Your kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your home. It represents not only a place where you prepare food, but where your family gathers together on a daily basis. As such, choosing the right kitchen cabinets to personalize your kitchen is paramount. Choosing cabinets that not only provide exceptional functionality, but make a statement about you and your family is important. This guide will provide you with a few steps to help you make the correct choice.
Your Current Cabinets
Perhaps the best place to start when wanting to choose new kitchen cabinets, is to determine what is it that you don’t like about your current cabinets? Perhaps the style is dated or they simply lack the functionality you desire. Your major complaint about the current cabinetry will help you to determine which aspects of the cabinet choosing experience is most important to you.
How long do You Plan on Having These Cabinets?
The amount of time you plan on spending in the home will help you to determine the price you are willing to pay. If you are selecting cabinets in anticipation of selling the home, then naturally you will want to pay as little as possible. When considering which kitchen cabinets to purchase, determine what the purpose of the cabinets are. If you intend on staying in the home for a great period of time, then choosing the ideal cabinets is important, independent of relative cost.
Choosing Which Style You Want
The style of the cabinet is important. Getting an idea of the different styles available to you is relatively easy. A good place to start is by looking online to get a feel for what styles are available. However, there is a major drawback to looking at something online versus seeing it in person. Visiting the Michigan parade of homes is a good way to see many different kitchen cabinet styles in person. This will allow you to choose which style is best for your personality, lifestyle and tastes. The style of a cabinet is affected by three primary factors, material, door style and hardware.
Choosing which material is a good way to start. Deciding whether or not you want your cabinets to be a warm oak or an industrial steel will help you to decide the remaining factors.
The door style is perhaps the most expensive part of the kitchen cabinet. Determining exactly what style you will want is important. The door doesn’t have to be made of the same material as the rest of the cabinet, in fact multi material doors are becoming quite popular. For example, a glass door will look particularly good in certain styles of cabinets. However, it is important to think of the upkeep that particular style will require.
The hardware are the handles on the cabinets. These function as an accent which ties the entire cabinet together. It is important to choose hardware that is durable as well as matches the style of cabinet you have selected. Visiting local hardware stores around Michigan is a good way to choose which hardware is best for the style you have chosen.
