Looking for a complete kitchen renovation? That’s surely an interesting task, but time-consuming at the same time. There are so many materials and colours to choose from, you can get lost. But we have decided to make it a bit easier on you and introduce you to the best tips and tricks on how to choose kitchen cabinets and countertops.
1. Consider the style
Do you like more traditional looking kitchens or modern looking ones? Depending on the style you choose, it can determine the overall appearance of your kitchen a lot.
2. Choose the Design
There are a few styles for the doors of your kitchen that you can choose from. One of the most common styles is the shaker kitchen, which is often used for traditional kitchens. The other option is to go with completely flat doors, which is a distinction of contemporary style kitchens.
While you want for your kitchen to be beautiful, you also want to maximize the storage space. Choose the kitchen cabinets according to the items you will store in them.
4. Consider the materials
There are several materials you can choose from for your kitchen countertops. We offer quartz, marble and granite countertops from various brands. Each material has its own characteristic and it is best to choose the one that will fit your style of use the best.
5. Consider the atmosphere you want to achieve
Do you like classic kitchens or you want something a bit more unusual? For romantic, cosy kitchens choose softer colours of both cabinets and countertops. For more serious kitchens consider the contrasting colours of cabinets and countertops.
6. Choose the colour
If you are uncertain about the colour, look at the colours that appear the most in your home. That specific colour can be the safest choice that will blend into your home style effortlessly.
7. Mix and match
You are not limited to only one colour of kitchen cabinets and countertops…If you want, you can choose two different colours, even materials, one for the cabinets and the other for the kitchen island, for example…Or you can choose the different colour of cabinets for the kitchen island.
8. Visit the showroom
For the best insight of the colours and materials, it is best to see them in person. You can ask for a free sample to take with you; that might help you decide what will suit your home the best.
