Finding Inspiration for Your Kitchen Cabinet Doors
When installing bespoke wood kitchen cabinet doors in your home, the possibilities for unique or personal designs are
The opportunity to have completely original cabinetry tailored to your own taste is of course one of the main reasons for choosing bespoke woodwork, and most people have some
idea of how they would like the final pieces to look.
However, what of those people who aren't really sure what they want? Or of those who, despite knowing that anything
is possible, find themselves bereft of inspiration?
Investing in new kitchen cabinet doors isn't something people like to do too often, which means all potential design
avenues should be explored before the manufacturing commences. Unless you are already certain you know what
you want your new cabinetry to look like, it's highly advisable to spend some time getting ideas and inspiration
from a few different sources.
Look around you
If you've ever wondered where the best place to look for creative inspiration is, the answer is quite simple:
Some people like to browse interior design magazines or websites for ideas. Others take mental notes when visiting
the homes of friends and family. While this is a very effective way to get inspiration for your own kitchen cabinet doors, it can easily result in your kitchen resembling that of
those you visited.
For a more personal look, think about the design of items you already love; whether you own it or not. It may be a
painting or other piece of art already in your home. It may be a style of light fitting that shone or a tile design that
resonated during your visit to a store.
Wherever you find it, inspiration from objects you covet can lead to a unique kitchen you fall in love with.
Color yourself happyDespite bespoke wood kitchen cabinet doors looking great with a natural finish, adding a splash of color can really set
a kitchen off.The best colors to use depend entirely on yourself and what
the kitchen will mainly be used for. For nature lovers, green tones reflect an affinity with the world around us. Those with a passion for the ocean may choose aquamarine
shades while people with more elegant sensibilities could opt for a graceful white.
If the space is primarily used as the epicenter of house parties, vibrantly painted kitchen cabinet doors can help to
keep the atmosphere upbeat. However, if the kitchen is more likely to see lazy coffee mornings, it may be wise to
opt for shades that are easier on the eyes.
Storing your inspirationModern kitchen design is a mixture of many elements, and among the most practical developments are the innovative
ways storage space is being maximized.The aesthetics of your kitchen cabinet doors are the first thing
people will notice when they enter the room, but smartly designed cabinetry, allowing for ever more creative use of space available, could well be your favorite aspect of your
new kitchen.From diagonally sliding corner drawers to hidden trash and recycling receptacles, and pullout shelves to upright utensil
compartments, researching the groundbreaking space-saving genius of smart cabinet design could well lead to finding more inspiration than can be incorporated in your
Not that this is a bad thing, of course. Recognizing and choosing the innovations that best suit your lifestyle is part
of the fun.
The manufacturers of your bespoke wood kitchen cabinet doors will be full of helpful design suggestions to help you create your ideal kitchen. However, to make it a place that
really speaks to you, finding your own inspiration too is recommended.
By observing what's already in your life, thinking about what colors mean to you and considering what storage
innovations would be most useful, you're likely to find yourself with a kitchen that you truly love.
