Since your kitchen is one of the bigger investments in your home picking the right cabinets can create an appealing or appalling environment. Remodelers should consider the impact of cabinets on both the kitchen and overall design of the home to choose the proper finish, door mount, door style and hardware.
Stain, finish, or simply leave solid wood cabinets in their natural state to create an appealing environment. You can go the decorative finish route with crackle, distressing or glazing if you want to spruce up your cabinets with some flare. Even though it seems to go against common sense lighter cabinets hide dirt more effectively than darker-shaded cabinets. Homeowners with growing families might opt for lighter cabinets to mask the inevitable smudges and stains which will show up around their kitchen space.
You can choose the most common cabinet door mounting option known as the overlay where the door lays over the cabinet case. The full mounting overlay option allows doors to fit closely together. Regular overlay design allows the face frame to show around the doors. If you want to hide the cabinet case go with the full mounting overlay design. Homeowners who want to use a less common design can choose inset doors if you want the cabinet doors to be installed flush inside the frame.
Ultra-modern, country or traditional cabinet door styles can adorn your kitchen. Assess your kitchen décor. Which style vibes with your presentation? If you have a large budget to work with consider more expensive style options like beading and raised panels to wow your visitors. Keep in mind that these door styles require a great deal more time and energy to clean. Work within your budget to find the right style for your needs. Be practical to select a cost-effective, low-maintenance cabinet door. For those who want to break the bank or who hire housekeepers to maintain their kitchen space feel free to go with the higher end door models.
Hardware can make or break your kitchen cabinets. Since hardware has a major impact on the appearance of your cabinets put deep thought into your selection. Whether you want to go with a traditional, country or contemporary design your hardware choice will either spruce up your kitchen or create a more subdued look for your home. Cabinet doors and finishes are much harder to change than drawer pulls and knobs. Consider this before you make your hardware selection. Choosing the right hardware can save you money in the long run.
