Should You Cover and Hide Your Kitchen Appliances?

Creating a gorgeous kitchen requires a lot of work and some major decisions. Many of the choices you make will greatly affect the look and feel of your kitchen. For example, no matter if you are only replacing the cabinets in your Denver home or you are completing a major kitchen renovation, you must choose if you wish to cover and hide the appliances in this room or leave them exposed and easy to access. 

Exposed Appliances Provide an Industrial Look

Exposed kitchen appliances enhance the industrial trend in the room.

If you choose to leave your kitchen appliances exposed, it is a terrific way to create an industrial feel in the space. As part of this design trend, you can easily see your large appliances and they tend to be a focal point in the kitchen. Additionally, you may consider large hoods as well to take the industrial trend a step further. 

However, if you choose to keep your appliances exposed, strive to make all items match. This creates a more complete look in this area of your Colorado home. 

Covering Your Kitchen Appliances

When covering your kitchen appliances, it creates a more complete and streamlined look in your kitchen. If you are striving for the minimalistic look in your home, this is an excellent way to help you achieve that style. 

There are several solutions for integrating appliances in your kitchen. A few ideas include: 

Integrate with cabinets: Place your appliances behind cabinet doors. For example, install a large cabinet door on the front of your refrigerator so it appears there are many shelves and drawers in its place, rather than a fridge. 

Build a Prep Kitchen: A prep kitchen is a smaller kitchen that is tucked away onto the side of your primary kitchen. This is where you can store all of your appliances so they do not create an eyesore in your main living space.

No matter if you are considering kitchen remodeling for your Denver house or you just want to update the look of various areas of this room, at The Kitchen Showcase we can help. Contact us today to learn more about our products and services or to schedule a visit to our showroom. 

Dreaming of a Modern Kitchen? Let’s Make it a Reality!

There are several kitchen styles to choose from and it can be a challenge to determine which one you desire. One popular option for cabinetry is a modern and contemporary style

Modern and Contemporary Kitchen Styles

When you choose a contemporary or modern look, you are choosing kitchen cabinets that are very sleek and clean in appearance. A contemporary kitchen is minimalistic and doesn’t offer many of the details and intricate designs that other kitchen cabinet styles will offer. 

Some of these cabinets do not offer any type of additional details or hardware. This enhances the minimalistic look of the cabinet. However, when a handle or doorknob is installed, it is very simple such as a solid bar handle. 

Modern and contemporary kitchen cabinets are available in a large selection of colors, helping you find the perfect item for your Colorado home. With these products, bold colors are available to give the modern kitchen cabinets in your Colorado home a customized look. However, some of the most popular cabinet colors are black, grey, and white. Tuxedo cabinetry is also a popular design trend where the upper cabinets are a different color than the lower cabinets.

Next to the clean line trend, neutral colors such as white, gray, or earthy tones are quite popular because they work well with a variety of design elements. These colors not only provide a sense of warmth but give you more design freedom to add bold colors elsewhere, providing a seamless blend throughout the house.

Horizontal Orientation

Squares and vertical rectangles are still very popular designs choices for kitchen cabinets, but there is also a rise in horizontal cabinetry demand. With wider cabinets there is not much need to stack cabinets if you have enough storage. Horizontal cabinets not only makes access much easier, they give your kitchen a cleaner, more refined look.

High-Tech Additions

Given the highly technological and connected world that we live in, many homeowners are looking to incorporate a tech perspective to their kitchen cabinets. Built-in charging stations, hands-free devices and tablet holders add functionality and value to the techy kitchen owner.
