Kitchen Remodel Franklin & Spring Hill, TN
If you are thinking about remodeling your kitchen or updating your kitchen cabinets, you have, no doubt, asked the questions: Which door style and what color? You cannot go wrong with the white shaker door. It is a timeless classic for good reason. Crisp, white cabinets will instantly brighten up a room. You may be amazed at how much bigger and brighter your kitchen feels! The clean lines and understated design of the shaker door brings harmony to any style of kitchen whether it’s traditional, contemporary, or somewhere in between.
The Shaker door is named after the religious movement of the American Colonial Era in the 1770’s. The simple yet functional design replicates the furniture made by the Shakers-- who were extremely skilled craftsmen. The construction of the door consists of five pieces: four rails and a recessed panel. With two options for the drawer, you may choose the five-piece drawer front, which matches the door, for a traditional look. To add a modern touch, the slab drawer front is the way to go. However, not all shaker doors are alike. For a touch of personality, you may want to consider the beadboard panel, while a decorative trim balances the simplistic design with a bit of elegance.
Think of white cabinets as a ‘blank canvas’. Your color options will be endless. Better Homes & Gardens suggest using neutral tones for the foundation elements in your kitchen like the cabinets, countertops, flooring, and appliances. Introduce other accent colors on things like walls, back splashes, window treatments, and lighting. That way, you won’t break the bank when you are ready to change the color scheme of your kitchen.
Although white is among the top trending colors for kitchen cabinets, you might want to ‘shake’ things up a bit. Other trends involving white cabinets include white with dark (paint or stain) and white with grey. Mixing white cabinets with another color offers a stunning visual effect. It is also the perfect opportunity to highlight a focal point of your kitchen, such as an island or a specialty cabinet.
