So, you wanted to upgrade your kitchen by replacing its old cabinets but you’re lost and don’t know where to start?
Don’t stress yourself. Here are our 5 tips on how to choose the right kitchen cabinet for your home.
Pick the cabinet door profile first
One of the important considerations in choosing the right cabinet is to first pick the cabinet door profile. Why? It’s because cabinet doors are visible elements in the kitchen. Your eyes will easily see and notice them upon entering the room. So, it’s best to decide whether you want a recessed centre, raised arch, recessed square, or a slab for your cabinet door profile before other things.
List down your favourite cabinet door styles
There’s a wide range of finishes and styles of kitchen cabinet doors you can choose from. It can be traditional, modern, or contemporary. You can go for flat cabinet doors that are modern and stylish; or you can choose a traditional cabinet door style that has classic and flashy handles.
Just don’t forget to choose the cabinet door style that matches the overall style of your kitchen.
Consider the style of your kitchen
In choosing the right kitchen cabinet, you have to consider the style of your kitchen. This includes the paint finish, the style, and the materials used in the kitchen as a whole.
The cabinet’s paint can either be the same as the kitchen walls, or you can choose a different colour to accentuate the wall’s paint. You must also ensure that the style of the cabinets is inline with the kitchen’s style.
Note the type and colour of the wood you want
Most probably, you have a dream colour and type of material to use in your kitchen cabinet, but if not, asking an expert kitchen designer will be a great help.
Some materials that are used in kitchen cabinets are melamine, stainless steel, metal or wood; If you know what colour and type of material you want, list them and then think on how you will be using these in your kitchen cabinets.
Consider both aesthetics and functionality
Aesthetics is not the only thing you should be thinking of when choosing a kitchen cabinet. You should also remember that the cabinet’s functionality is also of equal importance. See to it that the size is enough for it to fit your needs, or if its doors can open wide for big things you will put inside.
So, if you want to choose the right kitchen cabinet, you must think about how you want to organise the kitchen, how much work and time you’ll be spending on it, and how you’ll need your kitchen to function in the long run.
