The front of a farmhouse sink can be left in its rough, natural state or it can be polished and even carved. The other option is a boxy sink fabricated from granite or other slabs — the best choice if you want to match your chosen countertop. Regardless of the design, though, your cabinets will require some extra reinforcement to support a stone sink, says Joe Percoco of Percoco Marble and Tile in Denver, Colo. He strongly recommends that the sink cabinet be reinforced to hold the extra weight, which can total more than 300 pounds. Joe says that one of their block sinks can require "four guys to get it into place." Make sure your cabinets have similar strength.

You‘ll have a great deal of choices in this area, from glass and ceramic to many types of granite or stone. In general, ceramic and synthetics will be the cheapest materials; glass, stone and other natural materials will be more expensive. Ultimately, the style you choose may be defined by whether or not you plan to match the existing design of your kitchen or if you‘ll use the mosaic backsplash as a bit of a style departure. For example, an understated, contemporary kitchen could be complemented with a simple, black-and-white design—or you might choose to add color with a vibrant, multicolored mosaic. Using glass will generally create a brighter and more reflective design, whereas stone or granite may offer a more matte feel.

According to Jack Healy, the increasing popularity of stone sinks is part of a larger design trend toward Old World style natural materials, such as stone, wood and copper, and away from man-made materials like stainless steel. Jack, who‘s been selling what he terms "functional art" for more than 10 years, says that people want utilitarian objects to be beautiful, and stone is a good way to have both form and function. And, he notes, your kitchen won‘t look like your neighbor‘s, because every piece of stone is intrinsically different.

An alternative way to get new cabinets on a budget is to use modular kitchen cabinets. Modular cabinets are made up of pre-made cabinet parts that fit together to form a functional kitchen layout. Modular cabinets can be purchased from many neighborhood and online retailers, and they‘re usually delivered already assembled or in ready-made sections that can be installed on premises fairly easily. Because modular cabinets are pre-constructed, they‘re generally less expensive and are a good option for a kitchen renovation on a limited budget.

One of the major advantages to using laminate, other than its low cost, is that it is a durable material that will hold up to the heavy use of the average kitchen. It doesn‘t warp with time like wood can, and it‘s resistant to fading. It also holds stain color uniformly so each cabinet will be exactly the same throughout your kitchen. Laminate is also available in a wide variety of colors, patterns and door styles, so it can be used in both traditional and modern kitchens, depending on your specific style and taste.

Conversely, modern and contemporary kitchen design styles often incorporate up-to-date, present-era materials such as metal, glass and lacquered wood or laminate, and their design is often fairly unadorned, sleek and simple compared to their traditional counterparts. Angular cabinetry styles, simple and straightforward hardware, and flat, efficient surfaces are common in modern kitchen designs. Additionally, these styles may feature bold colors as an opportunity to express a bit of style personality, whereas traditional designs tend more toward muted or historical color schemes.

But for families who want to have some fun with their kitchen decor, decorative painting is the way to go. These can be in an array of distinct art styles, with the common theme threaded throughout. This way modern, classical and even DIY styles can be featured on one wall, combining to create a diverse and interesting design.

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.

Unique color-matched finishes are available with custom cabinetry, along with hand-painted faux finishes, glass-paneled doors, and decorative wood carvings. Additionally, internal accessories such as lazy Susans, gadget garages, recycling bins and spice or wine racks can be added to meet the homeowner‘s unique functional needs. High-end hardware is also found on the highest-quality cabinetry, often made of unique materials and high-end metals.
