The cabinets you buy for your kitchen remodel can have a huge effect on your kitchen when it is complete. Buying the wrong cabinets can make a kitchen look darker, smaller or cheap. Buying the right cabinets can make a space seem bigger, brighter, balanced and give off the aesthetic you are looking for. If you have never purchased cabinets for a kitchen before, you may be unsure how to go about buying the right cabinets. Here are a few factors to consider in order to pick the right cabinets for your kitchen.
One of the first factors to consider when selecting the right cabinets to buy for your kitchen is your budget. There are three primary types of kitchen cabinets: stock, semi-custom, and custom. Custom are the most expensive, with stock being the cheapest and semi-custom falling in the middle. If you are on a tight budget, stock cabinets may be the only option. If money is no option, custom cabinets can give you the exact cabinets you are after.
The Kitchen Layout
The next factor to consider is the kitchen layout. The layout of the kitchen will help you determine what size of cabinets you need, where you need cabinets and which ones will be best for you. It also helps you to measure out the height and width of cabinets you will need and then purchase the stock cabinets that meet the size requirements you have or order semi-custom or custom ones.
The next factor to consider when you are buying cabinets for your new kitchen is the style of cabinets. Right off the bat, you will have to decide between face frame or frameless cabinets. Nearly 2/3rds of cabinets in the United States are face frame cabinets, but the frameless cabinets, also called European cabinets, are gaining in popularity.
Once you have decided on face frame or frameless cabinets, you have to decide on the style of cabinets. There are many styles, including country styles, contemporary styles and classic styles. Select a style that meets the aesthetic that appeals to you.
The last factor to consider as you look to buy the right cabinets for your kitchen is the additional features that can be incorporated into the cabinets. This can include lighting, quiet closing drawers, spring-loaded shelves, or cabinetry that has a lazy Susan installed inside for your spices or food storage lids. Always consider what additional features can help you maximize the space in your kitchen or benefit you.
