Traditional Style

Traditional styling celebrates elegance and grandeur while remaining inviting and warm. Styles in this design category can reflect historical design elements using natural materials and colors. Architectural elements and cabinetry tend to be ornate and intricately detailed.

Attention to detail is a strong characteristic. Raised and flat panel cabinet door styles are frequently used and you’ll discover well-thought-out decorative elements like crown moldings, turned posts, bun feet, and corbels throughout.

A few styles that lean toward Traditional include; Colonial, Nautical, Tuscan, Cottage, Victorian,  Mountain Resort, Craftsman, and Old World.

Maybe You're Somewhere in the Middle

The most appealing interior designs are those that reflect the personal pursuits and passions of the homeowner. A design theme weaves an intriguing personal “story” about the lifestyle interests and experiences that mean the most to you. Your Dura Supreme cabinetry should be just that – a reflection of you!

Many styles fall in the middle of the spectrum. For example, Industrial Style is both Contemporary and Traditional. If you’re having trouble determining which category of design style you fall under, perhaps you should explore those ‘in-between’ styles to discover your look. Some examples of ‘in-between’ styles include Industrial and Puritan.

You’re not alone, discuss your project with your designer, and they can guide you through the options and help you discover the perfect style for you and your home.
