When you are remodelling your kitchen, one of the major decisions you will have to make is what type of cabinets you want to install. This is a big decision because your kitchen cabinets will highlight the look of your entire kitchen, plus you will be using them daily so having ones you love to look at would be ideal. Before you buy your perfect cabinets for your kitchen renovation, you should follow these five tips to ensure you pick the right ones:
Location, Location, Location
The first step you need to take when buying your kitchen cabinets is deciding where you are going to put them and how many you will need. Make sure you measure the spaces where you want to place your cabinets so that the kitchen professionals will have a better sense of what kind of cabinets will fit into your kitchen.
Make Sure You have a Good Budget
When remodelling your kitchen, you should set aside around 50% of your budget towards your kitchen cabinets. This might seem like a lot of money for cabinets, but they can get pricey especially when you need a lot of them. The cabinets will play a huge role in transforming the look of your kitchen, so make sure you set aside enough money to pick out the ones that look amazing and fit within your budget.
What Type of Cabinets Do You Want
There are three main types of cabinets; custom, semi-custom, and stock. Stock cabinets are the least expensive option and are constructed in standard shapes and sizes. Semi-custom cabinets are factory built, but you can choose from a wide range of storage, design, and style options. Custom built cabinets are the highest end of cabinets and most expensive, but you can design and create them to fit your vision.
Choose the Quality You Want
If you are renovating your kitchen before a move, you may just want to use a basic style of cabinet to spruce up the look before you sell. However, if you are building your dream kitchen, you may want to opt for a higher quality cabinet that will survive for an extremely long time. Pick cabinets with sturdy frames that can take the pressure of being opened and closed for extended periods of time and will hold up for many years.
Find Your Style
Go to different stores that sell cabinets or leaf through interior design magazines to try and find the style that will work best for you and your kitchen. There are a number of styles you can choose from if you take the semi-custom route, so go through as many styles as you can before picking your perfect cabinets!
