Cheat Sheet

for buying quality cabinets

  • The front face of the cabinet box, door panels, and drawer front should be constructed from solid wood and unmarred – without knots, scuffs, cracks, or other marks.
  • Mortise-and-tenon joinery will be found in the corners, the longer the tenons and the deeper the mortises, the better the construction will hold together. Maybe the most easily spotted mortis-and-tenon joint is the dovetail joint.
  • Sides of the cabinets and the sides of the drawers should be half-inch thickness (or more).
  • A routed groove should be present in the side panel of the cabinet to hold the drawer.
  • The cabinet floor shouldn’t be loosely fitted but rather routed grooves should be secure the floor to the side panel.
  • Cabinet shelves should be at least three-quarters of an inch thick with adjustable metal brackets (not plastic).
  • Door should be secured with adjustable hinges for aligning with the face frame.
  • Door panels should be deeply fitted into the frame to account for expansion and contraction, not glued in place.
  • Drawers should have sides on both sides for even gliding, verses a slide on just one side.

Kitchen Cabinet Style Guide

-In 2017 contemporary-style kitchens overtook traditional style for the #2 slot in popularity. That’s clean lines and simple slab doors.

-White & gray are the most sought-after colors and the newest emerging popular colors are BLUE and black.

-Colors that are declining in popularity: natural stain, distressed finish, brown.

-Two-toned cabinets kitchens are on the rise (one color wall cabinet and a second color for the island.)

-Quartz recently beat out granite for the #1 countertop surface.

It’s a hot trend, but what is transitional style?

In interior design, transitional style means blending contemporary and traditional elements in the perfect proportion.

And it makes sense as an intermediate step in the adoption of a contemporary style. Most people don’t want to part with all the traditional objects of affection in their design but are aching to incorporate some of the new, cool contemporary pieces touted in every design magazine. Transitional style affords that guilty pleasure. Instead of ending up in a transitional mish-mosh, here’s some tips for achieving transitional perfection:

  • De-clutter. Transitional style needs clean lines so cut down on accessories.
  • Stay neutral. Stay monochromatic or mix cool and warn neutrals like brown and gray.
  • Go big. Instead of small arrangements furniture or grouping of wall art, choose one big object or painting instead.
  • Incorporate texture. Combine elements by using glass, wood, metal, fabrics, and plastic.
