10 Ultra-Chic Kitchen Cabinet Styles

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.

Sage Design

 

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!

This is the coolest knife storage ever and makes such great use of the space!

Delicious. There’s nothing else to say!

Happy Monday, everyone! Did you have fun watching the Super Bowl (commercials) last night?

kitchen

 I felt like a real grown-up because we watched the first little bit of the game with friends and their kids. And it was sort of neat to see everyone all together like that, surrounded by little ones. Little Will called it the “championship game” and was very excited about the whole thing. He repeated what all the dads said about first downs and field goals.

 You know we love a light, bright kitchen, full of sparkling surfaces and paint.

One Room Challenge Kitchen!

 Hold onto your hats, one room challengers! We are so excited to be participating in our first ever One Room Challenge, hosted by the fabulous, lovely and amazing Linda from Calling it Home. Thanks so much for having us, Linda! You may need to shield your eyes on the next couple of photos. Because redoing this kitchen is going to be a bit of a project, to say the least…

 Basically no natural light, five layers of linoleum tile, crumbling plywood cabinets and faux-wood paneling… It’s really hard to choose a favorite thing about this “before” kitchen.

Kitchen Stools

Kitchen stools are honestly one of our favorite parts of the kitchen.  Don’t get us wrong, we love having the family together around a big table.But we know for sure that that doesn’t always happen in our houses. (Well, at least not at breakfast…)

 So it just makes sense for everyone to have a place to congregate and eat during the rush of morning breakfast and coffee and forgotten homework and searching for that thing you were supposed to take to work but you just can’t exactly remember what it is…

 Anyway, all of that just can’t happen around a dining room table.

 So, we would venture to say that kitchen stools really help keep families together!

 Wren Living has a favorite kitchen set up of ours!

 That may seem like a big job for a little stool.

 But, when the stools are as stylish as all of these, we think they’re up to the task! What about you?

Do you have big Memorial Day plans? We’re so excited for a little rest and a lot of fun in the sun! Thanks for stopping by today!
