Upscale cabinetry can do more than just enhance the appeal of your home…it can transform it into a place that rivals anything in Architectural Digest. Our highly skilled craftsmen at Dwell Custom Cabinetry have created upscale cabinetry for many high-end, luxury residences here in the Scottsdale and Phoenix area. And, we can do the same for your home, too.

The first question that inevitably comes up when thinking about upscale cabinetry is What kind of look are you going for? As you can imagine, the possibilities are almost endless. From traditional to contemporary and everything in between, you can go a number of different ways.

One factor than can naturally dictate the style of your upscale cabinetry is the style of your home. But in today’s interior design world, there are no hard and fast rules to décor. Just because the exterior of your home is more traditional does not mean that you can’t include some modern elements to your interior.

In an article featured in the architecture and design magazine, freshome, called “Why Mix and Matching Is Important In Your Interiors”, this exact concept is discussed. Here is an excerpt from the article:

Imagine if you walked into a room and every surface was covered in the exact same type of material in the exact same shade. After getting over the initial shock factor, you would likely find the room extremely boring. In this admittedly unlikely scenario, there’s nothing to keep you interested in the space, so it’s only natural for your eyes and mind to wander somewhere more engaging.

Contrast, which is what’s achieved by mixing and matching will provide visual interest. We tend to gravitate towards spaces that give our eyes multiple elements to examine within a cohesive whole, so keep this goal in mind when shopping for the items that will eventually fill your interiors.

When looking at upscale cabinetry, whether for a single room or your whole house, you can incorporate this design concept, as well. You can look at using different styles or different woods, but you do need to be careful not to go overboard. As it says in the freshome article, “when it comes to contrast, there is such thing as too much.”

Working with our expert design team at Dwell Custom Cabinetry, we can help you create a mix and match interior concept for your upscale cabinetry that will strike the perfect balance and present a harmonious look. And it will be uniquely yours.
