Things to Consider Before Choosing Your Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets are an essential part of any kitchen, they have to be both beautiful and functional, So you want to make sure you do your research to make the right decision. 

Choosing cabinets for a kitchen renovation can be daunting, with so many variables to consider including construction method, size, and material. But whatever your budget may be, it’s important to choose cabinets that fit both your stuff and your style. Here are some tips to help you navigate the cabinet selection process: Choose a construction method -Consider the size of your kitchen -Think about what materials will work best in your space -And finally, don’t forget to stay within your budget! Let’s go over these more closely.

  • Types: Kitchen cabinets come in 3 different types:

           – Stock cabinets: If you’re on a budget, stock cabinets are the way to go. You can find them at most home improvement centers, and they usually come pre-assembled. However, note that your color, material, and style options may be limited. Also, it’ll probably take a few weeks for them to be delivered.

          – Custom: With custom cabinets, you get to pick the size, style, material, color, and finish. You also have the option for one-of-a-kind features such as an appliance garage or coffee station. They may also boast furniture touches like bun feet or leaded glass doors. Custom cabinetry takes more time to produce than regular cabinetry but it is worth the wait because of the high level of craftsmanship involved.

           – Semi-custom: Semi-custom cabinets are a great option if you want to add your personal touch to your kitchen. You can choose from a variety of extra details, like different drawer sizes or door finishes.

  • Size: Before you pick out the cabinet style you want, think about what sizes will accommodate your cookware, gadgets, and pantry items. Consider what areas lack storage space regarding height, width, and depth. Consider the basic sized available, for example, Most stock cabinets range in width from 12 to 36 inches, Wall cabinets can range in height from 12 to 42 inches, and Standard wall cabinets are usually 24 inches deep. Always remember that other manufacturers might present alternative height and width options. Plus, custom cabinetry can be adjusted to any area.
  • Frame or frameless: Cabinets with a face frame are reinforced with a structure attached to the front of the cabinet. This allows for thinner cabinets that can fit into tighter spaces. The defining characteristic of frameless cabinets is that the doors and drawers attach directly to the cabinet box, which is thicker than average. (To ensure durability, look for options with cabinet boxes at least half-inch thick or made from more substantial materials like plywood instead of particleboard.) With no face frame extending past the storage area, frameless cabinets provide easier access to their full interior capacity. A popular European style, frameless designs often lend a contemporary air to kitchens.
  • Set a budget: Before purchasing kitchen cabinets, contemplate your goals for the home. If you’re planning on selling the house or renting it out, you might select cheaper options because a kitchen remodel generally speaking does not have the best ROI. On the other hand, if you’re trying to create your dream kitchen that you’ll enjoy for many years down the road, then investing in mid-to-high-end cabinets makes more sense. 
  • Get the help of a professional: To ensure you are making the right decision for your needs, expectations, and budget is always better to get the help of a professional. They know what they´re doing, and they have the expertise and knowledge to take your ideas and make them come true!
