When thinking about your dream kitchen, what type of cabinets come to mind?
Is it rich dark stained cherry wood?
Maybe it is a clean crisp white paint?
Do you picture yourself having a rustic kitchen complemented by different techniques?
You are not defined by any specific design style and have the freedom to come up with your own. To some of us, that vision may still be undiscovered. Whatever your style, here are a couple of categories to help you determine the look you imagine your kitchen to have.
Sometimes all a cabinet needs is a simple stain to allow the true beauty and character of the wood to shine through. Dark, medium and light tone stains each can create a completely different look depending on what they are paired with. Your style can contain a kitchen with all stained cabinets, or an island can be the perfect place for a stain to pop out amongst a beautiful paint color.
You can’t go wrong with a paint. A timeless white or neutral is something that will catch everyone’s attention for the life of the cabinetry. Tired of playing it safe? Maybe a bright bold color is what you need to craft an environment created by your own inspiration.
Wellborn Cabinet, Inc. offers ColorInspire, a program that allows you to choose from the color decks of Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams and Valspar making your imagination your only limit.
A number of techniques can be added to a cabinet to add character and a certain look. These techniques include rub through, spattering, burnishing, dry brushing, small dents, worm holes, carved edges, rasping and glazing. Each of these techniques create a unique, one of a kind look for cabinetry allowing your personality to shine.
Add a special touch
Aside from stains, techniques and paints, there are a number of different glazes that can be added to give detail to the cabinet design. Wellborn’s Brush Finish, a special application of Fawn glaze on top of a paint, is the perfect addition to any door style. Brush Finish is available on Glacier, Divinity, Crème and Vanilla. It gives the paint an overlay of a subtle brush stroke of glaze providing depth to the finish. This is accomplished by hand brushing each individual cabinet giving each a unique overall look.
Maybe it’s time to “Define your Unique Style.”
