In any home remodel, the kitchen is a space that gets, and possibly deserves, the most attention. And what part of the kitchen gets a lot of attention? The cabinets.

It makes sense, right? On the surface, the purpose of the cabinets in any kitchen is for storage — small kitchen appliances, pots and pans, food, etc. But there’s also a functionality that you need from the cabinets.

You need to easily maneuver around the space to reach the right pot for making your famous chili, you need a drawer for Tupperware that is easy to access and organize, and you need to maximize the space so that supplies aren’t crammed into the cabinets.

Even further, and possibly most importantly, the cabinets serve an aesthetic purpose. The cabinets make up a majority of the overall look of your kitchen. They’re the first thing that a guest will notice when they walk into the room. So, if you’re planning on upgrading our cabinets, make sure you’re getting the storage, functionality, and aesthetics you want.

At Roughing it in Style, our furniture store can be your source for high-quality, beautiful, and functional rustic wood cabinets. Not sure what direction you want to go in? Visit one of our locations or give one of our interior designers a call and we’ll make sure that your kitchen cabinets are everything you want and need. To help you out in the meantime, here are some popular cabinet trends to consider for your kitchen.

Floor to Ceiling Cabinets

For an elegant and rich look in your kitchen, build out rustic wood cabinets that reach from floor to ceiling.

The lower half can be larger pull-out drawers to store appliances or linens, and the upper half can be standard cabinet doors to store dishes.

The overall look gives the kitchen a cohesive feel and gives you a chance to store a variety of products in one reachable area.

Customized Drawers

Every homeowner has probably fought to find an appropriate space for cookie sheets, muffin tins, and cutting boards. The large, flat pieces take up a significant amount of space and can be challenging to pull out of the cabinets easily. Even silverware drawers can be cumbersome and messy, requiring additional tools to keep the items separate. The solution? Customized drawers. At Roughing it in Style, our cabinet makers are passionate about craftsmanship and providing our clients with a design that fits your needs.

Mix and Match

When it comes to cabinets, it might have made sense to stick with the same color in the past. But with today’s cabinet design innovation, it’s the time to mix things up! For a unique kitchen, consider using one color for wall cabinets and a different color for the island cabinets. This gives you an opportunity to play with color and materials, including rustic wood cabinets for a warm and cozy feel.

Kitchen cabinet design can make or break the overall look and feel of the kitchen. Ensure that you have a completed kitchen design that you’re completely satisfied with.
