One of the most common homeowner requests when planning a new, remodeled, or refaced kitchen is to add or upgrade an island. WalzCraft not only has the Cabinet Doors, Drawer Fronts, and Drawer Boxes covered, we also offer a variety of functional and decorative enhancements that will help customize your kitchen island design. Below are seven examples of how to use WalzCraft Cabinet Components to create a custom Kitchen Island for your clients.
Two-tone kitchen cabinets are a popular design trend, and the island is the ideal place to incorporate visual interest. Try pairing painted cabinets with stained wood cabinets to create a focal point, as well as add depth and texture. Don’t forget to order Outlet and Vent covers in matching wood and finish colors.
Cabinet Valances are a great way to customize an opening between cabinets or hide countertop supports. Our Upper Cabinet Valances are available in a variety of patterns and your choice of outside edge profile. If you are using the opening for dining or a workstation, then consider adding shelf supports or decorative corbels for additional support.
Refaced Shaker Island
This Shaker Style Island received a facelift as part of a refacing project. After refacing the base of the island, this customer installed corner moldings to hide exposed panel edges. Next, they attached Onlay Frames to create the look of wainscoting. The addition of new Drawer Fronts and a custom Bread/Cutting Board complete this refaced island.
Beautiful Butcher Blocks
Our Butcher Block Countertops are a great way to add more contrast and warmth to your kitchen plan. We offer standard and custom design patterns in a variety of Wood Species options. The example above showcases a custom-shaped butcher block paired with our Applied Molding Cabinet Doors & Drawer Fronts.
Rustic & Farmhouse Designs
Get the popular rustic or farmhouse look by adding a beadboard or shiplap panel to the backside of the island. To achieve this look, order Sheet Goods with your choice of vertical or horizontal Center Panel Face Routs (CPFR). Table legs/posts and shelving make it easy to add dine-in seating and storage to finish out this design.
Custom End Panels
Our non-catalog team will help customize a door or wainscot to create custom island end panels for easy installation. The example above features a custom X Pattern Cabinet Door with Mortise and Tenon construction. Our X pattern doors are available in a variety of Profile, Wood Species, and Finish options.
