Use glass doors for your floor-to-ceiling cabinets to give the illusion of more space in your kitchen. It also helps create more light.

There is a lot of stuff in a kitchen. Most of it is hidden behind solid wood cabinet doors, but wall-to-wall cabinets can be a bit claustrophobic, and make your kitchen feel stuffy and small. Even if you choose a bright, lively color, you’re still taking up a lot of space with your cabinetry.

Break up the cabinets by adding a few open shelves to display the fine china or quirky, colorful, items that can bring personality to your kitchen.

Besides shelving, talk to our casework designers about kitchen cabinets with a glass door so that you can see what is inside the cabinet. Yes, it means you are going to be selective about what you put behind the glass door because it’s going to be visible, but glass doors is a clever way to open up your kitchen.

Glass will also help reflect more light, giving your kitchen a fresh, modern feeling.

Floor-to-ceiling cabinets

If you are going for the floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, it is especially important to play with textures and materials so that you don’t just get one single color from floor to ceiling.

Play with materials, colors, shapes, and levels to make your kitchen interesting and architectural. You don’t want your kitchen to be too busy, but a few bold colors or a unique countertop can give your kitchen that extra pop that will wow all of your friends and neighbors.

Make sure cabinets aren’t blocking natural light sources, but use materials that will enhance natural light.

To show or not to show appliances

As beautiful and smart as our kitchen appliances are, too many appliances can give the impression of clutter. If you have a small kitchen, think about hiding the refrigerator, toaster oven, or microwave behind custom casework. Hiding away appliances will keep your kitchen design cohesive.

    I love the idea of cabinets with a a glass door. I was think that houses looked fancier with open cabinet doors, especially when you have nice kitchen sets to show off. I’ll have to talk to my husband and see if he would like to have our cabinets re done.

    I like your advice on using floor-to-ceiling cabinets to add some variety. I think when you are designing it is important to consider all your options and what would fit best in your kitchen. You are going to want to be sure and stay within your budget as well.

    That will make our kitchen so beautiful, by changing up the textures and materials so that we don’t have a single color from floor to ceiling. We want wood cabinets for sure, so maybe if we mixed that with a different color of the cabinet, it will break up the solid wall perfectly. We’ll keep these ideas in mind as we look into our custom wood cabinet options.

    Thanks for going over some design tips for cabinetry. I appreciate that you mentioned that you should play with different kinds of materials and colors, but not make it too busy. I’m a bit interested to learn some more about this, and maybe see what designs that people have utilized. Plus, it could be good to know some general tactics for making a sure that a kitchen is not too busy. Maybe it could be beneficial to try an sketch out what it could look like.
