How to create designer cabinetry for your kitchen

Designer cabinetry often appears to have been custom built for the kitchen where it is installed. A good starting point for your kitchen might be to purchase all wood cabinets from manufacturers such as Yorktowne Cabinetry, Merillat Cabinets, or DeWils Cabinetry. All wood cabinets offer numerous door designs, finish options such as glazing, and specialty cabinets that can set your kitchen apart from the rest. A few options you may want to consider that can help turn your cabinets into designer cabinetry:

  • Appliance cabinets. Oven and cook-top cabinets can help those appliances blend in with your kitchen design instead of standing alone. Refrigerator and dishwasher panels allow those appliances to become a part of your designer cabinetry.
  • Panels and moldings. Many kitchen layouts have places where end and rear cabinet panels are exposed. Turn your cabinets into designer cabinetry by installing profiled panels matching your cabinet doors in these locations and try a wider crown molding at the top of your wall cabinets for a custom look.
  • Hardware. A simple and inexpensive way to turn your kitchen cabinets into designer cabinetry is by installing stylish hardware instead of the stock items provided. Vendors offer cabinet hardware in many designs and materials such as brass, stainless steel and copper.

You can often turn your regular cabinets into designer cabinetry by adding a few touches to help make them appear to have been built for you and your home.
