Online design tools

The most seasoned remodelers might not be aware of the advantages that developments in technology offer for kitchen design. There are numerous free kitchen design programs available online.

Look to purchase cabinets online

Whether you live in a metropolitan center or a small town, you serve to benefit from the selection of cabinets online. Think of all the time you’ll save by not having to drive, stand in line, or wait for assistance on the showroom floor. It’s advisable to look into ready to assemble cabinets because, in addition to offering high quality, they are shipped in flat packs that are less expensive and more convenient than preassembled cabinets.

 

Think classic versus trendy

Kitchen trends may come and go – so why not stick to a design that stands the test of time? The critics agree that gray or white Shaker cabinets not only match all different styles of flooring, countertops, and appliances, but also offer a classic elegance that make for a sound investment.

 

Sturdy construction

While shopping around and looking at details about the cabinets you’re interested in, be sure to check out the materials used, particularly for the cabinet box. Plywood is significantly sturdier than particle board and is the sign of a higher-quality product.

 

Cabinets for corners

Looking into corner cabinets for kitchens can open up possibilities for your remodel that you hadn’t even imagined. For example, blind corner cabinet systems as well as lazy susan cabinet options can open up or even create a cabinet corner in your kitchen, providing new, innovative storage solutions that may completely transform how you envision your remodel.

 

Comparing RTA cabinets with custom cabinets and preassembled cabinets

RTA cabinets are far and above the most convenient, reliable route to take with a kitchen remodel. High-quality RTA cabinets such as those at Nelson Cabinetry offer advantages that many other cabinets do not, such as solid wood dovetail drawers, wood frame, and cam lock assembly. Custom cabinets can offer these advantages but the price is significantly higher than with their RTA counterparts.

 

Consider the kitchen’s functionality

Is there enough storage room for all the pots and pans, spices, silverware, plates, and dry storage? Would it make sense to add a pantry cabinet with doors, for example, to help organize everything? Is there any way for your kitchen cabinet remodel to better maximize the flow from the three main stations of the kitchen (refrigerator, sink, stove), such as with kitchen refrigerator cabinets or over the stove cabinets? Be sure to check out all the different kitchen cabinet products that are available in order to make the most out of your kitchen storage.

Vertical space

Too often, the focus of a kitchen cabinet remodel centers on the main appliances. Be sure to account for the upper areas, too. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets for kitchen creates an impressive, modern visual effect in addition to providing even more functional areas.
