When preparing to renovate an old kitchen or install a new one, exploring the range of kitchen cabinet components will be an essential first step in creating a custom kitchen to reflect your own unique style. Kitchen cabinets can be customized with a wide variety of components that will allow you to express your design tastes, while simultaneously addressing your specific cooking and storage needs.
The most common and often most affordable way to customize your kitchen cabinets is through the use of cabinet hardware. Door handles and drawer pulls come in a wide array of colors, materials, sizes and shapes. They are usually metal but can differ enough to change the look of your kitchen from traditional to modern or vice versa. They can be found anywhere from the most high-end kitchen design store to your local home retailer. They can also be installed quite easily with basic tools, making their inclusion in your design a cheap and efficient way to update the look of your kitchen.
As you begin your kitchen remodel, one aspect that will become readily apparent is that quality kitchen cabinets are an essential element of your design. Not only do quality kitchen cabinets serve the important practical purpose of storage, but they take up the most amount of real estate in your kitchen. This means they‘ll play a big role in determining the overall look of your space.
Though you keep the existing cabinet boxes, you will need to replace the doors, drawer faces and side panels for the best overall match. While you‘re at it, you might want to consider replacing the hardware as well. A new style and look for the handles, moldings and hinges can be simple and inexpensive, and it will make a huge difference in the overall feel of the room. You can find new hardware at any home improvement store or your local mom and pop store that specializes in refacing. Although you can have the job done professionally, refacing your kitchen cabinets is generally a good DIY project. You will need to decide whether or not you want to do the job with laminate, rigid thermofoils (RTFs) or wood veneers.
