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.
If you‘re dealing with a blind corner in your cabinet, you may want to consider adding pull-out shelves—these will allow you to reach into the cabinet and choose which shelf to access, while pivoting the unused shelf to the back of the cabinet.
Wood is more expensive than any of the composite cabinet materials available, and solid wood doors and drawer fronts are typical in high-quality cabinets. Examples of the more luxurious woods used in quality cabinets are cherry, mahogany, chestnut and cypress. These woods are durable, naturally beautiful, less common and therefore significantly more expensive to use. When considering the quality of your kitchen cabinets, the insides matter as well. The boxes of cabinets themselves are often made of particleboard or even medium-density fiberboard (MDF). These compressed-wood options are often used by cabinet builders to reduce the cost of the project. In high-end cabinetry, you might find solid-wood cabinet frames as well as doors; however this drives up the cost of your cabinets significantly. Regardless of the material used, the insides of high-quality cabinets should be smooth, not rough to the touch, with shelves at least three-quarters of an inch thick. Dovetail construction is recommended over glued joints to provide cabinets that hold up to heavy use. This mortise-and-tenon or dovetail joinery is seen in the highest-quality cabinets and will definitely drive up the cost of your remodeling project.
Tall kitchen cabinets, on the other hand aren‘t as black-and-white in terms of sizing. While they are usually 84 inches high, they can range up to 96 inches tall as well to accommodate required pantry or utility storage.
