Design Tips for Kitchen Flooring and Cabinets | Home Guides

Families often spend more time in the kitchen than they do in any other room of the home. So it makes sense that a lot of thought and design consideration go into the selection of kitchen cabinets and the flooring. The kitchen cabinets are one of the largest, most visible components of the kitchen design, while the floor needs to hold up to the traffic of the kitchen while complementing its style.

Cabinet Styles

Kitchen cabinets take up a lot of space in the kitchen, with the upper cabinets being right in the line of sight. They often set the tone for the style of the rest of the kitchen. For contemporary spaces, look for slab-style cabinet fronts and sleek, solid finishes with little grain and no glazing. In formal kitchens, think about using a traditional overlay cabinet front, and include decorative filler panels at the ends of the rows. Select a wood species with some character, such as Brazilian cherry, and include a glaze to add depth to the color.

Why you should always start with flooring when it comes to interior design

There’s a reason neutral, plain carpets dominate the flooring market. I’m afraid to say that the non-committal, non-colours of grey, beige and greige are easy outs. Their use is symbolic of a refusal to engage with the true potential of a space. A floor left grey is the last chocolate in the box left uneaten.

The fear of getting it wrong is a major driver in the popularity of boring flooring. To avoid this fear, interior designers suggest starting with the floor instead of leaving its consideration to the end of the design process. Many of them believe that it is the flooring that should serve as the palette for the rest of the space, giving the room in question a grounding (if you will…) of colour and pattern. As interior design doyenne Michelle Ogundehin recently told ELLE Decoration, “the most important design decision [is] the flooring. Literally and visually, it is the foundation for everything, underpinning every view and item lain upon it”.
