Work With A Custom Cabinetmaker
Although you don’t have to start with cabinetry, most homeowners choose custom cabinets and appliances first, then coordinate additional elements. Kitchen cabinets usually take up more than 40 percent of the space in your kitchen, so it’s important to consult with a custom cabinet maker who can make recommendations about the cabinets you choose while working within your budget.
Get creative with countertops, backsplashes, and wall colors. Rich colors in red, brown, and gold have the effect of creating a warm atmosphere. If you want a more eclectic look, vibrant shades of blue are popular. A beautiful kitchen can be created using subtle shades of pink.
Selecting Cabinetry and Countertops
Slab Door or Shaker Panel styles work with country-style kitchens. If you want wall cabinets and doors for your kitchen island that have more detail, choose Mitre Panel or Raised Panel Cathedral styles. Satin or Snow White finishes offer the illusion of more space. Coffee, Cognac, and Mahogany compliment sunny yellows and buttercreams for backsplashes and walls.
For the homeowner who favors a traditional look, cabinets in maple, cherry, or oak are excellent choices. Marble and granite countertops are available in an array of colorful finishes and can enhance your kitchen by giving it a touch of elegance. Exotic marble with hints of gold and silver or polished granite are available in colors to enhance any kitchen decor.
Some homeowners like to use the same materials and colors for the backsplash and countertops. You can create a unique appearance by using mosaic for the backsplash in hues similar to the countertop colors, but in a different pattern to add emphasis.
A professional cabinet maker can create a custom kitchen with personal touches such as a wine closet, storage closets or a pantry. Your new kitchen will be efficient, functional, and a place where you’ll love spending time with family and entertaining friends.
