3 Fun Ways to Customize Your Kitchen Cabinets

The work of skilled carpenters can transform your kitchen cabinets into a work of art. Although many homes go with a basic cabinet, there are things that you can do, with the help of a carpenter, to make your cabinets stand out. 

If done correctly, customized kitchen cabinets can give your kitchen the added flare that people will remember! Here are three fun ways to customize your kitchen cabinets.

Add Molding & Accent Features

One way to upgrade your kitchen is to add molding or accent features. Crown molding helps the different elements in the room flow together easily. You can also personalize cabinet panels with inlays, inserts, molding, and other customizations that make your cabinet doors stand out.

The trick is to pick something simple and understated so that it is an accent rather than a focal point. Little details go a long way in making your kitchen look unique while meeting the style of a classic kitchen.

Switch to Windowed Cabinet Doors

Cabinets are great for organizing glassware, dishware, small appliances, and more! But they can also leave your kitchen feeling claustrophobic and boxy. Try changing your solid cabinet doors to windowed glass panes. This will transform your kitchen into a more modern space.

There are several ways that you can incorporate windowed cabinet doors. One option is to use doors with glass (clear or textured) inserts. It makes your kitchen look more open while keeping things contained and separated within cabinets.

Another option is to use a mesh material like a thin wire mesh to fill the opening. You can be even more creative by finding a material that is not regularly used, like frosted glass! Try several options to see which one best fits your style.

Add Custom Storage Options Other Than Cabinets

Cabinets are great, but they are limited in what they can offer in terms of storage. By adding custom handcrafted storage solutions to your space, you can find a new way to express your style and aesthetic without compromising the convenience of functioning cabinets.

One idea that many people like to try is open shelving. Adding an open shelf for things you use often can be a functional and enjoyable accent. It will also reduce the number of times you have to open and close a cabinet.

Work With a Carpenter to Make Your Kitchen Fantastic

Customizing your cabinets can be fun, but you want to ensure the job is done right. There are structural elements you simply don’t want to get wrong, and minor inaccuracies can mess up the look and feel of your kitchen.
