Out of Sight...Perfect Solutions

Free up kitchen clutter.  
  
Oodles of outlets on the backsplash were once desirable, but in an over-wired age, there's got to be a better way. And now there is.
  
Introducing the adorne® Under-Cabinet Lighting System by Legrand. It frees you from clutter and sheds the fresh new light of ingenuity right where you need it most
 
 
 

BEFORE
Why did it ever seem like a good idea to put all those outlets in plain sight?  Or to cook under the shadow of our cabinets?  Time to let brighter ideas shine!
 
 

UNDERNEATH
Hidden below the cabinets you'll find smart ideas. Innovative lighting options, plenty of power, USB outlets, and BlueTooth™ audio are all close at hand.
The modular design gives the ability to position puck or bar lights, traditional or USB power outlets, a phone cradle, a tablet cradle or a Bluetooth audio system with mobile device charger anywhere they are needed.  All this flexibility is wrapped in a practical functionality while eliminating countertop clutter.  The product is available in titanium color.
                   
Just another innovative idea that Cabinet-S-Top
can help
you incorporate into your kitchen
remodeling project.

Cabinet-S-Top Receives Award



Cabinet-S-Top Receives
2014 Contractor of the Year Award
 
Michelle Bortolotto
Senior Designer at Cabinet-S-Top
  receives
National Association of the Remodeling Industry's  (NARI)
2014 Contractor of the Year (CotY)
Honorable Mention Award
                                     in the Residential Kitchen $30,001-$60,000 Category
 
 
 
 

Michelle's client is an avid cook and felt her culinary talents were being restricted by her outdated kitchen and confining workspaces.  Trapped by a heavy bulkhead and walls that closed in, the cooktop offered an inadequate landing space on either side and made for an awkward, solitary cooking experience.
It was important to open up this area and add proper ventilation and lighting to create better workflow with the rest of the kitchen, thus allowing the kitchen to be more interactive and accessible.  The color palette and finishes for the kitchen were selected to bring in character, elegance and charm that compliments the rest of the home. Creamy painted maple cabinets with a contrasting island strike a balance between the refinished floor and new tile backsplash.  A custom pot rack was designed to give a statement to the room.
 
 The light creamy finishes are punctuated with darker accents that get noticed, like the bridge faucet, the medallion above the range and the cabinet hardware. The homeowner now loves preparing meals for her family in her new kitchen. All of her needs were met with functional and beautiful results, and within budget.

9 Creative Looks for Kitchen Cabinets

by Laura Gaskill

When plain cabinet finishes just won’t cut it,
consider these elegant to inventive approaches


There’s nothing wrong with plain white or wood cabinets, but if you’ve been looking for something with more zest and presence, these nine ideas can help. Running the gamut from elegant (stained glass) and green (reclaimed wood) to pure fun (pink), these creative cabinet designs will hopefully inspire you.
 
1. Stained glass. Get the warm, handmade look of an antique home even if your house is brand new with a set of lovely stained glass cabinets like the ones shown here. Installing interior cabinet lighting will enhance the look even more, casting a warm glow through the colored glass.
 
 
 
 
2. Cubbies. Break up all of the long, rectangular shapes usually present in the kitchen with neat little cubbyholes. If you go with nonstandard-size cabinets, be sure to measure your kitchenware first to be sure everything will fit.

3. Sliding barn-style doors. Love the look of open shelves but don’t want to go all the way? Consider adding sliding barn doors to your cabinets — they will allow you to conceal or reveal what you want.
 
 
4. A few colored doors. Want the crispness of an all-white kitchen but with a dash of pizzazz? Swap out one white cabinet door in every three or four for a brightly hued one, and watch your kitchen spring to life.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
5. Glossy pink. Pink is a bold and undeniably fun choice for cabinets. Bubble gum pink, as shown here, has a distinctly retro feel, while deeper raspberry would take the look in a more sophisticated direction.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
6. Two bold hues. Why stop with one bold color when you can have two? Choose one hue for the upper cabinets and another for the lowers, or do most of the cabinets in one hue and just one set in another color for contrast. Match the intensity across hues — pair lime green with bright turquoise, for instance, or pale lemon with soft spring green.
 
 
 
 
7. Open on top. Want open shelving without having to reveal all of your stuff? Consider cabinets with one open shelf at the top — it will be just enough to display favorite items while still allowing most of your stuff to reside behind closed doors. Take a cue from the kitchen shown here and line the open shelf with pretty wood and cabinet lights.
 
 
8. Chalkboard doors. Chalkboard insets made from real slate and framed in reclaimed wood are a refined take on a rustic look that is also quite practical. You can write your grocery lists and favorite recipes right on the cupboards! For a budget-friendly cabinet update, paint your existing cabinet doors with several coats of chalkboard paint and get writing.
 
 





9. Reclaimed wood. Standard plasticky cabinets getting you down? Try old reclaimed wood instead — rich in character, reclaimed wood adds charm and patina. The custom cabinets shown here were made from reclaimed oak, then finished with a whitewash and a clear protective finish.
 
If you love the look of reclaimed wood but don’t want to redo your entire kitchen, you can get the look without nearly as much work (or cost) by lining a single opening with old wooden boards. Install a floating shelf in the same color and style as your cabinets to help fold in the new feature.
