Simple Elegance

White cabinetry never seems to go out of style. Here a minimalistic design has created a simple elegance and timeless beauty.

A few features that simplify this design are the flat door panels, drawer heads and the peninsula back panel.  The finish is a tinted varnish without any glazing.  Glazing will highlight details: this is not what we want here.  Also, note that the backsplash is painted and not yet tiled.  Sometimes less is better.

This brings up some other interesting points:  1) you don’t always have to tile, 2) you can do a remodel in phases if desired,  3) flat panel doors, shown here, are less expensive than raised panel doors.  Using them will free up funds for more expensive options like the decorative hood featured in this design.  Be smart and choose where to spend your money.
