The kitchen is the heart of the home. It doesn’t matter if it’s small, large, dated or brand new. Whether it’s a regular weeknight evening with family or a festive weekend occasion, everyone tends to gather in the kitchen. Perhaps out of any other room in a home, the kitchen needs to be how you want it. A kitchen can excite or frustrate homeowners, depending on a myriad of factors. With the main focus of a kitchen being cabinetry, it’s imperative that you’re happy with your cabinet choices.
Cabinets take up the most space in a kitchen and provide the storage you need to stay organized and sane. When a kitchen is lacking adequate cabinetry, stress and frustration can ensue. There are numerous styles of kitchen cabinets on the market today. Whether you want something antiquated, vintage, contemporary or rustic, you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for. What many homeowners don’t realize is there are options available today that can offer your space pizzazz and individuality. Below are several unique ideas to make your kitchen stand out from the crowd.
Mid-century modern: The mid-century look maintains its popularity. Many homeowners are choosing to upcycle original mid-century cabinets or purchase new cabinets that have a mid-century look. This style is especially popular in homes built between 1950 and 1970. With houses from this period, the rest of the home has a mid-century feel, so homeowners choose to keep the look consistent for the kitchen.
Floating shelves: Floating shelves are a favorite in all rooms of a home, not just the kitchen. This type of shelving complements cabinetry well in that it offers additional storage but also adds to the décor of a space.
Luxury glass: Glass-front cabinets are exquisite yet expensive. If you have a means, this look will offer class and elegance. It also exudes a multi-faceted look as thought the cabinets are both stacked and floating.
Mismatched: For a funky, one-of-a-kind look, mix and match a variety of cabinet styles. You can do this with your purchasing of new cabinetry or by blending vintage or antique cabinets with new cabinets.
Reclaimed wood: Along with looking beautiful, reclaimed wood shelves are about as eco-friendly as you can get, especially when you use wood from old barns or fallen trees. These cabinets also offer a stunning natural grain look.
Earthen: This type of shelving/cabinetry is slightly similar to reclaimed wood but with a much more rustic and unfinished feel. For instance, a homeowner may choose to use a chunk of tree as a floating shelf and intentionally leave the woodsy look.
Rustic: Rustic cabinets mix and max natural styles with modern design concepts to create a classic yet refined look. This type of cabinetry is usually made with quality types of wood such as pine and oak.
Gothic: Gothic cabinets are part of an overall gothic look. This style of kitchen often has dark cabinetry, wood beams, stained glass windows and other elements signature of Goth styles.
When it comes to kitchen cabinetry, there is no shortage of unique styles. Whatever your vision, the Braemar designers can make it come to fruition.
