Kitchen Remodeling Inspiration

Is your kitchen in sad shape? Well, the amazing styles and variations of Cliq Studios Kitchen Cabinets will definitely inspire you to at least think about taking the first step to giving your kitchen the TLC it deserves. If you aren’t able to remodel right now, or are happy with your kitchen, then just sit back and enjoy the eye candy.



I don’t really know too much about cabinetry, but even after browsing their site for 20 minutes, the idea of having to order, select, and design cabinets for a kitchen seems much less daunting. The Cliq studios site literally walks you through every step. I was really surprised that they give very detailed advice by having pages such as “Design Principles,” “Needs and Lifestyle,” “Work Triangle,” (an important aspect in kitchen design), and “Creating an Idea File.” They also really pride themselves on their free design service, where a designer will guide you through the process of kitchen design from beginning to end.

The cabinet ordering process seems very clear and comprehensive as well. The fun part is all of the styles and colors of cabinetry you have to choose from. They have a plethora of door styles, wood species, designer paint options, and hardware to choose from. Below are a few screenshots of the ordering process.


Most importantly to me, and I’m sure to most consumers, are photos of actual customers’ kitchens and reviews. So, below are photos of REAL kitchens belonging to Cliq Studios customers.

A Savannah kitchen

I also love the backsplash of this kitchen, and the 2-drawer unit to the right of the dishwasher.

Once I own a home, and if I ever get to model a kitchen to my needs, I will add a built in shelf for cookbooks.

A Chevy Chase, MD kitchen (I live in Chevy Chase, too!) You can probably tell I really lean towards white cabinetry. I never really realized that until I reviewed all of the photos I pulled for this post!

In summary, if you are thinking about remodeling your kitchen, bath, or laundry room, Cliq Studios definitely looks like a studio you should consider for your cabinetry needs! Do any of these kitchens speak to you?

I highly recommend white cabinetry. So classic. We remodeled our small kitchen last summer and it made the space feel larger. I never tire of walking in there and I'm constantly inspired to cook.

I agree that their site makes you want to add things to your own kitchen. It almost makes you jealous! It also appears that they make good quality products as well. Very good write up and observations in this post!

this blog is actually an advertisement posted by Cliq Studios. Has anyone used their product? I can find nothing but paid sponsorships regarding their products.

^Anon, there aren't that many unpaid reviews of Cliq, but the ones that exist all seem to be good. Here are links I found:

Ugh, we saw your review, and ordered from them.... Unlike you we had an awful experience.
You can read about it here. I'm sure we haven't been the only ones, but its sure is hard to find anything but glowing reviews on their site. :

I think my wife would love that white kitchen in the second photo. We’re currently in the process of remodeling our kitchen, and she wants it to be just as beautiful as that. The contractors are doing well so far. I hope we can achieve that kind of loveliness for our kitchen. I’ll show this to her! :)

White cabinets are usually your best bet – they’re easy to customize and will match just about any d├ęcor style. I’m looking to buy a condominium and a lot of the appeal when people consider one property over another is how the kitchen and bathrooms are decorated. I believe that unless you own the place and have done those rooms completely in your own style, stay with simple white and clean lines. A prospective buyer may otherwise not agree with your taste.

Amazing - I agree with white cabinets!
