Home Improvement & Maintenance Tips : How to Choose Kitchen Cabinets


Hi I’m Tim Gipson and I’m going to talk to
you about how to choose kitchen cabinets. Now essentially there are two types of look
that we look at in kitchen cabinets. There is a real traditional style and there is a
more contemporary style. Now as far as looking at creating a modern kitchen look really a
good place to be is to kind of be in between those two looks or use a combination of those
two looks to achieve something that is really not at the two extremes so it gives you something
that will look really nice but it will keep from locking you in to either of those two
extremes so that when you want to look at adding resale value to your house then it
is something that is going to help you in that area. So the first consideration when
you look at choosing your cabinets of course is going to be your budget so you need to
look at your budget and then you need to look at your lay out and you need to look at the
type of counter tops you have or the type of finishes and again the type of look that
you are trying to look at. Now some tips in trying to determine the kind of cabinets that
you want to look at, you can go on line and there are several cabinet manufacturers that
actually have some tutorials in there where you can put it in your lay out, you can choose
different kind of cabinets and actually get a 3-D view of what it would look like so those
are some great tools to use. The other option is going to your local home improvement store.
They actually have people you can work with and you can sit down with them and you can
look at the different finishes and different type of cabinets that they will have in stock
and then they also can work with you with some tools. So again when you look at selecting
cabinets you want to look at your budget, you want to look at the layout, the kind of
finishes that you have and then again I highly recommend you try to go with something that
is a combination of a traditional and contemporary look so that you get a final look that not
only meets your style but also adds appropriate resale value by not bringing you to extremes.
So I’m Tim Gipson and that’s how to select kitchen cabinets.
