Regardless of whether you are building a stereo cabinet or dresser, a kitchen cabinet or bathroom vanity, basic cabinet construction is the same. The carcass construction can be separated into three types: leg-and-rail, frame-and-panel, and box or case. Frame-and-panel construction is used to make up the component parts of many types of furniture including the sides, doors and interior web frames with dust panels that are used on many fine, hand-built pieces of furniture. Box or case construction is the basic design of dressers, buffets, desks and chests, as well as kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities. The following is the simplest method of constructing, using glue and finish nails that are then set below the surface and the holes filled with wood putty. First step is to assemble the basic box, in this case of plywood, with glue and screws or nails.
Cut the two side casings first, fitting them flush with the upper end of the sides and the lower edge of the toe space. A Classic Kitchen Accessory Mounted with a French Cleat By Rob Robillard   In this article I cut a 100-year-old, recycled slate chalkboard and create a custom-sized frame to hang it in.
Since kitchen is an essential room area in the house, as the owner, we should ensure it effective and functional to use.
Other kitchen cabinet accessories involve metal and wooden racks to keep the kitchen tools tidy. This is being categorized within spacious area matter and plastic baskets subject and custom ornaments matter also kitchen cabinet accessories matter plus kitchen accessory subject .
There are 4 photos in the Kitchen Cabinet Accessories Ideas of this wonderful Kitchen issue . In the hundred's of homes that I have been in over the last ten years, the obvious giveaway on the age of the home is always the kitchen, and usually it's the colour of the wood cabinets that defines it even faster. If I walk into a kitchen that has dark brown cabinets, I know it was installed in the last 10 years. One of the worst mistakes is when a homeowner installs an 80's kitchen (for example) in a turn-of-the-century character home. The most beautiful kitchen renovation in a 1905 home that I have ever seen was designed by Susan Dossetter and Andrew Skurman and featured in House Beautiful magazine. The vintage French towel racks, which Susan Dossetter added to the antique baker's table, are hung with vintage towels that she has collected over the years.
Archive beveled tile provides a clean backdrop for the La Cornue Chateau range, made to order in burnished stainless steel and brass. When I am standing in a kitchen that looks very much like this one, and I recommend that this kitchen be painted white or cream–as soon as the words out of my mouth–the wife's face lights up and the husband looks horrified at the prospect of painting THE WOOD! I'm not sure why most men have this reaction (okay I've figured it out, and here's the post–written after this one) but it's pretty common. Men usually come around once they understand that it's not about the wood, it's about the fact that it's dated. So for those of you with this kitchen, reading this right now, there's really just one thing you need to know: This kitchen IS NEVER COMING BACK. Here's a 'before' picture of a kitchen I did for a client in West Vancouver with another designer, Jan Romanuk back in 2005.
Now that I've been talking about colour on this blog for 7 years, I would NOT specify a white this yellow again (above).
Instead, I would suggest the white I specified for this kitchen (below) which you'll find in my White is Complicated: A Decorators Guide to Choosing the Right White.
You can see that the countertops are very similar to the first kitchen, however the white chosen here is actually a greige, not a white or cream at all. How about the absence of upper cabinets – this means you probably have space for a fabulous pantry! A post on white kitchen's would not be complete without the famous, most copied, kitchen from Something's Gotta Give!
My bonus book of  colours is worth the price of the ebook alone but you will also get my system of understanding undertones so you can stop making mistakes when sourcing tile, carpet, countertops, etc.
If you would like to learn to choose the right colours for your home or for your clients, become a True Colour Expert. After all, one colour choice that's wrong either in a hard finish like a countertop or wall colour might make you upset every time you walk into your new space! What a beautiful job you did on that kitchen – wish I lived closer to you so I could hire you for my kitchen update (just taking down the wallpaper, painting, and painting the cabinets).
For the walls, I would paint them a white that is grayed so that you can distinguish between the cabinet colour and the wall colour.
If that's what you want, I would do the cabinets, Mountain Peak White OC-121 and the walls OC-1 Natural Wicker. I like wood floors in kitchens, but if that is not an option, I would choose a tile that coordinates with the countertop you select. So here are my questions:Do I need to paint the island (will there be too much white?)I'm going to switch out the laminate counters, too. If the top is maple on your island, you could leave the island, or you could paint it Bittersweet Chocolate (BM) and treat it like a separate furniture piece which is a big look right now. I also think the subway tile is more of a timeless look than the mosaic tile which will eventually scream 2009, 08, 07. Black and white tile is a pretty classic look and I think you can pull it off with the kitchen you are describing.
