Kitchen Design - Think Color & Style When Choosing Cabinets

Today I'll talk about color and style when remodeling a kitchen.

One of the first things you do whenever you remodel or redesign any space is think color.  Since the biggest ticket price in a kitchen remodel goes to the cabinets, we'll talk about cabinet color.  Kitchen cabinets come in a huge selection of colors - wood finishes from unfinished wood to dark wood, painted finishes from white to black and glazed and distressed. Whatever color you decide upon, remember that you are going to have to live with it for a very long time! 

Next choose style.  All cabinet companies have a huge selection of cabinet styles from traditional to contemporary to somewhere in between.  You have raised panels, recessed panels and flat panels.  You have full overlay doors to partial overlay doors.  Simple or elaborate, the decision is up to you.  Just remember to take into consideration the overall style of the home inside and outside when deciding upon style. 

Here's a hint of the look we're going for...

Yes, we're staying with white.  These cabinets from Thomasville are made of maple and have a partial overlay door with a simple recessed panel.  White will never go out of style and it's worked for us for the past 12 years so we're thinking it will work for us for the next 12 years and more!

Once you decide upon those things you are ready to think countertops.  There are many options available for every budget.  My next blog will discuss the many different choices that are out there.
