Who knew something as simple as your kitchen cabinets could make such a big impact in your home?
Cabinet design isn’t an afterthought. In today’s blog, we will be discussing a few different kinds of cabinet options… all in an effort to help you choose a look you love. Take a look.
With a touch of rich, vibrant red, cherry cabinets add a warm flair to any kitchen they’re placed in. Because this hue is already so richly saturated, it often makes sense to use cherry next to tamer, more neutral colors (think white or beige). However, that isn’t to say cherry cabinets can never be used next to other colors. Consider pairing them with bright green walls for a charming, woodsy feel perfect for chefs who love a touch of nature.
White cabinets seem to have grown in popularity over the last few years, and it’s easy to see why. This style is surprisingly versatile, as white cabinets look just as good in homey, cottage-style kitchens as they do more modern, sleek setups. It just depends on how you balance it all out. For a contemporary, cutting-edge kitchen, pair your white cabinets with sleek metallic hardware, white walls, and cool accents. To embrace a warmer look, beige walls, handmade accents and wood counters add a welcome sense of comfort.
Espresso cabinets add a bold vitality to your kitchen, just like your favorite morning pick-me-up. Because they are so dark, they work best when balanced with light walls, stone countertops, and warm-toned backsplashes that pull out the red-leaning hues from the cabinets.
No upper cabinets
You can, of course, forego those upper cabinets altogether. It’s a bold design choice, and you might have to get creative in searching for spare storage options, but the end result is a sleek, minimalist look that frees up space for you to showcase a beautiful window, wallpaper, paint scheme or even free-floating shelves.
Who says your upper cabinets have to match with your lower ones? While this may be the most traditional option, it’s not the only way to go. If you’re interested in this kind of setup, opt for cabinets that complement one another (instead of shades that are very similar). Think cherry with white, or beige with espresso. To keep your kitchen looking intentionally mismatched, as opposed to thrown together, maintain unity across other areas—use the same hardware throughout, for example, and keep your accents simple.
Frosted glass cabinets
For a cool, airy option, why not consider frosted glass cabinets? They let you see through enough to know what’s inside (which can be helpful, especially when family comes to visit during the holidays!), but don’t show all the details—keeping the overall look clean and refined. They provide a nice alternative to completely clear cabinet doors, which are better reserved for craft rooms or curio cabinets.
There’s a cabinet for every kind of chef—and every kind of kitchen. We hope that today’s blog helps you find the arrangement that’s perfect for your home.
