It’s the dilemma of every kitchen renovation: What do we do about the cabinets? In many ways, selecting your cabinets sets the tone for how the rest of your kitchen will look. The color, style, and material inform you on how to select the rest of your kitchen items to match, and the price tells you how much of your budget you’ll have left for those other items.
Inexpensive Cabinets used to mean ‘cheap cabinets,’ or ‘stock cabinets,’ neither of which were particularly appealing to someone wanting to build a custom kitchen from the ground up. But now, with the ability to have a custom kitchen design made entirely from inexpensive cabinets, the sky is the limit. (contact us to learn more about this service)
Since cost is no longer an issue, why not create that one-of-a-kind look you’ve always wanted? For instance, if you’re an aspiring chef, you might want to create an island for added work surface. A custom-designed island is as easy as connecting a couple of cabinets, adding a kickboard, and placing a countertop on top of them.
If you need added functionality, consider installing an outlet or two in the countertop so you always have quick access to power for your small appliances. Or insert roll-out trays so you can select exactly the item you need without having to re-arrange a dozen pots and pans to get to it. If you like to entertain, you might want to place a few counter-height stools around the island so your guests can get that ‘chef’s table’ experience (and when they leave, you can sit down and rest your tired feet!).
Once you’ve decided how to customize your new island, you may also discover that there is a new area for potential storage space- since you will not be walking through the island, the ceiling directly above it is now the perfect place to put that overhead pot rack you’ve been eyeing.
With inexpensive, custom cabinet designs now readily accessible, your kitchen is a blank canvas, and the only limit to the design is your own imagination.
