6 Decorative Accents You Need for Your Kitchen Renovation
In addition to cabinet hardware, consider other kitchen elements that add detail and function into your space. These decorative accents can make a huge impact, so don’t wait for your builder to mention them!
Butcher Block Counter Top
Looking for an alternative to granite? Butcher Block can be used in so many different ways in your kitchen. It works well with essentially every style of kitchen from traditional, industrial, to modern, along with different cabinet colors. Butcher block can be installed in a small area of the countertop that’s specifically for cutting and preparing food, or on an island that’s the centerpiece of the kitchen.
Decorative wire is a great way to add major decorative detail in a small way. It can be added to the whole top section of cabinets, to a middle section to show off decorative dinnerware, or to an accent piece or china cabinet. Decorative wire comes in a multitude of shapes, sizes, and finishes. Most commonly, we sell antique pewter, antique brass, and satin nickel. We stock many of the choices, but custom order is also available for special sizes and finishes.
Custom hoods are a great addition that can be matched to your kitchen style. They add warmth, character, and continuity to the overall kitchen design. It’s also a great way to hide your ventilation system while matching the character and style of your cabinets. Speaking of ventilation, make sure you get the right kind of blower for how you use your kitchen. If you are a heavy cook, we recommend the high CFM blowers (500CFM+). We can help you make your selection to get the right hood, liner, and power pack combination for your needs.
Wine Rack Lattice
Want to add wine storage to your kitchen or bar design? We carry a variety of wine lattice options that can be used around wet bars and kitchens. We have many styles including beaded, plain, and shaker that are available in cherry, maple, and red oak. Stemware racks are also an option if you want to keep your wine glasses within easy reach.
Floating shelves offer sturdy support and a custom, open concept look to your space. The shelves can be used to display decorative personal items or dinner and glassware. Our selection comes in alder, cherry, hickory, maple, and red oak. If you are storing your dishes on floating shelves, make sure to check the load capacity of the brackets. Not all floating shelf brackets are created equal. We have all-purpose, medium, and heavy duty for all your floating shelf needs.
Lastly, don’t forget about your cabinet lighting to show off your space! Advances in LED technology provide a world of options to illuminate your kitchen cabinets and shelves. Lighting choices can seem daunting, but with the complimentary Lighting Layout Assistance Program, you can be guided in exactly what you need. Send us your plans, and we will send you a quote with the items you need. It’s as simple as that!
