Late summer is the perfect time to start thinking about updating your kitchen cabinets. You’ll find early in the process, though, that picking out kitchen cabinets may be the most difficult part of an interior design project. Consider these tips for choosing custom cabinets in Hudson. 

Have an idea of current design trends

Just because you may not have an eye for interior design doesn’t mean you’re excused from knowing what’s popular among homeowners. What’s popular in 2019 may not be popular in 2029, so it’s important to choose a style that will look good for years to come. Homeowners planning to put their residence on the market in the near future face additional pressure to choose cabinets that appeal to prospective buyers.

Determine the needs of your kitchen

It’s easy to get carried away with custom cabinets. While it’s tempting to select the most beautiful, aesthetically pleasing cabinets, we suggest making functionality a top priority. For example, if you have a large family or you enjoy hosting large groups of people, it may be a good idea to explore cabinets that feature pull-out shelves and other organizational elements.

Remember your budget

There are cabinets out there that can leave a number of families in financial distress. Before you dive too deep into the process, take the time to set a reasonable budget for your custom cabinets. Not only will this keep you within a pre-determined price range, but it will also allow you to complete the project sooner.

Choose a cabinet door profile first

Take a moment to note the first thing that catches your eye when you go to the kitchen. It’s not an appliance or even the sink — it’s the cabinet doors. If you don’t like a cabinet’s door profile for whatever reason, cross it off your list and move on to the next possibilities.

Compile a list of at least three styles you like

Deciding on custom cabinets is a lot like hiring a contractor. Come up with a list of three or four styles you like and go from there. You’ll give yourself a headache trying to select one particular cabinet from a list of seemingly endless options.

Know your ideal cabinet finish

Between the different colors and finishes, the process of selecting custom cabinets can become daunting in a hurry. This is where having a reliable design consultant comes into play. He or she can work with you in zeroing in on your ideal cabinet color and finish.

Make organization a priority

Let’s revisit functionality for a moment. What good are custom cabinets that don’t make your life easier? We’re willing to bet that your kitchen is the most popular space in your house, which is all the more reason to make organization a significant part of the decision-making.

Maximize your space

You want to get the most out of your kitchen, regardless of its size. Imagine how much easier making dinner would be if you had cabinets beneath your island or directly above the sink. There’s no question that updated cabinets allow you to maximize every inch of valuable kitchen space.
