I had the opportunity to work on a kitchen renovation last year, and it turned out it was an ideal project to create an eclectic, unique look with the cabinetry. It has become more popular in recent years to stray from the typical matching cabinetry throughout a kitchen. Using different finishes and colors can create a wonderfully fresh look in a kitchen, and can be very effective in older homes that embrace different styles and have been renovated over various decades.
These clients needed to maintain one wall of cabinetry from their original kitchen, which meant either trying to match the old cabinetry- something that is nearly impossible to do, or to go eclectic. We chose to add white and red cabinet blocks in the kitchen, being mindful of giving some overall connection and relationship between the 3 elements in the space with backsplash tile, countertops, crown molding etc. I love the way it turned out.
