Creating A Signature Look That is Uniquely Yours

Creating A Signature Look That is Uniquely Yours

Small details go a long way towards creating a custom look that is uniquely yours.

Building that dream room is certainly an exciting process. Yet it can be a long and tedious one, too. When it comes to cabinetry, oftentimes things like finish, door style, hardware and storage accessories are the key decisions and areas of focus in the design. However, if you are trying to create a signature look that is unique to you it is important not to overlook the smaller details.

Accent the Design with Corbels

Corbels are carved pieces of wood that were originally developed for support, but today are used almost exclusively in kitchens as a design element.

These corbels, on the wood range hood, both support the shelf and act as a decorative element that enhances this country kitchen.

There are many different types, styles and ways in which corbels can be used to enhance the look of a kitchen:

  • Under wall cabinets to add a custom look.
  • Under counter overhangs to add interest and elegance.
  • On spice cabinets as a unique way to open the door.
  • Underneath shelves as a more interesting support element.

Dress Up the Design with Legs

If you are looking for a way to add interest and appeal to an island, the kitchen sink area or maybe the space containing the oven, custom built legs are a great solution.

Adding custom built legs to your design is a great way to make your cabinetry look more like furniture. Adding legs at island ends or incorporating them into the cabinet layout in some fashion is a great way to achieve a true furniture feel.

Valances Add a Customized Look

A valance is a universal way to accessorize any arrangement of cabinetry or unique furniture design.

In this kitchen design, valances are used to seamlessly and elegantly continue the design throughout the space. It is also a great way to hide items from view, if that need arises. This decorative element adds a touch of elegant style to any traditional design.

Add Final Touches with Mouldings

Many homeowners are familiar with using crown moulding to allow a seamless transition between the wall cabinets and the ceiling.

Crown moulding creates a seamless transition between cabinetry and the ceiling for a complete look. Another way to add a little bit of extra detail and really make a statement is to incorporate fluted moulding.

Fluted moulding adds another level of detail to classic, traditional style ktichens that makes them stand out.

Don't forget about the smaller details of your kitchen remodel. Sometimes it's the decorative elements, that are all too often overlooked, that have the biggest impact. Small details go a long way towards creating a custom look that is uniquely yours.
