Portfolio Spotlight: A Transitional Design for an Uptown New Orleans Kitchen

This beautiful, century old home is located in Uptown New Orleans.

Due to its age, extensive renovations needed to be completed throughout the house. It belonged to a young family who was in need of a family-friendly kitchen that opened into the den. To give the family more storage space, we installed Mouser Custom Cabinetry throughout the kitchen. Interior cabinetry lighting was also incorporated along with a custom off-white paint for a brighter atmosphere. In addition to the other stainless steel appliances, we added a sleek downdraft cooktop to the island. True to the transitional design style, this kitchen features clean lines all throughout.

What is a Transitional Style Kitchen?

While traditional styles tend to be more elegant and classic and contemporary styles are more minimalistic, a transitional design style incorporates elements of both. A transitional style kitchen creates a warm, comfortable, and flexible gathering space. This style also stays clear of ornamentation in order to keep the focus on the simplicity of the design. A benefit of this style is the added freedom of choosing elements from two design styles instead of just one. If you want traditional kitchen cabinets as well as sleek marble countertops, aiming for a more transitional style allows you to have both.

How to Add Transitional Elements to Your Home

  • Add clean lines to your cabinetry and countertops.
  • Incorporate more natural light to create a warm and bright atmosphere.
  • Blend different textures (wood, metal, stone) with warm, neutral colors.
