Choosing Cabinetry

Cabinets help bring a room to life and give a distinctive character to your home's interior, particularly when it comes to the kitchen. High quality cabinetry doesn't just look good but offers the benefit of an excellent system of organization. Whether you're choosing cabinets for your kitchen, bathroom or laundry room, the following guidelines will help give you an idea of what to take into consideration when making your selections.


What Consumers Want

When it comes time to design a kitchen, most homeowners focus first on the kitchen cabinetry because it will not only house all their kitchen gadgetry, dinnerware, edibles and cookware, but it will need to be able to endure daily use and abuse. Having a great looking kitchen doesn't mean anything if it's not usable. Here are some things to look for to make sure your kitchen cabinetry doesn't fall flat.


Kitchen Cabinetry 101

Cabinets are the key ingredient in any kitchen. They will influence the look and feel of the heart of your home more than anything else because it's not only the most visible part of the kitchen, but the "Meeting Place" of every home. Picking the right cabinetry is essential in creating your kitchen's personality. Here's a little Cabinetry 101 to help you get started choosing the right products for your cabinet design.

When it comes to your kitchen, make sure you know what you want it to look like, how you want the room to flow and how you want your workspace to fit your needs so you can create an attractive and functional living space. You can get some great ideas from poring through magazine articles and photographs, clipping out trendy advertisements and downloading cabinet brochures and images from thousands of websites. Once you've decided on your kitchen design it's time to pick the biggest component to your kitchen — the cabinetry.


Give Your Cabinetry Furniture Flair

Today, homes are being designed with open floor plans rather than small individual rooms. You'll find that cabinetry design is embracing this new trend to create large open living areas by creating cabinetry that has the look of furniture. With more space to be creative, cabinets don't have to be pushed to the room's perimeter but can become part of furniture groupings that are a key component to the overall design, functionality and décor of the living space.


Getting Crafty

Kitchen Craft, which is part of the MasterBrand Cabinets, Inc., offers multiple lines of modular, semi-custom and custom cabinetry. For over 30 years Kitchen Craft has come up with some innovative kitchen cabinetry. One of the keys to their success is that they focus on two lines of cabinetry (Aurora and Integra) rather than multiple lines. Both lines go way beyond the kitchen and into the bathroom, laundry room, office, garage and more.
