Kitchen cabinets come in a seemingly infinite combination of sizes, finishes, styles, and materials, and they typically account for the most visual space in a kitchen. Picking the right size, finish and door style is only a small part of selecting your cabinetry. The layout of your cabinets is one of the most important design decisions when planning a remodel. In addition, the options in cabinet type are also vast: are you looking for traditional door cabinets or are you interested in adding more drawers? Have you thought about how you can make your kitchen more functional by what is behind the doors? Cabinet manufacturers are constantly adding functionality to their products by thinking about how their clients use their kitchens. Let us show you not only how beautiful your new cabinetry can be, but how they can add to the organization and functionality of your new kitchen.
Countertops can be a gorgeous focal point in your kitchen, but they also must be able to hold their own as the workhorse in the kitchen. Natural stones, such as marble and granite, are quarried from the earth as enormous slabs. Each one is unique and the variety of veining and tones are vast. Quartz countertops differ from marble, granite and other natural stones in that they are manufactured: they contain crushed quartz mixed with resin in a ratio of 93% quartz to 7% resin. Butcher block, stainless steel, and concrete countertops are also part of the selection for today’s homes. Our KBF Design Team can discuss the benefits, durability and maintenance of each type of countertop with you, and help you decide which choice best complements your aesthetic and lifestyle.
