Dine By Design
The transitional kitchen is all about a mix between modern and traditional looks. It’s a wonderful opportunity for homeowners to choose the elements they love, without being locked in to one particular style.
Recently, Ray met with a couple who were looking to update their kitchen. They really enjoyed the seminar that our Chief Cabinet Officer gave at the Home Show last year. (Include link to that blog article). Ray noticed from the start that these homeowners were engaged in and excited about the design process.
The homeowners had been looking to create a kitchen that would have a refined, yet modern country feel. After visiting their home for measurements, Ray knew what needed to be done. He removed the raised breakfast bar which made the space feel much more open. Knowing that the couple wanted a white kitchen, his suggestion for Nordic White on Bridgeport was the obvious winner. The cabinetry would also include framed drawer fronts and be topped with a soapstone countertop.
Lastly, there was one special detail Ray added to this transitional kitchen. He completely custom designed a decorative hood for over the oven area.
Bravo Ray for combining so many stunning elements in this kitchen. Not only was the client thrilled with the renovation, but the customized touches truly enhanced the overall kitchen design!

In kitchen design, gray continues to be a wonderful color choice that adds an attractive dimensional layer to any kitchen. Many kitchens we have designed for homeowners have a layering effect of different color stains for the wall cabinets and island. Today, gray is growing in popularity as the overall color scheme in the kitchen.
Nothing spells dignified like the color gray. Known as the ultimate neutral tone, midway between white and black, gray makes an excellent choice for a kitchen color that is sleek and refined. Traditional gray cabinets show a high level of sophistication, and are often found in high-end kitchens and expensive homes.
If you’re looking to design a modern kitchen, gray makes an excellent choice. However, the use of gray in a traditional style kitchen will make it appear more transitional and updated in appearance. Overall, I find the look to be timeless because a classy gray kitchen never looks dated. And unlike white or black cabinets, they’re easier to clean and care for.
