Buying cabinetry for your home is a big deal.

We can help you design a fully functional modern kitchen design and we’ll go over the following five things to consider when buying cabinets for your home with you:

  • Your Budget- When it comes to price, cabinets vary considerably so it’s imperative that you determine how much you want to spend on them. This way, you can look for quality cabinets that fit into your budget.
  • Kitchen Layout- The layout of your kitchen will determine the placement of the cabinetry along with the size, style and how many cabinets you’ll need.
  • Size- Cabinets come in all sizes. You have to measure the space in your kitchen properly to determine if you need short, tall, wide or thin cabinets. It’s the only way to get right combination to make sure your cabinetry fits properly.
  • Color- Choose your color carefully. You don’t have to settle for a wood finish if you like color but you do need to match the rest of your decor and choose a color that is not overwhelming.
  • The Finish- You have a wide variety of finishes to choose from that include varnish, paint, stain and lacquer. The finish you choose will depend on the rest of your decor but you’ll also want to consider durability and cleaning options.
