Thinking Outside The Kitchen: Wood-Mode Solutions For Unique Requests, Part I


It's all too easy to get caught up in the long list of rules that exist for curating an aesthetically pleasing and functional design for one's home.  As trends and technologies change, so do the rules.  But as any great interior designer knows, rules are meant to be broken.  Well, most of the rules that is (your furniture should never be a matched set and you should only buy what you love).

In the development of a great interior schematic, there is one steadfast rule that must never be broken - stay consistent. Think about your home as a whole rather than simple a group of parts.  Today's trending open plan architecture further emphasizes the need to consider how a design flows, paying close attention to its transition from one space to the next.  In a perfect world, those transitions aren't abrupt and jarring but instead, share elements to ensure a smooth visual connection between the connected spaces. 

Custom cabinetry, like the collections available from Wood-Mode, offer just such a solution to providing seamless transitions between interior spaces.  Not meant exclusively for use in kitchen applications, cabinetry components can be modified in a myriad of ways to create creative and beautiful features which guarantee not only that the fit and finish of each room's components remain consistent throughout an entire home but also that architectural proportions and finish details stay true to an aesthetic concept.

With this in mind, we combed the portfolios of Wood-Mode's nationwide showrooms and put together our favorite "Out of the Kitchen" examples where creative kitchen designers have developed unique solutions to special requests through the use of both Wood-Mode's existing components and custom capabilities.  Part I should get the creative juices rolling.  Stay tuned for Part II next week!
