Traditional Style

Don't confuse a traditional kitchen with Old World or country. Although, like the latter two, the traditional kitchen design style is "warm and classic," with elements of English and French taste, the palette incorporates soft, muted colors: creams, whites, taupes, light grays or greens, instead of the brighter blues and golds you'd find in an Old World design.

“Traditional" is a very general term that encompasses many styles and doesn't lean heavy in any one direction. The ability to mix and match different fabrics and wood tones benefits traditional design. They are not "purist" kitchens, but rather a more eclectic combination of styles that incorporate more detail and ornamentation than the simple clean lines of most modern styles, The need to bring the outdoors in to represent this style means the space will include natural materials on the floors, in the cabinetry and with furnishings. You might see marble, brick, stone and even wood on the backsplash, and other materials and surfaces that give the space a handcrafted look.

Natural wood interiors and dovetailed drawers are a hallmark of traditional handcrafted cabinetry.  With our state-of-the-art finishes and advanced technology in soft-closing hardware, Gemstone Cabinetry imparts the look and feel of fine furniture.
