The focal point of the kitchen is usually the cabinetry because they take up the most space. Therefore, if you’re looking to remodel your kitchen, having the cabinets redesigned can transform the style and mood of the space; as well as improve the overall functionality of the kitchen; offering more storage space easily masked by the cabinetry facade. Your choice of style can be as simple as a change in color and cabinet door style, easily changing the cabinetry in your kitchen without having to do a complete kitchen overhaul. Here are a few design points for your kitchen cabinetry:
If you prefer a traditional styled kitchen, crown molding gives the cabinetry an elegant and formal appearance.
An option that will give the kitchen more of an antique, or rustic, feel is distressed wood cabinetry.
If you prefer a style that is bold, try a more contemporary design by having cabinets stained with darker colors and refaced with glass doors.
You can combine traditional and contemporary styles, creating a transitional style, by blending cabinet panels that are recessed with flat frames.
Frameless cabinet doors easily give your kitchen a European inspired modern style. They also feature wider drawers and easier to access cabinets.
With all of these cabinetry choices, you can have extra storage installed, increasing the functionality of your kitchen. This means that wine and spice racks; hideaway dishwashers and trash compactors; as well as dish, cutlery and cookware storage can be built in; which can allow for more counter, floor, and wall space.
