Transitional Kitchen with Modern Style in Port Washington, NY
This is a cross between a transitional kitchen and a modern kitchen where unique modern design is mixed with warm transitional elements. Here we creatively uses dark and bold colors combined with stainless steel, natural materials, glass and stone, and dramatic lighting. We added many interesting design elements to this transitional kitchen such as striking contrasts in the cabinet finishes on the base and the wall cabinets. The dark “Bistro on Cherry” finish adds mystery and an essence of privacy while the lighter “Champagne on Rift Oak” upper cabinets add vitality and life with a touch of modern style. The cabinetry door style we used is Wood Mode Vanguard Plus. Our clients wanted something modern, yet warm, for their beautiful Port Washington, Long Island, NY home. They requested a bit of color but did not want a “wood-kitchen” look. An interesting feature of this design is that the toe-kick has been eliminated from the island cabinets giving it a floating feeling. The tumbled marble backsplash was installed vertically to create a dramatic accent for the beautiful Viking professional stove. Below the microwave is a hidden warming drawer integrated into the sleek cabinetry, and the sink base cabinet was designed to look like two drawer heads. The Ceasarstone Quartz countertop in Lagos Blue provides visual perfection that makes this kitchen feel like a decadent luxury. By incorporating the eat-in dining area with the media room, the kitchen offers a unique open plan lifestyle space for this couple to enjoy.
