Design Resources & Inspiration

As one of the most used areas of any household it is important that the style, design and functionality be perfectly fitted for the needs of that household. Here we have a general list of tips, ideas and resources that can help you get the cabinetry you desire

Establish Room Size: The first steps in designing cabinetry for any room is to establish what you have to work with. Measure the room, including the height, and in most cases it will also be relevant to note the measurements of where the light switches, electrical sockets, etc. are located.

Establish Ideas: This is often the most difficult part, today there are so many styles and combinations available that there are seemingly endless great ideas for each individual case. The most practical way we've encountered to establish your own style and wants is through browsing multiple selections.

  1. Magazines are one option for this, as well as a generic internet search. However we've found that the best resource at your disposal is houzz.com. It is a website designed for helping you find the ideas and styles that best suit you. We do have a profile on this site at houzz.com though we encourage people to search everywhere on the site to find what works best for them. We would recommend that this option be included to help aid all the later options listed below.
  2. Another option to help establish your design would be to hire an interior designer, sit down and have in-depth discussions with them to determine your style.
  3. Yet another option is to use free services such as homestyler.com to get a general feel for what you may or may not like.
  4. In accordance with the last option you can also simply sketch out your ideas on paper and get a similar result.
  5. Last, but not least you can schedule a free consultation from us, we would be happy to help you establish your plans and style.

Establish Colors: The endless possibilities of colors. After style this is the greatest way to customize your project. People can be as unique or generic as you like. The important things to remember here is that when selecting your colors you should also be aware of your flooring color, wall colors, and potentially countertop or appliance colors. Another thing to consider is the possibility of two tone or even more colors for the project that you are considering.
