In the early stages of planning a kitchen or bath remodel, we always suggest start with selecting the cabinetry. Cabinets will likely be the biggest expense in your remodel, and the style, color, and arrangement of your cabinets ultimately influence the style of the space. After deciding on the perfect cabinet for your space, your remaining selections more easily fall into place.
In terms of color, white cabinets are among the most popular, but other sought-after cabinet colors include chocolate brown, medium gray, brown/gray, and navy blue. Often a combination of two or more of these colors will be combined in a kitchen. We recommend taking a few cabinet samples in various colors into your home where the lighting will impact the final appearance. We then will make recommendations on how to coordinate your other material selections to complement your cabinet color.
Plain slab doors are trending, offering a modern look that is sleek and clean. It is also a very popular option to choose cabinet doors with a simple design, like a single inset or overlay. Shaker cabinet doors continue to offer a contemporary look that jives well with a variety of other decor and design decisions.
The color and style of your cabinet hardware can impact the look and feel of your cabinetry to make a kitchen feel sophisticated, simple, decorated, or polished. Rod cabinet pulls have become popular in modern designs, as well as minimal and sometimes no hardware at all to accentuate plain slab cabinet doors.
Other options to consider include framed vs frameless cabinets, wood species, finishes, and accent pieces – such as glass shelves and crown molding. Most importantly, additional creative storage options can add that extra nook and space to hold your favorite kitchen supplies!
Choosing your cabinetry can be an exciting experience, but careful planning and decision making are necessary for the success of your remodel.
