When designing or remodeling a kitchen, choosing the cabinetry is one of the most important decisions. The cabinets are the base that will determine the style, feel and layout of your kitchen. While remodeling, you may just use the previous layout for a more affordable approach, but when you are designing a brand new kitchen, the possibilities are endless. Choices from color, wood type, materials, details, cabinet accessories and finish of the cabinets are all important decisions as well as size and shape. Here are four important aspects to consider when choosing kitchen cabinets for your home.
1.) Quality: Regardless of how stylish a cabinet is, the quality of the product will shine through and be the ultimate feature. If you have a choice between the number of cabinets or the quality of your cabinets, the better choice is to choose quality over quantity. Here at Best Way Cabinets, almost all of our kitchen cabinets are made of solid wood like oak, maple and birch. Along with the quality of the cabinet, cabinet accessories are a great feature as well. Choose high quality runners for drawers and premium hinges for cabinet doors. We even offer soft-close doors which are a great functional addition to the cabinets, all at an affordable price!
2.) Symmetry: Make your kitchen visually pleasing with a simple and symmetrical design. Use matching drawer widths, as well as cabinet widths. Be sure to line up your wall cabinets with the base cabinets so the design isn't staggered. Take advantage of our free kitchen design planner to help you get started on the design and layout of your new kitchen!
3.) Light & Bright: Don't overtake your kitchen with dark colors and no windows. Many kitchens take in a light and bright design with lots of window space and an open feel. Many people keep their kitchens looking bright by purchasing white kitchen cabinets like our Ice White Shaker cabinets, Signature Pearl cabinets or Oasis cabinets. Using darker cabinets can still create a light atmosphere by incorporating bright colors and natural light into the design.
4.) Multitasking: Finally, be sure to keep in mind the functionality of your kitchen as a whole. Your kitchen design should be versatile and open, ready to host multiple family activities as well as multiple family members. If you have the space, think about adding a center island with cabinets, have lots of counter space for not only small appliances but to also prep food for meals. Arrange your cabinets to provide wide traffic paths that connect to other rooms of your home.
