Today’s kitchen is the heart and hub of the home. It is often where families not only cook and dine, but also where they play games, pay bills, chat on the phone, and entertain guests. As a meeting place, the kitchen must be a livable community space for staging a variety of activities and events.
You’ll feel inspired to use your imagination to plan, order, and stock your kitchen cabinets to bring your dream kitchen to life. Top-notch kitchen cabinet makers can help you consider the many options in cabinet design and storage to ensure you pick the best cabinets for the decor, colour scheme, style, and size of your house and kitchen.
Combine attractive kitchen cabinets with lots of storage space
The organization, design, and finish or paint of the kitchen cabinets must appeal to the eye. And the storage capacity of the cupboards, drawers, and cabinet closets must appeal to a sense of organization.
By “sense of organization” we refer to the need for ample kitchen-cabinet storage for a wide range of objects–dishes, dishtowels, pots and pans, trash cans, recycle containers, appliances, and board games. Some homeowners install cabinets in walk-in pantries. In older homes without walk-in pantries, cabinets work as pantries of sorts for dry and canned goods.
Consider space for a phone centre or a cabinet-filled island for cooking and eating
Nowadays cabinets are often designed to accommodate a desk with a phone centre, a television, and appliances. Kitchen cabinet space often accommodates microwaves, refrigerators, waffle irons, and bread machines. Or cabinets can support an island with a counter where cooking and eating take place.
Other companies may know how to build cabinets, but we know how to build the “community kitchen.” So, try to consider all the things you do in your kitchen-ranging from elegant dining to playing board games-before you settle on your dream kitchen cabinets.
Consider the many types of kitchen cabinets
The variety is of cabinets is broad and you can literally transform your kitchen. For example, kitchen cabinets can stretch from floor to ceiling. You can request under-cabinet lights or hooks or racks that hold dishes. You can include corner cupboards, closets, and cabinets with glass or solid doors.
Choose between a variety of materials, such as cabinets in oak, pine, and other wood species
We can custom design solid wood cabinets in a warm, rich finish or paint. They can be so unique that you won’t see them anywhere else. And wood is durable, strong, and long-lasting, should the cabinets ever need to be repaired or refinished.
Solid wood cupboards are far superior to ones made of particle board. Particle board wears down quickly during regular use. And if water damages the surface, it swells irreversibly. It’s unlike solid oak, pine, cedar and other wood species, which can be refinished rather than replaced. Wood veneer or laminate are other options.
A stellar cabinet maker and installer knows you want lots of options, perhaps ranging from a modern Scandinavian look to a flamboyant Victorian style with antique hinges and door handles. You also want a smooth renovation. Use a designer to fully plan the design and construction to ensure your kitchen cabinets are assembled and ready to install.
