Choosing the Perfect Cabinets For Your Kitchen

Your cabinets organize and contain everything you need for kitchen success. Your cabinet doors often make up the largest surface area on your kitchen's walls. What's facing you when you face the day? If you're tired of looking at someone else's idea of luxury, long-dated, or dreaming of a new style to take your kitchen into new style territory, it's time to talk cabinets for your Cincinnati kitchen remodel.

When remodeling your kitchen, you have the perfect opportunity to install new cabinets. If you think adding new kitchen cabinets is a great idea, we are here to help you make the right choice with the tips below. After all, these kitchen cabinets will help create a kitchen that you love and which reflects your personality and style.

Cabinet Door Style Options

This might seem like a no-brainer, but it’s possible to settle for underwhelming cabinets because you are overwhelmed with other details when remodeling your kitchen. However, it’s important to consider the theme and style you want for your kitchen during every step of your design journey.

Kitchen cabinets have to fit in with the overall plan of the house. Your designer might have ideas that can upgrade your look and preserve continuity throughout your home, no matter when it was built. Gather photos of cabinets that catch your eye online, and pay special attention to common themes you love. You can start anytime, long before it's time to remodel!

Consider Contemporary Design

Many of the latest kitchen cabinet designs feature a sleek look that suits many modern homes. Contemporary slab cabinet door designs also improve the functionality of handless kitchen cabinets that have push-open and close designs instead. Another option is recessed cabinet pulls that still give you something to hold onto when opening and closing your cabinets while allowing you to maintain a sleek design. This is a great way to incorporate technology into your kitchen cabinets and enjoy the convenience and improved functionality. You can also add sleek pulls to modern kitchen cabinet doors for a flashy finish.

Classic Cabinets for Timeless Kitchen Style

Classic kitchen cabinet styles, like shaker doors with wide square framing around an inset panel, or other more traditional kitchen cabinet styles might be right for an older home or a remodel where you're channeling timeless style. Choose classic hardware and complementary light fixtures and plumbing to complete the look!

Add More Color to Your Kitchen

Cabinets are a great way to add more color and personality to your kitchen. Many homeowners use bolder and brighter colors when adding cabinets. Currently, warmer earth tones and pinky hues are popular for kitchen cabinets. See Sherwin Williams' color of the year, Redend Point, and Pantone's Viva Magenta for great examples. Consider two-toned cabinets if you're not quite ready for bold kitchen color everywhere. This is an especially great idea if you want to inject a mood that won’t overwhelm the rest of the room. Additionally, it’s possible to refresh your kitchen down the line by repainting your cabinets when you get the itch for something new. Cabinet decorating ideas continue to evolve.

Get Vertical

In smaller kitchens or when storage demand is high, make extra use of vertical space for kitchen cabinets. Your custom kitchen design can include floor-to-ceiling cabinets, as this maximizes the space you have to store your kitchen gear. You will appreciate this extra space and you can make life easier by storing items that you use infrequently higher up the shelf.
