Think of kitchen hardware as the cherry on the ice cream sundae. It is the completion of any good design and can make it look completely different than it did before. Nickel and steel are two finishes that continue to add value to a home when added, and especially in the kitchen. One simply cannot go wrong when choosing these finishes for hardware upon their shaker cabinets in any color or stain.
Standard cabinets are usually framed, meaning that the door and drawers are attached to a front frame. However, European, or frameless cabinetry, has been rising in popularity in recent years. In this option, the door and drawers are fastened directly to the box. The lack of a front face can lead to reduced strength of the structure, so experts recommend avoiding cheap materials such as particle board and instead using more substantial wood.
Walnut is sought after for its tight, graceful grain and light complexion. Hardwoods like pecan and walnut are more difficult to stain, but you can‘t beat their durability and resistance to blemishes. In addition to types of lumber, you can consider characteristics of the wood itself that might enhance your space. Characteristics can add visual interests to your custom cabinets and provide a more "natural" or "earthy" feel to them. Some common characteristics are bird pecks, sugar tracks, wormholes, burls, mineral tracks, and knots. These traits are unique to each individual tree.
Since shaker cabinets are known for clean and beautiful lines, they work perfect with simple designs in hardware, however ornate knobs and pulls can be fun as well. Add a retro flair with white shaker cabinets or inset versions with exposed hinges for a fun look. Brass is a tough but brilliant finish to combine with shaker cabinets. Anyone that is looking for a warm, welcoming kitchen will be pleased with the addition of brass pulls. Add them in with stainless steel appliances and counter tops, industrial elements, dark or medium stained cabinets and even subway tiles just to present a few ideas.
Custom black rta cabinets will add a sleek look to any modern home. This color will not show every single smudge or fingerprint, letting homeowners wipe them down when they have the time to instead of when they can see the dirty smudges.
