Choosing cabinets for your kitchen, bathroom, laundry room or other space is a big decision. Cabinets generally make up around half of the budget allotted for a single space, so getting this decision right is a critical one. Here at Cornerstone Kitchens, we have many different cabinet options to help you find the right choice for your needs. If you have been looking for cabinets, here are a few steps you can take to ensure that you are happy with your choice:
1. Choose the layout and design. One of the most important decisions you’ll need to make is the layout of your cabinets. How your cabinets look is important, but even beautiful kitchens or bathrooms can be dysfunctional without the right layout and organization. Choose to spend the majority of your time deciding how to function in your space.
2. Decide on the material. There are many materials that can work for your cabinets. Solid wood construction is going to give you the strongest results, but it is not necessarily right for every space. Consider the placement and how often your cabinets will be used to determine ideal materials.
3. Choose your door mounting style. Doors come in different styles with full overlay doors completely covering the cabinet face, partial overlay that exposes only a small portion, and inset where the doors sit inside the cabinet frame rather than on top of it.
4. Add glass, hardware and other details. Once you have decided the major components of your cabinets, it is time to add in the details that will send your design over the top. Choose glass insets, hardware, and other details at this time.
