Contemporary styling is defined by a minimalistic look, a clean aesthetic and simple lines. Typical cabinet styling uses flat slab cabinet doors, clean grained wood or wood print laminate in either vertical or horizontal grain and glossy finishes. This is often mixed with bold color, custom artistic wood or metal accents and surprising elements such as shoji screens, retro accessories, and sleek lighting.
Transitional style is defined by a casual and comfortable aesthetic and often incorporates elements of both traditional and contemporary design. Typical cabinet styling uses cabinet doors with a flat panel within a shaker style frame with clean molding detail. Although white is one of the most common finishes, wood in natural and stained finishes may also be used. Mixing finishes and styles is also widely used to add visual interest.
No matter what style you prefer, there are endless ways to make your space your own. Whether it’s using unique storage, a non-traditional countertop material, fixture or finish or an unexpected element such as floating shelves, a unique island, or custom made sculptural elements, you’re limited only by your imagination.
Traditional style is defined by a comforting and inviting aesthetic incorporating classic design elements. Typical cabinet styling uses raised panel cabinet doors with interesting edge profiles, stained woods or paint with glazes and accessories such as corbels, columns and intricate moldings and mullion design on glass doors. Often times darker finishes are mixed with lighter finishes to add visual interest to the space.
