With the right material, door style and finish, your cabinets can be the highlight of your kitchen’s design. But if you’re looking for creative ways to personalize your kitchen and match its aesthetic to the rest of your home, KraftMaid has solutions for you. Here are 4 ways to add a personal touch to your kitchen cabinets.
1. CONTRASTING BACK
Available for a variety of door styles, contrasting backs can add color where you least expect it. They can stand alone as is, or you can highlight them with a glaze such as Coconut Glaze or Cinder Glaze.
2. CHALKBOARD INSERT
Add function and style to your cabinet door with a Chalkboard Insert. It’s great for giving kids an approved space to draw, keeping notes and schedules visible and keeping score on game nights. Plus, the chalkboard material comes on both the front and back so writing can happen on both this inside and outside of the cabinet.
3. DECORATIVE HARDWARE
There are seemingly endless options when it comes to your cabinets’ hardware. From pewter knobs to bronze pulls, hardware can be as intricate or minimalistic as you’d like while still fitting in with your kitchen’s aesthetic. Mixing and matching metals and materials is a popular design trend this year, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box.
4. GLASS DOORS AND LIGHTING
Glass doors add understated elegance to cabinetry and come in a variety of insert types, ranging from timeless classic to metallic and textured glass. Illuminate the contents of your cabinets with LED Puck Lights or LED Flexible Strip Tape Lights. Both of these lighting options are perfect for creating a dramatic, yet warm ambiance in your kitchen.
