Social media platforms like Instagram have changed how we source inspiration, especially in visually-oriented fields like interior design. Every now and then, we love diving into our feed and exploring how talented home design influencers put their own unique signatures on spaces. This time around, we’re spotlighting modern kitchen dresser ideas. Used in country cottages and farmhouses for centuries, kitchen display cabinets have become a much-loved feature in modern homes.
Looking for inspiration? Read on as we spotlight Insta-approved kitchen dresser ideas, courtesy of some of our favourite interior design influencers.
Think outside the box
Who says kitchen dressers should be used exclusively to store glassware, crockery and other essentials? If you’re looking for modern kitchen dresser ideas that make a statement, consider using your cabinet to showcase treasures. We love what interior design guru @joeykendalbrown has done with her kitchen display cabinet with glass doors.
She’s used the shelves to show off one-of-a-kind treasures like wooden vases, framed artwork, woven baskets, potted flowers and wait for it… decorative cushions. This last addition is a stroke of genius and brings a serious dash of warmth and cosiness to the space. The stacked pillows add much-needed texture to the display and are a clever way to show off your favourite linen, even when it’s not in use.
Shades of grey
We love bringing the visions of our customers to life and we were thrilled when Joey asked us to match a Florence dresser to an existing piece of furniture painted in Pavillon Grey, a shade by British paint manufacturer, Farrow & Ball. Our workshop team had a blast ordering the Dorset-made paint and transforming our Florence kitchen display cabinet with glass doors into a custom piece.
Modern and minimalist, grey is a wonderful choice for heirloom-quality pieces like the Florence kitchen display cabinet with glass doors. It’s neutral enough to complement farmhouse-style interiors yet will give your home a contemporary touch. If you have a different shade of grey in mind, don’t hesitate to contact our design team. Our custom colour service makes it easy to design bespoke furniture in almost any shade.
Blending old and new
In interior stylist Sophie Doherty’s home, you’ll see an unapologetic mix of old and new. She’s currently renovating a beautiful Georgian manor house and we love her take on our best-selling Florence dresser, painted with a rich and buttery shade of truffle. Sophie’s used the open shelving to showcase both practical and decorative items, with wicker baskets at the base to store bulkier bits and pieces.
It’s no wonder Sophie’s home is coveted as a location for filming and photoshoots. We love scrolling through her feed and discovering new ways to blend the old and new. And of course, finding inspiration for kitchen dresser ideas.
Bright and breezy
Layering shades of white is a lovely way to style your kitchen dresser. White is a staple in country-inspired interiors and @withloveabigailx has mastered the art of mixing different hues and textures to suit the season.
In her take on our much-loved Florence dresser, you’ll see a constellation of creams, champagnes and ivories used for the accessories. She uses dried flowers and herbs to add a splash of colour, with touches of wood and wicker for texture. The result is a decorative yet understated look. Definitely one of our favourite ways to style a kitchen display cabinet with glass doors.
Get smart about space
Kitchen cabinets aren’t just for large spaces. We love seeing our cleverly designed corner kitchen cabinets used in small kitchens and dining rooms. The unique triangular design instantly transforms a defunct corner into a practical and stylish space. Check out chic yet practical kitchen cabinet ideas for corners, like this one by @ahomefitforkings. Thanks to the glass doors at the top, you can showcase your favourite crockery while making sure it’s within easy reach at dinner time.
