You love the look of glass-front cabinets, but you don’t like the idea of having the items in your kitchen cupboard exposed. What can you do? One option is to add a beautiful, free-standing cabinet with a glass door to the kitchen. This becomes the ideal space to show off your favorite serving bowls, seasonal items and even your cherished heirloom pitcher that’s been passed down through the generations. The items are neatly displayed while being protected behind glass.
There are plenty of tricks that can help you expand the appearance of depth, height and width in your kitchen, and the best way to start is at the bottom. Firstly, make sure that floor boards run lengthwise, to create the illusion of a longer kitchen space. If you plan to feature a backsplash or other wall design, consider arranging the tiles in opposition to the floorboards' orientation—this will help to create the illusion of depth in the space. Finally, consider raising cabinets or appliances off the floor—if they're flush, the entire space will seem shorter, but raising them slightly will give the appearance of a space with more height.
Tuscan kitchen cabinets are predominantly made of quality woods such as cherry or maple. They tend to be stained into rich brown colors to evoke a natural feel while conveying a sophisticated elegance. Cabinet doors tend to have raised panels and decorative wood accents such as ornate hoods, shelves and cornices.
Shaker cabinets are often left with a natural wood finish, or they can be stained to bring out the natural wood hues in darker colors. Shaker cabinets painted white or gray are also popular in modern kitchens as they give off a light and airy feel that many contemporary homeowners seek. Shaker cabinets are often paired in modern kitchens with white or light granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and modern hardware to complete the look.
