If you live in Southlake, TX - consider us for all your kitchen remodeling needs. Common kitchen remodeling terms below:
A switch is the mechanism used to open and close an electric circuit. Switches may be single throw or double throw. A single throw switch opens or closes a single wire in a circuit. A double throw switch can be placed in any one of these positions:
- To open a circuit
- To connect the single wire to the other wire in the box.
- To connect a single wire to either of the two other ires in the box.
Switches controlling general lighting or appliance are connected to the hot line of a circuit; the ground circuit is never opened. The switch may be single-throw single-pole type if only one switch is to control one or more fixtures or outlets. Dimmer switches in a kitchen vary the voltage supplied to a fixture. The voltage may be lowered with a variable resistor, transformer or a transistor. Most dimmer switches used for fluorescent or other lamps are of the transistor variety. Usually, they include an on/off switch to complete the circuit.
Southlake Kitchen Remodeling Considerations - Harmony in a Kitchen
Architectural unity is a powerful kitchen design element. The same molding may frame windows and doors that repeat similar vertical and horizontal lines. Inserting a corner wall might prevent monotony and add architectural interest. Upper and lower cabinets are often broken by a window. Molding cabinet knobs and color are the unifying force on most kitchen cabinets. Variety is often shown in the placement of kitchen knobs. Glass doors break up an expanse of solid cabinetry. Variety is also achieved by the display items. The frames of the glass doors are the same as the solid ones, creating a sense of unity.
When you think of rhythm, music usually comes to mind, but there is also a rhythm you take in with your eyes. And like musical rhythm, visual rhythm can vary from the simple to the complex. Emphasis occurs when one element of a kitchen takes on more importance than other elements. For example, in a kitchen, a hood with an unusual shape or on made from a striking material (a popular idea when renovating a kitchen in Southlake) may stand out among a wall of appliances. A focal-point wall has a color or decorative paint treatment different from other solid-color walls. A stone fireplace may dominate a dining or sitting area in an open kitchen, spotlighting that particular space.
Flooring with strong variations in color and grain creates a vibrant visual rhythm that is matched by the equally strong grain of the cabinets. Both the flooring and cabinets are made of hickory. Rhythm and emphasis are evident in this contemporary kitchen. Color, shape and line work together to create a sense of movement in a kitchen.
Common Kitchen Layout Problems Resolved - Semi Custom Kitchen Cabinets
Between stock and custom kitchen cabinets, there is a midrange option that allows you to choose special sizes, configurations, and finishes without paying top dollar. Semi-custom cabinets are manufactured, but they come with hundreds of standard options such s wood species, colors and finishes, and a wide variety of fixtures and matching moldings. Many manufacturers will even allow you to ask for slight modifications if you can't find exactly what you want. Quality semi-custom cabinets cost more than stock cabinets - often at least double - and delivery can take up to eight weeks in some cases. However, you'll get essentially custom quality, making the trade off worth it.
