When going through the kitchen remodeling process, it’s important to know the different types of options you have for cabinetry. Depending on how the room is shaped and where you want appliances to go can determine which type of cabinet may fit your kitchen best.

Common Types of Cabinets

Stock

Stock cabinets come cheaper than other cabinets, but with limited options. These usually come in common sizes and finishes, but can still give your kitchen a great new look if you want something simple. These cabinets are ready for when you need them.

Semi-Custom

Semi-custom cabinets offer more of a variety of finishes and features than stock cabinets. This way, you can give your kitchen a more personalized look and feel, without paying the price of completely custom cabinetry. You can choose different organization inserts and door racks, as well as adding crown molding. This type of cabinet usually takes 4 to 8 weeks to be done and delivered.

Custom

Custom cabinetry can be great if you want to choose the wood, finish, features, and modifications. The craftsmen can meet any need of your kitchen and give you a completely new design from scratch. This is great if you renovating your entire kitchen and need to start from the ground up.

5 Cabinet Styles For Your Kitchen

After choosing which type of cabinets would be best for your kitchen remodel, you need to choose the styles that fit your needs.

Base Cabinets

Base cabinets, also known as lower cabinets, can provide a good base for heavy countertops or as a base for an island. These cabinets are great for storage of small kitchen appliances, as well as pots and pans. For semi-custom and custom designs, this is a great area to add organization elements or a lazy susan spot.

Wall Cabinets

Wall cabinets, or mounted cabinets, are great for adding functionality and style to your kitchen. These are great spaces to hold dishes and glasses, as well as a small pantry area for snacks and cereal. These are great areas to add in clear cabinet doors to show off your good china, or add personalized storage units for spices and seasonings.

Tall Cabinets

Tall cabinets also called pantry cabinets or utility cabinets, are great spaces for food storage. These types of cabinets can be made up to 96 inches in height. Tall cabinets can also go around your stacked ovens or microwave if they’re built into the wall. These cabinets are great to have as a pullout door full of shelves for easy organization.

Cabinet Doors

Cabinet doors are used as the visually appealing part of the cabinet. Adding on hardware and finishes that match your kitchen can add a lot of style and personalization in an easy way. You can also add racks to the doors for organizing kitchenware.

Cabinet Drawers

Cabinet drawers can come with a variety of fronts that have different designs. They can also come with a soft-close feature which can make them shut on their own once you push them. This makes them impossible to slam shut. As well as the doors, you can add personalized hardware to drawers.   Once you learn about the different types of kitchen cabinets there is to offer, you’ll have an easier time picking ones that are perfect for your remodeling project.

A kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home. Some people spend a lot of time in the kitchen. They most likely do so to fulfill their passion for baking and cooking some great food.

When designing your new kitchen in 2018, you can choose designs, colors and, gadgets that suit you best. Below are some points to consider for this fall.

Gadgets for Your Kitchen

Leveraging technology is the wisest move to get your work done, no matter what your expertise may be in the kitchen. With cooking, you can make your processes more efficient and enjoyable with technology integrated with blenders, refrigeration, lighting, and kitchen faucets among others. Tech-oriented kitchens are quickly becoming increasingly popular as homeowners try new and exciting technologies.

Color Selection to Match Your Taste

While you could go with a totally white surrounding, darker colors can be liberating when you choose the right shades. This is much like low illumination you might find comforting. 2018 has brought a range of colors for you to choose for your cabinets and countertops. For example, grey cabinets are extremely versatile and can complement any look. On the other hand, dark kitchen cabinets exude elegance as well as a rich and luxurious atmosphere. However, that is not all as another amazing color palette is gradually making its way into our kitchens. These are dark jewel tones and include navy, black, emerald green and even plum. Yes, you read that right!

Designs and Materials

There are a few things you can do to free up some room and create some breathing space. You can get rid of anything that looks bulky as part of your kitchen remodeling ideas for more free space. Also, include more effective designs for things like kitchen sinks that should be sufficiently deep and large to accommodate a variety of items for washing. You can free up more room with:
  • Top shelves
  • Removing bulky cabinets
  • Countertop space utility (quartz)
  • Materials and textures

Hardwood Floors or Ceramic Tile

There is no denying that hardwood flooring is still the most popular option for kitchen flooring. That being said, ceramic flooring is now emerging as the second most popular option and garnering more attention. With technological advances, ceramic flooring is now available in a diverse variety of styles, designs, and sizes. Now you can buy ceramic tiles for your kitchen that resemble hardwood flooring. Isn’t that great!

Special Space for Pets in Your Kitchen

Most of us have and love pets. Our kitties and pups are with us on our couch or bed. Although kitchens are generally not the ideal places for pets or children, if you are an animal lover, you will feel differently about restricting your pet or keeping your kitchen off limits. The solution is to have space where you train your pet to sit, stand, eat or even sleep. You can have a special space created for your pet where you can place its belongings so that it gets the idea. Somewhere out of the way, toward a corner would be best to keep your pet safe. If you are interested in remodeling your kitchen with the latest design trends, contact us today!
