Shoving your fine china in with your kid’s plasticware into a cabinet that doesn’t elegantly fit your dishes is never ideal. You know you need to make a change and remodel your kitchen cabinets, but where do you start?
Whether you’re trying to give your kitchen a facelift or add some more organization into your life, custom kitchen cabinets can be a great way to achieve your goals.
At Final Cut, we’re here to help you, from finding the right design to laying the last coat of paint on your cabinets after we complete installation. With us on your side, your only concern should be which dishes you want displayed at the front of your cabinet when we’re gone!
Let’s get into some tips for making the right custom cabinet choice and examples of different design styles to inspire you!
Kitchen Cabinets Are a Lifestyle Choice!
Are you someone that frequently hosts parties? Do you cook often? Do you have children or pets?
The many hats we wear can influence the type of cabinets we choose. For example, if you have young children, you may want kitchen cabinets with soft-close drawers to avoid pinched fingers.
If you’re an avid cook, you may want cabinets with plenty of storage space for your kitchen gadgets.
If you feel anxious or unsure about how to pick cabinets, thinking about your daily lifestyle can give you a head start on creating a custom cabinet design.
Cabinet Functionality is Essential
Knowing how you use your kitchen makes functionality critical when designing custom cabinets. Consider how you use your kitchen and what type of storage you need.
Do you need cabinets with pull-out drawers for your pots and pans? Do you need a pantry for your dry goods?
Create a list of your dream cabinetry. Add all of the features that would make your life in the kitchen more manageable, and we’ll help you find quality cabinets that put your must-haves in your possession.
The Choice is All in Your Layout
Your kitchen layout can influence the type of cabinets you choose. For example, if you have a small kitchen, cabinets with glass doors can create the illusion of more space.
Or, if you have an open-concept kitchen, you’ll want cabinets in the areas you frequent the most.
As you plan your future remodel, let your kitchen layout guide you to functional cabinets that keep you moving smoothly as you assemble your latest dinner masterpiece.
Consider Your Finishes
Designing custom cabinets lets you go wild with your aesthetic. No one will call you a mad artist if you know the finish matches your home’s aesthetic.
Be fearless and get creative with your cabinet finishes! Adding a pop of color or texture can significantly impact your kitchen’s visual appeal. You’d be surprised at how a bold color to an island cabinet can make it a magnetic pull towards one of the most noticeable aspects of your kitchen.
About Those Design Styles? We’ve Got You Covered!
Now, let’s talk about design styles. There are countless styles to choose from, but here are a few popular ones we’ve worked with to get you started.
Nothing screams “in fashion,” like clean lines, minimalist design, and a sleek finish. Modern cabinets may be the way to go if this statement gets your mind buzzing.
Some of the most popular features in modern cabinetry are flat-panel doors, straightforward hardware with no flair, and neutral colors that blend in seamlessly with your kitchen’s look.
No pop art here, but the whites, grays, blacks, and stainless steel of modern cabinets can bring a real contemporary feel to your updated kitchen.
If your goal isn’t to keep up with the Joneses but centers on pure functionality, traditional cabinetry is likely more your speed.
These cabinets often feature raised-panel doors, ornate hardware, and a warm wood tone that make your kitchen feel like home.
In our opinion, cherry, oak, or maple cabinets displaying brass or bronze hardware creates the perfect style for someone wanting a kitchen with a purely timeless look.
Currently, cottage core and getting in touch with a rural lifestyle while living in the big city are all the rage.
If your vision for cabinets is cozy and inviting, you’ll love the Little House on the Prairie vibes rustic cabinets exude.
With distressed wood, warm tones, and a sometimes weathered look, rustic cabinets can help you create the farmhouse-style kitchen of your dreams.
