Kitchen Placement DesignInterior design is about fashion as it is much about design. Although trends don’t change overnight, the sense of fashion permeates the theme and motif of any room. This is particularly true of kitchens.

Kitchen appliances and cabinets are utilitarian devices with a distinct style. Knotty Alder Cabinets, for one, provides a wide range of ready-to-assemble cabinets, each with updated and modern designs.

Cabinets and Kitchen Design

Cabinets aren’t usually the main design elements of the kitchen. Most visitors would gush over the appliances and implements, such as stovetops, refrigerators and freezers, ovens, and even the sink. Like pawns on the chessboard, the cabinets may be numerous, but these only follow the lead of the more prominent pieces.

Alternatively, with strong design flare, the cabinets can be front and center, relegating appliances as supporting design elements. These design elements can also be equal players even from the start of the design process—each element stacking up and balancing one another to create a unified whole.


Kitchens don’t have to be of a particular color or motif. However, this also happens to be one of the simplest approaches to create a singular theme. With an all-pastel palette, or hues of blue, warm neutrals, green or any other vibrant color schemes, the kitchen radiates a calming effect on the home cook.

It’s not easy to find a color palette that can highlight the kitchen, its flavors and functions, as well as reflect the tastes of the homeowner. This is a balancing act where a single element can be in the foreground or a swath of elements in a monochromatic medley of hues and tones. Kitchen cabinets are important in this grand scheme as they are the canvas for the colors. These are the building blocks of the overall kitchen look.

Kitchen design isn’t rocket science. It has to be logical for the cook to work in harmony with the ingredients in a dish. However, the colors need to melt into one another, not jarring between spaces and corners.
