How to Start Selecting Your Kitchen Cabinets

According to Remodeling’s Cost vs. Value Report for 2021, the average homeowner spent between $26,000 and $75,000 on their kitchen remodel depending on the changes needed. While kitchen remodeling can appear costly, it not only transforms your current living space, it also adds substantial value back into your home.

The Cabinet Coach can help you make the most of your investment. Today we’ll be exploring some places to start guiding your kitchen renovation project with a focus on kitchen cabinets. Kitchen cabinets are key to both the functionality and design of your kitchen, so choosing the right ones for your space is vital.  

Below are a few tips to keep in mind before starting your project with the Cabinet Coach. 

Start Planning a Project Budget 

While this can be difficult, planning a project budget is an important first step of any home renovation project. This will help guide not only the extent of renovations but also the cabinet options available for the project. Having a budget in mind when contacting the Cabinet Coach can help us make recommendations in line with both your kitchen goals and your budget.

Gather Inspiration

Do you want a kitchen design that looks rustic, clean, fresh, or bright? The cabinets you choose can have a huge impact on the room’s tone. 

If you don’t have any ideas about colors or themes, that’s okay. Browsing through  gallery pictures can be a great way to start brainstorming color schemes, cabinet types, and layouts that you would like to incorporate into your space. Be prepared to bring any ideas to your design consultation. 

Make a Kitchen Wish List 

Last but not least, research and make a note of important features that you’d like to incorporate into your kitchen. 

You can maximize storage space with pull-out spice racks, rollout trays and a Lazy Susan. Or, you could plan to add an island or second sink to make food preparation easier to manage. Having a wish list ahead of time allows us to customize your cabinets with space and budget constraints in mind.
