Detailed Millwork

Custom millwork is a mainstay in traditional style homes. Traditional homes are known for their opulence, which custom millwork like tray ceilings, coffered ceilings, wall trim, crown molding, and panel molding can achieve.


Traditional style homes usually greet guests with grand foyers or entryways. Fresh flowers are a nice touch to add to a foyer, adorning the first landing place in the home with something beautiful to look at and smell.

Defined Rooms

While many modern traditional homes are starting to have more open layouts, a true traditional style home has defined spaces for each room even if there are no walls to separate them.

Laundry Room

Traditional style houses usually have their own separate laundry room. This room can match the rest of the home’s style with thick crown molding and interesting architectural details or it can be styled traditionally with blues, greens, and neutral colors.

Porch with Pillars

When we think of traditional homes we think of the home’s traditional exterior features such as a porch with grand pillars. The porch can wrap around the house or be limited to the front door area, but a porch is a distinctive traditional home feature.
