What is Transitional Style?

Transitional style can be defined as the new classic. This style features classic lines mixed with fresh modern touches. The blend of these design styles appeal to those who find contemporary cabinetry too cold, but like the look of clean lines. This style also allows for more personality and detail than its contemporary counterpart, and gives the homeowner a wide array of high quality choices for their cabinetry design.

How to Achieve This Look

Bloomsbury favours square posts and tapered feet to bring furniture details into the design of their kitchens. Our new spin on classic English-style framed kitchens has been very popular. We create our face frames without beading so that the cabinetry still has a tailored look with classic furniture details, but the overall style is more crisp and the lines are clean and minimal. Clients still love a hand-painted finish as it is feels much softer and looks authentic. It is also very touch-up friendly.

Adding modern hardware to a classic kitchen transforms the look by mixing the two styles. Polished nickel has been a favourite these past few years and is still a great choice for a classic look. This year, homeowners are being more adventurous with hardware and tile selection in order to achieve a more personalized look. The options when designing a kitchen are endless, therefore it’s a matter of finding something that speaks to your personality and style.
