Kitchen cabinets were originally designed to give the homeowner a more efficient kitchen space by creating storage options and increasing kitchen functionality. While homeowners still prefer a kitchen space with ample cabinet space for storage and functionality, many homeowners also want to create a more beautiful space with their cabinets.

While cabinet choices are nearly endless for kitchen spaces, homeowners can take their kitchen cabinet design to a new level by choosing the right cabinet millwork and hardware. Fayetteville Granite has some ideas on options that could help you create the beautiful kitchen space you desire.

Millwork traditionally refers to building design elements that were made completely out of wood. For most homeowners at the turn of the 20th century, all of the building elements of a house were made of wood. Today the term millwork can also include building elements made of other synthetic materials. In cabinetry and kitchen space design, some options include crown molding, scribes and valances. Crown molding millwork joins the top of your cabinets to the ceiling to create a smooth, elegant look. Scribes are small pieces of molding that fill in gaps between the cabinets and appliances or ceilings. Millwork valances are attached to the bottom of cabinets to hide lighting and any unfinished space.

When it comes to hardware on their cabinets, homeowners have an array of options to choose from, including hardware design and colors. Kitchens can be transformed with a simple design change in the knobs and pulls on cabinets and drawers. When considering the aesthetic you are hoping to achieve in your kitchen, do not forget the knobs and pulls. They can really make a kitchen space pop. Also consider the functionality of your cabinets and drawers by choosing high quality guides for drawers and concealed hinges for your cabinets.

Many homeowners underestimate how much their cabinets and cabinet hardware choices can contribute to the overall look of their kitchen spaces.
