Choosing your cabinets when building a new home is a fun and exciting experience. There are many different options to choose from, and you are given the opportunity to create a look that fits your tastes perfectly.

In this article, we will examine some of the basic knowledge needed to select the cabinets that are functional, beautiful, and stand the test of time.

Cabinet StylesBasswood III-2 19961 cabinets detail

Like other components of your new home, there are seemingly endless styles that you can choose for your cabinets. Your cabinets can be built to flow seamlessly into your overall interior design. Some prefer modern looking cabinets with solid colors and flat surfaces while others may opt for a Victorian look with graceful and elegant ornamentation. Some prefer the warmth and beauty of a Tuscan style while others desire the minimalistic lines of a European appearance. Whichever style you choose, it is essential to ensure that it is a style you will love. Your cabinets are a significant focal point of your entire kitchen and are not likely to be replaced anytime soon after building. This is why choosing the style that suits your personal taste, and that will satisfy your interior design preferences for years to come is important.

Custom Measurements

Depending on your floor plan, your cabinets can be custom fitted to the exact space you have available. While stock cabinets are available, having your cabinets custom build for your home will guarantee an exceptional fit and will integrate perfectly into your home design. Custom cabinets are often of a higher quality than stock cabinets as well, and will last far longer. Skilled craftsmen with extensive experience are better equipped to create your custom cabinets than cabinets built on an assembly line. Your builder can assist you in choosing a layout for your cabinets. This includes the number, the size, the type, and the position of your cabinets. Because your cabinets are such an integral component of your kitchen, the cabinet and drawer combinations can be designed for your optimal use and even your personal cooking style.

Face Frames

Cabinet face frames are also an important consideration. Face frames attach to the internal portion of your cabinet and are exceptionally valuable. Not only do they strengthen your cabinet, but they also hide the internal construction and provide the beauty that matches your style. Cabinet face frames also come in many different styles. Often, they are enhanced with moulding to enhance your chosen style. Face frame construction also varies in size and thickness to perfectly fit your custom cabinets and desired look.

Your Builder Is a Resource

Choosing a builder with experience and knowledge regarding custom cabinets is a great benefit. They can assist you in all facets of your cabinet design and installation, and can provide valuable insight in an optimal layout for your home plan and desired design. Take advantage of their expertise, and have fun. It is not often one has the opportunity to choose their custom kitchen cabinets. Enjoy the experience and use your cabinet selection to create a look that’s all your own.
