones that match the color palette of the natural materials in the rest of the kitchen.
