Get the information you need on cherry kitchen cabinets, a popular and beautiful wood choice for your kitchen design.

When planning a kitchen installation or renovation, you’ll need to decide on your kitchen cabinet materials. Wood is a common material in kitchen cabinetry today, and cherry kitchen cabinets are among the most popular options.

Cherry kitchen cabinets are a favorite because of their warm tones and rich look. Cherry tends to have predominantly red undertones; however, it can range in color from pale yellow to deep brown. The texture of cherry wood is smooth and satiny, which allows it to accept stain beautifully. Another reason for its popularity is that it matures over time and changes in color. Cherry wood becomes warmer and richer as it’s exposed to the air—a feature many homeowners seek out when choosing wood cabinets for their kitchen.

Cherry wood also shows a beautiful fine grain that gives cabinets character and unique personality. The pattern of the grain tends to be circular; once it’s stained, cherry shows an even-toned finish. It is moderately heavy and strong, which makes it durable and able to withstand the wear and tear of everyday cabinet use.

Cherry cabinets, while not as expensive as other premium woods such as mahogany, are more costly than certain lighter woods or cabinets made from particleboard. If you want the look of cherry cabinets but can’t fit them into your budget, you may want to consider maple or another of the darker woods. Another option is to purchase cabinets made out of one of the less expensive wood materials and have them stained a cherry color. The actual cost of cherry kitchen cabinets will depend on the number of cabinets needed in your design and whether you are able to buy stock cabinets or if you need to have them custom built to fit into your design space.

Kitchen Cabinet Installers and where to find them

Kitchen Cabinet Installer Columbus Dublin Worthington Ohio

Looking for Kitchen Cabinet Installers in your area? It’s best to use the same company to measure, build and install your kitchen cabinetry.

The options are seemingly endless when you’re shopping for cabinetry for a kitchen or bathroom remodel. Manufacturers sell cabinets through a retail network including building supply stores, kitchen and bath retailers and home improvement centers, such as Lowes and Home Depot.

It’s advisable to enlist the same company to measure, design, purchase and install cabinetry, whether you buy through a big box store or a custom cabinet maker. “The most important thing is to allow the same person or company who designs the cabinets to also install them,” says Ohio-based builder Alex. “If you don’t and mistakes are made, installation costs quickly go way up. If you come across a cabinet maker who does not install, go with another company.”

“Measurements are so important. Just an inch is enough to throw off the fit,” says home improvement center specialist. “It’s important and convenient to let your retailer take the measurements, design the plan and handle the install. This ensures you won’t be responsible for any measurement or other oversights.”

Once ordered, the turnaround time for kitchen cabinetry can be anywhere from one day to several months. Semi-custom orders take around six weeks to arrive and stock cabinetry delivery time is minimal, often with same day delivery. Plan on eight weeks or more for custom cabinetry. After the shipment arrives, ensure cabinets match the bill of sale.

“Installation methods vary from installer to installer but walls should be straight and primed, floors flat and everything square,” Alex says. Cabinet doors and drawers should be removed before installation and appliances to be installed should be on-site, in case any adjustments are necessary.

Installing new Kitchen Cabinets

Replacing existing cabinets is a serious endeavor, and one that should be carried out by a professional or a seasoned do-it-yourselfer. Removing existing kitchen cabinets is at least a two-man job, as cabinets and countertops can be extremely heavy and bulky.

If you plan to reuse the cabinets or countertops in some fashion, it’s vital to take extra care so you don’t damage the materials upon removal. Also, in the case of a DIY project, take special care so you don’t damage any of the surroundings that are to be salvaged, such as flooring, trim and walls.

When purchasing new cabinets, decide if you have the skill level and desire to do the job yourself or to have the cabinets installed professionally. Consider the amount of time available to finish the project, as well as the cost.

