Q: When it comes to going in on kitchen cabinets, I know that it’s a big investment. How can I be sure to make the best decision?

Kitchen cabinets are singlehandedly going to make the most difference in the look of your home. There are a wide variety of styles, designs and materials available in new cabinets and cabinet doors.

Here are some tips that will help ensure you get the best out of your kitchen cabinets when you update.

  1. Make Sure to Measure: Before shopping, it’s important to take accurate measurements. This saves time and helps with planning. Be sure to measure the appliance areas to get a more accurate picture of the cost and how your kitchen will look.
  2. Stock Cabinets: Stock cabinets come in standard sizes. Some styles and color options are available, but are more limited than either semi-custom or custom cabinetry. Most consist of basic cabinet and drawer styles. Stock cabinets are often used in new construction and are the least expensive alternative.

Your lifestyle and the storage issues that are most pressing when making a choice.
