Transitional Kitchen Design

When it comes to home remodeling, many homeowners like to consult with two or three design remodel firms.  This couple had met with one Columbus design firm, but felt they had not investigated all of their options.  They attended the Central Ohio Remodel Expo and met with a designer at Kitchen Kraft.  They shared their wish list which included new kitchen cabinets, granite counters, tile backsplash, under cabinet lighting, and hardwood flooring.

The designer worked with the couple to learn what kitchen layout would best work with their lifestyle.  After meeting with the client in their existing kitchen the designer understood that they needed to maximize their storage and counter space.  The client also wanted to create an entry to the dining room which, combined with the other entryways into the kitchen, created a pass through.  It was decided that the work triangle would be on the opposite side of the kitchen.  In an effort to protect the work and cooking space and to create additional work prep space, an island was installed.  The cook top was installed into the island so the chef could interact with her guests while entertaining.

The designer also understood the couple wanted to blend some traditional and contemporary features to create what is called “transitional” design.  Stained cabinets, hardwood flooring, and granite countertops are more traditional.  The couple chose Kabinart maple stained cabinets with a Hampton door style to compliment the Giallo Vincenza granite, and hickory spice hardwood flooring by Somerset.  For the contemporary design elements, the couple chose stainless steel appliances by Kitchen Aid and multi-colored glass backsplash made by Anatoliatile.
