Style meets Durability
The project is done, you have the cabinets you always wanted. The space is exactly what you hoped for and you are enjoying your new area. Some time has gone by and you notice things are starting to not work correctly. Drawers don’t close like they did, there is noticeable warping taking place on some of your cabinets, and there are cracks in the paint. As more time passes your disappointment only grows as more issues arise. This was meant to be a project that lasted, a one and done deal now it looks like you will have to repair or redo completely. We have some new clients share with us a few of the issues they encountered with their previous renovation with other companies. Choosing a custom cabinet company means more than just an opportunity to create a design perfect for you, it means quality and durability. At Walker Woodworking, our promise to you is a quality product that is guaranteed to last and continue to represent the style you chose for years to come. Here we share some of our popular styles.
Traditional Cabinet Style
This cabinet style continues to remain among the top choices and is considered a more formal design. Some of the typical features include raised panels and elegant embellishments. It is showcased beautifully in rich wood tones such as oak and walnut and harkens back to a time when things were not so rushed. If you are looking for a style that is refined and blends elegance with durability, this is the style for you.
Shaker Cabinet Style
Versatile and popular. These words best describe the shaker style. It is composed of five segments – vertical pieces on the sides called stiles, horizontal pieces on the top and bottom called rails, and a recessed panel in the middle. This particular style can lend itself to multiple design choices whether you lean more to a country or contemporary flair. Whether painted or left a natural wood, this cabinet style continues to be chosen by multiple clients. Shakers also make a great choice if you are considering selling your home later since it is a well favored option in kitchen design.
Farmhouse Cabinet Style
While this style shares similar characteristics with traditional, it has begun to develop its own unique elements including beadboard, shiplap and reclaimed wood. Open shelving and glass panel doors are sometimes added to give a more relaxed feel to the space. The goal is to create a welcoming environment through the use of minimalism and a subtle color palette though a pop of color can be seen in many of the designs. This style trend will continue to be seen in the design world.
Modern Cabinet Style
Sleek and simple is usually what comes to mind with this style. The goal is to create a design that is no nonsense and looks clean. Painted maple with a high gloss finish in a variety of colors tends to be the trend with this style. A mixture of materials such as metal, glass, and wood are usually present in the design choices. Due to its more simplistic style, the space can feel more open, airy, and clutter free. Those who enjoy a unique space that possesses an unrestricted design palette love the modern cabinet style.
Meant to last
Each of our clients receive a design meeting where they bring their inspiration photos, expectations, and dreams to share with our designer. We consider this meeting key to the entire project because it sets the course for what is to come. We want our clients to have a space that is representational of them and will last. Style and durability work together to provide the ultimate home renovation that is sure to exceed your expectations. With over 20 years of experience, we have provided hundreds of clients a product that stands the test of time.
