You have recently finished constructing the shell of your new house. Now you are looking to do the interior fit-out in order to match the space with your personality and lifestyle. While you will need to focus on every area of your interior living space, the kitchen is one of the rooms that will require the most attention.
When planning kitchen fit-outs, you should pick your cabinetry carefully. The kind of cabinets you install will impact the appearance of your kitchen and the entire house, but also determine how much stuff you can store in the kitchen.
That said, here are some key factors that cabinet makers make before making cabinets for kitchen fit-outs.
The Size of the Kitchen
The dimensions of your empty kitchen dictate how the size of your kitchen cabinets. Cabinet makers will take measurements of your kitchen's width, depth, and height to figure out how wide, deep, and tall your cabinets should be.
For example, kitchens with normal floor-to-ceiling heights call for the use of standard height kitchen cabinetry while kitchens with taller ceilings can accommodate taller cabinets.
The Desired Cabinet Material
Kitchen cabinets can be made from a variety of materials, with the vast majority of options used being wood and wood-based materials. Some of the most widely used cabinet-making materials include wood, plywood, medium-density fibreboard (MDF), chipboard, laminate, acrylic and many others.
Most cabinet makers specialise in the construction of cabinets using assorted materials, so you should choose a cabinet maker based on the cabinet material you want for your kitchen.
The Style of the Kitchen
If well-thought-out, the interior design of your kitchen can serve as a focal point of visual interest in your home. With that said, the style of your kitchen can have implications on the design of your kitchen cabinets.
Good cabinets should not take away from the style of your kitchen – they should complement it. If you are an oldie at heart, elevated panel doors will achieve a traditional look. If you want to create a modern look, installing cabinets with shaker-style doors makes good sense.
The above guide is intended to help you pick the right cabinets for your new kitchen. If you still have questions about how to make the right decision, feel free to get in touch with a cabinet maker near you. Tell them about your needs and they will recommend the best solution possible.
