If you have been following along, you know we are under major construction in our kitchen. You can see part 1 and part 2 of our kitchen renovation to get caught up if you are behind. Today I wanted to share a bit about our fantastic sponsor, MasterBrand Cabinets.
We started the design process months ago and finally, this past summer, we were ready to undertake the massive job of gutting our kitchen. You ask, who is the cabinet company and where are they?
MasterBrand is the largest cabinet manufacturers in North America and is the parent company for a number of different cabinet brands. We chose their Diamond Line because it provided gorgeous design and storage options and most important, high quality solid wood options.
Diamond is a subsidiary of MasterBrand Cabinets, Inc., an industry leader that comprises of quality cabinet brands. Since 1926, MasterBrand Cabinets has earned its reputation as one of America’s top cabinetmakers and Diamond has contributed significantly to this achievement.
What I love about this cabinet line, is its stylish door options, organizational drawer and cabinet features and an abundance of color finishes to choose from.
We choose the Maple Anden 5 piece square door style in white. You have to see all the stain and color finishes available, it’s so much fun to choose! Their website is very easy to use and you can build what you want.
Of course, colors always look different online vs. in person but I must say, their site is really good at giving you a clear image of what you built. The colors are very close, at least in my experience
. Choosing a wood species can also be a little challenging, especially if you don’t know anything about wood. We didn’t really know what we wanted but the one thing we did know, was that we wanted solid wood. A wood that would last for years and hold up to everyday wear and tear. Of course, your budget will play a huge role in what species of wood you choose.
Oak, maple and cherry are very popular wood choices for cabinets and for us, we didn’t want to see a lot of the wood grain so maple ended up being our favorite. It’s all a matter of preference. I highly recommend you touch and feel a door sample in person.
Here is what the white Anden door looks like in a bathroom.
One of my favorite features of our new kitchen is the storage and organizational options.
This pullout cabinet is to die for!
Pull out shelving unit for pots and pans.
You have no idea how excited we are over the pull out wooden shelves.
Whoever invented the pull out utility cabinet is a genius. Isn’t this thing amazing?
