Kitchen Cabinets: More Than Just Doors

Aug 25, 2008
When you think of kitchen cabinets, what do you typically think of? Chances are it's wood-framed boxes with a door front. But there's more that meets the eye when it comes to kitchen cabinets. Of course, the eye will first gravitate to the kitchen cabinet focal point, so you'll want to choose a kitchen cabinet manufacturer that offers a wide selection of wood door styles and finishes, and the more the merrier. One leading manufacturer of kitchen cabinets offers more than 100 door styles, six wood species and 37 furniture finishes, running the gamut from maple, oak, hickory, cherry and birch; square, arch and slab; and colorful glazes and veneers.

As a discerning homeowner, you won't want your kitchen cabinets to stop there, however. That same manufacturer also offers a wide range of decorative cabinet hardware to take your kitchen cabinets from merely attractive to va-va-voom!

DailyGleaner.com recently posted an article titled "Looking for new cabinet doorknobs? Drawer pulls? There are plenty of options to choose from" that addressed this very topic. Therein, the author points out the when it comes to kitchen cabinet finishing touches, "There is a wide variety of design styles and prices" to choose from.

"These accents customize your cabinetry for a look that reflects your personal style. The total for this hardware depends a great deal on the size of your kitchen and how many doors and drawers in it."

The article also suggests, "Anyone looking for kitchen hardware should consider style, color and the rest of the space to coordinate with what already exists in it, such as lighting and faucets." Decorative hardware can change the look of your cabinetry a little - or a lot. The choice is yours. From the simplest to the most extravagant looks, you'll want to choose a kitchen cabinet manufacturer that offers a complete selection of styles to complement your own unique style.

The author recommends that you "Look for something that's going to last. You want something that's not going to look dated in a few years. But if you want to be trendy ... pick less expensive pieces." Daily Gleaner also suggests, "It's a good idea to make sure you find something that feels good in the hand. Some people refer to this (cabinet hardware) as kitchen jewelry because it is the finishing touch to the space."

The author's best piece of advice is not to overthink things. "Pick something that meets your needs. Get something you can live with. Make sure you like the feel of it on the cabinet door. If you aren't sure about what will look and feel right in your kitchen or bath, sometimes it is possible to take samples home." You might also consider evaluating your various options over the Interner at a kitchen cabinet manufacturer's online showroom.

With so many kitchen cabinet styles and materials to choose from, "whether you are looking for something to suit a modern, traditional or country home, you will likely find something to suit your design preferences."
