Transitional Kitchen with Just a Touch of Asian Influence

Waypoint's style 620D in Maple Espresso

With its stainless steel appliances and back splash tile behind the huge gas range, at first glance you might think this kitchen is contemporary, But look at the cabinetry. It’s traditional raised panel (style 620D) in Maple Espresso. The arched valance over the sink also adds a traditional look but what I love about this kitchen is the introduction of the light fixture over the table and the counter stools that have an Asian feeling. When all these styles are beautifully combined, the style is called transitional.

Transitional simply means the happy marriage of contemporary and traditional styles.

I have always thought that if someone can make really good soup…they can cook pretty much anything. Soup requires the artful combination of herbs, spices vegetables and what-have-you. Mixing decorating styles with equal dexterity creates design magic. That’s just what Sorensen Design Concepts of Fredericksburg VA did in this very special kitchen.
