Good morning, chic readers! We hope your Thursday is off to a great start! We’re pondering our favorite cabinet styles today. Few decisions in a kitchen are as major, as expensive or have as big of an impact, so it’s one of those ones that is important to get right!

If you’re looking for something simply elegant without too much fuss for your kitchen cabinet remodel, flat paneled cabinets are a perfect choice.

One of our favorite kitchen styles is a combination of glass-front cabinets and closed cabinets. Glass front cabinets are perfect for display, but it’s nice to have a few to hide messier items behind as well!

Sometimes our favorite cabinets are… no cabinets at all! We love open shelving as a chic and inexpensive alternative to upper cabinets. So cute!

You know we love white kitchens, so, to us, you can never go wrong with white cabinets.

But dark wood is also a stunning look that creates depth, warmth and contrast in a kitchen.

Love the wood feel but want just a touch? Light wood is such a pretty choice, and these light wood open shelves give just a hint of wood without being too dark.

Dark painted cabinets can make a kitchen feel dark and heavy, but, when paired with light floors, backsplash and tons of light, they’re such a perfect choice!

So, sure, we love white and wood, but there’s nothing like colored cabinets to add instant personality and fun in a kitchen. Especially in a vacation home, when you pick the right shade you really can’t go wrong!

Can’t make up your mind? We totally understand! Why not mix and match? It’s the best of both worlds and gives any kitchen a totally custom feel.

Kitchen Organization for the New Year

Good morning, chic readers and Happy Martin Luther King Day! If there’s any day to reflect on the lives we want to lead and the people we want to become, it’s today.

Cantley & Co

 

On the heels of New Year’s, we are slowly addressing our New Year’s Resolutions. Some of them change from year to year, but, alas, some of them are the same.

But maybe that’s because they are less like resolutions and more things that we keep needing to address year after year to keep everything in our houses running smoothly.

Kitchen organization is something we’re constantly refining, editing and trying to make better than it was the year before.

On my list this year is getting new glassware. I don’t know what happens, but I guess over a period of being married for ten years, glasses have gotten broken, new ones have come in a few at a time, and it’s just time for a clean sweep. We have glass kitchen cabinets like these, so it’s very important that everything match!

Now this is a necessity. We love, love, love using linens, and this would make using them in the kitchen such a breeze!

If you know us, you know we love books. Cookbooks are no exception! This is great catch-all storage, an organized version of the junk drawer. We don’t know about you, but, no matter how we try, we still have one!

Pretty cabinets make for great storage!

10 Ways to Add Character to Your Kitchen

Anne Decker Architect

 

When it comes to kitchens, we spend a lot of time thinking about the usual things. White or stainless appliances? Wood or white cabinets? Wood or tile floors? Beyond the basics, there are so many ways to make the heart of the home warm, welcoming and absolutely you. Take a peek at a few of our favorite ways to add character to the kitchen!

1. Beautiful beams. Beams instantly lend a rustic feel, interest on the ceiling and, we think, an overall cozy feeling!

2. Add an arch. In the kitchen, the little things are everything. Arches are one of our favorite architectural details that create instant charm.

3.  Lend a personal touch with luxurious kitchenware. From china to silverware, serving trays to accessories, kitchenware is a fabulous way to express yourself in the heart of the home.

4. Use a pot rack. Not only is a pot rack a convenient way to free up cabinet space, but it also looks fabulous.

5. Install statement lighting. A splash of color or a fun metallic can become an instant focal point in a kitchen.

6. Accent with natural stone. Natural stone is a beautiful touch in a kitchen. This honed marble is absolutely stunning!

7. Hang your favorite art. In the land of appliances and cookware, art may not be a top priority but a well-placed piece or two adds tons of personality!

8. Display serveware with glass front cabinets. Glass front cabinets feel light, open and airy and are a great way to display favorite service pieces, china, wine glasses or family silver.

9. Paint cabinets a signature color. In a world where neutral cabinets are the norm, painting cabinets a statement color is a way to instantly set your kitchen apart.

10. Make a splash with your range hood. From a simple microwave vent to something truly spectacular, there are so many ways to vent your kitchen. A unique, beautiful range hood like this one adds so much impact.

What is your favorite way to add character to your kitchen? Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day!
