A kitchen makeover is something that appeals to a lot of home owners. Some people can contract for a complete re-do, while others may need to do the work in stages. For those who are looking to add color to their kitchen or want to incorporate other custom kitchen ideas into their homes, talking to our expert designers at Dwell Custom Cabinetry is a great place to start.

Why Start With Color?

Color is one of the first things that people notice when they walk into the kitchen. When color changes, the whole feel of the room can change. A lot of little things can be changes, such as small appliances, towels, place mats, and decorative cutting boards and mats. However, custom cabinets typically take up a good deal of space in the kitchen. They can definitely play a role in brightening up a kitchen, especially when they are built to your specifications by Dwell Custom Cabinetry. One very popular idea is incorporating reclaimed wood into your kitchen decor. It gives a rustic feel that allows for a variety of interesting accents.

You Don’t Have to Color Your Cabinets

Enhancing the color scheme in your kitchen with color does not mean painting them blue, green, or yellow. In most cases, these are not the best custom kitchen ideas. One thing that is both popular and practical is trading in a few closed cabinets for open shelving. This combination can add a unique look and inspire many custom kitchen ideas when it comes to decorating.

For example, with open shelving you can display colorful dishes, cookbooks, and airtight canisters that go with your new color scheme. Updating some of the lighting in your kitchen can draw attention to these areas.

Clear But Closed

Not everyone feels comfortable with open shelving. Dwell Custom Cabinetry can help here as well by installing glass-front cabinets that set up the cabinet contents by basically framing them. Of course, these windows don’t have to be included in all the cabinets in the kitchen. One of the perks of having them custom made is that you get to decide how many glass or open cabinets you want to include and how many you want to be a more classic closed style. ¬†The actual size and placement of custom made cabinets do not need to be the same as a set standard, which means you have the opportunity to fit your cabinets around your life, instead of the other way around.
