Cabinets come in a variety of finishes, textures, colors and design styles. Traditional lines with intricate detailing may be your decorative style, or you may prefer modern styled cabinets with less visual detail. Modern styled cabinets shouldn’t be ignored because of their visual simplicity; on the contrary, modern styled cabinets can help transform your space. Modern cabinets tend to blend seamlessly into one another with only reveal lines for visual separation. If you’re in the market for cabinetry, see how modern styled cabinets may be what your home is looking for.
Natural stone backsplashes have a distinctly different texture than tiles, and offer a contrast to smooth counters and cabinets. Stone is porous, however, which makes it harder to clean and more prone to chipping. An alternative to using smaller, stacked stones is to continue the same granite or marble used for the countertops all the way up the wall.
Colors to suit every design style: Is your design style eclectic or ultra edgy that you don’t want to see your interiors in everyone else’s house? Modern styled cabinetry has color choices from cobalt blue to lemon yellow, and every color in the spectrum you can fathom. For those of you that enjoy a kitchen that will represent your personality, cabinetry that exudes color and definition doesn’t require ornamentation and detail. Minimal décor is required, as your cabinetry sets the stage for the entire space!
The door style makes the cabinet: When choosing cabinetry the door style is what you’re really choosing for your decoration. To find cabinet doors, bring home samples or pictures from your local cabinetry dealer. Choose minimal lines for modern kitchens, exposed simple lines for Craftsman style, and intricate detailed doors for a traditional look. Many cabinetry companies will have a sales person that can bring samples to your home to compare in your kitchen. This is a great idea if you are wavering on a style!
When painting your kitchen cabinets, the design choices are limitless. You can brighten up the space with a coat of white, or blast the room with a vibrant color like cobalt. You can also combine colors for a trendy, dual-tone look in your kitchen.
Choose a material: The most common material is wood for kitchen cabinets. Wood is durable, versatile, and can be stained or painted and can have a million different looks. Other materials include metal/stainless steel, plastic laminate, and lower quality MDF or particle board. Depending on your lifestyle and budget will help you decide on a material that suits your style and wallet. Metal cabinets and wood are more expensive than plastic laminate and particle board.
