When it comes time for homeowners to choose new kitchen cabinetry for their kitchen remodel, there’s no doubt that they have plenty of choices. Indeed, homeowners will be looking at the style, design, and finish of cabinets to find one that suits their taste. However, there are more qualities than just appearances that they need to consider if they want to increase their kitchen’s value. The following are a few characteristics to keep an eye out for when selecting your new kitchen cabinetry.
Foremost in any remodeling or renovation project, you need to invest in high-quality kitchen cabinetry that will withstand years of wear and use. In the case of kitchen cabinets, consider the material and build of the cabinetry system. The highest quality cabinets are usually also known for being extremely durable, such as those made from solid wood and furniture-grade plywood. Cabinet door, frames, and shelves are a decent thickness, which lends to a sturdy construction.
Kitchens can get messy, and when it does, homeowners will want as little hassle as possible to get everything clean again. For painted cabinet doors and frames, consider a glossy or semi-gloss finish that lends itself to easy cleaning. Ideally, the cabinet shelves are made from a non-porous material that won’t absorb any accidental spills. Over time, this could weaken the shelf’s integrity, not to mention lead to unwanted mold growth.
There’s nothing quite as jarring than the loud slam of cabinet doors or drawers in the kitchen. As a result, more and more homeowners seek out soft-close hinges for their kitchen cabinetry. The hydraulic mechanism within these hinges makes the soft and silent close possible. When homeowners interact with their kitchen design, this subtle feature emphasizes a higher-end feel to the cabinetry.
Brilliant Handles and Drawer Pulls
The door design and color may be the most impressionable aspect of your new cabinetry. However, the hardware is what pulls your overall kitchen design together. Therefore, it’s just as important to be mindful of your cabinet knobs and handles choice when completing a new kitchen. Pick hardware that complements the overall kitchen style, or ones that will stand out like beautiful embellishments. A kitchen designer can help you pick a perfect pairing between your cabinets and hardware.
