You’re renovating your kitchen and it’s time to focus on the cabinets. Any professional will tell you that while remodeling your kitchen, choosing kitchen cabinets is a huge decision. This is where you want to dedicate the most time and money. There are plenty of options to take into consideration while shopping and it’s important to consider a variety of things.

To start with the basics, there are three different types of cabinets: stock, semi-custom, and custom. Stock cabinets are going to be the most standard type of cabinet, as they are available in standard sizes and styles. With a little extra customization, semi-custom cabinets allow for minor customization to the dimensions of the cabinet. Like stock cabinets, semi-custom cabinets are available in standard sizes. This would be a good option if you want to change something like the depth of the drawers. Custom cabinets are designed and measured to fit your needs. This type of cabinet would be best used if you have unique spaces in your kitchen that standard sizes won’t fit into. Custom cabinets are going to be more expensive than stock cabinets, but they allow you to create a cabinet that is going to best fit your vision and needs.

Once you decide on the type of cabinet you are interested in, you are going to want to choose the style, which is super important to the overall feel of the room. There are a variety of popular styles that you can consider, such as traditional-style cabinets with a lot of detail vs. shaker style or contemporary cabinets, which are going to be more simplistic. Craftsman style cabinets are going appear to have a clean look and are typically made out of natural wood vs. rustic-style cabinets, which are also made from natural wood but will appear to be rougher. If you are a tidy person, you may consider glass-front or open shelving cabinets. If you decide to go with either of these styles, you will be showcasing what is inside your cabinets. All of the styles we listed are beautiful additions to any kitchen.
