Creative Thinking for Your Cabinet Design

Furniture stores offer seemingly endless choices of cabinet designs these days.  In terms of materials, colors, design, there are so many available how do you choose?  Before you lose hope realize that your budget will help narrow down field a great deal.

One thing to consider before you spend a great deal of money on new cabinets is the possibility of refinishing the cabinets.  It is cheaper and saves time.  With a new front and hardware your cabinets can be transformed into what will look like a completely new set of cabinets.  Put some new hardware on your drawers and doors and you can represent your own creative ideas.

If you decide to go the route of new cabinets there are several factors that will influence the cost.  Brand, size, material, and accessories inside the drawers and cabinets will dictate the cost.  If you want to keep cost down look at stock cabinets.  As  soon as you start getting into custom cabinetry your prices will skyrocket.  Mid-range cabinets are where you will find the most value.  the material will be better than the cheapest, but the cost will be much lower than custom made cabinets.

Kitchen cabinet design can add charm to your kitchen making it more attractive.  While we do not advocate buying the most expensive cabinets, we see no point in taking out a second mortgage just to remodel your kitchen.

For a more custom look you can select your kitchen cabinets with distinctive wood species such as pine, cherry, oak, poplar, alder maple, hickory, and birch. Amongst all, oak and hickory are the hardest and the heaviest. For the purposes of carpentry, it is usually cherry, maple and birch, which are deemed the most appropriate. However, most pocket friendly options are Alder and Poplar so keep this in mind for your cabinet design.
