Are you planning a kitchen remodel? Picking new cabinetry can feel overwhelming with so many choices, but here are the main details to consider when picking your kitchen cabinets.
Your cabinet doors are the focal point of your kitchen. Do you want to showcase your favorite china with glass inlays in your doors, or go for a more minimalist look with open shelves? Maybe you like the traditional Shaker style door but want to mix it up with exotic wood. Selecting your door style first will provide insight for other essential details.
Think about how your cabinets and kitchen will be used. If you are planning to stack snacks and canned goods in your cabinets, then an open shelved theme is going to look cluttered. If you will have taller appliances on your counters, you may want to consider shorter cabinets up top.
Picking your cabinets is easier if you know what style kitchen you will have. Your cabinets should match your kitchen style. For example, if you want a rustic style kitchen, ornamental cabinet doors or corner cabinets won’t really fit the theme. Accenting with glass or mirrored cabinets can give your kitchen a more contemporary feel.
The hardware you choose should complement your cabinet style. Simple, straight line pulls, or no pulls at all, will complement flat-panel cabinets. Traditional kitchens with raised-panel cabinets will be well accented with decorative pulls and old-fashioned fixtures.
Colors and Finishes
Don’t feel like you are limited to the choices of natural wood, black, and white for your cabinets. You can add a pop of color to make an impact. Sage and shades of blue are popular in rustic kitchens. Tinted wood stains can enhance your new kitchen cabinets and offer an alternative that will help to bring out the wood’s character.
