Kitchen Bookshelf Ideas

Bookshelves are very versatile when it comes to incorporating them into your kitchen cabinetry. Designing open shelves at the end of your island is a perfect way to take advantage of unused, awkward space. Open shelving adds character to a kitchen because not only does it provide a bookshelf area, but also an area to show off knick-knacks or collectables. The shelving can also be incorporated into the cabinetry area of your kitchen. If you have collectables or important family cookbooks that you don’t want to be accessible to children, putting them at a higher point may be the choice for you!

Kitchen Bookshelf Ideas for your Kitchen Island by Kountry Kraft Cabinetry

There is a variety of kitchen bookshelf ideas to incorporate into your kitchen. Even if you don’t have a random pile of books, a kitchen bookshelf can hold anything! Some people are inspired by the way people display their kitchen items, and a kitchen bookshelf is such a unique and tidy way to do so. Bookshelves can also be accompanied by baskets or storage bins. A plain white kitchen is sometimes too “simple” and a bookshelf is the perfect way to add more personality to your space. View the below kitchen bookshelf ideas we have created for our customers.

Many people struggle with choosing a kitchen color scheme, mostly because so much goes into planning a kitchen remodel. You must think about cabinetry, floor color, countertops and appliances when choosing your kitchen color scheme.

Choosing a Kitchen Color Scheme using Cabinetry Flooring and Countertop Colors Kitchen Color Schemes with Accented Countertops and Neutral Countertops Kitchen Color Schemes can Include an Accented Backsplash or a Neutral Backsplash color

When choosing the colors of your kitchen, you should start with any of the main components. Floor color, countertop color, or cabinetry color. Depending on what you are passionate about the most, your color scheme can be based off what you begin with. Some people have a passion for one unique color and that may be the base of their color scheme.

How to Make your Kitchen Match

Choosing your kitchen cabinetry is a great first step. Complement your cabinets with the floor color and use your countertop color as an accent piece (or vice versa). Kountry Kraft offers many unique cabinet colors to choose from – which allows you to bring personality into your kitchen. Deciding your budget is the first step to choosing your cabinetry, this can be used as a guide to selecting your style. White cabinetry pairs well with dark wood floors and an accented countertop. Natural wood cabinetry pair well with neutral colored countertops and an accented backsplash.

This Kitchen Color Scheme Includes White Cabinetry with a Light Hardwood Floor and a Teal Backsplash

Once you choose your cabinetry color, you can move onto your floor color. Hardwood flooring is a great choice for your kitchen space because it is warm on bare feet, absorbs sound and kinder to a long-standing chef. You may choose from light, medium or dark wood for your flooring. Once you choose your floor color, it is time for your countertops. You can get very artsy when it comes to countertops. Countertops vary in color, pattern and style making it sometimes difficult to match with your existing cabinetry and flooring. Whether you choose granite, tile, wood, etc., your countertop will become a signature piece in your kitchen – maybe even the focal point.

When designing your kitchen, you always want a focal point to bring the overall look together. Custom range hoods can be that unique piece of your kitchen. Kountry Kraft not only creates custom cabinetry but also custom range hoods.

Custom range hoods can add a dramatic effect to a kitchen through color, style or shape. Having custom features in your kitchen bring personality and character to your home. When you incorporate a custom range hood into your kitchen, it can become the focal point of the room. The focal point of a room is the first thing people see when they walk in, and it typically brings the whole kitchen together. A focal point piece should be exciting and eye-catching, drawing in the attention of your visitors.

Range hoods are one of the main components of a kitchen, but that doesn’t mean it has to be an ordinary range hood. Range hoods are typically rectangular however, you can make your custom range hood any shape you’d like – triangular, circular or even cylinder shaped! Your custom range hood doesn’t necessarily need to stand out, you can also make it blend in with your cabinetry and barely noticeable in plain sight. You can even design your range hood to be a storage space so that you don’t lose any storage room from a range hood.
