This Columbus, Ohio homeowner envisioned her dream kitchen in a contemporary style. She built an addition to allow enough space for all of the must-haves on her list. One of the items on her list was dark wood cabinets with a contemporary door style. She was referred to designer Jim Deen of Kitchen Kraft, which is located in the Historical German Village area of downtown Columbus.
She met with Deen at the showroom and explained that she wanted dark wood kitchen cabinets. The two looked at stain samples and settled on a truffle. Next, Deen suggested a matte finish for her cabinets to avoid glare from the window. After considering many different door styles, she chose the slab door style. The slab door style was a great fit for the glass inserts she wanted for some of her doors.
Deen asked if she was more interested in framed cabinets or frameless cabinets. Frameless cabinets differ from framed cabinets by maximizing storage; because the frame does not block access, there is more storage space. Frameless cabinets are also easier to clean. The drawers of a cabinet are the most important factor in saving storage space. Frameless cabinets offer more room because they are not limited by the size of the frame. Choosing frameless cabinets or framed cabinets offered her an extra three inches per drawer. She decided to order the frameless cabinets in order to ensure that she had enough room for the high-end appliances she had purchased.
With the custom kitchen cabinets chosen, the next step was picking out the hardware. To match her stainless steel appliances, she chose an Amerock stainless steel pull, which was available in various sizes. The satisfied home owner received her custom kitchen cabinets a few week later, and was finally able to complete her dream kitchen.
