The decade of the 1980s brought change to kitchen design. Because kitchen ventilation improved tremendously, homes could now feature a more open format because cooking smells would not enter other living areas, and thus the kitchen became more of a room in which to live. The trend of having guests come into the kitchen was a new phenomena, and kitchen designers used this to revamp the ways that kitchens looked and functioned. In later decades, seating areas, sometimes as a bar with stools, became more common as a way to integrate entertaining in with cooking. Cooking became more a creative rather than work pursuit, and this aided in the changes to kitchen design.
Kitchens with a focus on the sink, stove and refrigerator have been the norm for many decades. Cabinets in the kitchen were used for storage, but decorative elements such as color and trim were also taken into account. Small kitchens in decades past may also have included a small breakfast nook for quick family meals. The room was typically closed off from other rooms mostly due to a lack of kitchen ventilation suitable for use with cooking appliances.
A custom cabinet should allow you to choose the finish and details of your cabinet. This way you'll be able to coordinate the finish to either your wall color or any existing shelf systems you have in the room already. Other details include a display light kit, decorative bases, a clock at the top and framed or unframed glass doors. With so many options, you'll be able to completely customize your cabinet.
In more recent decades, kitchen cabinetry has also changed and evolved. The use of a kitchen island is one of these popular developments. An island will consist of kitchen cabinets, often custom crafted, as a freestanding area in the kitchen. The surface of the island might include a sink and stovetop, along with a large work surface, and under this will be ample storage areas.
Building Your Own Kitchen Cabinets: If you have ever considered building your own kitchen cabinets and aborted the idea by convincing yourself that you have no woodworking tools, or I know nothing about wood staining and finishing, or little about cabinet making in general, then read on and believe me when I say it can be done with minimal tools.
