Classic White Kitchen

In the design stages many details were incorporated in this classic kitchen to give it dimension since the surround cabinets, counters and backsplash were white. Polished nickel plumbing, hardware and custom grilles on feature cabinets along with the island pendants add shine, while finer details such as inset doors, furniture kicks on non-working areas and lofty crown details add a layering effect in the millwork.

Hi. What are the boxes for these cabinets made of. My cabinet maker - is trying to convince me to use melanine drawers and shelves because they are white. What is a good quality white kitchen cabinet box made of? Thanks

House of L Interior Design
Hi! Cabinet interiors can be comprised of many different materials. Ones of exceptional quality are typically made out of wood, maple being the most commonly used and details would include dovetailed drawers and 3/8" to 5/8" interior construction. Melamine can be a practical application for interior cabinets in a high traffic area, such as a laundry room or an arts and crafts room where there is a likely chance of something more abrasive could come in contact with the cabinet interior and driving the substrate materials of the cabinet to be more durable; this is why melamine is always used in commercial applications as well. If your cabinet fabricator was given underlying reasons why he should provide a melamine interior then I could see his reasoning, however for a new kitchen I would recommend wood and simply paint any exposed areas. I hope this helps! Please follow House of L on Houzz to get all of our recent updates and photos! Thanks for your inquiry!

Hi. They are approximately 1/2" but the molding is stepped so it doesn't appear flat and is dimensional. I hope this helps!

I am wondering if it's just a white. I'm looking at TEC grout in either bright white or standard. And leaning toward their bright white as it's not as bright as name would make you think. I'm afraid their standard white is too muddy and might look dirty. ?
