Description

Method™ by American Olean® pays homage to the design process with colors, sizes and textures that flow seamlessly from interior to exterior spaces. A neutral, yet rich color palette provides the backdrop for fluid movement and graceful visual detail. The line includes six design-inspired colors: Structure Cream, Process Beige, Strategic Brown, Taupe Technique, Khaki Approach, and System Sable. Three textures—unpolished, polished, and textured—are offered in popular sizes with TruEdge™ rectified edges. Trim offerings include a cove base, bullnose and cove corner.
