Numerous times we have written about the kitchen and have had tons of responses all indicating that The Kitchen usually is one of The Most Important rooms in the house. Your kitchen is many times where the family congregates either as the immediate family each night for dinner or in the mornings for breakfast before everyone bolts out the door for their day. I would venture to say that the kitchen is where the entire family spends more time together than any other room.
In today’s photograph you can see a kitchen-specialist installing the cabinetry that was ordered for a Custom-Built Home. This particular home went to The Berkshire Mountains in the western part of Massachusetts. Not only were the cabinets a special order but a custom paint color. This family had repeatedly said that their kitchen was the most important part of the home.
It is fairly easy to divide cabinetry into two groups:
- Stained Wood – there are many species of wood such as Oak, Maple, Cherry, Hickory, and so on. All of these woods are available and can be stained in a multitude of colors such as light, medium, or dark.
- Painted Wood – painted cabinets come in so many different colors from shades of white, tones of grey, espresso, hues of green, blue, and and and so on
The available styles of cabinets are enormous. There are flat panels, raised panels, square frame, raised arch, just to mention a few.
The really cool this is that you get to pick and choose exactly what you want because your new home will be 100% Custom Built, right down to the tiniest detail. Vermont Modular will help you as you design your kitchen, it is part of what we do.
Once you’ve selected a style and color for your cabinets and completed the design/layout it is time to think about counter tops:
- Laminate is used often, these are the “Formica” counter tops that come from either Formica Corp. or Wilson Art. Laminate counter tops come a man colors and styles
- Solid Surface is a general term that applies to many types, styles, and colors of stone counter tops. Solid surface comes in natural products such as Granite or manufactured products like Corian, Quartz, and many others.
