Design Styles


Traditional. Elegant, inviting and reminiscent of a not-so-distant past, traditional cabinet styling is best summed up as ornate, rich and decorative. Usually embodying the golden age of Europe, traditional design styles use a variety of colors, elaborate motifs, and a blend of materials to breathe new life into century-old styling. In today’s hurry-up world, this design style maintains order and refinement through symmetry and balance.

Transitional. Transitional style refers to a mix of traditional and modern furnishings, fabrications, and decorative features that lend you more freedom when looking to decorate your home with ease as there is no end to the direction you can take this design style.

Contemporary. Contemporary design is sleek and minimalist by nature, giving your home a streamlined and clean look. To achieve this effect, contemporary kitchen cabinets generally have flat surfaces and minimal ornamentation.

Design Process

We take the time to undestand your lifestyle and home to ensure your dream room is realized and you make the most of the available space. Through our design process, our experts will take you step-by-step using the latest in design software and techniques to make your dream space come true.

PHASE 1: Initial Visit 

This initial phase consists of a jobsite visit where our designer completes the prerequisite form that results in simple schematic drawings and general cost estimates. Design solution and budget parameters may be established and the proposed concept drawings and budget are presented for review and discussion.

PHASE 2: Revisions/Changes

During this second phase, the floor plan is developed into a more detailed set of drawings based on feedback from Phase 1. Here, specific products are identified or allowance ranges are established for the revised drawings and the overall project budget.

PHASE 3: Project Drawing

During this phase, the final project drawing with product specifications are presented for final approval. The final contract will specify all equipment and materials or dollar amount allowances.

PHASE 4: Decorative Details

In this phase, the actual costs of specific decorative products and equipment are compared to the contract allowances and revised contract or change order is prepared.

FINAL PHASE: Final Project Rendering

In this final phase, customers will receive a final design drawing which will include one floor plan with elevation/interpretative view according to the National Kitchen & Bath Association guidelines. Ashby Lumber will also provide the final proposal for all products and surfaces.
