When you’re redesigning your kitchen, one of the most important considerations will be the cabinets. Not only do you need to plan out how much space you will need for storage and work space, but you will want to select cabinets that are attractive as well. These design considerations will help you select cabinets that will allow you to have a functional, gorgeous kitchen.
Choosing Cabinet Materials
There are many different materials used to create great kitchen cabinets, with solid timber being the top choice for most homeowners. You can also select from stainless steel, melamine, or thermofoil. Mowlem & Co can customise cabinets for your dream kitchen out of varies types of timber to create the look you want for the most important room of your home.
Picking Door Style
The style of door that you select for the cabinets will set the tone for the kitchen. You can select from traditional styles with metal hardware to ultramodern looks sans door handles. The doors can be plain or you can add design aesthetics like tambour doors, raised panels, or beading to give your cabinets a one-of-a-kind appearance.
Think Outside of the Box
When Mowlem & Co customises your kitchen cabinets, you don’t have to choose the traditional boxy style. Instead, consider adding some curves to kitchens for a unique styling that will grab people’s attention when they see it. Make a curved island the centrepiece of your kitchen or add curves to the ends of the cabinets facing your living area for a different style.
Add in Glass
Not all of the cabinets in the kitchen need to hide what you’re storing in them. Add some glass fronts to smaller cabinets to show off some of your more elegant dishes. If you have pieces you’ve collected or inherited over the years, arrange them behind the glass doors to create an easy decorative element in your kitchen.
Selecting the Finish
Most companies that offer bespoke cabinets, like Mowlem & Co, offer a variety of finishes for the cabinetry. You can select from simple finishes like varnishes or hand-painting, or you can go with something more elaborate, such as veneering. Consider the worktop when you choose the finish for your cabinets, because you won’t want something too busy-looking in case you decide to sell your house in the future.
If you are an avid cook, then you will want to choose a durable material for your kitchen worktops. Although you will probably use a cutting board, it is important to select a surface you can cut on when you’re in a hurry. Quartz is a popular choice and it comes in a wide variety of colours and patterns that can create showroom quality kitchens in Harrogate.
The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your home, and the cabinets are an integral part of having a great-looking space. Use these considerations when choosing bespoke cabinets for storage and work space in the kitchen.
