Welcome to the Kleber & Associates blog! Here’s the latest on New Building Products Designed to Match a Variety of Home Architectural Styles

Is your home easily identifiable as a cottage, contemporary or traditional style home? Many Americans search far and wide to find the perfect family home, sometimes even going the extra mile to custom build their own home. Typically, instead of building a conventional ranch or two-story home, today’s discriminating homeowner prefers to own a home with a distinct, identifiable architectural style. Home and building product manufacturers design products to be versatile–easily matching a variety of architectural styles knowing that homeowners, builders and architects will only purchase precisely the right product to match the style of their home.

Design Versatility on the Exterior

CableRail, by Feeney, Inc.
Consider the company, CableRail, by Feeney, Inc., for example. Stylistically versatile, the CableRail design offers an innovative railing solution that creates an appealing design aesthetic on a myriad of architectural styles from contemporary to cottage to period homes, whether truly old or new construction. The clean, finished look of these strong but slender cables is enhanced by special end fittings that are easily concealed into wood or metal posts. The result is a railing infill that is not only durable and attractive; but virtually invisible, creating an unimpaired view. Feeney cables and components are suited to residential, commercial and institutional railing applications and offer a low maintenance, environmentally friendly and visually unobtrusive alternative to commonly used wooden or metal picket infill.

Danver Stainless Steel Cabinetry
Another example of stylish design suited for any home comes from Danver, a leader in stainless steel cabinetry. Whether you’re searching for an entire outdoor kitchen unit or just a fresh take on cabinets for your indoor kitchen, Danver has you covered. With the powder-coated stainless steel cabinets that come in a wide variety of colors, door styles and finishes, Danver suits any style of home. The stainless steel cabinets from Danver offer durability, and easy installation, as well.

It’s no doubt that stainless steel cabinets evoke more of a modern and industrial look to a kitchen, and if that’s the look you’re going for, then look no further than Danver. The color and texture possibilities of Danver cabinets can give an existing kitchen a gorgeous face-lift. Danver cabinets have the ability to be painted in many attractive finishes from a standard color chart, or can be customized to suit your desired look.

If your home interior design is traditional, you may prefer Danver’s faux-wood finishes. The innovative faux-wood finish is an Italian painting process that transfers realistic grain imprints onto stainless steel, providing an authentic wood look. The faux-wood finishes make a rich statement on cabinet door inlays, and when surrounded by coated stainless steel, mix traditional and modern motifs in your kitchen décor. For more information, visit www.danver.com
