It's important that the various elements of a design converse with each other. In this kitchen (left), the pattern of the muntins in the cabinet doors reflects those of the adjacent window. The scale of the upper cabinet is large. It is wider than usual, and the doors are hung on standard brass hinges. All of these style cues complement the age of the house and help to distinguish this cabinetwork from factory-made versions.
Cabinets match the windows. Glass-doored cabinets mimic the unique look of the window muntins and create a visual connection.
