Get Creative - Cabinetry Inspirations from KBIS 2015
The 2015 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas was full of fantastic cabinetry inspirations. The show was brimming with eclectic design styles, common materials used in uncommon ways, and new products that make your cabinetry come alive. Since I couldn't take you along as I visited each booth, I've taken the time to showcase some of the most creative design ideas and products that I found.
FUN, FLOATING & FUNKYFloating elements are very popular and very cool. Whether it is a floating shelf, floating drawer or floating cabinet; these designs are fun and give the illusion that the elements are unsupported, as if by magic. Who couldn't use a little magic?
|Clean lines, soft hues & a floating drawer ooze a spa-like feel|
|Put a slant on your designs with irregular forms & asymmetrical geometry|
|Retro colors used in creative patterns lend a funky vibe|
|Use contrasting materials & hidden lights for a clean, modern feel|
|Use color & lighting to brighten up a space|
|Floating cabinetry appears to defy gravity itself|
RUSTIC, REFINED & ORGANIZEDRustic materials that evoke nostalgia and replicate or pay homage to mother nature provide designs with a feeling of comfort and warmth. Industrial influences in lighting or hardware give a masculine, casual feel to a space. On the other hand, more refined styles can be used on their own or in combination with these rustic elements. Either way a good design has to be functional and when it comes to cabinetry, organization is the name of the game.
