All the cabinetry I design on my jobs is custom built.
We have amazing carpenters around here and all the contractors I work with have local cabinet shops that they like to use on a job.
So, while I can have them build in special features like trash drawers, pull-outs, vertical platter storage and then unique vanities, bookcases, and kitchen islands……sometimes having just the right products to use constructing them, already made up, can add some real beauty and function.
I’m going to share several such ones I found at KBIS 2019, with you today.
Acrylic and metal legs and feet to jazz up cabinetry
I always go by the Outwater booth to see what interesting stuff they are showing.
This is like walking into a hardware store. It’s a unique kind of thrill to see all these odd things we have in our homes sitting in the displays. This year, they introduced some new acrylic legs and parts that would look amazing in a custom cabinet application.
I especially loved the metal feet and their smaller size available for thinner legs. Not only would these add some polish and refinement to a kitchen island or powder bath cabinet, but it would give that wood some protection at the floor too.
What’s inside your cabinets? Rev-A-Shelf delivers organization.
I can’t go to KBIS without seeing what is new at Rev-A-Shelf.
They came out with a vertical drawer insert that has a UL listed outlet and storage for hairdryers and products. Handy, no?
I just wish it was available in a unit for a 30” high countertop, this was designed for 36” counter. So, it would not work at a seated vanity where the counter is typically 30” H.
That outlet is designed so that you can’t close the drawer with anything plugged in. The open lid on the top of the outlet won’t pass into the cabinet.
Do you see below how they have incorporated the glides into this unit? These photos below are taken from the back of the unit.
With a glide at the bottom and then one along the side, this tall, slender drawer insert doesn’t rack or shimmy when it is opened.
Do you always wonder where to put that dang scale that you’re always tripping over in the bathroom? I mean who wants to look at that every day, right?
Rev-A-Shelf now has a handy option for you for the inside of a cabinet door. There’s a nice pull-out rack for your laundry room or closet too. :-)
Cabinet Hardware with a touch of wood
Lastly, I saw the most amazing new cabinet pulls at Belwith Keeler.
This is my fave cabinet hardware this year. Love the wood and metal combined in that sleek, modern style. Sometimes you need just a touch of wood in a kitchen or home office to warm it up. This style is perfect for that.
I also loved that they had a table full of their pulls that we could pick up and handle. Now that’s how to sell some cabinet hardware.
Did you miss a few of my other recaps from KBIS 2019? I’ve gathered them all right here for you.
