It’s not as easy to switch styles after a kitchen renovation as it is to donate an out-of-fashion jacket to charity. Decorating fads come and go, but consider kitchen elements proven to stand the test of time. Painted cabinetry has been popular for several years and isn’t going away anytime soon. While the appeal of kitchen cabinets painted grey or blue is definitely strong, for longevity, white is the winner. White cabinets go with any design style and appeal to a wide variety of home buyers at resale. Complete the look with white appliances which are easier to keep clean than stainless. Glass front cabinets are a staple in traditional kitchens but have been appearing in transitional or modern kitchens too. They are great for displaying interesting serving pieces, decorative accessories and heirlooms. Glass front cabinets usually line the uppers, which makes the kitchen look more open, but a few closed cabinets are more functional to hide everyday items. LED lighting can be creatively installed along toe kicks as nightlights, on the inside of cabinet doors to show off china, and concealed in crown molding to wash ceilings with light. LEDs are energy efficient and emit virtually no heat so you can keep them on forever without burning cabinets or walls. Quartz countertops require less upkeep than granite or marble and offer lasting appeal. Plus the shimmering surface is less dominant than other materials so you’re unlikely to tire of it. Ideas that used to be great but are on their way out include a microwave installed over the range and a hanging pot rack. An updated trend is to keep the microwave and cookware low where all family members have easy access. Simplicity also reigns supreme. For a timeless kitchen, no more faux finishes, distressing or busy backsplash patterns. Cornerstone Cabinet Company experts can help you design a stylish space with true staying power.
Our Customers Say:
Hey Chris! This is Monica T! You did my kitchen cabinets and built-ins by my fireplace a few years ago. I had a friend ask me about them and it reminded that I’ve been wanting to tell you how much I LOVE the work you did. The cabinets are fabulous! The island and custom sink make me so happy. The drawers for spices in my island (your idea) are absolutely perfect and way better than having them in a cabinet. Thank you SO much for being patient with me and getting it exactly right. I still love them!
Chris now that the project is complete Jan and I wish to thank you for a job well done!! we are so pleased with it and the professional and courteous installers we had here doing the work. We will happily recommend you and your company to our friends. Thanks again!!!
Thank you for your patience with us. Most of all thank you for the sharing of your experience and design knowledge. I know that centering the sink is great! Not buying the silverware insert saved us money.
I was very impressed with the customer service with Chris Boulton with Cornerstone Cabinets. He went above and beyond to help me even with a small request I had.
Our new counters and cabinets are gorgeous! They came up with an awesome layout that fit our needs and delivered on every promise. If you are doing a kitchen remodel I highly recommend you give Mark a call.
We had a relatively small job - replacing toe kicks in the bathroom. Oak Craft Cabinets, who supplied the cabinets, recommended Cornerstone, who is one of their dealers. Chris [owner] agreed to do it despite its small size. Several issues cropped up pre-installation which were successfully resolved. The installer, Tim, did a beautiful job and solved some major unforeseen installation issues. The price was very fair. I recommend Cornerstone without reservation.
Cornerstone Cabinets came to my home in Scottsdale and performed a full kitchen remodel. This included a full kitchen cabinet makeover, along with brand new Marlam granite countertops. I was incredibly impressed with their cleanliness and friendly crew. I would highly recommend Cornerstone Cabinets to anyone in Scottsdale looking for a kitchen remodel in the future.
I have known Chris and used his company multiple times over the past decade. He most recently installed custom Oakcraft cabinets in my Gilbert, AZ home and did an excellent job. I absolutely love my new kitchen remodel! His crew was super friendly, courteous, and worked cleanly and efficiently! Anyone looking for a bathroom remodel or a kitchen remodel in Phoenix AZ should use Cornerstone Cabinets, you will LOVE them, I promise!
