Benefits of Floor to Ceiling Cabinetry

Just like it says, floor to ceiling cabinetry reaches all the way from the floor to the ceiling. This type of cabinetry layout often moves the bulk of your storage to one or two of your kitchen walls. Your remaining wall — or walls — can then hold open shelving, a large backsplash, or some featured art. On the other hand, you can decide to use floor to ceiling cabinetry on all of your kitchen walls to maximize storage space. All of these tall kitchen cabinets can create a cozy atmosphere in the kitchen and keep your kitchen clutter-free.

This cabinetry option works well in kitchens with open floor plans and those kitchens that have three walls. The missing, or open wall, reduces the amount of possible upper cabinetry, making the floor to ceiling cabinetry design a good option to handle necessary kitchen storage. There are many benefits to these types of kitchen cabinets. However, the decision of whether they are right for your kitchen design will depend on the layout of your kitchen and its size.


If your kitchen is large and opens up to another open space, floor to ceiling kitchen cabinets can work very well in terms of proportion. A large kitchen can accommodate this type of oversized feature, and coupled with an oversized island, floor to ceiling cabinetry can even lend a dramatic effect to the design. Even if your kitchen isn’t huge, if it opens up to a bright room with tall ceilings and windows, the tallness of the floor to ceiling cabinetry will also fit the scale of your space.

Optimize Minimal Space

These types of kitchen cabinets also work really well for small kitchen spaces. Using one wall for floor to ceiling cabinetry may allow you to avoid cabinetry on other walls, opening up the space and making it feel larger. Make the best use of minimal space by customizing floor to ceiling cabinetry.

The Kitchen Showcase can help you determine if floor to ceiling cabinetry is the right style for your kitchen and customize them to optimize your space. Give them a call today to learn more.

Disinfect Your Wooden Cabinets Without Any Damage

The Best Tips to Clean Your Kitchen Cabinets

When cleaning your home, the kitchen is one area that requires a lot of attention and care. It sees a lot of traffic and accumulates a lot of grime, causing the need for it to be cleaned and disinfected often. However, when sanitizing this area of your home, you can’t just grab the first cleaning supply you own. You also must make sure you are cleaning items, particularly wooden cabinets and countertops, the right way. This will prevent damage, increase their lifespan, and keep them looking their best. 

Here are a few kitchen cleaning tips for your wooden cabinets and countertops

To keep your wooden cabinets in tip-top condition, you must be cautious of the supplies you use.

Be Cautious of the Supplies You Use

Certain types of cleaning supplies may be too harsh for the wooden areas of your home and can cause damage. When cleaning, you want to make sure you are using products that are safe for wood. You do not want to use any products with bleach or ammonia as these are too harsh for this material. 

Consider a Natural Option

If you want to disinfect this area of your home but you don’t want to bring harsh chemicals into your house, consider a more natural cleaning solution such as a vinegar solution. To create this, make a 50/50 solution of warm water and vinegar. Spray the solution on your cabinets and wipe them clean. You will want to rinse and dry the cabinets well. 

By repeating this often, you will be able to keep grime buildup at a minimum. 

Use a Specific Cleaning Supply

If you have any questions about kitchen disinfection supplies for your wooden cabinets, talk to the experts. You may receive cleaning tips for your specific cabinets and recommendations on proper supplies you should use.

Lighting Your Kitchen Cabinets

Traditional Kitchen remodel in Denver - The Kitchen Showcase

Our kitchens are getting smarter and smarter – or rather, kitchen design experts are getting smarter. Our designers are always on the prowl for the latest great kitchen design trends, and the one trend that we try to incorporate into every design is cabinet lighting.

Lighting will brighten your kitchen and make it more safe and functional for cooking.

Every kitchen needs great lighting

As much fun as it is to hang out in the kitchen, you are there to get something done. You are dealing with sharp knives, hot pans, and boiling water. Lighting is important to create the right mood, but it is also important for you to be able to clearly see what you are doing.
Hanging kitchen cabinetry can create a lot of shadows and dark corners that can be dangerous in a busy working environment, especially if you like to have a lot of cooks in the kitchen. For families who like to cook together, everyone needs a workspace with great lighting.

Under-cabinet lighting eliminates shadows and blind spots

Overhead lighting is easy when it comes to lighting your kitchen island, but for the counter space underneath your cabinets, the latest in cabinet accessories is under-cabinet lighting. It’s the perfect solution to getting rid of those annoying shadows caused by your cabinets when all you have is ceiling lights.

Brighten up the inside of your cabinets

Under-cabinet lighting is key in a functional kitchen design.

In-cabinet lighting is also making its way into our kitchen cabinet designs. Instead of keeping a flashlight in that messy kitchen drawer, add in-cabinet lighting to eliminate having to fumble around to find what you’re looking for in the back of a cabinet.
Being able to light up individual areas in the kitchen instead of one solid overhead lighting fixture will also make your kitchen feel more lively and bright, as you can play with the texture and the color of the lights to create the mood that you want. Having the option to only turn on a few lights in the area you are working will also help you save on energy.
