There are so many kitchen cabinet choices in terms of styles, patterns, colors, features (self closing drawers for example), and construction styles that making a good choice can seem daunting.
I generally find the best place to start is budget. Cost is always a deciding factor and by defining the most you can spend, you’ll narrow down your choices right away.
Whether you’re working with a designer to whom you’re paying a consulting fee, or using the design services of a cabinet show room, a designer can help you narrow your choices. Bear in mind that good design is not about having it all, it’s about narrowing your choices to sufficiently few that the decision becomes manageable.
Once you’ve made your selection, you need to ensure the people who install your stuff really know their stuff.
The best way to do this is to a) do not rush into a project as important as a kitchen remodel, and b) check the references and online reputation of the contractor who is doing the installation.
Not only do you have a selection process for your cabinets, you have an equally important selection process for your contractor.
Spending time and effort upfront helps ensure a smooth remodel. It’s an example of the old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
