There’s more to choosing your kitchen cabinets than just choosing a style and color. Today’s custom and semi-custom cabinet manufacturers offer many options to truly make your kitchen your dream kitchen. It can be overwhelming for some families undergoing a kitchen remodel but when you work with a design-build company it doesn’t have to be. A good design-build company has a relationship with several cabinet manufactures so that they can find the right ones for their customers. Here are a few of the things you’ll want to consider for your kitchen.
Upper Cabinet Options
Before you decide that all your cabinets, upper and lower, will be the same, you might want to consider mixing up the styles a bit. Although most of your cabinet doors will likely be solid, there are other options. Open shelving can give you a place to display unique serving pieces or just add some decoration. Glass front doors have many visually interesting options. Some include:
- Clear glass
- Frosted glass
- Stained glass
- Leaded glass
- Single pane
- Multiple panes
- Decorative mullion designs
Before you choose a clear glass, remember you’re committing your family to keeping the contents of the cabinets looking neat. If that seems overwhelming, don’t feel like all your cabinets need to have glass. One suggestion is choosing cabinets along the most visible wall to draw the eye. Glass front cabinets, especially those with interior lighting, can make a narrow kitchen look wider so choosing the cabinets along the narrow side may be a great option. If you have a U-shaped kitchen without a window at the back of the U, adding lit cabinets with a multiple-pane glass front can give the illusion of a window.
Whether you choose to have the same cabinet color or style on the bottom, you still have some options. If you want to give your kitchen a country-French feel or a formal feel, consider furniture style bottom cabinets. Choosing an island that looks more like a piece of furniture is a great way to tie your living space and kitchen together.
You’ll also want to talk about what’s going to be inside your cabinets. Some homeowners prefer the traditional look of all cabinets on the bottom. If that’s your style, you can still reap the benefits of drawers by choosing a manufacturer who offers the option of pull-out shelving and drawers behind your cabinets.
