For years our company has remained true to our commitments to quality, environmental stewardship, and devotion to our customers. With expansion in the works and applications welcomed, our company has decided to add a new edition to our Ashland location, coming in 2017, in the form of our new frameless line, Aspire Cabinetry. We will have an entire new line of paints, stains and door styles to choose from. Without all of the care and love from our employees, we would not have been able to get where we are today, and the Wellborn Family is so thankful.

Make a Great Escape with a Specialty Room for You

It has been said that distance makes the heart grow fonder. When the demands of life make it tough to get away, you can actually find your escape closer to home – right in your home, even – by carving out a corner to create a retreat just for you.

 

A room dedicated to you and all of your hobbies or personal interests can serve as a welcome escape from the real world if only for a little while. These tips make it simple to get started planning your big escape with ideas centered on some of the most common specialty rooms, as well as a solution for fitting the ideas into a smaller home.

 

Create a space for crafts.

If you find your frazzled senses defraying with a little threading therapy, look to create a space that celebrates this pastime. With the rise in popularity of websites such as Pinterest, which feature a plethora of DIY ideas, you’ll have ample opportunity to distract your mind and busy your hands.

 

A room designed to let you explore your crafty side can help prevent the kitchen or dining room table from becoming a creative center or wrapping station around the holidays, and allows those areas to remain dedicated to family, food and friendship. It doesn’t have to be just for crafts, though. It can also be a place to settle down with a good book and just relax.

 

Keep your space clutter-free and ready to enjoy with a craft room such as those designed by Wellborn Cabinet, Inc., which can feature spacious storage and expansive countertops, providing ample space to create projects that help decorate both the interior and exterior of the home, or simply to unwind and relieve stress.

Don’t dismiss cars, bars and sports.

If a room free of frou-frou decor where you can just unwind is more your ticket, a man cave may be just the answer. Man caves come in all shapes and sizes, from rowdy dens for sports fanatics to workshops decked out with the tools of your trade.

 

Even if decorating isn’t your thing, look for ways to make the place your own, whether you display trophies from your hunting excursions or decor emblazoned with the logos of your favorite sports teams. This is the room that allows you to relish in the hobbies you enjoy most.

 

If there isn’t a spare room or basement available, the garage can serve as a good alternative. With specific spots for tools and lawn care products – or even that car or motorcycle collection – the garage can meet the same needs as a more traditional man cave.

When two rooms become one.

Whether space limitations prohibit separate quarters, or you simply prefer to share your hobby time with a partner, you can create a specialty room that accommodates both your interests with a little creativity and planning. Working as a team, you can find the right accessories and storage to design a getaway for two. For example, a creative room from Wellborn Cabinet, Inc. offers more than 600 door styles, wood types and combinations. The result is a chance to combine two rooms, such as the man cave and craft room, for a sanctuary you can build and enjoy together.

Accessorize Your Personal Space

If creating a space all your own feels like a daunting project, these clever tips from the experts at Wellborn Cabinet, Inc. will help get you closer to a room you can get ready to enjoy:

  • Charging Solutions: Install a charging station in a drawer for phones or other handheld Power and docking stations can easily hide devices and ports yet keep them readily accessible.
  • Accessory Racks and Holders: Hooks for tools or coats keep them off of other furniture, including countertops where they can pile up and detract from your workspace. Cubby inserts and baskets help keep your things organized on
  • Sliding Shelves: Sliding shelves, drawers and baskets let you organize tools or crafting accessories while providing easy access to the items you’ve tucked

 

On-Trend Transformations

 

Although they’re often the smallest rooms in the house, they’re also among the most essential and most commonly remodeled spaces. When you approach design with both function and style in mind, you can elevate your bathroom to be much more than an afterthought.

While the bathroom is a space where function matters greatly, that’s no reason to skip adding personal touches to the space. From fixtures and decor that reflect your personality to accessories and features that fit your lifestyle, you can incorporate details that make your bathroom as much about you as the rest of your home.

The focal point of many bathrooms is the cabinetry, and the array of products available today make it possible to create nearly any look you can imagine. With an option such as Wellborn Cabinet Inc.’s Elegant Bath Collection, the possibilities are endless. The extensive collection of designer vanity suites, basic vanities and accessories fits a broad range of design aesthetics with an array of popular door styles and finishes.

If a remodel is in your plans, consider these in-the-now design trends to help create a bathroom retreat that blends your individual style with everyday luxury.

Contemporary style

Whether it’s a desire to capture the classic Zen spa style at home or simply a growing penchant for modern interiors, the bathroom is no exception for those who gravitate toward contemporary design. Cabinetry featuring clean styles, sleek hardware and full overlay doors lend well to a contemporary look. Add complementary lighting and fixtures, and keep accessories and decor simple and clutter-free to round out the look.

Painted cabinetry

Many a bathroom has fallen victim to monochromatic monotony. Fortunately, these days more bathrooms are getting a fresh look filled with colorful expression. If you’ve considered the cabinetry off-limits before, now is the time to brighten up your bathroom and make a statement with boldly hued woodwork. For a more subtle look, glazed richly toned stains may be the answer. Take another step toward this color-friendly style with neutral painted finishes and paints with glazes. Or go all-in with fully custom painted cabinetry, with Wellborn Cabinet Inc.’s ColorInspire program, that draws from the broad selection of shades from the extensive paint programs of well-known brands such as Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore and Valspar.

Floating vanities

In keeping with the trend toward modern motifs, floating vanities provide a clean, minimalistic appearance in a contemporary design. Particularly in a smaller room, this open, airy look is a stylish alternative to the pedestal sink as it lends an illusion of space while bringing expanded flooring into view. Paired with the proper cabinetry and color scheme, the floating vanity can work equally well in a transitional design.

Storage solutions

From pull-outs, tilt-ups and roll-outs to hidden outlets, simplified storage is in big demand, according to the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s 2016 Design Trends Report. Keeping clutter off the counter is easier than ever with clever storage solutions such as Wellborn Cabinet Inc.’s accessory base pullouts or toe kick drawers that create an extra place to stow your bath essentials in the space below the cabinet. Another solution to a common problem, the U-shaped sliding shelf wraps around the sink plumbing to hold towels, soaps and hair accessories, providing easy access to stored items while maximizing storage space inside your vanity.

Choose Your Door Design

The type of door overlay you choose for your bathroom cabinetry can make a big difference in the overall look of the room. Determine which door style fits best with your design:

Full overlay doors span over the frame and have a concealed hinge for a clean look.

Traditional overlay doors reveal some of the frame for a classic design.

Inset doors are placed inside the cabinet frame. Some brands, such as Wellborn Cabinet, Inc., offer options like beaded or non-beaded face frames.