Hi Leigh,Well without seeing your kitchen I can't give you paint numbers but my advice if your countertops are laminate would be to pick a lighter taupe colour that works with your flooring. Hi Maureen,Seems too easy (I think there's a post idea here) but the white is perfect for a beachy feel! Sometimes people forget that the hard, fixed finishes which are the hardest to replace (and get dated just as fast as anything else) should be more neutral and instead let the colour and accessories be more important! I just redid my 80's kitchen in a creamy white (looked just like the one pictured)and it looks sooo much better.
Dear Fay,Basically a creamy colour is beautiful with that granite, BM Vanilla Ice Cream is a nice one and brushed nickel looks good in a renovated kitchen (not too fancy because your old cabinets still have a more dated profile. Dear Susan,I would pick a colour that relates in some way to the undertone in your faux painted countertops. Dear Anonymous,I would install a black countertop (it's standard at hardware stores) and it looks fabulous with white and periwinkle blue! Hi Kelly, if you are doing brown granite and a brown backsplash then paint your cabinets OC-1.
Hi Landry,Your kitchen has a cottage like feel to it, it's playful and fun (not necessarily elegant) therefore, I would not use any shade of white.
In this case I would be looking for inspiration from your flooring perhaps (not shown in your photo) or from the adjoining rooms in the space (your living room perhaps) then the only thing you need to do is change the yellow sink to stainless.
You are able to get IKEA kitchen cabinets inside a broad cost assortment in order to fit your spending budget. Assembling IKEA kitchen cabinets is extremely simple and doesn’t require any unique device. If you’re assembling IKEA kitchen cabinets by your self, initial study the instruction guide you receive using the IKEA cabinets. A cabinet or furniture piece consists of the carcass or case with two sides, bottom and top, a back and a front.
Leg-and-rail construction is found on chairs, tables, benches, stools and on some furniture such as chests. These can be softwood or hardwood plywood, and they can be painted or stained and varnished.

Enjoy:The best kitchen cabinets are ones with a story to tell, the kind that inspire us to dream up a creative vision for our own homes. If it's an orangy, ginger coloured, shaker style cabinet, I know that it was installed in the late 90's early 2000, if the cabinets are oak (keep reading), well you get the picture! Susan Dossetter found the reproduction Windsor chairs in Nantucket and had the table made to work with the chairs and the cabinet. So the only way to extend the life of it is to prime it, paint it, and install new hardware. This client moved in with the cabinets already painted but you could still see the grain of the wood through the paint colour.
I'm in the process of remodeling my kitchen and have the oak cabinets you've pictured except without the arch on the top of the cabinet. People think I'm nuts, as they are beautiful, but I just installed a wide plank ironwood floor (dark brown) and I think white cabinetry would be a great contrast.
I actually saved money and fauxed painted the countertops to look like granite then envirotexed.
The number is scary, but I liked their suggestion for painting the cabinets cream instead of the medium brown I was planning to use.

Particle board, finished on one or two sides, is a common material for construction of some cabinetry. Incidentally, you can construct a custom kitchen cabinet to fit any space, rather than the small individual sections joined as with purchased cabinetry. The bottom shelf is raised above the floor on most cabinets to create a “toe-space” or kick board. The simplest method, especially for overlap doors, is to install veneer tape over the plywood edges.
It places within easy reach all the necessary utensils and articles needed for the larger part of the cooking, is easily kept clean, and can be located or moved so as to afford an abundance of light. Once the cabinetry, furniture and kitchen shape have been applied well, let’s complete the kitchen with some ornaments. Rack on the wall especially kitchen backsplash can ease us to take and put the utensils while cooking in the kitchen.
I’d like to share 10 of the most unique kitchen cabinet styles out there—probably even some you’ve never heard of…#1—Mismatched-DIY My personal favorite, DIY cabinets are for the creatives—the forward-thinkers.
Quilted steel insulation panels, covering the Sub-Zero refrigerator, should be available at any sheet metal shop.
The canbinets and countertops will be white with beaded board walls, white open shelves,farmhouse sink, and butcher block island. The entire kitchen will have stainless appliances so the only truly fixed element so far is the granite. Now we are replacing the floors, and am wondering if certain colors of wood floors are in now, or what you think looks best with white. When they held up the cream sample door against the granite sample and the backsplash tile sample, I really like how it all looked together. They’re inexpensive within the feeling that costs are affordable in comparison to other kitchen area cabinets. Place the screws and cam locks as for each the guide and use a big screwdriver to lock the cams.
