Focus On The Details: Choosing a Style For Your Kitchen Cabinets

New kitchen cabinets are a great way to give your kitchen a refreshing new look. Cleaner colors and shades and shiny new hardware will please the eye and keep your kitchen looking more modern, even if you do not update anything else. There are so many options when it comes to kitchen cabinets, though, so here is a guide to help you sort through them.

Layout And Measurements

Before you can do anything in your kitchen, you have to take into account the layout of the room, along with the precise measurements. You do not want to order some components that end up not fitting because they do not match the layout or they are the wrong size. Cabinets can be custom fitted and cut to fit your kitchen, but you must have the details right.

Stock or Custom?

There are three types of cabinets you can order. Stock cabinets cannot be customized, and come as they are. They are generally more affordable. Semi-custom cabinets have a few extra options more than stock cabinets to provide a bit more flexibility. Custom cabinets can be adjusted and made to your exact specifications. They are more expensive because they are the most useful.


You can also choose whether to have frames or go with frameless cabinets. If you go with frameless, you will need to make sure that you use a stronger material. The doors and drawers are connected right to the box, so the structure tends to be weaker.


You can go with flat doors, or the traditional shaker style doors, raised panel or even glass doors. The doors might be the most prominent component of your kitchen cabinets, so you want to choose the perfect style for you. Flat doors will provide a minimalist feel, and glass doors will make the space seem bigger. You can also purchase custom molding and finishes to complete the look.


There are several accessories that can be added in as well. Roll out shelves, sprice drawers, tray dividers, built in waste baskets, lazy susans to name a few.

You can have charging stations built-in, for example. You can also have platforms for large countertop appliances that are behind closed doors. The sky is the limit.

Getting new cabinets is a great way to spruce up your kitchen. Take all of these options into consideration when designing your new space.
