Choosing Kitchen Cabinets

 

Choosing Kitchen Cabinets

Walk into a kitchen and what’s the first thing you notice? Probably the cabinets. Whether they’re shiny and new or old and dilapidated, the cabinets are the first thing that will catch your eye. After all, they make up the bulk of the kitchen and can certainly make or break the décor, depending on their style and condition.

If you’ve begun shopping for new kitchen cabinets, there’s a lot to think about. You’ll need to find cabinets that are right for the scale/size of your kitchen as well as for the layout. And, of course, you’ll want to like the way they look.

Let’s review the factors you must consider as you peruse the cabinets available from Mr. Cabinet Care.

Functionality

Above all, your cabinets must work for you. For example, you may need a large amount of storage and perhaps you’re hoping to increase the storage capacity you had in your old kitchen. As a result, you might choose frameless cabinets (also sometimes called European-style cabinets), which provide you with much more storage than a traditional rail-style cabinet that’s standard in kitchens in the United States.

As you get older, you may find that you prefer lots of drawers. These allow you to retrieve items without bending down or standing on your tiptoes. Drawers also offer flexible storage and can be configured in just about any way in your base cabinets. So, drawers might be a priority.

Or you may want vertical dividers in your tall, deep kitchen cabinets or perhaps a spice rack pull-out that makes those tiny bottles easier to find. Or how about a lazy susan in the corner?

Truly, functionality is totally up to you and what works best for your lifestyle. Mr. Cabinet Care can certainly help you decide on the particulars.

Style

Of course, style is a big part of the equation when it comes to purchasing kitchen cabinets. As a matter of fact, most homeowners decide to remodel their kitchen because they aren’t happy with its current style. That’s because the style may be outdated or perhaps your tastes may have changed in the years since you purchased your home or last updated your kitchen.

Like functionality, style is a very personal thing, but most homeowners try to choose a style that compliments the rest of their house. For example, if your living areas are bright and cheery, you won’t likely be choosing dark cherry cabinets and black granite countertops for your kitchen. Or if your home is very industrial in style, you probably won’t opt for a traditional country kitchen with oak cabinets and a farmhouse sink.

A lot of things fall under the heading of “style”. It’s not only the color of the wood you choose but also the shape of the cabinets, the color, the trim around them, and much more. Hardware is a big consideration as well. It’s often described as the “jewelry” of a kitchen – an accessory that can have a huge impact on your design. These days, there are a ton of hardware options available so be creative in your choices and find something that touts your style.

Mr. Cabinet Care offers a wealth of different cabinet styles in all sorts of colors and materials so you’re sure to find one (or more) that appeals to you and that will complement the rest of your home.
