Cabinets are the first things seen when you enter a kitchen. If walking into your kitchen feels like a time-warp, perhaps you should be thinking about new cabinets. A professional contractor who specializes in kitchen renos can help with the overwhelming number of choices. However, there are some simple rules to stick to.
Work with Your Home’s Theme
Cabinets should not compete with the rest of your home – they should blend with it. For example, beautiful, flat-front, ultra-modern cabinets without any embellishment will probably look out of place in rustic-style kitchen renos. Likewise, if the theme is modern and sleek, honey-toned, maple cabinets with fancy trim probably aren’t the best choice.
Getting the Most Out Of Your Cabinets
If your dream kitchen is rarely used for preparing feasts, then you could sacrifice functionality for style. But, if it’s used often, you need fixtures that make life easier. While base cabinets are more spacious than upper ones, this space is typically wasted by poor kitchen design. Often there’s just one shelf, forcing you to stack teetering pans, pots, small appliances, mixing bowls, etc.
Look for base cabinets where space has been used wisely – for example, slim and tall drawers for cookie sheets, hidden wine compartments, pet food dispensers, household storage cleaner, and appliance caddies. Upper cabinets should have more than just one shelf.
