Wood Kitchen Cabinets in Wilmington, Delaware

A kitchen remodeling for a home of empty nesters was crucial. The homeowners wanted an updated kitchen to match their traditional colonial style home. They wanted their new design to reflect their next stage in life. The designers took the couple to the showroom to turn their design dreams into a beautiful kitchen with wood kitchen cabinets.

With their first visit to the showroom they instantly loved the Heirloom finish on one of the displays as well as the many wood kitchen cabinet ideas. They also decided darker granite counter tops would be the way to go rather than wood kitchen cabinets with white countertops. Working with the designer they achieved a floor plan that would work well with their small square kitchen space. Included in this floor plan is a unique island/table piece that is a small island with a lower level table which can seat 3 – with their only child off to college this idea worked for them!

Complementing color choices were made including custom cabinetry in Heirloom Maple for the main kitchen and Wicker Fairfield for the island/table. The owners chose wood cabinets with glass doors in order to display their dinnerware. Santa Cecelia granite reflects the cabinet tones and a creamy subway tile with plumed accent tiles and a Mocha Glaze finish helps to marry the choices even more.

A large window was kept for natural light and under cabinet accent lighting was used to brighten the small space. The designer along with the homeowner also decided on glass fronted doors to add an open feel. Top of the line appliances turn the cozy space into an efficiently working kitchen.
