Kitchen Cabinetry that Adds Warmth and Sophistication

The Best Tips to Clean Your Kitchen Cabinets

Getting quality kitchen cabinetry adds so much elegance and personality to your space. Though many homeowners like to incorporate elaborate, glossy designs to make their kitchen cabinetry stand out, simple yet colorful designs also ensure that your kitchen is permeated with endless warmth and sophistication. 

Choosing the right kitchen cabinetry that adds comfort and style will make your home more cozy and inviting to potential visitors. 

What Should You Look For in Cozy Kitchen Cabinetry?

Kitchen cabinetry should use warm and neutral tones.

The quality of your kitchen cabinetry should be the first element you prioritize. If you’re going for your dream kitchen, you should go for one that has the most solid frames, drawer fronts, doors, and corners. Each of which should be supported by high-quality construction. 

Kitchen cabinetry should have a smooth finish on the wood or alternate material that’s used. Similarly, you should aim for the finish to be as natural as possible. A quality contractor can often achieve this with several natural wood finishes that are painted, stained, and laminated onto the material. 

Because you’re constantly interacting with kitchen cabinetry, you will also want to optimize its design and functionality in a way that makes it easier to use every day. 

Kitchen Cabinetry: Colors and Design 

Your kitchen cabinetry should use warm and neutral tones, creating a simple yet elegant design that’s welcoming to anyone who visits your home. If you have a stock cabinet, however, you may have a more limited range of styles to choose from. 

Alternatively, custom cabinets offer more style choices. But the style should perfectly mesh with your home’s architecture as well as your interior design. Good kitchen cabinetry, after all, combines simplicity with panache. Ensuring you get the aesthetic advantages you crave, while also enhancing how your kitchen operates.

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.

Proportion

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.

Choose from a wide selection of materials.

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.

A white kitchen will never go out of style

White is still the most common color scheme for a kitchen, but you want to make sure that everything isn’t a stark white, making your kitchen feel like a hospital room. You want your kitchen to feel clean, not sterile. Bright, not stark. Dazzling, not blinding.
If you are going with crisp white walls and cabinetry, break it up with another splash of bright color, like a red or a yellow. You can also pick a countertop that is dark chocolate or black to break up the white.

Simplify your color scheme to make your kitchen seem bigger and brighter

Be sure not to mix too many colors, as a busy kitchen will feel cramped and cluttered. Mixing in a few deep dark colors in a few strategic places will make your kitchen feel sleek, modern, and dynamic.
If you are working with darker surfaces in your kitchen, think about texture. Pick materials and texture that will reflect the sunlight. It’s like using mirrors to create the illusion of more space. Sunlight reflecting off of a few surfaces can magnify and maximize the natural sunlight, making your kitchen feel more vibrant, as opposed to muted textures that will swallow the light.
If you have a small area to begin with, think about having open shelves instead of closed cabinets. Shelves will leave the back wall exposed, creating more space, as opposed to cabinets with doors that can take up a lot of precious space in your kitchen.
