Kitchen cabinets are an integral part of the functionality and appearance of the kitchen. When designed right, they provide solutions to all of your storage needs by maximizing space in a small kitchen. As the cabinets form the basis of the overall kitchen style, it’s important to choose the right cabinet style to suit your needs. We carry a large selection of styles, finishes and materials that you can select from to customize the perfect kitchen cabinets for your home.
Choose from custom, semi-custom or stock cabinets. We only work with the top kitchen cabinet manufacturers to supply our superior products. Since stock cabinets cannot be customized and only come in set sizes, kitchen space and dimensions have to be examined before considering this option.
Specifically built to suit your needs, custom kitchen cabinets are obviously most costly. Custom designs will make maximum use of your space and accommodate any unusual architectural features or atypical appliances.
These allow for many of the advantages of custom cabinetry at a much lower cost, making them the ideal choice for many customers. These cabinets run at only 25% more than stock cabinets but allow for some flexibility in sizing and configuration.
Designing your kitchen will involve choosing from three different cabinet locations. Base cabinets are installed from the floor to under the countertop and are included in almost every kitchen. Wall mounted cabinets are optional and found in varying heights above the counter, while tall kitchen cabinets are typically used as pantries or utility cabinets and set from floor to ceiling.
When it comes to kitchen cabinets, the door style is what will determine the aesthetic of your kitchen. Choose from any popular door style, or create a custom style to suit your taste. You can customize any popular style by using an unusual material or adding your own unique accents. Showcase your china with clear glass doors for the modern kitchen, choose traditional wood cabinets for the warm homey look or go for easy to clean laminate doors to lower your kitchen cost.
Shaker cabinet doors are one of the most popular door styles. They are created using 5 pieces of wood to form a frame with a recessed panel in the center. Their simple style lends itself to just about any decor, from contemporary to traditional, and can be created using a variety of materials and finishes.
Louvered cabinet doors are created using horizontal slats of wood down the whole door. This unique architectural style contributes to a contemporary, modern, or transitional feel. Louvered cabinet doors are also often used to enclose spaces that need ventilation, such as a clothes drying cabinet.
Simple but stylish, the flat-panel cabinet door creates a sleek, neat look. Its hard lines and minimalist form make it a great fit for contemporary and modern interiors.
Inset cabinet doors differ from other styles in that they sit within the door frame, rather than resting on the outside of it. This style is created using exact measurements for a perfect fit and usually requires an exterior hinge.
Distressed cabinet doors are used to make your cabinets appear antique. You can choose any door style and then have the corners rubbed off or otherwise create a worn, antique look.
Are you looking to increase the home value with a better quality kitchen? If you hope to sell, stick to classic styles and designs. If your home is where you plan to stay go for custom cabinets and personal styles.
Don’t forget what cabinets are built for. Accessories and amenities are wonderful, but kitchen cabinetry needs to have enough room to store dishes and food.
Avoid choosing modern style cabinets in a Victorian style home. The different rooms and furnishing in the home should have similar tones and characteristics.
