When preparing to renovate an old kitchen or install a new one, exploring the range of kitchen cabinet components will be an essential first step in creating a custom kitchen to reflect your own unique style.

Because of the way laminate doors are made, the seams of the underlying particle board (which is brown) may show, which is often considered a drawback to using laminate. Low-pressure laminate, such melamine, is used on the less-expensive kitchen cabinets and is not as durable as the high-pressure variety. It also comes in fewer colors, so it is less appealing among homeowners looking for a wide variety of color options.

Now, retailers and online specialty outlets carry a range of small appliances in bold colors and unique designs, with bright yellows and greens, reds, oranges and blues particularly common sights in contemporary homes. Because of their low profile, accessories like these in bold colors can pair with just about any kitchen style, from traditional to modern. For the more adventurous homeowner, large appliances are also available in a range of bold, retro colors and styles—ranges and refrigerators in bright reds, fuchsia and other playful colors aren‘t wholly uncommon.

Lighting is a particularly key feature of open kitchen designs, since open designs tend to incorporate more space than their closed-in counterparts. Finding the right balance of coverage, style and function can be a challenge, but if you focus on the three basic lighting types—main, decorative and task—you should have no problem lighting your open kitchen design. For main lighting, consider a track that encircles the room or runs through the middle of the entire design. A chandelier or large handing pendant can light the dining room space. Task lighting is a great idea for sink, cooking and food prep areas. And finally, decorative lighting can be a great feature for the tops and bottoms of cabinets.

Conversely, modern and contemporary kitchen design styles often incorporate up-to-date, present-era materials such as metal, glass and lacquered wood or laminate, and their design is often fairly unadorned, sleek and simple compared to their traditional counterparts. Angular cabinetry styles, simple and straightforward hardware, and flat, efficient surfaces are common in modern kitchen designs. Additionally, these styles may feature bold colors as an opportunity to express a bit of style personality, whereas traditional designs tend more toward muted or historical color schemes.

Mixers, blenders, toasters and other small appliances are ubiquitous in kitchens. As important as they are functionally, they can be just as effective when it comes to your kitchen‘s design style and appearance.

Wood is more expensive than any of the composite cabinet materials available, and solid wood doors and drawer fronts are typical in high-quality cabinets. Examples of the more luxurious woods used in quality cabinets are cherry, mahogany, chestnut and cypress. These woods are durable, naturally beautiful, less common and therefore significantly more expensive to use. When considering the quality of your kitchen cabinets, the insides matter as well. The boxes of cabinets themselves are often made of particleboard or even medium-density fiberboard (MDF). These compressed-wood options are often used by cabinet builders to reduce the cost of the project. In high-end cabinetry, you might find solid-wood cabinet frames as well as doors; however this drives up the cost of your cabinets significantly. Regardless of the material used, the insides of high-quality cabinets should be smooth, not rough to the touch, with shelves at least three-quarters of an inch thick. Dovetail construction is recommended over glued joints to provide cabinets that hold up to heavy use. This mortise-and-tenon or dovetail joinery is seen in the highest-quality cabinets and will definitely drive up the cost of your remodeling project.

Many homeowners choose to make their kitchen peninsula a fully functioning feature of their kitchen design by adding cooking or cleaning functionality. Adding a stove, refrigerator or sink to a kitchen peninsula can create a more efficient "work triangle" in your kitchen, making cooking, cleaning and food preparation easier and more enjoyable.

Paint Your Ceiling—Painting your entire kitchen a crispy, airy blue might feel too overpowering, but just painting your ceiling could really open up the room and add an ethereal feel. The ceiling is also a good place to introduce a bold color that wouldn‘t otherwise work in the room.
