Customize your kitchen cabinets with furniture-style details.
The right type of cabinet component can help refresh and add character to your kitchen’s style — whether you want brand-new cabinets or just need to revamp your old ones. But some design elements with the most impact may be small ones you haven’t even considered. Here are some details to integrate into your cabinets for a truly stylish design.
Take a basic kitchen up a notch with decorative add-ons that give cabinets a high-end look
There’s no end to the usefulness of this stand-alone armoire-style cupboard. The multiple drawers could contain table linens, silver, and serving pieces. And the upper level of the cabinet could easily house a large flat-screen TV. Cabinet-style cupboards feel like fine furniture, but offer all the amazing perks of modern cabinetry such as pullout storage and drawer dividers.
Surprising Turned-Leg Sink
Here’s a surprising look for a kitchen sink — intricately turned legs. The ornate legs and white-painted finish create a custom look. The chinoiserie-style fabric creates a skirt to hide undersink storage and tie the room’s color palette together.
These large doors appear to be cabinetry, but instead hide a pro-style refrigerator and freezer. Built-in overhead cabinets make this refrigerator and side storage ensemble feel like a large piece of fine furniture.
Bookshelf + Open Storage
Oh, what to do with all those cookbooks? This bright bookshelf/storage wall solves that problem with style. Simple cubbies above the books store single bottles of wine, and colorful baking and serving dishes are displayed on the shelves above.
A decorative painted exterior, ornate inlays, and tapered, carved feet make this stone-topped island look like an antique — but it’s not! This kitchen gets all the style of an antique piece of furniture with the hard-working practicality of an island.
Glass-front cabinets on the island add a custom look and mimic the look of a curio cabinet.
A series of small apothecary-style drawers and curved detail inset transforms standard cabinetry. Here, the beverage station feels like a stand-alone piece of furniture because of its staggered depths and sweet arched inset. Different heights (or finishes) make permanently installed furniture feel more freestanding — and more furniturelike.
A ceiling-hugging range hood (with spectacular crown molding) surrounded by inset cabinets takes center stage. Architectural add-ons, such as the corbel-supported mantel over the range, use furniture elements to make standard cabinetry look like they were custom-made.
You really can’t have enough drawers in a kitchen — especially in the cooking area. Here, a dresser-style cabinet contains stacks of drawers and serves as a room divider. The arched, floor-level cutout makes the kitchen cabinet feel like it has feet.
Furniture Details on Kitchen Cabinets
Architectural details on standard cabinetry give it a custom look. Here, crown molding and turned feet transform standard cupboards into a decorative asset in the kitchen. Search online for tons of stylish options.
Island with Table Legs
The tapered legs of this island add-on make it appear to be a piece of furniture. The marble top continues from the rest of the work space to create an unbroken look.
Added to the end of this island is a built-in bookcase. Beautiful trimwork showcases this as a deliberate addition to the kitchen — for beautiful and smart storage.
