Kitchen Cabinet Design Factors to Consider

Your kitchen cabinets receive daily use and contribute to the overall appearance of your home. So, if you’re installing or renovating your kitchen cabinets, it’s important to consider a few key design factors. These include:

Kitchen Appliances

While installing kitchen cabinets, make sure that they accommodate all of your desired appliances. Beyond the basic refrigerator, dishwasher, and oven, consider extras that you may want, such as microwaves, steamers, and warming drawers. Additionally, consider the size of your appliances to ensure that they’ll fit into your cabinet design. 

Open Space

The available space in your kitchen should influence your cabinet design. Although you may want an expansive design, it’s crucial to consider the space limitations of your floor plan. 

To streamline your cabinet design, consult the floor plan. Determine the best, most efficient location for each appliance, then add cabinets and islands. By starting with the floor plan, not the cabinets, you’ll ensure that there’s enough space in your kitchen to accommodate the design. 

Storage Needs

Cabinets serve one key function – storage! So, the amount of storage space that your household requires should factor into your cabinet design. Certain items, like mixing bowls and food processors, may need ample storage. You may want to display other items, like the family’s fine china, in glass-front cabinets. Consider all of these details to fabricate the best possible cabinet design.  

Cabinet Hardware

It may seem like a minor detail, but cabinet hardware can have a sizable impact on the overall appearance of your kitchen. Think of hardware as an ornament for your cabinets – use them as an opportunity to express your creativity and style. Just make sure that your hardware is as functional and durable as it is beautiful!
