Cabinetry: Not Just For Kitchens and Bathrooms
When it comes to cabinetry most people immediately think of kitchens and bathrooms. This is where the majority of cabinetry is installed, designed in such a way as to fit the space, function efficiently for the homeowner and give some style to what would otherwise be a nondescript room.
In the rest of the house there are more than likely stand alone furniture pieces. There might be a hutch or sideboard in the dining room, a bookcase or two in the home office, maybe a bench by the back door and a TV stand in the family room.
The positives about furniture are the pieces can be moved and rearranged. Or if your tastes change you can get rid of it and start over. But what if the space you have available and the furniture piece that you are looking for just don’t match up?
This is where your kitchen and bath designer can help. You can create almost any type of furniture storage piece from manufactured cabinetry. The width, height, and depth of a piece can be customized to your particular space. You can create the ideal storage that works for you in the door style, wood species and finish that you want.
What elevates standard cabinetry to a more furniture look are the details that are designed into the piece. Decorative toespaces or some type of bun foot instead of a standard toekick are easy ways to take away the basic cabinet look. Adding glass doors, wood tops, beaded backs or valances can also create a furniture feel. The choices are all yours. What you end up with is a unique piece, perfectly sized and customized for your space.
