Kitchen cabinet can be a dominant element in your kitchen. It defines the kitchen peformance, weather it is stylish, elegant, colorful or elegant. still, kitchen cabinet plays important role. Then, what kind of the best kitchen cabinet that is appropriate with your kitchen, just grab some ideas below.

Freshen Up With Fresh Paint

If existing cabinets are of good quality, in excellent working condition and the layout functions well, the most affordable option is to simply paint or restain them. Another alternative, refacing, involves installing a new veneer on the exterior of the cabinet box and replacing the doors and drawer fronts, and should be handled by a professional.

Costly Doors and Drawer Fronts

If you decide to reface rather than replace your cabinets, be forewarned: Doors and drawer fronts account for the greatest expense. “Sixty to 70 percent of the cost of the cabinet is the door,” says Jeff Cannata, past president of the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and president of Designer’s Showcase Kitchens & Baths Inc. in Carol Stream, Ill. “So, if you’re paying someone to put a new door on or a new drawer in … it might be more affordable to purchase all new cabinets.” And with new cabinets, there’s an added bonus: the freedom to explore different kitchen layouts.

Starting Fresh With Custom Cabinets

Once the decision has been made to install new cabinets, there are other choices ahead. Are custom cabinets required or will stock cabinets fit the bill? Custom cabinets are built to exact specifications and offer endless design possibilities. This option requires the longest lead time and is the most expensive route, but it also allows you to include cool hidden conveniences like this built-in refrigerator, cleverly disguised as part of the cabinetry.

Best of Both Worlds: Semi-custom

Semicustom cabinets are just that: partially custom. While the cabinets are made to the homeowner’s size requirements, the manufacturer produces them in predetermined increments. Often a spacer may be needed to conceal unused wall space, and that sacrifices storage. The range of materials, designs, finishes and accessories available is not as broad as entirely custom cabinets, but semicustom cabinets cost less while still allowing more flexibility than stock cabinets.

Be Extraordinary With Stock Cabinets

Stock cabinets, which are the least expensive of new cabinet options, are premade and come in standard sizes. Though stock cabinets often get a bad rap in terms of quality of construction, there are many on the market that are made of solid wood. “Eight out of 10 kitchens could probably be done with stock cabinetry. And what I mean by that is a good designer can design with any line,” Jeff says. “Anyone can say, ‘Oh, I need this cabinet to be 21 1/2 inches.’ But a good designer should be able to design using a 21-inch cabinet.” Design by Thomas A. Conway

Quality of Durability

No matter what type of cabinet is selected, it’s important to evaluate the quality of hinges, doors, drawer systems and finish. Homeowners should choose cabinets that offer at least a five-year warranty, according to Al Pattison, president of NKBA.

Choose the Right Door Style

Next, consider the construction type and door style. Framed cabinets, which are popular in traditional kitchens, have a front frame around the cabinet opening. The door attaches to the frame. Frameless, or European-style cabinets, have no front frame. The door attaches directly to the side of the cabinet. Frameless cabinets, which are often used in contemporary kitchens, offer an advantage over framed cabinets. Because there is no front frame, there is open access to the cabinet interior.

Add Hidden Functionality

After giving thought to the cabinets’ exterior, turn some attention to their intended use and interior features. “It used to be that we would place cabinetry in the room and make it functional,” says Al. “Now every cabinet has a purpose.” There are pullout drawers for pots and pans, oversize drawers for baking sheets and even high-tech under-counter cooling drawers that keep beverages and snacks within easy reach. Accessories like lazy Susans, built-in spice racks, drawer organizers and other cabinet extras make the kitchen a much more efficient and enjoyable place. Photo courtesy of GE Monogram

Complete the Look With Hardware
