One detail that is often overlooked in new homes designs, or remodels, is the cabinetry. Many homeowners view cabinetry as a necessity instead of a design statement that can impact the overall aesthetic of your home, as well as the value of your property. Her are a few things to consider when looking at new cabinetry for your home.
Consider Your Budget
When remodeling your home, the first thing you should consider is your budget. Set a desired budget and then set a maximum budget that will give you some room for necessary upgrades, or unexpected emergencies. Cabinetry pricing can vary greatly. At Southern Stone, our cabinets are all-wood, and manufactured to fit all price points.
Consider Your Cabinet Style
Do you desire framed cabinets, or do you prefer a sleek frameless look? Will natural wood colors match the appearance of your home, or would it be better to have white or grey panels? When choosing your cabinet style you should consider the important focal points in your kitchen or bathroom. Do you want your countertops to stand out, or perhaps a unique backsplash? If so, traditional cabinets may be the best option for you.
Consider the Hardware
Although some modern designers prefer to ignore the accessories to maintain a very simple aesthetic, you should know that the right accessories can, and will improve cabinet functionality. They also can be a pretty serious investment. The majority of your time shopping will likely be spent searching for the right handles and accessories. Don’t forget there are more than just handles that need to be taken into consideration though – you also may want to consider mounted lighting fixtures to have installed on your upper cabinets! For best results, you should make sure your cabinet fixtures match your sink and/or faucet - this is an important and often overlooked detail!
