Transitional Kitchen Design in Bethlehem, PA by Lydia Bogle

After living with the same kitchen for 15 years, homeowners Joe and Elaine decided it was time for a major update. This decision led them to Morris Black’s Lydia Bogle, who worked with them to create a stunning transitional kitchen design and new premium appliances in Bethlehem, PA. Here’s how Lydia turned their dream kitchen into a reality:

Transformative Kitchen Cabinet Upgrade

Elaine felt that her original cabinets were not only dated, but also lacked adequate storage. Lydia addressed both concerns with shaker style Signature cabinets in cherry with a “Russet” stain. The popular style modernizes the design while the traditional stain evokes all the warmth of a family kitchen, striking the perfect balance transitional kitchens are known for. Storage solutions such as a pull-out organizer for spices, upper and lower lazy susans, specialized tray storage, a built-in trash cabinet, and a built-in wine rack maximize functionality and address all of the homeowners’ specific storage needs.

Premium Appliances

Speaking of functionality, all of the appliances received a major upgrade too. This transitional kitchen design in Bethlehem, PA features a stainless steel 36” range top, chimney-style hood, and double wall ovens that allow for some serious cooking. The counter-depth KitchenAid refrigerator was also a key choice because it created room for the large island that the homeowners requested.
