Kitchen cabinets are one of the most important aspects of your kitchen remodeling project. Kitchen cabinets greatly affect the overall functionality and style of your kitchen. The expert designers at Kitchen Cabinets & Beyond, conveniently located near Fullerton, can help you through each important decision regarding your entire kitchen project. Following are a few things they can help you consider in your kitchen cabinet planning stages.
Kitchen Cabinet Style
The cabinet style you choose is important. They will be the biggest part of your investment, but, with the knowledgeable team from Kitchen Cabinets & Beyond, it does not have to be a stressful decision process. There are a plethora of styles to choose from: shaker, flat or inset. Each of them offers a different design flair and function to your kitchen.
Then there is the question of materials. Although wood is still the most popular choice in kitchen cabinets, there are many other alternatives to choose from including, laminate, stainless steel, thermo foil, melamine, lacquer, and acrylic. They each offer something unique to your space. Wood brings with it a natural and more traditional look. Manmade materials, however, are available in a wide range of colors and will give a more modern look. With the right creative guidance, almost any material can be incorporated into any kitchen. Today, kitchen designers even use more than one style, material or color for cabinets within one kitchen. Cost, durability, availability and personal preference all play into which material is best for your kitchen.
Adding a countertop hutch will present a more traditional, furniture style to your kitchen storage. Using glass fronts can make this choice the perfect place to display pretty dishes.
It is not unusual today to use eco-friendly materials to help build a healthier home for your family. At Kitchen Cabinets & Beyond, we can introduce you to all your material options and help you consider what each can lend to your kitchen cabinets.
Once your cabinets are chosen, it will be time to choose hardware. Even with the simplest of shaker style cabinets, your choices of hardware, like drawer pulls and knobs, make a huge difference in the whole look of your kitchen. For example, you may choose a more modern style, flat-panel cabinet. Choosing clean, simple and contemporary pulls will give a sleeker and more modern feel giving a streamlined look. Or, you can add different classic, old-world fixtures, and hardware to fit the more traditional raised-panel cabinetry.
Colorful kitchen cabinetry has made a big comeback. There are beautiful palettes available to give your kitchen a personal flair. You can even try two different colors on your cabinets or a single bright color with neutral finishes. Your imagination is the limit!
Stains are also a beautiful way to add color to your cabinets without changing the natural look of wood cabinets. Stains are available in a wide range of colors from more subtle browns to blues and greens. And, if you are interested in a unique color but worried about added maintenance, a distressed finish can be a perfect choice. They offer a warm feel and actually look better with wear and tear. Our design team can help you determine the best color options to suit your personal taste and style.
