We hear fans say they want less molding on their kitchen cabinetry, but they aren't crazy about the minimalism of ultra-contemporary kitchens either.
Warm, homey, casual, colorful, matte. More emphasis on the traditional elements of a kitchen--appliances, hardware, countertops. The countertops are distinctly different from the kitchen cabinets. The appliances have personality.
Clean, minimalist, formal, white, shiny. The gray panel on the island and the backsplash help to set off all the white kitchen cabinet doors. The countertops are the same color as the kitchen cabinets. The appliances blend in.
Glossy contemporary foil kitchens can be had at a fraction of the cost of laquered kitchen cabinets. Many colors available from Crystal Cabinet Works. This photo from Kitchens.com
Recently completed. Painted maple, granite.
Entertain with style. Even the pantry can be stylish.
Here is a great example of a kitchen with stacked wall cabinets. Also a good example of a "two-toned" design. The island is a stained wood and the others are painted.
Check out this two-tone contemporary. The dark kitchen cabinets and the white kitchen cabinets are nicely balanced. There is a strong statement of light and dark. This can work in traditional designs too. Try to avoid a checkerboard look.
New cherry door samples from Crystal Cabinetworks. Clockwise from the top middle: Belmont style in Cherry Truffle. Greenfield in Cherry Honeytone. Townsend in Cherry Sepia. Winthrop in Honeytone with Van Dyke Brown Glaze. Country French Square in Williamsburg Yellow with Brown Glaze. Claremont door style in Cherry Amber. The kitchen cabinets below the countertop are Natural cherry. Cherry is capable of amazing variation as you can see. Yes the wood actually comes from cherry trees. They are slow growing and small. That's why it's a premium wood and costs more that maple or oak. Crystal is an excellent value considering all the hand staining, glazing and sanding that goes into making your kitchen perfect.
That moveable piece above the door is a transom. Used for ventilation whether you have a steam generator or not.
VICTORIA + ALBERT tubs are amazing...Amalfi pictured. We have the Toulouse in our kitchen and bath design and cabinets showroom. Come by and try it out. We are offering an amazingly good price on Victoria + Albert tubs and sinks.
White Kitchens. They are always in the top 3 of what clients are looking for. Most are painted maple or MDF or a combination of the two. Maple will show tiny cracks in the paint as it expands and contracts. MDF (medium density fiberboard) does not expand or shrink and takes paint very well. Many of the finest cabinet brands use MDF doors or door panels for a flawless painted look. Notice the "wall" of cabinets and appliances in this kitchen. This is a very contemporary element seen in "modern" kitchens where all the tall elements are massed together in one "wall". Here this Configuration works because the island countertop is nearby.
A contemporary kitchen in cherry and granite. Also had a heated floor.
Aren't these drawers great? Perfect if you need more drawers or don't like lazy Susan's. BTW I had a client named Susan who did not like the name, lazy Susan. So as not to offend her, I called them "corner carousels."
That is a portable plate rack in the drawer. It's expandable to fit all sizes. Easy to carry to your table. I think they are coming out with wooden ones soon.
