Traditional Cabinetry, An Easily Recognized Design
The traditional cabinetry style borrows elements from 18th century England, the French countryside and even the exotic lands of the East. The most prominent element in a kitchen, the cabinetry sets the style. Typically, traditional cabinetry is designed to look more like furniture. Often, for example, the cabinetry features glass door inserts, applied moldings, carved trims and corbels or wood appliqué embellishments. Also, cabinets may have mortise and tenon or mitered door panels. Further creating the traditional cabinetry look, cabinet doors can be used to integrate dishwashers and refrigerators into the room.
A traditional design style is the opposite of sleek, clean-lined contemporary styles. The style can be formal or casual. Either way, it’s known for a warm, inviting feel that screams comfort.
