Circle No. 162 on Product Card looks," says Kathy Mannion, training manager at Eagan, MN-based Norcraft Companies. Lemel sees lines continuing to lean toward the cleaner side, and adds that, along with straight lines, there's an emphasis on functional and thoughtfully designed styles. "People still lean toward the straight, clean lines of traditional Shaker cabinetry when doing designs that are on the more transitional/traditional side," says Nick Robinson, regional sales manager for Chicago, IL-based Lacava. He adds that the company's new lines, Linea and Navi, have been outselling their long-lived rounded staples. This move toward clean, straight lines doesn't mean, however, that de- signs are harsh and unyielding. L'Henaff says, "Transitional lines that are simple and clean, yet also soft and approachable, are trending right now." Naomi Neilson, founder & CEO at Native Trails in San Luis Obispo, CA adds, "There is always a place for clean, straight lines, though we see a lot of demand for clean lines paired with softer sink materials – or vice versa." "Recent transitional-styled lines are simple yet sophisticated, fea- turing either straight lines or rounded profiles," notes Angela Wellborn O'Neill, director of advertising and marketing for Wellborn Cabinet Inc. in Ashland, AL. "Kitchens, bathrooms or even entertainment, it doesn't matter which room you are in; all lines are straight and clean and softer." She adds that the firm is still not seeing heavy corbels or moldings, and edge profiles on doors have moved toward Shaker-style straight doors or very clean slab doors. OFF THE FLOOR One way to get the clean, uncluttered visual consumers desire is to mount the vanity directly on the wall to create a more open, spacious feel – par- ticularly in small spaces. Luis Guevara, marketing and branding manager for Adornus Cabinetry in Doral, FL says trends are moving toward a European look, which features wall-hung vanities with clean lines. O'Neill notes, "The strongest trend we are seeing is the wall-mounted vanity, bringing the cabinetry up off the floor." Several manufacturers agree that there is increased interest in these styles. L'Henaff believes part of the reason is because wall-mounted van- ities, drawer units and countertops save space and provide a more open feeling in smaller bathrooms and powder rooms. FINISH FAVORITES Designs must express the style and personality of those who live in the space, which means a wide variety of finish options must be available.
