Part I of our series on current cabinetry and millwork design trends features a focus on curves and arches. Use of this architectural detail in your home allows traditional style to meet modern design; which is beneficial because partnerships of modern and traditional mean one thing for you: your renovation efforts will remain timeless. Look for opportunities to incorporate rounded finishes in the following ways: through archways that draw the eye to featured woodwork but also through your islands, vanities and railings.
