Looking for a craftsman inspired kitchen? Can you have that with RTA cabinets? Yes. When designing your kitchen don’t forget to think about decorative add-ons and finishes. The detailed finishes on cabinets, under cabinets, and above cabinets are the features that make your layout truly unique to you.
Decorative legs are especially valuable to give your kitchen design a custom feel without the custom cost. We all want to have our cabinet cake and eat it to. A few finishes like this accent the features of your cabinet profiles so they really stand out, giving your kitchen the custom craftsman look-and-feel. Read on for more information…
Some kitchen owners are wise enough to turn accessory legs into valuable works of art. They accomplish this by including design elements that have a big impact on the feel of the space. Adding cabinet trim and moulding completes the “framing” of the cabinets in a way that truly makes them stand out.
Some accessories function as a design, while others add protection and durability to your kitchen cabinets. Some accessories can also be used to add durability and functionality of the kitchen cabinets.
Dress up a center island or perimeter cabinets with decorative legs at the corners. Notice the sink base below is kicked out so that the legs can add styling and a dimension not otherwise had. The decorative leg in this kitchen is also a partner to the countertop detail. Notice how the countertop was carried out and around the top of the leg, creating a specific focal detail. There are many ideas you can implement to complement your kitchen designs. Keep checking our blog posts for ideas.
One aspect to keep in mind when adding a decorative leg is that you will need additional funds for both the add-ons and the countertop. Your countertop square footage will have to increase, adding to your overall cost. Since we have state-of-the-art waterjet cutting for our custom countertops, we actually reduce the overall cost since we can provide both the cabinetry and countertops (if you live in Southern California).
Of course, anytime you have a question you can contact us and we’ll help you navigate the purchase of your cabinets on our website, or you can check our FAQs. Notice, though, and it is a good reminder to remember, that your finishes and trim add a lot to the final look and feel you accomplish in your design.
