Replacing your cabinets may be a big expense and may take at least 40% of your total kitchen remodelling budget if you are renovating your kitchen. The most popular cabinets in the contemporary kitchen remodelling are the white ones with more streamlines and less fussy styles like the square corners and clean lines of the shaker cabinetry. The homeowners decade ago used to prefer dovetail joints inside the drawers but now the manufacturers as well as, the Kitchen Wholesalers, offer premium features with modern styles and great designs.
Before getting out for shopping to purchase kitchen cabinets do a bit of research on the kitchen cabinet manufacturers and retail websites as well as spend a little time to look at the displays of the stores. There are basically three types of kitchen cabinet categories, the stock, custom, and semi-custom. The stock kitchen cabinets are normally pre-assembled, and you can get them at home centres. There are also stock versions which you need to assemble. The stock cabinets come with limited colours as well as styles.
On the other hand, the semi-custom kitchen cabinets come with a variety of styles, colours and configurations. The custom kitchen cabinets are the most expensive ones but are versatile in terms of their features and designs. As far as styles are concerned, you can choose either the framed ones or the frameless cabinets. The framed cabinet is usually made of the frame of a box and face for attaching the drawers and doors. The frameless cabinets popularly known as the European style of kitchen cabinets do not contain the face frame. The doors and drawers of a frameless cabinet are directly attached to the box of the cabinet. The appearance of a European style of kitchen cabinet is more advanced and the interior access is comparatively easier.
The best and well-made cabinets normally have the solid wood drawers and instead of stapled particleboard prefer dovetail joinery. You should choose the cabinets which have solid wood door and door-frames with wood or plywood panel. If you have a good budget, then focus on the features like the built-in charging station and lift cabinet which swings up and out. On the other hand, if you have a lower budget then consider the stock cabinets which can be affordable for you. You can get fully assembled stock cabinets as well as the non-assembled ones which you have to assemble onsite.
