How New Kitchen Cabinets Enhance the Entire Kitchen

How New Kitchen Cabinets Enhance the Entire Kitchen

Kitchen cabinets are the single, most important investment you can make for your kitchen, whether you’re doing a partial or full renovation project. It’s not just about looks. Upgrading your kitchen cabinets accomplishes the following:

·       Infuses a sense of newness


Don’t have the budget for a full kitchen renovation? Kitchen cabinets are such a dominant part of this room that they can transform its whole look—even if they’re the only upgrade you can have at the moment. Investing in gorgeous kitchen cabinets is an excellent way to refresh your kitchen’s aesthetics without overhauling the entire area.

·       Adds functionality and storage

Kitchen cabinets helps you stay organized and protects your valuables. Damaged cabinet interiors are less able to support the weight of your dishes, utensils, and food items. Perhaps your belongings don’t fit into your current cabinets anymore.

When you buy new kitchen cabinets, you naturally factor in how much storage space you need. This is your opportunity to set up a better flow inside the kitchen, where everything is within easy reach.

·       Raises home value

If you’re planning to put your property on the market, offering a remodeled kitchen to buyers is an excellent selling point. Beautiful, custom cabinets boost that value further.

Just by adding new kitchen cabinets alone, you can renovate your kitchen into a more usable, aesthetic space that works well for your lifestyle. At Choice Cabinets, you can find numerous resources to plan out the finer details of your kitchen cabinet makeover. Feel free to go over our guides for creating a renovation budget, tips on planning a kitchen renovation, cabinet care, and other selections at the Choice Library.

How to Select Your New Cabinets

How to Select Your New Cabinets

With so much depending on your new kitchen cabinets, you need to put a lot of careful thought in your selections. Choice Cabinets offers more than 50, 000 items in 150 assorted sizes at our warehouse, and we’re sure you’ll find kitchen cabinets you’ll fall in love with. To make that process easier, you consider a number of elements to guide your choice of kitchen cabinets.

Kitchen Cabinet Style

The existing style of your kitchen will influence your choice of kitchen cabinets. Not sure what style your kitchen currently has? Most kitchens follow three main styles:

1.     Traditional style

Cambridge kitchen cabinet style

This style features ornate accents, and loads of details and embellishments, plus raised panels. It evokes the warmth of a traditional kitchen by using classic French and English elements of design.


If you have a kitchen island, you can add a dash of sophistication by tying the look together with corbels and wainscoting. This design style is all about the extras— the perfect balance of extravagance and elegance.

2.     Contemporary / Modern Style

A total opposite of the traditional style, contemporary or modern kitchen cabinets make use of clean, sleek lines with a minimalist bent. Less is more: the absent elements make as much impact as the ones present.

For instance, contemporary cabinets generally don’t have frames. This reduces visual clutter, and facilitates the smooth flow of horizontal lines around the kitchen. This style also makes use of minimal cabinet hardware.

3.     Transitional Style

The transitional style marries design elements from the contemporary and traditional styles. Kitchen cabinets in this style exude a timeless and sophisticated aesthetic. This style goes well with a neutral palette and simple accent pieces, but also with a bit of flair such as corbels in strategic places.

Kitchen Cabinet Door Styles

When shopping for your new kitchen cabinets, you need to consider both the cabinet door treatments and the overlay, which work in conjunction with each other.

What are kitchen cabinet overlays?

Cabinet overlay refers to the amount of frame that shows through the doors. Sounds insignificant? They actually have a lot of impact on the final designs of kitchen cabinets:

·        Full Overlay

This overlay is primarily used to create a minimalist, sleek, and contemporary room through its “all door” looks that show none of the cabinet frame.

·        Partial Overlay

In this style, the cabinet frames are exposed from ½ inch or more. Partial overlays are responsible for giving kitchen cabinets a textured, layered, and classical appearance.

What are kitchen cabinet door treatments?

Kitchen cabinet door treatments are the doors themselves. As you explore different cabinet styles, you may encounter arches, squares, and cathedral doors styles. Other common cabinet door treatments are:

  • Center panel
  • Raised panel
  • Flat panel
  • Multi panel

If you’re not sure which kitchen cabinet doors appeal to you, our friendly representatives at Choice Cabinets will be more than happy to help. You can also browse through our website for a detailed description of our kitchen cabinets, including the style, overlay, door treatments, and color palettes.

Decorative Hardware for Kitchen Cabinets

Every little detail counts if you want kitchen cabinets with aesthetics that will look amazing for years to come. Just as important as the kitchen cabinet style and door treatments are the decorative hardware you’ll use to embellish your kitchen cabinets.

Choice Cabinets offers a wide range of drawer fronts such as knobs pulls and handles to complement our outstanding kitchen cabinets. We apply the same level craftsmanship for these decorative elements— each one is built with precision, and versatile enough to fit the largest drawer to the smallest cabinet.

Kitchen Cabinet Storage Styles

The ideal kitchen cabinet should marry looks and function. This means it should also come with first-rate storage and organizational design.

Choice Cabinet can customize our kitchen cabinets to deliver the type of storage your envision. Choose among the following space-saving features:

  • Base Pantry Pull-Out
  • Roll-Out Trays
  • Cabinet Divider
  • Wooden Divider
  • Lazy Susan
  • Trash Pull-out
