We always love to find beautiful Wellborn Cabinetry designs on Houzz – a great tool for consumers to find their “style” and for remodelers, builders and dealers to “showcase” their work!

Our Houzz Call of the week is from Echelon Custom Homes with a delightful clean and classic design using our Sonoma Maple Door Style finished in Sandstone Slate on the perimeter and island of the kitchen.

Gray. The New Neutral.

At this past year’s KBIS we debuted our new gray named “Willow” it was met with much excitement from our dealers, team members, design partners and the K&B industry as a whole! Our Corporate Designer Karen Salyer worked with our Dealer-Designer Council and our marketing team to achieve the correct hue answer to the new neutral question.

The transitional style kitchen also showcases components that are part of our Active Living Collection – the open space under the cooktop is a great space for legroom  – whether wheelchair or a chair / stool – and adds interest to the space as well.  One of the many elements that increased the appeal of this kitchen was the use of lighting! Lighting was used in the normal areas, wall cabinets with glass doors and in the leg room area under the cooktop but lighting was also added to base cabinetry in hard to see corners and where cabinetry kits were installed. Just another excellent feature for those clients with aging eyes, limited sight or really for everyone!

HGTV KBIS 2013: What’s Hot in Kitchens

Excerpt from: KBIS 2013: What’s Hot In Kitchens

by  May 1, 2013

If you saw Kayla’s bathroom trends post then you know that we recently spent a few days in the Big Easy for the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show checking out the hottest new products before they hit shelves. Trendspotting at a trade show is always fun but unlike other shows we attend where design is the only focus, kitchens and baths are spaces where form and function are equally important so technology is key. If you’re in the market for a new kitchen, or just thinking about a few upgrades, here are the freshest trends/technologies to make your kitchen really cook!

Wondering what color to paint your cabinets? I polled a few manufacturers and while white cabinets continue to be tops, gray is the shade they’re betting on to break white’s top spot. This kitchen by Wellborn pairs soft gray cabinets with richly stained wood — combining cabinet colors is another kitchen trend that’s holding strong:
