mountain contemporary

At Bentwood Luxury Kitchens, we are very excited to share a special Dealer project, as well as highlight true professionals in the kitchen business. One of our newest dealers is Al Rosenthal of Alpine Kitchen Design located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  We originally met Al at our KBIS booth when exhibiting at the Orlando and Las Vegas trade shows-- “This booth really got my attention,” Al shared.  “A high-quality product with full range of door styles and finishes was something I was looking for.” So, when the time was right, Bentwood Owner Kevin Bryant was pleased to set Al up as a new dealer and welcome him into the Bentwood family. But a special treat was working with Al on his personal mountain contemporary kitchen.

Selecting Natural Stone for Your Kitchen and Bath Projects

natural stone

Natural stone is a beautiful choice for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, and backsplashes. Stone slabs showcase Mother Nature’s artistry, as every rock quarried from the earth has its unique color, veining, and pattern. Plus, natural stone has manageable maintenance, exceptional durability and is the gold standard in a luxury kitchen or bath. At Bentwood Luxury Kitchens, we want to share our experience designing with natural stone, as this is an important component of a project, which includes overall aesthetic and cost.

What to Consider When Selecting Hardware for Custom Made Cabinets

custom made cabinets – Bentwood Luxury Kitchens

Decorative Hardware for custom made cabinets has a big impact on the total appearance of a room, and speaks to the overall design and aesthetic. This is an opportunity to ‘go bold' and let the hardware become a star component, or ‘blend in’ and complement the overall design. Most importantly hardware must function well for the homeowner and their lifestyle—from a busy family kitchen to a downtown city loft. We say it should feel comfortable in your hand and easily open your cabinetry and appliances. So, as you are defining your preferences for custom cabinetry, the same should be done for decorative hardware. This component is part of your budget and most likely will take some time to fulfill the order. At Bentwood, we are here to make some suggestions from excellent industry resources.
