There are many reasons to remodel a kitchen — perhaps the one in the house you’ve just purchased is showing its age or because you plan to sell your home and are looking to raise its value. But the most common reason that people choose to remodel is because they are looking to update and upgrade their well-loved kitchen to fit their current lifestyle.
When it comes to selecting the right cabinets for your kitchen remodel, there are a lot of options available for you to explore. Our designers will help guide you through this process to help ensure that you get the most out of your cabinetry. Keep reading to learn more about what to consider when choosing the cabinetry for your redesign.
Begin Budgeting with the Cabinetry
During a kitchen upgrade, homeowners have choices on how to allocate their budget. They might choose to upgrade their countertops from laminate to quartz, but by doing so might budget less in flooring. Since your cabinetry makes up the most of your kitchen, we recommend starting there when deciding how to spend your kitchen remodeling budget.
There are many different styles and price points when it comes to selecting which cabinets fit your vision and your needs, but by starting your design process by choosing your cabinetry, you will find that it helps to keep your budget on track as your decisions about countertops and appliances can be made much more easily once you know what you will be allocating for cabinetry.
Kitchen cabinets are a primary means of decluttering, which is one of the main things people are looking for when remodeling their kitchens. As a result, the cabinetry industry and its manufacturers are constantly designing strategic and innovative ways to organize and store everything you need and want to have in your kitchen without overcrowding your counter space.
While it is essential to have to trash and recycling within reach in your kitchen while you’re cooking, you don’t want to look at or smell the trash, so cabinets designed specifically for trash and recycling have become a standard choice for those remodeling their kitchen. For your collection of pots and pans, there are a couple of excellent options to help keep them organized, easily accessible, and out of sight: deep drawers to organize and stack your cookware, cabinets with roll-out trays for easy access, and dividers to house and store baking trays. As more small appliance become available (we love our instant pot and soda streams!), the need for different cabinetry spaces to house them in has grown. We recommend storing away the small appliances that are used occasionally and adding a cabinet that sits on the countertop with a lift-up door to hold and hide the few appliances that you use most often.
White and Grey Continue to Trend
If you’ve been looking at kitchen designs lately, you’ve probably noticed that white cabinetry is still in. It’s no surprise since white cabinets reflect light and help to make smaller spaces appear clean and more open, while also helping to make other design elements in your kitchen pop. Believe it or not, there are also many options to choose from when it comes to white cabinets: whites, off-whites, and white cabinetry with glazing options — each delivering a different look and feel to your kitchen.
Grey cabinets are another popular choice when updating your kitchen, as they can be made to blend cabinets into the background or make them an eye-catching focal point depending on how you use them. They can also be an excellent neutral colored cabinet to pair with white cabinets or other colors in your kitchen. Grey cabinets are so versatile, you can’t go wrong!
