Designing a Contemporary Kitchen with Custom Cabinetry

If you love to spend time in your Chevy Chase kitchen, you understand how important it is to design a contemporary, unique, and efficient space. You want a kitchen that appeals to your aesthetic, but it’s crucial that the space also adheres to your needs as a homeowner. The room may look visually stunning, but does it provide you with an adequate area to cook, clean, and entertain? Discover how you can design a contemporary kitchen with striking displays from Jay Rambo Cabinetry and Signature Kitchens, Additions, and Baths!

Frameless Cabinetry

Traditionally, cabinets were built using a framed construction, meaning that the rails and stiles formed a frame at the front of the cabinet box. The frame resembles that of a flat picture frame and was originally designed to add dimension to the front door. Frameless cabinetry was once popular in European homes, but is making its way into American kitchens and baths. Frameless cabinetry, or full access cabinetry, offers greater accessibility and a sleek, modern aesthetic. Frameless cabinetry by Jay Rambo offers a lift system which opens and closes the cabinet doors electronically. With the touch of a hand, homeowners can access their cabinets with ease! The interior of the cabinet features clear, plexiglass shelving with LED lighting to illuminate the contents.

Servo-Drive Drawers

The cabinetry and drawers use a servo-drive system to open and close with the touch of a hand. The interior of the drawers features adjustable dividers so that homeowners can organize items safely. The underlighting on the countertops illuminates the contents of the drawer, so homeowners can access items without illuminating the entire room. A floor level drawer is reserved for dog bowls, pet food, and other necessities for animal-lovers!

Smart Storage

The best kitchens contain smart, efficient storage! Rather than storing your knives on the countertops, consider a knife drawer to increase safety and extend the life of your kitchenware. Roll-out trays are perfect for everyday items that you need to access quickly. A spice pull-out allows homeowners to maintain all of their spices in one, easy-to-access location! Rotating posts allows homeowners to store plates safely, regardless of their size and shape!
