Cabinet Trends for Luxury Bathrooms

Luxury builders, remodelers, architects,and interior designers are responding to demand from homeowners, transforming the basic bathroom into a spa-like retreat. Custom cabinetry plays a large part in luxury bathroom design, impacting not only the overall look, but also the functionality of the space. Take a look at some of the top luxury bathroom cabinet trends, according to HGTV Remodels.

Furniture-style bathroom vanity cabinets

Furniture-style vanities– Cabinetry that resembles antique furniture has become a must-have for elegant luxury bathrooms.

Sleek, flat-front cabinetry– European style cabinetry with flat profile doors allows for more storage space, and the doors are much easier to clean.

Open shelving– This look may be trendy right now, but it’s a classic approach that, when combined with closed cabinets, can help you maximize the space in your bathroom design.

Creative storage– Storage is a primary concern in the bathroom, so consider incorporating pull-out organizers, drawer dividers, under-sink drawers, and other innovative solutions to achieve the most effective bathroom remodeling results.

Hidden Tech Trends for Luxury Homes

One of the biggest trends in the luxury home design industry right now is integrated technology, and this is one trend you can count on seeing for a long time to come. Our lives are becoming more and more influenced by technology, so it only makes sense that homeowners are demanding high-tech features integrated into their houses.

Tech trends in home design include hidden speaker systems concealed in lighting as well as central control panels that allow homeowners to control music, lighting, security, heating and air systems, and more, all from a touch-screen. Some integration companies are even using iPads as a “universal remote” of sorts for the same purpose.

One integration trend that is only going to grow more popular is the hidden television. Some televisions are now available in models that, when turned off, look just like an elegant framed mirror. Even more impressive, motorized TV lifts allow the television to appear from out of thin air, emerging from the ceiling, wall, or even at the foot of a bed.

Here at South Shore Millwork, we can work with your home integration company to build a concealed television system that is sure to impress. Take a look at this custom fireplace surround we created to see our work in action- literally! If you are a luxury architect, interior designer, or builder, contact our Boston millwork company today to learn more.

Kitchen Trends for Luxury Homes

The kitchen truly is the heart of the house for most homeowners, which means they may be more likely to spend on quality when it comes to remodeling. Here at South Shore Millwork, we not only create custom moulding, doors, and other architectural details, but also work with luxury kitchen designers to create finely crafted cabinetry for high-end kitchens.

These are a few of the top kitchen design trends for 2012. What do you think; would you use any of them in your next kitchen design project? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.

  • ¬†Light and medium woods are replacing dark woods.
  • Mixing finishes in unexpected ways keeps things interesting, and high gloss finishes are exceptionally stylish.
  • Backsplashes are taking center stage, providing a great opportunity for a dramatic visual statement, with less risk than choosing an over the top cabinet design. Tile is being replaced with glass and even stainless steel.
  • Neutrals- mainly white and gray- are the most popular choices for cabinetry, but designers are adding pops of bold color to liven things up, for instance as an accent wall in the dining area or inside cabinets for a chic surprise.

Millwork Adds Style to Small Spaces

Small spaces may seem unassuming, but as any experienced interior designer or architect knows, these spaces often require the most skillful and imaginative solutions. Creating a profound sense of identity while also providing adequate space for daily activities and storage can be a challenge, but with the help of a luxury millwork provider like South Shore Millwork, you can provide your client with an incredible finished product.

We recently came across a great article in House Beautiful that perfectly illustrates some of the ways in which millwork can add style and function to a small space. Take a look at some of our favorite images below, and visit the article to see them all.

Light colors help make small spaces seem larger, but a plain white box is too boring. Subtle millwork features like columns, ceiling beams and paneling, and even a simple, beautiful door can elevate a space from run-of-the-mill to unforgettable.

This tiny apartment contains oversized personality thanks to wide crown mouldings and another lovely feature- picture frame moulding on the ceiling.

Of course, small spaces still have some practical concerns to fulfill- like holding the occupants’ belongings. This chic, compact residence manages to include a surprising amount of storage, thanks to built-in bookcase stairs. It also makes a wonderful conversation piece!
