Whether you’re building a new home and want to create your dream kitchen or are replacing cabinets in your current kitchen, there are several things to consider to ensure you’re making a great long-term decision for your cabinets.
While it’s important to consider the aesthetic that cabinets create for your space, it is also important to think of their functionality, the storage space they will provide and more.
When you do your research and make a selection that meets your design and functional needs, you will be able to enjoy your new cabinets for years to come.
Have them match your design and style preferences
One of the most important aspects of choosing the perfect kitchen cabinets is making sure you truly love their appearance. This may seem obvious, but you’ll want to pick something you can envision being in your kitchen for years to come. Many times, homeowners make the mistake of focusing on something that matches the rest of the home, instead of making sure they really like the design.
It’s suggested to go with a door profile and color that is a bit neutral and to pick a material that is known to be durable.
Make functionality a priority
After you have chosen your color and material, you need to make sure the cabinets are functional. This will require you to consider what you’ll be building, what you’ll be storing, how many shelves will be required in each cabinet, the number of cabinets you want above and below the counter and more.
When you take functionality into account it can help avoid placing cabinets in areas where they cannot fully open, where there isn’t enough space for your kitchenware and more.
Storage space is important
As referenced above, you will need to take storage space into consideration when picking your cabinets, as that is really their number one function.
You should take stock of the items that you will be storing and where you want them to be stored. This will help you determine how many cabinets you require above the countertops for things such as glasses and plates, and how many cabinets you need below the counters for pots, pans and other belongings.
