When you’re looking to redo your kitchen cabinets, you will have several decisions to make. How do you want your kitchen cabinets to look? That outcome will be determined by these three factors that will influence the design of your kitchen and its associated hardware.

Your Budget

The most significant factor affecting what you can do with your kitchen cabinets is your budget. Depending on how much you’re willing to or can afford to spend, you’ll be constrained in your choices. Even so, don’t let the thought of that restriction discourage you. In fact, it can force you to become even more creative and inventive than you thought possible. Purchasing the right kitchen cabinets and their associated hardware takes up the largest chunk of a remodel budget. That said, because your kitchen cabinets are going to be one of the essential parts of your remodeled kitchen, this is one area where you shouldn’t be afraid to spend more.

How Everything Looks

Once you have your budget settled, you’ll have to consider how everything will look once it is finished. How will your kitchen cabinets be made? What doors would you like to have? And what type of finish are you thinking about putting on them? Answering these three questions are essential when you want to refresh your kitchen cabinets.

  • Assembly: You can either have framed cabinets or frameless. Sometimes, you might be able to take another option entirely; in this case, that option is to have a blend of the two. Framed kitchen cabinets have a frame that you can connect the doors to while their frameless counterparts do not have this feature.
  • Doors: Whether you would like full overlay, partial overlay, or inset doors, these are your choices for the type of door you want on your new-look kitchen cabinets.
  • Finish: Two main types of finish use paint or stain on your kitchen cabinets. Don’t overlook the merits of using a glaze, or indeed, blending differently-colored cabinets and appliances.


Kitchen cabinets serve a clear purpose, but you can also get even more out of them. Your kitchen doesn’t need to feel cramped because the best cabinets will not only help you feel like your kitchen is bigger than it appears, but all of your necessary plates, cups, cooking tools, and baking staples can be put away. Also, instead of allowing the trash can and the recycling bin to take up space on your floor, hide them away inside your cabinets with some clever pull-out hardware.
