Mountain Resort

Mountain Resort Cabinet Styles Perfect for the Rustic Kitchen

Soaring mountain peaks, rugged terrain and old pine forests appeal to a large audience of outdoor adventurers.  Regardless of whether your mountain experience includes skiing, fly-fishing, hiking or lounging by the fireplace, the majestic grandeur and awe of the mountains have inspired a unique, architectural style.

Rustic woods and equally rustic finishes are a notable feature of “Mountain” architecture.  A massive stone fireplace is another definitive focal point.  Furnishings are imposing and luxurious, design elements are grand scales and natural textures and surfaces (stone, wood, burnished metals, etc.) are expertly blended.

DOOR STYLES, WOODS & FINISHES

Wood species with an abundance of knots and character can be enhanced with heavily distressed finishes. Choose door styles that have visual weight, with applied molding or raised panels with profiled edges. For accent doors, leaded glass can be used to introduce an antiqued metal finish and a hand-blown glass into the kitchen design.

Design Elements

For “Mountain Resort” styling, the emphasis should be on architectural details with a grand scale and proportion.  Whether it’s a corbel detail, a turned post or a molding stack, endeavor to create visual weight and mass.  Use moldings generously (within a crown molding treatment, below a countertop or below wall cabinetry) to create a heavily sculpted appearance throughout the kitchen.
