Similar to contemporary kitchen cabinets, the modern style typically makes use of man made and synthetic materials like plastic, metal, glass and concrete or in some cases, mixed materials. Modern kitchen cabinets are also usually finished with laminates, wood veneers or frosted glass panels. Wood is also used in this style, but instead of using one type, modern kitchen cabinets style combines different finishes. Prominent horizontal graining patterns are also prevalent for this style. When it comes to color, natural wood and bold colors are part of the palette. Bold accents like deep reds, oranges, green and blue are also added to give a splash of color.
Nickel chrome has a matte appearance and its color is darker than polished nickel. Characterized by its muted color and sophisticated aesthetics, nickel chrome cabinet hardware are typically used for classic and rustic kitchen settings. This type of cabinet hardware finish works best with soft or light colored cabinetry because it creates contrast. Also, light backgrounds allow the natural color of nickel chrome hardware to stand out.
The primary consideration for kitchen cabinet interior shelves is the strength. These interior or inner shelves hold up a lot of weight from storing stacks of dinnerware, pots and pans or glassware. With such, they must be able to stand up to the weight and wear and tear of daily use. The minimum thickness for cabinet shelving is ½ inches, but ¾ inches is more preferred. The depth of the cabinet shelving may either be full or half, but the former is more advisable since it allows you to maximize your kitchen cabinets storage capacity.
The Tuscan kitchen style originated in the countryside of Italy. This type of kitchen design puts emphasis on culinary traditions, projecting warmth, welcome and a cozy homelike vibe. This type of kitchen explores the joys of cooking and eating. In general, tuscan kitchen cabinets evoke a Mediterranean feel. The primary material used for Tuscan Kitchen cabinets are high quality hardwoods like maple and cherry. To project a sense of warmth, deep, rich brown stains are used as its finishing material. Metals like bronze, copper, brass and iron are also typically used as a complement to the rich natural wood. Backsplashes are often accentuated with handpainted Italian tiles which have warm accents such as shades of browns and mustard. Deep greens and dark reds are also commonly used to add a splash of color that brightens up the space. These vivid accents are also sometimes used as a cabinet color to evoke more life and warmth in a Tuscan Kitchen design.