A case can also be constructed of solid wood, but these days solid wood is used only on small pieces or for extremely fine furniture.
Locate the position of the bottom on the side pieces and mark the kick board cut-out on each cabinet side. Then cut the lower facer to fit between the two side facers, ensuring the correct width to match the top edge of the bottom shelf and the bottom edges of the toe spaces on the sides. Cut door and drawer dividers to fit between the drawer bottom facer or facers and the upper or lower facer as needed. Upper cabinets are anchored to the wall with a nailer strip at the top and through the back into the studs, as well as with screws through the back into the studs. Next, transfer the measurements to the ?-inch plywood to saw it accordingly into the cabinet\’s back, side, top and bottom pieces.
The cabinet described here, while seemingly a rather elaborate piece of furniture, is easily made by any one having ordinary skill in the use of woodworking tools. Materials are as vast as your imagination, from recycled shipping crates to thrift-shop furniture finds to quirky metal filing cabinets. I ordered a Giallo ornamental granite for my kitchen that looked quite gold but in my kitchen looks more brown with cream, white, flecks of color. I'd like a fresh and fun feel, maybe with a green accent wall, BM Pale Avocado or Brookside Moss, along the far side of the kitchen.
IKEA licensed kitchen area installers would arrive for your home and set up IKEA kitchen area cabinets.
Following assembling every cabinet, examine once more to make sure that all cabinets are assembled correctly. If a side is to be concealed against a wall, that side can be made of more economical plywood. A more traditional method is to install individual facer strips over the front edges of the case.
To cut to length, cut one end smooth and square, then hold it in place and use a sharp pencil to mark the length. These can be anchored in place with toenail-driven, self-starting wood screws in countersunk holes, with glue and finish nails, or with glue blocks from the backside. Use a four-foot level to determine level and wood shingles as shims to ensure a level unit. Homemade cabinet jacks of 2-by-4’s with shingle wedges can be used to temporarily hold the upper case up in position and help level and plumb it until you can get it fastened solidly in place. After that, you need to assemble the cabinets according to your design and nail them together by using finishing nails and for more extra strength, do add some glue onto it before you start to nail them.
For convenience in describing, the work will be divided into two parts: the base and the cupboard. When there is no accessory in the kitchen, this room will look simple and dull though it is so functional in other way. The countertops are calcutta gold and the island is a white base to match the cabinets and island top is walnut. Locate the studs in the wall and fasten the cabinet in place with screws through the rear top nailing strip. You can also use clamps for holding the frame together while waiting for the glue to dry thoroughly.
There are many accessories for kitchen which are available to pick based on your kitchen need.
Wall-mounted structures maximize floor space in a slick, geometrical pattern reminiscent of pixilated video games.

And most importantly what white do you recommend that is soft and warm but one that reads white, not cream or ivory like? The concept is striking, to say the least.Collect this idea #3—StorybookSometimes, the most interesting kitchen cabinets are ones that don’t exist at all. Anytime you want to do some improvement, remodeling kitchen cabinets using ikea products could be a good decision. The base contains a large bin for bread-flour on the right, a compartment for cooking dishes and pans on the left, two large drawers on the right end for sugar and flour, and a large front drawer for knives, spoons, etc.
You also need to construct a face frame for the cabinet by using the 1-by-6 lumber so that it can be attached as the cabinet\’s door.
At the right, even with the top, a bread or meat board, in the form of a drop leaf, gives additional space.The upper part, or cupboard, has a molding-board which drops down and exposes three shelves for spices and other supplies.
Compartments are dug out of the smooth, curved sink and countertops to make room for open shelving. This can be done by cutting the 1-by-6 lumber into 4 pieces per each of the cabinet that you build. After that, you can attached the 1-by-6 pieces frame using the wood screws and also drill holes into the face frame so that you can attach them to the cabinet frame using nails.
In the upper right corner is a closet with a door, and below this two or three drawers, as preferred,- the design showing three,- in which articles in bulk may be stored. By pre-drilling holes on it will enable for the finishing nails to go through easily without damaging the plywood. Unless an experienced woodworker, either of the two latter kinds had best be used, only be sure to get thoroughly dried stock.The first work in the construction of the base is the frame shown in Fig. That’s why the clusters scent is displayed to damage the clean and spacious concept of the kitchen appearance.
