Where to start when selecting kitchen cabinets

The hardest place to begin when remodeling your kitchen is determining what kitchen cabinets will work best for you and your family in regards to functionality and design. While you strive for your space to be appealing to the eye, you also want it to be a breeze to find important items when your space is in use.

When getting started on a remodeling project, the first thing we ask our customers to consider is the functionality of their space. You want to invest your money in cabinets that work well for you and your space. When beginning your 3-D mock-up, we ask you what your end goal is for the project. When selecting cabinet options, it is important to keep in mind these three tips.

    1. Optimize your space: We often see clients leaving valuable space unused because it is difficult for them to access. Corner cabinets do not need to spell disaster for your kitchen space. There are many ways to make your space functional without losing the visual appeal.
    2. Out of sight out of mind: Use your cabinets to help hide some of the eye sores in your kitchen. At Superior Stone & Cabinet, we offer hundreds of storage solutions for your kitchen cabinets so you can hide smelly garbage bins or store kitchen sponges.
    3. Easy Access: Cooking can be difficult if you don’t have easy access to the items you need most. If you can’t reach your spices as quickly as possible or find that cutting board to chop up your vegetables, it could throw off the entire cooking process. If you know you use certain items in your kitchen more than others, make sure to keep those within arms reach in your kitchen cabinets.

Visually Appealing

Your kitchen should be a place you want to spend your time in. If it does not look the way you want, you are less likely to want to spend your time cooking and entertaining. There are variety of colors and styles when it comes to selecting your kitchen cabinets. When selecting your cabinet of choice, it is important to consider your personal style as well as interior trends. If you look to sell your home in the future, the kitchen will be the “make it, or break it” point.
