How To Update Your Kitchen Cabinets
Trendy Kitchen Cabinets Liven Home Renovations: exploring together various kitchen designs and layouts that include plenty of cabinet space for daily use and storage.
Making The Right Choice For Your Cabinets
Modern home designs are redefining the boundaries of traditional kitchen remodels, creating larger and more open spaces rich with cabinetry. However, basic configurations are still beneficial in determining the overall relationship of appliances, their proximity to one another and how to maximize shelving and storage. Enlist the help of an architect or interior designer to establish the most effective plan, and determining cabinetry dimensions and specifications. Destiny Homes custom made kitchen cabinets follow our intrinsically designed drawings and specifications that feature your preferences. Our kitchen cabinet remodels range from new door faces, refinishing or Faux painting to updating hinges and hardware. However, when faced with cabinetry that's not sturdy, a kitchen that needs layout updates, or in a newly constructed home, kitchen remodel entails an investment in new cabinetry.
"Darker, furniture-like finishes are popular, but so is pure white. The middle ground - think natural oak - is going away. Dark finishes help the kitchen integrate into the overall scheme; pure white is the ultimate accent color that readily complements the rest of the living area." ~ HouseLogic
Refacing and Updated Hardware Adds Personality to Kitchen Cabinets
Refacing cabinets is the process of just changing cabinet doors and keeping the original cabinet structure in place. Kitchen cabinet hardware is often an important line sold by retail lumber and building materials dealers. Some manufactures sell only to those known in the trade as wholesale and are classified in the Lumber and Other Construction Materials industries. Destiny Homes designs often incorporate unique kitchen cabinet hardware. Dovetail drawers with cushion close are standard. Improved drawer glides and readily available dovetail drawers make three- and four-drawer cabinets a better option.
Updated Kitchen Cabinets With Paint
Some homeowners prefer colored kitchen cabinets for modern styled kitchens; and today trendy green for home remodels is making a comeback. It has everything to do with choosing the tone; perhaps a bright one, such green tea kitchen cabinets, which gives kitchen renovations the luxurious more refreshing touch. Mixing colors and tones on cabinets and perhaps pairing with white stone bench top is another way to transform a kitchen. One can always repaint cabinets; as Remodeler of the Year in 2010, let Destiny Homes help you choose the right color for your home.
European-style cabinets are typically recognized by the following characteristics: hidden hinges, soft-close doors and drawers, frame-less cabinet construction, and full-overlay doors and drawer-fronts. These kitchen cabinet must-haves contribute to a kitchen's modern design. Hidden hinges keep things looking sleek with no hardware visible to disrupt the clean lines of your cabinet doors. The soft-close doors and drawers prevent slamming, and extend the life of the cabinet box. The new look of frame-less cabinet construction and full-overlay doors gives a kitchen the look of "just doors" without the older style face-frame behind the doors.
Kitchen Cabinets With Stunning Glass Doors
Glass kitchen cabinets can be stunning and incorporated a mix of cabinet door fronts to display beautiful china and stemware. While lovely, glass kitchen cabinets built with glass doors help keep a kitchen highly organized without trying to recall just where an item is when you need it in a given moment. Daylight-filled kitchens will often find he light shining through the glass and resulting in further lighting up the room. Most kitchen updates involve removing the cabinets from the wall. Depending on each unique home improvement project, the work may require a space of time before installing them back on the wall for a brand new kitchen look. Destiny Home remodelers take great care to cover surrounding countertops with adequate sheeting to protect your home during a renovation.
Trendy French Influences In Cabinetry
Liz Sprenger, an home design therapist, incorporates popular design ideas for kitchen cabinet updates often borrowing from our European friends. Various types of French country kitchen cabinets create a delightful personality to a kitchen's statement. There are many types of cabinet; some homeowners may prefer a traditional French country kitchen versus the modern style one. Destiny Homes custom designs can incorporate just the right touch of French character to be applied in your kitchen.
Contemporary Kitchen Cabinets
Contemporary kitchen cabinets are popular with the tone color and design which are classical as well as have some modern touch. The cabinets are mostly available in white, chrome or bold colors. The basic refacing project consists of installing new cabinet door and drawer fronts and covering the exposed face frames of the cabinets with a matching wood or finish.
Shaker Style Cabinets
The Shaker-style cabinet door is the most common door style in kitchens today, yet can be very dressed up. Its five-piece flat-panel style begins with a frame constructed of four pieces and a single flat center panel for the fifth piece. Its simple, clean lines lend fashion to just about any decor — from contemporary to traditional — with variations in wood selection and stunning wood grains adding the character that sets the stage for a kitchen's personality.
"When updating kitchen cabinets, a clean, simple look is a favorite choice. It looks updating and new while following the trend to eliminate unnecessary clutter and fussy details for simple, elegant living" ~ Butch Sprenger
Types Of Kitchen Cabinetry
There are the four commonly held types of cabinets:
Cabinets Serving As A Base - Standard base cabinets are 24 inches deep and 36 inches tall. Depth may be increased up to 27 inches on some semi-custom and custom applications. For ease of use, base cabinetry rests atop a four-inch recessed riser called a toe kick.
Cabinets Attached To The Wall - Upper cabinetry is generally 12 inches deep but can be increased to 17 inches on some semi-custom and custom applications.
Unique or Speciality Cabinets - Specialty units maximize square footage and organization efforts. They include corner cabinets, sink/cooktop fronts, suspended units, hutches, bottle racks and appliance garages. An 18-inch backsplash creates usable workspace between countertops and the bottom edge of upper cabinets.
Tall Cabinets - Tall cabinet units are typically 83.5 inches in height and are designed with a specific function in mind: such as being desinged for pantry space, space for broom storage / cleaning supplies, or recycling and trash compactors.
