When it comes time to design a kitchen, most homeowners focus first on the kitchen cabinetry because it will not only house all their kitchen gadgetry, dinnerware, edibles and cookware, but it will need to be able to endure daily use and abuse.

When it comes to your kitchen, make sure you know what you want it to look like, how you want the room to flow and how you want your workspace to fit your needs so you can create an attractive and functional living space. You can get some great ideas from poring through magazine articles and photographs, clipping out trendy advertisements and downloading cabinet brochures and images from thousands of websites.

You'll find that cabinetry design is embracing this new trend to create large open living areas by creating cabinetry that has the look of furniture. With more space to be creative, cabinets don't have to be pushed to the room's perimeter but can become part of furniture groupings that are a key component to the overall design, functionality and décor of the living space.
