STYLE FILE

Cabinets in deep wood hues such as chestnut, cherry, or mahogany are generally used for formal or traditional settings, though dark woods are also associated with Arts and Crafts, rustic country, and Colonial kitchens. In this model kitchen for Canac, detailed maple cabinets with a chestnut finish create a kitchen with Tuscan styling.

With their versatility and functionality, islands have become a ubiquitous kitchen element. In addition to storage and extra counter space, they can be plumbed for a sink, wired for any number of electrical appliances, have gas lines and vents installed for cooktops and grills, and be designed with multiple counter heights for comfortable working and eating.

In addition to the variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, tiles are practical: durable, affordable, and easy to maintain. Now their design possibilities are expanding even further, thanks to an array of new and exotic field, trim, and decorative tiles.

problems & solutions

I redid my kitchen with top-of-the-line painted maple cabinets, but there are cracks between the stiles and the rails of the new cabinet doors. The kitchen company that sold the cabinets to me said that the cracks were normal, as they were smaller than the thickness of a piece of paper.
