Finding the Right Type of Cabinet
Are you looking for the perfect kitchen cabinets?
After living in your home for many years, you will always want a kitchen cabinet upgrade to freshen up the look of your kitchen. For many people, having a full kitchen makeover is on the to-do list.
Choosing new kitchen cabinets can be a tough decision to make. There is a specific cabinet preference for every lifestyle, the type of space, amount of space available, and working budget.
In any kitchen, the cabinetry is the highlight of the room. Choosing the correct style is the main factor in achieving a successful kitchen design. Finding the right one that fits all your requirements in cabinetry can be quite a challenge.
How to start?
First things first. What you want is to establish how you want your kitchen to look and the functions you want so that you can achieve your culinary and lifestyle goals. Evaluate why you want to change your cabinets – do you dislike the existing design because of style and/or functionality? Do you want larger cabinets because your current cabinets do not store as much as you want it to?
The more specific you are with what you want in cabinets, the more you can narrow down the options.
Consider the style of your home and kitchen
The existing architectural style of home will often determine the type of cabinetry to choose to remain in a design alignment. The cabinetry style you pick will influence the look and feel of your kitchen.
Hence, ask yourself if you want to retain the existing style or do you want to change to look of your kitchen. For example, period cabinets go well with antique houses while contemporary kitchens look good with European-style cabinets. No matter what you want, knowing the style that you prefer will narrow down your choices and it can help guide you to the right cabinet brands with the help of your kitchen designer.
Going green is another choice that you might want to make. Sometimes, the most beautiful cabinetry creates the least impact on the environment. Choose a company that is committed to sustainability.
Amount of storage space
Do you need more storage space or are you downgrading cabinet space? Are the things on your countertop better stored in a cabinet? By knowing how much stuff you have will help you determine the amount of space needed. The fewer items on your countertops, the more working space you have.
Appeal vs. Durability
Know what is more important to you – aesthetics or quality? Achieving your ideal kitchen design must be realistic. If you have a limited budget, choose in between such as quality materials and aesthetic doors and finishes. That way, you can partially fulfill what you prefer.
Know the cabinet types
There are four basic types of cabinets such as those that go under the counter or base, wall-mounted, tall, and specialty units such as hutches, bottle racks, and order cabinets.
There are also different cabinet grades, depending on construction quality. Ready-to-assemble flat pack cabinets are those that can be found in the big box stores. They can save you a lot of money but they are not durable. Installing cabinetry is not the same as building a shelf or bed. Even if you are used to DIYs, you will still need professional help.
Stock cabinets come from the manufacturer but they are less flexible because the sizes cannot be changed. However, they have higher quality than ready-to-assemble types.
Semi-custom cabinets can be stock cabinets with custom doors or made-to-order units from a manufacturer with many more options and finishes.
Custom cabinets are those that offer unlimited options because they are made-to-order and you can also dictate what materials you want to use.
Construction and Quality
The overall quality of a cabinet depends on its construction. During construction, you have to take into consideration the materials, construction and design, and hardware.
Cabinet construction can be framed or frameless. Framed cabinets are attached to the front door for added strength and dimension. Frameless construction, on the other hand, is a European method of cabinet manufacturing that is gaining popularity among American homeowners. Joinery and techniques that are used to assemble and support the cabinets must be of quality.
The quality of the materials, such as the board, the type of wood, metal or laminate must be chosen with care.
Drawer slides differ in quality and this can affect drawer space. Shelf mounting brackets can be made of plastic or metal.
There are many different cabinet styles. To avoid confusion, choose the construction and door type as this will help narrow down your choices. Make a choice if you prefer doors or shelving systems as this can create an impact on the overall design and functionality.
Choosing where to get your cabinets is very important if you want your cabinets to last long. Some cabinet brands cater only to a particular taste. However, there are some cabinet brands that cater to individual preferences.
Different brands may be the same when it comes to materials, construction style, and options. However, the difference lies in the variation that they produce – having custom pieces or a combination of stock and custom….and overall customer service.
Another distinguishing factor is the quality of the cabinets. Not all manufacturers are the same. There are those that can offer you premium cabinets by using high-quality materials and craftsmanship.
Market availability is another factor that differs from brand to brand. Some cabinet makers can be found in big-box home retailers while some are exclusive only through some dealers or designers.
