Choosing The Right Kitchen Cabinets
What kind of wood? What style door? What color finish? And once style is determined, there is still more to figure out, including construction, length of warranty and accessories. With all this in mind, we’ve compiled some tips to make the decision-making process for kitchen cabinets as easy as possible.
Look for a balance of design and functionality:
Ask yourself if your kitchen functions well with the way you live. Cabinets with your most frequently used items should be located and arranged most conveniently, with items you don’t use everyday stored out of the way. The design and style of your kitchen cabinets should also fit your own personal taste.
Know your style. Identification of your own personal decorative style is key to selecting the right look for your cabinets. By doing a little bit of style research ahead of time, you insure a final design that fits with your personal tastes and preferences.
Consider the surrounding area. Look for a type of wood and finish that will complement your other furnishings. For example, if your kitchen opens directly into a dining or living area, choose kitchen cabinets that enhances the items in that room.
Examine cabinet construction:
Compare the different types of cabinetry offered – stock, semi-custom and custom – and what kind of joints, hardware and support structures they are built with. Look at cabinets inside and out and consider how much wear-and-tear they’ll receive in your home.
Add Style Upgrades:
Finishing touches can make a big difference in the look of the entire room. Features such as; Dove Tail Hinges, Crown Molding, Pantrys, Roll out drawers, Special Racks, Trash Bin, & Automatic closing drawers. Rope moldings, glass doors and decorative hardware are just a few examples of upgrades that can add dramatic depth and character to your design. After all, it’s not just about cabinets. It’s about creating a more convenient, comfortable home for the way you live.