The average installation cost ranges from $131 to $198 per cabinet. Depending on material, countertops can cost from $4 to $200 per square foot. Stone and laminate countertops are an affordable option, while stainless steel or copper countertops are used in more high-end kitchen remodels.

Putting a fresh face on your kitchen is one of the best home investments you can make, whether that’s a complete kitchen remodel or just cabinet refacing. However, you should limit any project cost to no more than 20 percent of your home’s value. Kitchen investments come with about an 85 percent return on investment.

10 Eco Friendly Kitchen Remodeling Ideas

floating-open-shelves-for-kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of any home. It is the one place that handles it all – from the early morning madness to the relaxing late night dinners. The kitchen is a high-traffic area and thus need to have high volume. One of the trending way of giving this section of the home a modern touch is making it an eco-friendly place. If you are not a professional with redoing your kitchen, ask around for the modern kitchen designer or better yet, employ the service of a remodeling company. Here are several ideas that you might keep in mind for the next time you Remodel your Kitchen.

These days, we are all looking for ways every day to live in a more environmentally friendly way. To help you find that in the kitchen, here are 10 environmentally friendly kitchen remodeling ideas for you to consider:

Decreasing Energy

The kitchen is by far the room with the highest energy consumption; thus, reducing energy is a very good idea for having a “green” kitchen. You can make the room more energy efficient by finding ways to maximize the natural energy resources. For instance, you can improve the indoor air quality by having big enough windows as opposed to installing an AC. Another great idea is to opt to wash the dishes by hand rather than installing a dishwasher.

 

Modern Kitchen Storage Unique Open Shelving

Open Shelving

One of today’s most popular kitchen design trends is the movement towards open shelving. It requires less materials and in some cases, reclaimed wood is used to give the kitchen a very unique and distinctive feel.

 

Recycle, Reuse

Nothing speaks of having an eco-friendly room better than recycling and reusing materials. It might be that you find no use of certain things in the kitchen and other sections of the house. So how about finding other things for the other sections of the house that can recycle or reuse in the kitchen. Do not just remodel and end up throwing out more things that you are actually putting in; recycle and reuse.

Green Themed Décor

In as much as you will aim to use eco-friendly installations and appliances, you still have to contend with the décor. Hence, you need to extend the “green” theme to the kitchen décor. Consider getting décor accessories from environmentally conscious and friendly companies. From the tiles to the cabinets, shelves, and other installations that contribute to a “green” kitchen décor theme.

Hands Free Faucets

Hands free faucets help you to use less water and do so in a more hygienic way. But not having to touch anything when preparing food you have less chance of passing on germs and the faucets sensors quickly respond when hands or other items have been removed.

 

Re-purpose old furniture

Finding a new way of using the old furniture from another room in the house is a great way of giving the kitchen a new look. Sometimes, even the old kitchen furniture might just be needing a new coat of paint and a few touch-ups to give them a new look.

Recycling Center in your Cabinets

Paper, plastic, metal, glass…you should be recycling it! Whether you have room for 2 bins or 4, a pull out trash storage and recycling center cabinet allows you to easily separate recyclables and insure they don’t go somewhere to sit in a landfill for the next 50 years.

 

Indoor Herb Garden

Who doesn’t love fresh herbs year round? An indoor herb garden provides instant access to a natural food source, saves money, helps keep your indoor air quality healthier and can even provide subtle touches of aromatherapy and be a therapeutic resource as well as a food one.

Wood Cutting Boards

Replace plastic cutting boards with wood ones, particular regenerating species such as bamboo. Not only are the better for the environment, but studies have shown that wood cutting boards are less likely to contaminate food when used.

 

Do not skimp on Quality

While the general outlook about going green is a minimalistic approach in the use of resources, this does not mean that you minimize on quality. It would make little sense to have to tear down one green kitchen set up to put in another every few years. Doing this would only be a waste of the same energy and resources that you are striving to preserve. You can always contact us for a free no obligation consultation to see which options are best for your home and kitchen remodel.


