Finally getting to that kitchen renovation is exciting; in today’s market, there are more space-saving features and stylistic designs than ever.


The materials of your cabinets will be your first concern.

However, other materials available include stainless steel, melamine, smooth or textured laminates, glass and MDF used for many painted door styles.

Door Designs

Next, you will want to choose your door design. There are countless styles to choose from, from no ornamentation to highly-detailed craftsmanship. Of course, the more detailed the work is, the more expensive it will be, and you may have to wait longer for your delivery to arrive.


The color of your kitchen cabinets can set the color scheme. Depending on the type of material you choose, you can have anything from dark chocolate cabinets to pale, tan ones. Some are more yellow, and some shine red. Painted cabinets seem to be the most popular right now where you can choose almost any color you desire. White painted cabinets are always a classic and stand alone as the #1 choice.


While the face of your cabinetry is important, don’t forget about the hardware. Considered the jewelry of the kitchen, you can decide between various types of materials, finishes, and styles from contemporary to traditional. You will find all kinds of shapes and sizes. You can also find cabinets that have hidden handles for a clean, more contemporary, minimalistic look.

Cabinets are meant for storage, and the doors are just their pretty faces. Cabinets have many interior options to maximize your storage space. Lazy Susans for corners, pull-out spice racks, trash bins, and docking stations for electronics are only a few of the many innovations today.
