Kitchen Design Ideas- Making Kitchen Cabinets Look Like Furniture

Kitchen Design Ideas-  Customizing any kitchen is easy, it just takes a little creativity.   With the growing trend in the kitchen industry of including pieces of furniture in the kitchen, you can do this without ordering custom cabinets and without breaking the bank with expensive reproduction furniture.    You can easily make stock kitchen cabinets looks like furniture with the simple addition of furniture feet or furniture legs.

There are a wide variety of styles and designs that you can use, and we stock a wide range of them under our unfinished accessories.   In most cases you wouldn’t want to do the entire kitchen with furniture legs, but you want to use them on cabinets or parts of the room that you want to be the focal point – like the sink or cook top.   They are often used on the corners of islands or peninsulas to add an additional design touch where the ends might be sticking out.

Customiziing cabinets with Furniture Legs

Adding furniture legs to any cabinet will add some design accents to a standard cabinet

Installation techniques will vary slightly from product to product, but in most cases you don’t have to do it while installing the cabinets (most of the feet and furniture legs that I have seen could potentially be installed after the cabinets are already in place).   So if you are not looking to replace your cabinets, but you want to add some design touches, you can add some detailed at the bottom of the cabinets.   While we do not carry them, I have also seen some cabinet lines that carry decorative toe kick which can be used to create the illusion of feet.
