A Guide to Nailing Kitchen Cabinets in your Home

Regardless of how well a kitchen is designed, cabinets are what really make a kitchen functional. With the help of kitchen cabinets, you can keep your space organised and make it more efficient. Moreover, kitchen cabinets can also help define the look and style of your space.

If you’re planning a kitchen renovation or you’re building a new one, you must consider kitchen cabinets carefully. But, how do you choose the best kitchen cabinets for your space? Don’t worry – I’m here to help you out.

As the head of purchasing at Ross’s Discount Home Centre in Perth, I have helped countless customers choose kitchen cabinets. Today, I’ll do the same for you. So, continue reading this post as I compile a handy guide to choosing kitchen cabinets in Perth.

Layout

There’s no point going out to look at kitchen cabinets in Perth if you haven’t yet considered your kitchen layout. You must understand that cabinets are available in different designs to suit different kitchen layouts. Depending on the size and the layout of your kitchen, you will need a combination of wall cabinets, base cabinets and pantry cabinets. You’ll find all these cabinets at our store at Ross’s Discount Home Centre in Guildford.

Keep in mind that straight line cabinets work best in small kitchens while larger kitchens can go with L-shaped cabinets. If you’re planning an island kitchen, then you can incorporate cabinets into the island as well. The bottom line here is that you must choose cabinets that reflect your kitchen layout.

Storage requirements

The primary purpose of kitchen cabinets is to offer storage, so you must consider storage requirements before buying cabinets. Remember that cabinets can be used to store everything ranging from utensils to food and appliances.

Make sure to choose kitchen cabinets that offer you ample storage. There’s no such thing as excess storage, so all you need to do is to buy cabinets with plenty of storage.

Features

Kitchen cabinets don’t necessarily offer a tone of features. However, there are a few features that you’ll want to look out for. Make sure to choose cabinets that include both drawers and doors. Soft closing drawers and doors are a great option.

Other parts, accessories and features you can consider including built-in charging stations, pull-out trash cans and stylish handles. Do note that additional features will increase the price of a cabinet by some degree.

Construction and style

Kitchen cabinets in Perth are available in a range of styles, and they are made of different materials. Wooden cabinets have been the traditional choice, but they are being replaced by PVC and more commonly, particle board. I recommend you to consider PVC or MDF particle board as they are modern looking and they can be made to be waterproof.

When it comes to the style of a cabinet, you can choose from framed and frameless. Framed cabinets are a classic choice while frameless cabinets are a more modern choice. Personally, I prefer frameless cabinets over framed cabinets.

Conclusion:

There are several things to consider when you’re looking for kitchen cabinets. Always choose cabinets depending on the size and the layout of your kitchen. Also, always consider getting cabinets that offer ample amount of storage. While features are not that big of a concern with cabinets, you may want to consider soft closing doors and drawers. And, always choose frameless kitchen cabinets that are made of PVC or MDF particle board. These are a more modern option to traditional framed wooden cabinets.
