Innovative Cabinet Accents for the Kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of any home, and like all things pertaining to the heart it's the little things that make the difference. Whether it's intricately detailed glass inserts, decorative molding, creative lighting, designer hardware or innovative storage solutions, choosing the right finishing touches can truly make the room your own.
This kitchen is from Timberlake Cabinetry's®
Portfolio Select® Series, which is their top tier collection of cabinets featuring the style, quality and accents found in expensive custom-built cabinetry. Pictured is the Rushmore collection in painted maple with decorative glass door inserts, dovetail hardwood drawers, pewter hardware, Cushion Close® technology and much more.
Whether your style is traditional or contemporary, glass cabinetry inserts will add an element of sophistication and style to your kitchen design. From classic to textured, etched or camed, glass inserts create a feeling of open space within the cabinetry while showcasing your serving ware.
Interior cabinet lighting helps you easily locate cooking essentials or elegantly showcase stemware. Make food prep easier by illuminating counter space with under cabinet task lighting. If you want to create a soft light above or below your cabinets, you'll want to consider linkable puck lighting and strip sets. Look for interior cabinet lighting, which automatically illuminates the space each time you open a door or cabinet drawer. For a more elegant statement, mount decorative task lighting over your cabinets and shelves.
Very few decorative accents can transform a room quite like moldings. Decorative moldings provide your cabinetry and furniture with style and structure to create an overall graceful balance throughout the room. Here are some molding ideas to consider when designing your new cabinets:
- Above cabinet molding evokes a certain style and creates height in your kitchen by carrying the beauty of the cabinetry to the ceiling.
- Elegant at-ceiling molding gives your cabinetry a traditional feel with a contemporary twist.
- Don't forget to dress up the bottom of your cabinets with decorative molding.
- Ornaments, onlays and corbels add decorative detail to wall hoods, cabinet fronts, ceiling treatments and above cabinet moldings.
The kitchen's wall hood creates a focal point in your kitchen, whether it's over the island where the family gathers or above the range where the cook prepares a meal. Today's style trends call for wall hoods in beautiful wood or streamlined stainless steel.
If you want your wine collections to be incorporated into your kitchen design, you should check the specialty storage options of your cabinet manufacturer, as well as companies like Wine Cellar Innovations®
