Deciding On A Trim Design For My Studio Cupboard Doorways & Drawer Fronts

5 min read

Two days in the past, I went to House Depot and acquired an entire bunch of small trim in order that I may add a trim design to all of my IKEA Veddinge doorways and drawer fronts for the studio cupboards. Yesterday, I returned all of that trim. 😀 After giving it some thought, I made a decision to order Overlays for these cupboards. I hate that I didn’t make that call till yesterday, as a result of now that can delay the completion of my cupboards. However I actually like the concept of utilizing exact laser lower designs to decorate up these cupboards over chopping 100 little items of trim and making an attempt to connect them on exactly. I’ve carried out that earlier than many instances, and it’s doable, however I simply wish to strive one thing completely different this time.

So for those who’re new to this studio mission, that is what I’m working with. I’ve an extended 20-foot wall with decrease IKEA Sektion cupboards the complete width of the wall, after which on the outer sections, I’ll be including 60-inch-high higher cupboards which is able to cowl the areas of the wall with out wallpaper.

I’ll be portray the doorways and drawer fronts after they’re trimmed out, so I haven’t been in a rush to get these placed on simply but. However listed below are the main points of what I purchased. All the #2 cupboards are 30-inch-wide, two door cupboards with cabinets. The #3 cupboards are 36-inch-wide, three-drawer cupboards. And the one #4 cupboard is a six-drawer, 36-inch-wide cupboard.

After all the Overlay designs, I’ve determined to go together with the Anne panels, which seem like this…

I’ve been making an attempt to resolve precisely how I would like the Overlays to look on my cupboards. I made a decision nearly instantly that I didn’t need a separate Overlay panel for every particular person door and drawer entrance. I believe that might begin to look too busy on such an extended wall with a lot happening. So I do know that at the least for the 4 double door cupboards, I would like one Overlay Anne panel to cowl each doorways, lower within the center in order that the doorways will open correctly.

However past that, I don’t know. I’ve give you three completely different choices for the drawer sections, and I can’t resolve which one I like essentially the most.

Possibility 1 – One panel per part

That is what I had initially thought simply to maintain issues from wanting too busy. I deliberate to make use of one panel (which I’ve proven in darker pink/purple as a result of my cupboards will all be painted the identical shade after the panels are hooked up) per cupboard part. That signifies that one panel would span the double door sections, in addition to the three-drawer sections, and the center six-drawer part.

I do know it’s exhausting to see the element on a mock up of such an extended wall, so right here’s a peek at simply the left half of the mock up, which reveals the complete panel on all three kinds of cupboards.

I used to be positive that’s what I needed till I noticed the mock up, and now I’m not so positive. Whereas I didn’t need it wanting too busy, I nearly marvel if that’s too plain. So then I attempted one thing completely different for the drawers.

Possibility 2 – One panel per door part, massive drawers handled individually

I like that this one mixes issues up a bit. This will get away from that plain, everything-the-same look that Possibility 1 gave me, and I don’t assume it seems too busy. I wasn’t positive about that center drawer part (these drawers fronts are solely 5 inches excessive), so I attempted out utilizing the identical dimension panel on these as are on the bigger drawers.

And as soon as once more, right here’s a better have a look at simply the left half the place you possibly can see the design on all three kinds of cupboards.

However I did discover that they promote Anne panels that space very quick (like 3 inches excessive) and really huge, so that they’re for issues similar to my center drawers. And that leads me to…

Possibility 3 – One panel per door part, all drawers handled individually

I made a decision to present it a strive, and I actually prefer it! I like these small middle drawers, so I actually do like the concept of them being seen by having their very own particular person panels.

Right here’s a closeup have a look at simply the left half displaying the three completely different cupboard varieties.

So I believe these are the three choices, with my favorites being #2 and #3. I simply can’t resolve! It’s that center cupboard with the six drawers that’s the large query for me, and it’s as a result of if I do particular person panels, the corners on these actually quick panels would essentially must be a distinct (smaller) dimension than all the remainder of the panels simply in order that they’ll match on these quick 5-inch-high drawer fronts. And I’m simply unsure how I really feel about that. Would that look cohesive? Or would these smaller corners stick out and never seem like they belong?

Clearly, no matter I do on this lengthy wall shall be replicated on the opposite wall. However that wall is easy since there aren’t any sections with actually quick drawers. Inform me your ideas!
