What Is Wellness Design? What Does It Have To Do With Cabinets?

Wellness design is design that employs materials that are conducive to wellness. This relates to several things in your kitchen from the paint color to even the specific brand of your cabinetry. The most basic principle of wellness design is to choose soothing colors. This may seem pretty intuitive, but it’s important to choose colors in your home that create a sense of calm. Here we can provide you with kitchen and bath cabinetry in a wide range of soothing and natural colors. Another principle of wellness design is lighting. It’s important to choose lighting fixtures that give off a welcoming warm, welcoming light.

Possibly the most important and direct principle of wellness design is the use of materials. Be sure to use materials that are environmentally conscious and don’t use too many harsh chemicals to manufacture. Off-gassing is a very real thing and can directly affect yours and your family’s health. Here at Cabinet Factory were proud to carry several brands that pay close attention to their manufacturing quality. In fact, our primary cabinet supplier Koch Cabinets continues to meet the requirements to be a part of the KCMA’s “Environmental Stewardship Program”.
