Cabinets are one of the most important parts of your kitchen. Sometimes a remodel doesn’t involve sweeping changes. If you are operating on a tight budget, then a more modest update could be in order. Whatever aesthetic you are trying to cultivate, having the right cabinets is hugely influential on the outcome of your kitchen renovation project. Believe it or not, upgrading the cabinets also represents the most expensive aspect of remodeling your kitchen.
Take Styles and Trends into Consideration
First of all, you’ll want to consider different styles and trends to see what fits your personality the best. Bringing your vision to life gets easier when you work with the professionals here at WalterWorks Hardware, but the project still has to adhere to the basic principles of form and function. Three of the most popular design styles are known as transitional, traditional, and contemporary. Cabinets equipped with pullouts, tilt-ins, tilt-outs, and rollouts are also worthwhile investments; don’t forget about the merits of universal design (also called accessible design) which should guide your thought process for redesigning kitchens and bathrooms – two rooms where you would most expect to see cabinets.
Decide Between These Types of Cabinets
Every decision point leads to more choices you’ll need to make. Three options now lay before you, so what will you do next? Choosing between stock cabinets, semi-custom cabinets, and full-custom cabinets might sound overwhelming. You’ll most often find stock cabinets in home improvement stores – after all, they’re relatively inexpensive and look virtually identical to one another. However, semi-custom cabinets are built to order so you can customize the look and feel of the individual cabinets. Fully custom-made cabinets are essential if your home’s kitchen has unusual dimensions or when you want the highest quality product available.
Then Choose the Construction Technique
Now that you know what kind of cabinets you want, the time has come to select the construction technique used to assemble them. For instance, face-frame construction involves the union of solid wood frames and cabinet boxes. Meanwhile, the frameless cabinet design is more contemporary and also affords you more space to work with; even though you can’t see the hinges, they are still there – just hidden inside the cabinet itself.
Focus on Features
No kitchen is complete without top-of-the-line features. You expect the best, and we aim to deliver! Solid wood face frames, door fronts, door frames, and drawers all need to be as sturdy as possible. Corner braces, plywood sides, and rear panels also help ensure that the cabinet is well-made and as will last as long as you expect them to after installation. Drawers, wood pullouts, and shelving can also take your cabinet design game to the next level!
