Transitional Sherwood Kitchen

Ever wonder what the term “transitional” really means? You can’t browse Houzz pages without stumbling across transitional kitchens, bathrooms, and the like. But what is it exactly? Transitional designs are simply that–transitional! They combine fresh elements of the modern with the timelessness of the traditional. It’s a meet-in-the-middle kind of style, refraining from being too cold, like some contemporary designs, yet not overly traditional in its finishes and decor. Take this remodel in Sherwood, for example…

portland, oregon, sherwood, northland, design, design build, kitchen, remodel, kitchen remodel, transitional, granite, white subway, subway tile, backsplash, chimney hood, painted cabinets, blue cabinets, peninsula, wall ovens, launch pad, display cabinets, stainless appliances

The shaker-style cabinet doors give those fine lines of contemporary design, while the traditional counter-to-ceiling white subway tile create that timeless feel. The classic beadboard behind the open cubes is just another mix of old meets new. Combine it all with a touch of traditional farmhouse with the apron-front sink and wooden saddle stools, and you have yourself a beautiful transitional kitchen. See more here…
