Enhance Awkward Wall Space

In the kitchen pictured above, reduced-depth black Shaker-style cabinets create a shallow pantry wall. Topped with crown molding, the pantry reflects the style of the original buffet in the adjacent dining space.

Modify depth of a section of cabinets for a truly unique effect or to solve a tricky problem. Our designers increase and decrease cabinet depth to create buffets and bureaus. As well as to line awkward spaces with shallow pantries, present a smooth line on an irregular wall, or break a horizontal line to add visual interest.

Traditional Design Features

This charming transitional design features a drawer base, bumped out three inches and finished with furniture feet at the toekick. The effect, that of a bureau, is enhanced by the contrast between the white cabinets and dark hardwood floor. Bump-outs and furniture feet often add a traditional feel to any kitchen design. However, the space may require some accent rugs or floor plants to help blend the contrasting features.

Semi-Custom Buffet Cabinets

Here the designer framed the window with a pair of glass-door wall cabinets, creating a sparkling buffet. Also, the under mount lighting adds a glowing effect to the windows natural light. Kitchen buffets offer a great space for displaying decorative objects and hosting food platters with company.

By working with a semi-custom cabinet line, you can get the custom features you want while keeping your total cabinet cost at a reasonable level. One of our professional designers would be happy to help you create a unique kitchen plan. We never charge for kitchen design services.

    We are looking to do something similar! Any chance you still know about how deep the black shallow depth shaker wall cabinet is and how wide the path is between the stools and the cabinet in the first pic? Thank you!

      The bottom row of cabinets are 9″ deep and the top row are 8″ deep. Both rows are wall cabinets that have been reduced in depth from standard wall cabinets. CliqStudios offers depth modification where a wall cabinet can be 6″ to 24″ deep. The dimension only relates to the cabinet box exterior and does not include the doors.
