Cabinetry is looking more and more like furniture every day, and that's the way consumers want it. Whether it's a simple kitchen upgrade or putting together a whole new look for the bathroom, homeowners look to cabinetry to set the tone, and manufacturers are offering all kinds of new details to make their cabinets unique. From specialty finishes to intricately carved details, the following products are all about getting that custom look.
Kraftmaid. Cashmere, one of three new glazes, provides a warm, versatile background on the Recessed Panel Maple Doors with Angle Profile shown in this kitchen. The door features square veneer recessed panels, a 2¾-inch-wide rail and stile full overlay design, and a five-piece recessed drawer front. (888) 562-7744. www.kraftmaid.com.

Yorktowne. Graceful detail and intricate carving are featured on the Décor Creations Accents line, featuring carved decorative corbels, arched valances, rosettes, architectural columns, and furniture feet and legs.

Starmark. The Licorice finish provides a rich backdrop for a variety of decorating styles, from country to contemporary. The slightly distressed look is achieved by rubbing the finish, which exposes the wood. A nickel glaze is then applied to highlight the wood and door profiles. Shown is the Accord style door in White Oak with Licorice finish. (800) 594-9444. www.starmarkcabinetry.com.