Even changes to the smallest of behaviors can help in the fight for a better environment. Don’t stop at a few kitchen ideas. Earth Day is every day! Look for little (and big) things you can do today and every day to help the environment and make every day a little better, brighter and greener.

Kitchen Design Ideas in 5 Shades of Green

Green-Kitchen-Design-Ideas-Remodeling-Renovation-by-General-Contractors

Kitchen Design takes many factors in consideration, especially when Remodeling your home. One aspect of the design is the color you will use. We believe the use of the color green could be beneficial in your kitchen design and remodel. Here is why,

Human eyes are more sensitive to green color frequencies than any other. The color shows up in our world more often than any other color that is visible to the human eye. It is the color between blue and yellow, two of the more energetic colors, on the spectrum of visible light. Green is the color most commonly associated with nature, life, youth, spring, and hope. Green is also the traditional color of safety and permission; a green light means to go ahead. Green is also associated with balance, growth, restoration, clarity and positive nature. Green in Europe and the United States is sometimes associated with status and prosperity.


Here are some of our favorite Green Color Kitchen Designs.

Whichever reason stands out the most for you personally, choosing a green color would be beneficial for your Kitchen Design.

Emerald

Emerald-kitchen-cabinets-design-remodeling-traditional-white-wood-hood-island-countertop

Emerald is a brilliant green, like that of the gemstone from which it takes its name.
Perhaps because of the rarity of the gemstone, emerald as a color name is often used to connote an exquisite or precious quality, as in Emerald Isle, a poetic name for Ireland made popular by the Irish writer William Drennan in his poem “When Erin First Rose.” Emerald can also refer to a size of type in printing and a small, bright green hummingbird.
Emerald would be best used in the back-splash or the counter-top in your new kitchen.

Jade

Jade-green-kitchen-cabinets-design-remodeling-traditional-island-marble-countertop

Jade is a shade of green, varying from bluish green to yellowish green that takes its name from the ornamental stone highly esteemed for carvings and jewelry.

Jade would go well whether you use it as the wall color or as the kitchen cabinets in your kitchen design.

Olive

Olive-Green-Sage-Kitchen-Cabinets-Design-Remodeling-Modern-traditional-island

Olive is an ocher green or dull yellow green, as of the unripe olive fruit. The word olive comes to us from the Greek elaia. Olive is often used to describe a Mediterranean complexion. Olive drab refers to a grayish green, and has been used to refer to uniforms of the U.S. Army. Olive has a shade of grey that goes very well with any mix of colors.

Hunter Green

Hunter-green-kitchen-cabinets-design-remodeling-contractor-solid-wood-countertop

Hunter green, sometimes called hunter’s green, is a dark green of yellowish cast. The name emerged in the late 1800s, when it was the favored color of dress among hunters.

Hunter green must now compete with a range of color and design options, such as olive drab and camouflage, for the favored position in the hunter’s wardrobe or a rustic kitchen.

Shamrock

Shamrock-green-kitchen-cabinets-wall-color-design-remodeling-contractor-grade-countertops

The favorite this week would have to be the shamrock or lucky green. It is a popular color for many reasons.
The choice shade of green for St. Patrick’s Day, the color shamrock takes its name from the national emblem for Ireland. The word shamrock is from Irish word seamróg for “clover.”
This green color is vibrant and could go along with many different color choices in your new kitchen design.

Kitchens are certainly the heart of today’s homes, so you definitely want your kitchen to look its best. Even if you aren’t in the market for a total remodel or renovation, one or two trendy updates will bring your kitchen up to date and into 2016.

Cabinet Kitchen Design

Gray is the New White
Wondering what color to choose for your cabinets? The kitchen industry’s leading manufacturers say that while white cabinets continue to be tops, gray is the shade they’re betting on to break white’s top spot. If you are looking for a trendy kitchen in Grey Shaker Style, then West Point Grey Kitchen Cabinets are your answer. This grey offers some warm undertones to help keep it from looking gloomy in your kitchen. The cabinet box comes with a matching grey interior and comes fully upgraded!

