With so many different kitchen cabinet options out there, you will want to consider some important factors before making a selection. Once you have gone over these factors, you may want to work with a professional or use a free kitchen visualizer tool to finalize your plans.

Custom Cabinet Space

When selecting cabinets that work well in your home, it is important to consider how much space you can dedicate to your cabinets. This part is especially important to consider if you are on a tighter budget. If you have a lot of room for cabinet space but a lower budget, you will want to consider a less expensive, simpler design for your cabinets.

It’s also important to choose cabinets that provide you with enough space to fulfill your storage needs. If you have enough room in your kitchen for cabinets with an extra inch or two of depth, it makes all the difference when it comes to storing your larger pots and pans. You may want to work with a professional designer for this step to learn more about your different cabinet options.

The following options are great for helping you organize and store unique kitchen items such as wine bottles, seasonings, large pots and pans, dish towels, and cleaning materials:

  • Pull-out cutting boards
  • Roll-out trash and recycling spaces
  • Roll-out trays
  • Lazy Susans
  • Mini pantries
  • Baskets and bins
  • Wine racks
  • Plate racks
  • And much more!

Custom Cabinet Style

In order to choose the right cabinet style for your space, you will first want to consider the look you are going for. Would you like your kitchen to have a more traditional feel or are you into sleek, modern designs?

Modern Style – If you have decided to go with a modern kitchen, you will want to choose cabinets that have simple edging and design. You will be happy to know that this style of cabinetry is often easier to maintain because dust is less likely to get caught in smaller crevices.

Traditional Style – If you would like to go with a more traditional kitchen, you will want to choose cabinets that have deeper, more detailed edging. This look will give your cabinets more depth and character!

Light Colors – Lighter colors are known for making spaces appear more open. If you would like to brighten up your kitchen space or if you are working with a smaller floor plan, you will want to consider choosing white cabinets.

Darker Tones – If you have plenty of space in your kitchen and you would like a deep, rich, luxurious feel, you will want to consider choosing a dark-toned wood. When choosing a darker toned cabinet material, you should keep in mind that darker colors tend to become more of a focal point in a room.

Custom Cabinet Maintenance

When it comes to maintaining your cabinets, some people prefer a material that means less upkeep. If you are one of these people, you should consider choosing a door style with minimal detail. Raised panel cabinet styles mean slightly more upkeep because they have edges and nooks where dust can cling to. If you are looking for a simple, less detailed cabinet design, you will want to check out shaker style and slab door front options.

Low Maintenance Cabinetry Tips:

  • You will want to opt for flush cabinet ends that match together seamlessly to avoid edgework that catches dust.
  • For modern kitchens, choose simple, flat surfaces with little or no raised edges or detail work to avoid dirt and dust build-up.
  • For traditional kitchens with deep edges and raised paneling, choose a material with a glaze. This helps fill corners where dust can hide and darkens the surface so you can’t see dirt).
