Planning your dream kitchen? Much of its success hinges on the kitchen cabinet design — after all, cabinets take up the most space. And you need to make a lot of decisions about those cabinets before ordering them.
Here are 5 things you should know before choosing your cabinets.
1. Your Kitchen’s Measurements
It’s common to flip through magazines, scroll through blogs or spot something on TV and want it for your home.
And buying it may be as easy as picking up the phone, tapping a button or ordering through a digital assistant like Alexa or Google Nest.
But while that works for appliances, décor and window treatments, you need a different approach for big permanent installations in rooms with limited space.
When it comes to kitchen cabinets, one size does not fit all. You may like what you see in a galley kitchen, but the same design won’t work in your L-shaped kitchen.
On top of that, you may have specific wants that require more space than your kitchen allows.
That’s why it’s important to know the room’s exact measurements. Your designer can use this information to create a cabinet plan that maximizes space and works for you.
