In this article, I would like to introduce you to a timeless kitchen design element that can be added to your kitchen remodeling with a variety of costs. Mullion Kitchen Cabinet Doors will pamper your kitchen and also help to show your personality. Really effective way of displaying your dinnerware or kitchen accessories and a really reflective way of perspective even if it is used over the glass doors or mirrored doors.
Confused with Mullion, Muntin, and Grid?
Usually, these three terms substitute each other with a nuance that is only recognized by the interior designers. Mullion, Muntin, and Grid actually are used to express all exterior designs as window treatments.
The oldest is Muntin, which separates individually panes of glass and is used for strengthening against hurricanes and heavy wind.
The second oldest is Grid, which protects the house from burglary and is made of iron or heavy wood just like Muntin.
The newest addition is the Mullion, which can be applied from the inside and/or outside for more decorative, artistic ways. Even though Mullion is the youngest, according to Designing Buildings Wiki, the use of the mullions dates back to the 10th century.
They all run with horizontal and vertical lines and some steam bending arches made of cherry and alder woods from the Gothic era.
