Traditional + Contemporary = Transitional Cabinetry
Kitchens featuring Transitional Cabinetry are often more contemporary without being overtly so—because they can go either way. For example, Shaker cabinets look great in a more traditional kitchen with the right colors and hardware. In fact, they are a historically significant style. On the other hand, Shaker cabinets work as transitional kitchen cabinets too blending smoothly in a contemporary kitchen. Specifically, when the colors, hardware and other details are contemporary. Yet the “traditional” look of the Shaker cabinet style keeps the room from being all contemporary. That’s the design approach of transitional cabinetry.