Classic Black and White Palette
The look may change as styles evolve, but the appeal of a black-and-white kitchen never dies. It’s all about high contrast — like this design in Ice White Shaker kitchen cabinets (from SemBro Designs) and Absolute Black granite countertops, but it also benefits from the tension between country and modern. Warm rustic hardwood floors are an effective counterpoint to sleek cabinet materials. As mentioned above the kitchen in West Point Grey is showcasing yet another kitchen trend — combining cabinet colors is a trendy look that’s holding strong.

To remedy this, manufacturers are doubling up storage in new, custom kitchens with clever multi-tiered drawers.

Sink Kitchen Design

Fresh Hues and Timeless Farmhouse Flair for Sinks
Like kitchen cabinets, sinks are trending away from basic white or stainless steel. This eye-catching fluted fireclay apron-farmhouse kitchen sink by Mitrani is definitely unique. Also a colorful sink is a great way to pop in a small amount of color in a neutral kitchen or make it more of a focal point by using the same hue in the backsplash.

Kohler’s apron-front cast-iron kitchen sinks come in a variety of colors, including new neutral tones Dune, a soft sandy shade, and Suede, a dark hue that pairs well with granite countertops. Apron-front sinks have not gone out of style. They add a timeless focal point to any kitchen. From a practical standpoint, they’re deep enough to hold large pots and platters for easier cleanup — a shorter person can even benefit from better access to the sink. Because of their visual weight, apron-front sinks are best suited to medium-size or large kitchens.

Add in Automation to your kitchen sink. The kitchen of the future is here today. From sensor-activated lights that illuminate the kitchen only when it’s in use to meat thermometers that alert your smartphone when dinner is done, kitchen technology is here to make your life easier. If you’re new to automation, a great introductory product is a hands-free motion sensor faucet by Moen. Perfect for homes with small children who can’t yet reach the handle or any kitchen where busy cooks often have sticky hands.

Countertops Kitchen Design

New Colors for Quartz
Along with natural stone, quartz countertops continue to be tops. Quartz kitchen countertops subtle color gradation lends itself well to sleek contemporary designs. Nonporous and are resistant to heat, quartz countertops are also resistant to spills and scratches, making them a smart choice for families or busy cooks, and a perfect choice for your kitchen remodel.

You can also save money with a look-alike countertop materials. Countertops continue to define a kitchen’s style — but they don’t have to be a budget-buster. The granite look-alike from Wilsonart is actually laminate but unlike previous laminate countertops features a more realistic, larger stone pattern and rounded edge for a high-end granite look at a fraction of the price.

Mix your Countertop Materials, if you’re in the market for a fashion-forward kitchen countertop, granite, quartz and laminate are no longer your only choices. Wood countertops are coming on strong. You could have a kitchen that combines the warmth of wood with a cool marble for the best of both worlds.

Kitchen Style and Decor

Marry the Kitchen to Your Home’s Style
Gone are the days when kitchens were just kitchens — now they’re so pretty they could be any room of the house, says designer Jo Ann Alston of her French Normandy-style design. Jo Ann integrated the appliances for a seamless look and combined light fixtures with different styles and finishes to give the look of having been acquired over time rather than purchased all at once. The mixed gray and brown tones in the Chinese slate and oak flooring complement the island’s Jerusalem gold limestone countertop, offering a rich look that never strays far from a neutral color midpoint.

Keeping a flexible palette is ideal for any traditional or contemporary kitchen. Keeping a kitchen neutral allows you to personalize it to reflect your style, we have a kitchen in our showroom accessorized that way right now. The real treat in this otherwise traditional kitchen is the unexpected light fixtures and any other décor that suits your taste.
