It would be great if the world revolved all-around you? Unfortunately, the realities of everyday life and your lack of gravitational pull make that impossible (no offense). So when the time comes to explore the limitless possibilities of cabinet design, you should make like the sun: Consider yourself the center of the universe for a little while and choose a cabinet design that lets–you shine.
But what actually does that entail? In short, it's about using cabinet design to showcase your strengths and mask your... well... developmental opportunities. And in the process, your choices can make some powerful statements about you.
"Look at what exactly ELSE I've done"
What's the point of being an over-achiever and keeping it under wraps? Thanks to the numerous options available to you for cabinet design, you do not have to. If you possess a number of different items that are flaunt-worthy, you can use a variety of cabinet design approaches to give them their due.
For a vintage look to your cabinet design, try leaded a glass panels with some artistic detailing.
If you're one of those people who march to a different drummer, chicken-wire door inserts are hard to beat. They still allow your items to be the focal point of your cabinet design, but in a creative way that might earn additional accolades while complementing cottage and country decors.
"Look at‐it this way"
So you love everything about your dream home except the long stretch of mundane cabinets in the kitchen. If you're not ready for a complete remodel, you can still preserve your reputation as a design diva with a unique cabinet design. Switch some of your existing cabinet doors for tambour doors that slide up, creating an "appliance garage" that is easily accessible and hard to ignore. Instead of lamenting the ordinary, your guests will heap praise on the creative cabinet design and, by extension, on you. And–well they should.
We don't acquire a lot of chances to perform at our best and soak up the applause, so when we do, we need to make the most of it. With the proper choice of cabinet design, you can place yourself squarely in the spotlight and take a few bows while you're there. So maybe the world won't revolve close to you, but when it comes to being the center of attention, why should the sun have all the fun?
