In a trend toward contemporary kitchens with painted cabinetry and clutter-free aesthetics, where does that leave us with the style of our drawer organizers and pullout accessories? Maple hardwood will still be prominent, but what about using walnut to offset those white, gray or cream colored cabinets. We are now seeing walnut being used on drop-in and pullout organizers, which can compliment lighter cabinetry in agreeable ways.
White kitchens will continue to be a leading trend, but using a more serious looking dark wood like walnut for drawer organizers can offset the white, gray or cream colored kitchen cabinetry nicely. In a Kitchen & Bath Design News article, Shari McPeek from Rev-A-Shelf mentions, “Color combinations like walnut and orion gray are hitting the market because of how well they work with all designs, especially contemporary and industrial.”
Cut-to-Size Walnut Drawer Organizers
The trim-to-fit organizers are popular due to their customizable aspect. These usually consist of some type of cutlery/utility, drawer peg system or knife block drop-in accessory. Companies like Rev-A-Shelf provide a couple of different starting widths, which can then be trimmed down to fit your exact drawer width.
Using Walnut Within Trash Pullouts
We don’t often think about how our kitchen trash pullouts can co-exist with overall design aspects, but you’d be surprised how versatile some products out there are. Incorporating walnut into your trash pullouts is easier than you think. These options we have in this post are all complete kits, which include the drawer box, slide components, waste cans and door mounting kits. Various sizes are offered in single and double options with 35 and 50 quart cans. Depending on the product, you may need a full height base cabinet to fit a 50 quart waste can. If you need part numbers or details for these options, please let us know.
