After admiring all of these unique cabinet styles, you are surely having trouble deciding what appeals to you most. Why not try a mixture of all of them? Even in a minimalist interior you can mix up the palette a bit. Why not try lower wood cabinets in combination with upper white lacquered ones? Or veneered walnut cabinet side panels with shiny lacquered faces? Or stainless steel floating upper shelves with painted lower wood cabinets.
A few wooden floating shelves in combination with a glass backsplash or shiny subway tile backsplash will take your kitchen from blah to breathtaking! The only downside of floating shelves is the lack of hidden storage. It takes a very organized person to keep these open units from becoming cluttered and unsightly.
Nothing says sleek and modern more than stainless steel. Most homeowners are opting for stainless steel appliances, even in their country-style kitchens. In order to make this trend completely contemporary, try adding steel kitchen cabinets. Your kitchen will be a stylish modern mecca when outfitted with stainless steel cabinet doors. Aside from the high-end look, stainless steel cabinetry comes with some ups and downs. The down part is obvious, the fingerprints and potential for scratches.
Select colors correctly - Because of the importance of having wood cabinets painted properly, you also want to ensure pick the right color. There are virtually hundreds of "white" paint choices. Keep in mind also that lighting plays a major role in how paint will look in the final space. Perhaps you should consider taping a paint swatch on the front of each cabinet as-well as looking at it over an extended period of time to see how it will eventually look.
While all of these points should be taken into consideration, the most important question to ask really is "What is the kitchen's role in your family's life?" Is it truly the heart of your home? Do you use this space to entertain? Do you cook a–lot? If you're the one that will be spending a lot of time in this space, you should love it also have an efficient use for it.
