Cabinets might not be the “showstopper piece” in your kitchen renovation, but they are essential to a successful design. After all, when it comes to a kitchen remodel, you need to combine functionality with gorgeous design. Here are 3 factors to consider when you pick out your custom kitchen cabinets.
Start by thinking about your personal style, and the overall look that you want to create. A traditional design might look better with wooden cabinet doors, while a more contemporary design could use glass, lacquer, and monochrome black and white.
However, don’t forget to think about the practical questions. Will the cabinets be easy to clean? Do you need to consider environmental factors, like humidity? Make the right decision now, and your investment in kitchen remodeling will pay out for years to come.
Next up, think about how your kitchen cabinetry will fit into the space. Kitchen cabinets are for storage, and you can decide whether to make that a design feature or tuck the cabinets out of sight.
There are lots of ways to make your kitchen cabinets blend into the background. Look for colors and surfaces that match the rest of your design. Consider using J-shaped scoop handles instead of handles that stick out from the surface, for a seamless look.
Alternatively, you can put your custom cabinets in pride of place. Use colorful accents or glass doors to put your kitchen tools and pantry on display. This creates an authentic look, reminiscent of farmhouse kitchens and old-fashioned country houses.
Finally, think about exactly where you want to place your kitchen cabinets. You’ll need to consider the other elements in your kitchen – such as countertops, kitchen islands, and lighting.
Think about all the people in your household: will they be able to reach high cabinets, or is it more helpful to fix the cabinets at ground level? And of course, if you have small children, then countertop or wall-mounted cabinets are a good idea to keep little hands safe.
