Kitchen Cabinet Design Ideas
Designs for kitchen cabinet ideas in Long Island do not need to be as limited as some people may think. Types of wood, dimensions, color shades and layout of cabinets will all contribute to creating a unique arrangement for your home. The cabinets don’t always need to be in standard spots either. If you have the space, there is an opportunity to branch out and get creative. Areas for additional cabinets can be constructed at a kitchen island, under the sink or at a built-in desk. The Cabinet Warehouse is here to take you through every step of the way in constructing the perfect scenario for your kitchen cabinets. Below are some aspects and ideas you may want to consider before implementing your plan.
If you have a lot of cabinets and can’t seem to remember where everything is kept, consider cabinets which you can see into. With glass panels inserted, items on the shelf like fine china will make your kitchen more decorative.
A “Garage” for Small Appliances
Maybe you need a small space for a coffee maker, toaster or even a micro TV. These normally don’t work too well enclosed in a cabinet and if you need the counter space for cooking preparations, appliances are going to be obstructing your work. But there is a happy medium with a “garage” underneath an elevated cabinet. It serves as an enclosure to protect the appliance, keep it out of the way, saves space and allows for easy access on the counter.
Lighting doesn’t just have to be from a hanging lamp, especially if you’re going to be doing a lot of food prep on your counters. Different types of conveniently located fixtures can be mounted on the kitchen cabinets themselves. These arrangements will provide more options, particularly if you are looking for dimmer lighting. One such fixture that can be placed underneath the cabinet is a track with pivoting heads, allowing for more control over direction of light beams. LED lights are always a good option if you are looking for longer lifespans. This includes the ones with motion sensors.
Unique Color Options
To master this look in your kitchen you need to paint your upper cabinets a different color than your lower cabinets. There are obviously millions of color combinations to choose from, but some of the more popular choices are black on bottom and white on top. You could also go with bold colors on bottom and neutral colors on top. Another idea that many people do is contrasting colors between your island (if you have one) and your cabinet set.
Reinvigorate and energize your kitchen by painting your cabinets a bright and flourescent color. These color options include an emerald, cobalt or golden yellow. When choosing a color, be aware and conscious of how it will coincide with the wall color and fixtures in your kitchen, as well as the rest of your home. With vibrant and beautiful cabinets, you will want to stick to light and more neutral wall colors to keep your space from becoming too dark and dreary.
Pastel-colored kitchens are a relatively new trend going on today and is a way to create a pop of color and interest in your kitchen and home without making a room’s apperance or asthetic too heavy or dark. The more popular pastel choices that people tend to go with for their kitchen are pale shades of blue and green.
