Upgrading your kitchen with a stylish remodel can add big bucks to your home’s market value. Whether you’ve decided to do a full overhaul, or just update a few elements, kitchen cabinets are often the biggest investment you can make in your kitchen remodel.

FOLLOW YOUR DESIGN TASTE

There are several factors that go into making the best kitchen cabinet decision, and the varieties are many. Before you start looking, consider your own tastes, or if you’re remodeling to sell, think about what is currently in style.  Do you like sleek lines and minimal embellishment? Then you might set your sights on modern cabinets. Prefer the classic look? Try traditional or farmhouse style cabinets. You could even forego cabinets entirely and opt for simple open shelving.

CONSIDER THE COLOR

The color you choose for your kitchen cabinets can really set the tone for the entire space. Your cabinets can act as a focal point by using a bold accent color, or can be used to brighten up a dark or smaller kitchen with white, cream, or light-toned hues. Color is affected by lighting and the other colors around it, so pay attention to the wall, backsplash and counter colors. You can use similar counter and cabinet colors for a monochrome look or contrast dark and light colors for more drama.

PAY ATTENTION TO DETAILS

Aside from color, another important aspect of cabinets is the structure and detailing. Framed cabinets can add dimension and are most often found in traditional-style kitchens. Full overlay cabinets won’t show hinges and offer a sleek design that fares well in modern kitchens.

You can also ditch the cabinet doors completely and use your dining ware as décor. This look can brighten up small or poorly lit kitchens. Glass doors work similarly and can make the whole kitchen seem bigger and more luxurious.

SOMETHING ABOUT HARDWARE

The last thing to consider while you choose your perfect kitchen cabinets are the knobs or handles that act as functional accessories. Matching the style of hardware to the style of cabinet is essential to create a seamless design. Cabinets can be especially expensive, so if you’re on a budget splurging on hardware can make it seem like you spent a lot more than you did.
