The list of kitchen cabinet choices for homeowners is growing every day. From short cabinets, tall cabinets, open cabinet design and kitchen drawers, deciding which cabinets to go with for their kitchen can be a daunting task for homeowners who are looking to update their kitchen space. While the type of cabinet is important in the design of a kitchen, there are a couple of style elements that can take a great kitchen design and bring it up to a whole new level.
For starters, every cabinet and drawer needs good hardware. Some say that drawer and cabinet hardware is like the jewelry of the kitchen. Instead of traditional knobs, more modern options for kitchen hardware are nearly endless. These include drawer pulls or knobs made in different colors and finishes, and hardware made out of nontraditional materials. Homeowners have a great opportunity with their choice of kitchen hardware to really make their kitchen space fit the aesthetic they were hoping for.
Another option for making the most out of kitchen cabinet design is to add over the counter or under the counter lighting. This accent lighting is easier than ever before to install. Some types of accent lighting for the kitchen include rope lights strategically placed under or above cabinets, small track lighting or individual battery operated lights attached to the bottom surface of the cabinets, or long tracks of lights that run the length of a set of kitchen cabinets. For homeowners who choose cabinets with open space or frosted glass panels, the accent lighting can be attached inside the exposed cabinet space so that the light comes through the cabinet space instead of above or below it.
Some homeowners will elevate their kitchen cabinets by installing a backsplash underneath the cabinets. Depending on the color of the cabinets, and the colors in the backsplash, this will add depth to their overall kitchen feel or the kitchen will feel more open and modern.
