Many people are finding that the latest trends in cabinetry and countertops are providing ways of making every room in the house better. Cabinets have become highly desired built-in furnishings that lead a room in making a clear statement about function and style.
The big difference is that cabinets don’t look like plain old cabinets anymore. Custom window seats, vanities, and hall tables hold place, as well as banks of storage or tall built-ins perfect for housing treasured mementos. Clutter is gone and in its place are elegant drawer fronts or paneled doors. Do you want a more formal look in the eat-in kitchen? Try a careful composition of custom cabinetry that looks like a vintage hutch. Tapered or coved feet can add lift and give an illusion of floor space.
Manufacturers like Mid Continent Cabinetry and RidgeCrest Custom Cabinetry are making attractive built-in storage an essential in interior design for every room and area of the home. Entryways and foyers, kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements, offices, and work rooms—even closets and entertainment centers—can be remade into perfect spaces. Cabinetry has even made it into the bedroom, taking the place of often-bulky, difficult-to-place pieces lacking the proper functionality.
The new cabinetry and storage options are about far more than doors. It’s about having a place to put all the things you need and love—out of sight yet readily accessible—and actually liking where and how you keep them. With custom cabinets, you have your choice of natural, sustainable woods and a full repertoire of choices in glazes and finishes, sizes, edges, bases, glass, drawers, feet, and more. Drawers are everywhere, and many cabinetry makers—like Mid Continent—are returning to dovetailing as a sign of unmistakable quality.
