If you want a modern kitchen design that still maintains the charm of a traditional style, a transitional kitchen may be the perfect fusion. A transitional kitchen allows you to meld your favorite modern design features with a more traditional look. Most of us, after all, live in a modern world with a fondness for tradition, and there’s no reason your transitional kitchen can’t reflect that world! A truly effective kitchen renovation is eclectic and personal, yet holds together as a thoughtful design.

By definition, transitional kitchen designs feature an architectural style characterized by an older, traditional style blended with the elements of a modern style. Transitional style kitchens generally utilize a crisp, clean interpretation of traditional design combined with modern colors, textures, materials and appliances. Because a transitional kitchen design avoids excessive ornament and eschews busy patterns, your new kitchen can easily achieve a balanced composition of the old and the new.

When designing a new transitional kitchen, function should be the primary focus. Once the Wentworth, Inc. design-build team works with you to solve your kitchen’s functional issues, we can help you choose the design features best suited to your home and your personal taste. Although a functional kitchen is a necessity, your new kitchen should feel like it belongs in your home. Our expert kitchen designers will study your home, taking into consideration specific architectural details, moldings, proportions and window and door details. Using details from your home, our design team will then devise a kitchen design that maintains an appropriate balance between your home’s existing character and your desire for a brand new kitchen.

Designing a Transitional Kitchen that is Uniquely Yours

With the right transitional kitchen design, we can help you develop a space that works perfectly for you. If you like the charm of subway tiles and old-fashioned pendant lighting but still want modern stainless steel appliances, the Wentworth kitchen design team can suggest a seamless design scheme that incorporates the old with the new. With the right design, even a sleek, sculpturally modern kitchen faucet has a place next to subway tiles and stained wood cabinetry. A smart transitional kitchen design will allow you to seamlessly integrate your stylistic preferences without resorting to a pastiche of motifs, materials and design features.

A sleek kitchen fits the homeowner’s lifestyle and the home’s style
