The Many Facets of Custom Cupboards
Who says the art of printing is dead? You may be devouring novels on your Kindle but printing is very much alive at Custom Cupboards. Their Facets program allows you to bring a new level of personalization to your kitchen, bath or anywhere you have cabinets through digital printing.
With Facets you can have a truly artful kitchen enhanced with your own original artwork or photography. If you can dream it they can do it. Just remember you can’t reproduce work that is copyrighted. That is a no no, but you knew that, yes?
Mael Hernandez, President of this Wichita Kansas based company, was quoted in the Wichita Business Journal as saying,“It’s all about the trend in personalization. We think this is going to change the cabinet industry. It’s very exciting for us.”
Custom Cupboards uses patent pending digital printing technology to stylize cabinet fronts with textures, patterns, art, photography and even typography.
What do you think? Remember it’s just an accent, doesn’t have to be on every cabinet. In fact, less is definitely more in this case. You’re creating a focal point which gets diluted when over done. In case you’re wondering, Facets would add about 15% to the cost of an average 13 cabinet, L-shaped kitchen if you did it on say three doors. If you’d like to explore adding a new “facet” to your kitchen, I’d love to help you do it!
