When designing and selecting kitchen cabinets, it is important to understand that cabinets are the basic building blocks of your kitchen – they will likely be the most expensive element and the stylistic centerpiece of any kitchen. The decision of which cabinets to select may, in fact, be likely to have the greatest impact on the overall outcome of the entire kitchen remodeling process. Therefore, it is of paramount consideration to carefully select the style, color, and design of your cabinets whether you are a homeowner remodeling your kitchen, or a contractor working on a job for a realtor or buyer.
For contractors, it is important to understand what the client is looking for in terms of the stylistic impact of the cabinet — whether they have a sleek, modern vision or they are searching for a dignified, classic style. For a contemporary look, most homeowners and contractors will choose European-style frameless cabinets that lack a face frame for a spacious, minimalist design, in conjunction with varied metallic finishes and contemporary-styled doors, many of which can feature highly modern decorative elements. These cabinets typically will feature concealed hinges bored into the cabinet door directly, as well as drawers with Blum-motion slides. Classic kitchens may feature American-style cabinets with face frames, which have the advantage of stability in exchange for slightly less cabinet space, as well as more traditional finishes and door selection. Top of the line classic cabinet styles may include expensive barrel hinges and hardwood drawer boxes with dovetail joints.
