Painted cabinet door and drawer fronts have dominated the home design world for over 10 years now, and that trend may or may not be coming to an end. We’ve seen how painted cabinets look in kitchens, but what about the rest of the house?
One resident in Harwich Port decided to change their perspective on their painted Plato cabinet door and drawer fronts. You’re going to be inspired by how they incorporate different finishes on their cabinetry in the kitchen, bar area, office, and bathroom.
First let’s take a look at the kitchen. The cabinet style is a contemporary take on a traditional cabinet frame. The beaded edges give great sightlines and the beveled edges on the panels give it a soft line of transition. Painted white with black knobs and pulls. White kitchens like this have been trending for more than a decade now, in fact if you look back to the 80’s white kitchens were popular back then too. Painted cabinets will most likely be trending for years to come. White kitchen cabinets with black pulls give the kitchen a modern and clean look that everyone can appreciate.
While the homeowners selected painted white cabinetry in their kitchen, they decided to add some variation to the cabinetry in other parts of their home including the bar area.
The Bar Area
The bar area in this Harwich Port home is the perfect complement to the kitchen. It has the same cabinet and drawer style in a cherry wood with a coastal gray glaze. This gives the bar area a lovely beachy Cape Cod feel. The black pulls with copper accents add a sense of style and sophistication. The cabinet doors and drawers in the kitchen dovetail nicely with the bar area yet set it apart from the kitchen allowing it to stand alone as a distinct home design element.
The office in this Harwich Port residence has those same style cabinet doors and drawer fronts with a bold contrast. They went with a cherry wood and a merlot stain. This gives the office a prominent, masculine, and professional feel. A feel that wouldn’t typically work for a Cape Cod kitchen, but adds an interesting feature to the office space of this home. With more professionals working from home, a designated and thoughtfully designed office has become more important to homeowners than in recent years. The warm but darker look of these cabinets make a conservative and pronounced statement which can be helpful for productivity.
The Master Bathroom
Finally, let’s review how the same cabinetry can work in the master bathroom. The bathroom in this Harwich Port home has the same Plato cabinet door and drawer style painted in grey mist with the addition of intriguing knobs. Grey is a neutral color that works great in bathrooms, especially vanities. With the addition of crystal cabinet door knobs that shine so beautifully in the sun, the cabinetry in this bathroom is traditional and stylish. Using the same Plato cabinetry style from the kitchen to the bathroom gives this home a cohesive look, and still each room has its own style.
You may think that wood stained cabinetry is a thing of the past, but there are certainly design moments in a home where it still works and adds an interesting and cozy feel. You can coordinate your cabinetry choices while giving each room it’s own aesthetic by using the same door and drawer fronts throughout your design. It’s amazing how the continuity of the cabinetry style with a change in color and finishes can give each room a completely different feel.