They also sanded and re-stained the wood trim, then installed reclaimed midcentury light fixtures to complete the authentic look.Collect this idea #5—Luxury GlassThis kitchen blows me away.
You can do this by using the table saw and cut the plywood according to the mentioned sizes and then you need to sand the doors to make them look smooth. The Isola Linear by Toyo features a cantilevered structure for a kitchen that seems to be stacked yet floating at the same time. Before attaching the doors onto the cabinet, you also need to apply stain wood and use polyurethane finish.
The frame may be made of any suitable wood other than pine, which is too soft.For the flooring and partitions whitewood or pine may be used. Cabinets are finished with Venetian glass mosaics and five types of etchings.Collect this idea #6—Reclaimed WoodAside from looking incredible, reclaimed wood cabinets are about as eco-friendly as it gets. Apply the first coat of stain and allow them to dry thoroughly before applying it for the second time. Once the second coat has dried, you need to apply a coat of polyurethane finish to the cabinet and leave it overnight before you start to install them the next day.
Finally, the task of installing the cabinets by attaching them to the studs where you have decided to place the cabinets. You can use shims in order to properly set the level of the cabinets into the designated place before screwing them into the studs.
Designed for “homes of the future,” these kitchens are compact, curved and outstandingly efficient.
The outer pieces D are nailed snug up against the posts A, and form the ledges for the drawer.
The floor E is nailed to the bottom piece B, and the partition F is nailed at the top through the piece D and at the bottom through the floor. The Futuristic Kitchen by Ora-Ito (above) went on tour across Europe in 2007, stopping in historical city centres to give passersby a glimpse at high-tech design.Collect this idea#8—21st-Century RusticContemporary rustic offers the best of both worlds. The idea is simple: merge country-style rusticity with the clean lines, sleek design and modern technology of today.
These joints should all be well made, and care used to erect the frame perfectly square, that the drawers and doors will open easily. Wooden beams from old-growth trees shelter a bright kitchen with contemporary-style cabinets.
Unlike the cookie-cutter cabinets in many homes today, the Arts & Crafts style is famous for durability, artistic detail and a craftsmanship that has endured for centuries. This kitchen by Crown Point contrasts a pale blue kitchen island with fantastic artisan cabinets and matching range hood.Collect this idea #10—GothicGothic kitchens are hard to get just right. The left side has a groove running the whole length; the right side has a mortise corresponding to the one in G. A second piece of the same dimension as J, with grooving on both sides, is also required, as will be seen from Fig. Keep it chic, on the other hand, and you’ll get gorgeous, arched glass-front cabinets like the ones above.
These homeowners hand-stained their cabinets before meticulously texturizing them with steel wool.
They even installed dark wood trim around the microwave and refrigerator to keep everything Gothic antique-style. 4, 2011 at 12:27 PMLogin to ReplyKitchens should be cozy, and #2, #4, #5, and #7 are anything but. The grooving can all be done at the lumber mill at little expense if, when the order for the lumber is given, the pieces to be grooved are specified. When all the pieces are cut out and accurately fitted they are put together, being firmly glued, and held tight with clamps while the glue dries. If no regular clamps are available, temporary ones may be made by screwing two blocks of wood to a strong, level board, far enough apart to allow a wedge to be driven in between one block and the frame. When completed the size should be such that, with the left side even with the front of piece A of the frame, the inside of the right piece G should be even with the inside of the post A of that corner, thus allowing the drawers to be easily fitted. The left end is made the same as the right, with the exception that a panel takes the place of the drawers, and the pieces G and J are grooved for the extra panel. Additional drawers may be made on the left end if desired, but the capacity of the cupboard in front will be just that much less.The front is easily made. The ends and front being completed, they are fastened to the frame with some 2" wire nails of small gauge.
Nail and glue the ends to the frame, and then the front, strongly gluing and nailing the joints between the front and ends. This done, make the door of the cupboard and front of the flour-bin, the two being alike and are 20" high and 14" wide.
I, personally loathe cosy spaces, simply because in most cases it means boring, plain, safely traditional and common space. They are totally my style and the style that I am going for with the rest of my kitchen and home. In smaller kitchens, a work area in each space may not be possible due to space.  The more working areas you can provide yourself, the better. Having a sink in the island will prevent you from walking from the refrigerator to another remote area constantly. The cook can maximize their time in the kitchen and won’t get distracted by traffic walking through the kitchen. This plan is also easier to entertain from, since it is open up to the adjacent room on one side.
