Cabinetry! Not Just for Kitchens and Bathrooms

When it comes to designing spaces with cabinetry most people immediately think of kitchens and bathrooms, but you shouldn’t overlook other areas of the home that would benefit from the beauty and organizational features of cabinetry.  To create a home that truly fits you and your lifestyle, using customized cabinetry and millwork in other areas helps to tie an entire house design together while adding additional function and storage to your home.

Add Function and Storage to Any Room with Cabinetry

There are so many ways to incorporate cabinetry in other areas of the home to create architectural beauty as well as functional storage.  Because cabinetry can be crafted in almost any shape or size, with moldings and valances added to create rich architectural details, designers look beyond the kitchen and bath to create storage solutions and built-in cabinetry.

Create Custom Furniture Pieces with Cabinetry

Are you finding it difficult to find the perfect furniture piece for your room? You can create almost any type of furniture piece from semi-custom or custom cabinetry. The width, height, and depth can be modified to your particular space and configured for your storage needs. With Dura Supreme Cabinetry, you can create the ideal storage that works for you that is also beautifully styled in the door style, wood species, and finish that you desire.

What elevates standard cabinetry to a more furniture look are the details that are designed into the piece.  Decorative toe spaces or some type of bun foot instead of a standard toe kick 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.

What other rooms can incorporate cabinetry in their design?

There are many rooms and areas of the home that frequently use cabinetry to optimize the performance of the interior design. Here are a few of the popular areas that also use cabinetry beyond the kitchen and bathroom…
