Remodeling Ideas: Kitchen Cabinets

When remodeling your kitchen, the best and easiest place to start can be the cabinets. Often the focal point (because they take up the most space) in the kitchen, a simple upgrade or change to your cabinetry can change the overall design of your space. Changing the cabinets can also improve the functionality of the kitchen, offering more storage space easily masked by the cabinetry facade. Wine and spice racks, hideaway dishwashers and trash compactors, as well as dish, cutlery and cookware storage can be built in, allowing for more counter and wall space. Design style choice doesn’t have to be difficult, a simple change in color and cabinet door style can easily change the cabinetry in your kitchen. Here are a few kitchen remodel ideas:

For European styled cabinets, frameless cabinet doors easily give your kitchen a uniquely modern look. European design often features wider drawers and more accessible cabinets.

For Traditional elegance and a formal appearance, have crown molding added to your cabinetry.

Contemporary cabinets often feature darker, bolder stains and glass doors.

If you prefer a more antique feel, try  Rustic styled cabinets. This look is usually achieved with distressed wood or stains.

Transitional styled cabinets combine traditional and contemporary styles by blending recessed cabinet panels and flat frames.

All of these styles can easily tie into the overall design of your home while creating more space in your kitchen. Top off your remodel by painting the walls and having an island installed (if the budget allows).

Kitchen Remodeling Ideas: Sleek, Minimalist, and Modern

You’re planning to update and upgrade your kitchen.  You want a kitchen that has the latest appliances and the cutting-edge in design.  Something to reflect your modern lifestyle, something that simplifies both form and function, while bringing out the best of both.

So if you’re looking for sleek and chic kitchen remodel ideas, consider some of these themes:

Modern: A modern kitchen is sleek and clean, with a heavy focus on hard, angular lines. Modern designs are often minimalist, and eschew ornamentation in favor of accenting the natural beauty of the materials and making small splashes of color – be it from kitchen-bound plants or a fresh meal – that much bolder.

Contemporary: While “modern” and “contemporary” are used interchangeably, there are subtle differences between the two that can make a world of difference when it comes to design decisions. A contemporary design, while retaining the sleekness and minimalism of a modern design, is much more accepting of organic shapes and curves and works really well with dark, earthy woods. For a lighter-colored contemporary kitchen, brightly colored chairs can bring new life to the whole design.

Transitional: Closer to traditional-style kitchens, transitional kitchens blend classic designs with modern materials. Transitional designs tend to be slightly more ornamental than their contemporary cousins, and have a strong focus on the clash of sleek, modern appliances with older-styled natural materials. Textured backsplashes and cabinets bring out the life in the transitional kitchen’s generally muted neutral colors.

Kitchen Remodeling Ideas: Classic, Timeless, and Elegant

You love the classics. Nothing too fancy, nothing too out-there – you want a kitchen with a timeless charm that’ll look good year after year. After all, a kitchen doesn’t need to look space-age to work perfectly, and sometimes a slight touch of history adds a bit of class.

So if you’re looking for timeless kitchen remodel ideas, consider some of these themes.

Traditional: Ornate and intricate, traditional kitchens bring back the splendor of large old-world kitchens. Adding legs and toe kicks to islands and cabinets gives them an elegant look. Decorative lantern and chandelier style lighting brings a softer look and light to the kitchen. Tall cabinets – mounted and freestanding alike, give the kitchen a much more comfortable feel. When all the details come together, a traditional kitchen ends up feeling more like a living room or lounge than a kitchen.

Classic: While not quite as ornate as a traditional kitchen, classic kitchen themes are no less elegant. Focusing more on neutral whites and blacks, classic kitchens focus on the beauty of simplicity. While decorative architecture on the fixtures isn’t ruled out, it tends to be more toned-down, to keep the space feeling comfortable and neutral. The real appeal of a classic kitchen comes from both the fact that it appeals to everyone, but also from the fact that its look can change at a moment’s notice. If you decide you want to change things up a year later, swap out the furniture, and the whole kitchen fits together in a completely new way.

Craftsman: A craftsman style design avoids superfluous ornamention entirely. Instead, it focuses more on simple function, while emphasizing the natural beauty of the materials used. Rich, dark woods and natural stones complement each other well to create a utilitarian, though warm, look. Make sure to aim for unpainted and stain-coated cabinetry to bring out the rustic feel of this theme.
