Kitchen cabinets selection is a problematic process for most people. How about you? Don’t you know where to start? We prepared this article to guide you choose the best kitchen furniture step by step.
Identify Your Needs
First, start with identifying your needs. What does your kitchen need? A fully replacement or a partly buy such as drawer base kitchen cabinets, sink base cabinets, wall pantries etc. Analyze the needs of your kitchen, and your house in general, carefully to make the best choice.
Color and Surface Selection for Kitchen Cabinets
One of the most important part of a kitchen cabinets design is the color selection. You should take the colors of the other items in the kitchen into account to provide the best harmony possible. Also, the surfacing of the cabinets is evenly important. It helps the cabinets look shiny or matt. You should carefully think about the harmonization of these two.
If you ask us about the colors of the year, the most popular colors are ice white shaker, townsquare grey and cinnamon glaze so far. A lot of people used these colors with a wide range of surfaces to give a new, modern look to their kitchen.
Careful With the Sizes
Most of the people make errors measuring the sizes of the cabinet needed. It causes problems to both the cabinet makers and the customer. In most of the cases the customer buys another one with the right sizes. In order to avoid such wastes of money, you should be careful about the measurement, especially if you are ordering online. You may consider asking for the store to make the measurements if you don’t want to take any chance.
Pre-Assembling – Ready to Assemble (RTA) Kitchen Cabinets
If you are ordering online, most of the stores let you choose if you want your cabinet assembled or not. It actually depends on you. If you think you can assemble it, you can order it RTA (Ready to Assemble). However, if you think you can’t, then you should order it pre-Assembled, which means they will be getting the cabinet together and sending you, but you should also know that the shipping expenses of the assembled cabinet will be much higher than RTA because it takes up much more space.
Check for Kitchen Installment
Kitchen remodeling can be a job that needs extra processes such as resetting electric wires and water pipes, especially if you are planning a big change.
In situations like these, you should be in touch with your cabinet store to know about what you need. Some of the stores provide you the necessary arrangements in your kitchen but most of the time you have to find the plumbers and electricians to have it done.
