Choosing the right kitchen cabinets for you
With so many options available in the market, choosing cabinets for your kitchen can be an overwhelming experience and if not being done after a lot of thinking, you might end up with the kitchen cabinets you never really wanted. If we leave aesthetics aside for a moment, there are lots of factors that might not be readily apparent that will impact the cabinet’s performance and prices. Understanding those factors will give you an advantage in making the right selection, as many of our happy customers who own homes in Los Angeles did.
In general, we can say that there are three basic structural components to a kitchen cabinet in Los Angeles: the cabinet’s box, the cabinet’s shelves and the cabinet’s drawers. Each can be constructed in a number of ways to suit one’s needs. Cabinets generally come four ways: boxed and ready to install, boxed and ready to assemble, semi-custom and custom made cabinets (Which is one of our specialties here at BKB Kitchens).
What color should I choose?
The reason we decided to start with colors, is that it seems like the first dilemma home owners in Los Angeles dealing with when remodeling or renew the kitchen. Since the color of the cabinets, the design, the spacing, and style of kitchen cabinets you are about to choose will dramatically affect the look and feel of one of the most important sections of you Rhome.
Our days, the kitchens are serving more functions for American families than ever and not once they are the center of the house. As such, a well-designed and welcoming kitchen will feel even more comfortable when it maintains the flow of the home, and invites the eye with appealing cabinetry and coordinated countertops.
But as we like to say, the contractor/Architect can only give you an opinion. The rest is up to you. Different people like different things. And what might work for a new kitchen in Los Angeles, might not necessarily work for a kitchen in LA. So take advices you take and consider them. But at the end, you are the one who will need to live in the house, and you will need to see the results every day. We at BKB Kitchens, tell all customers in Los Angeles: It is your home, you will choose and we will make you it real.
But the cabinets colors isn’t everything. There are few more things to consider and to give some thoughts when choosing a new kitchen in Los Angeles.
How much cabinet storage space do I need in the kitchen?
The answer is somehow tricky, but we will do our best to answer: The more square footage of storage you have the more you can tuck away things like handheld appliances, which allows you to free-up counter space. Keep on mind that there are items that will not fit into the standard/average kitchen cabinet and that might require some more space.
Should I go with the light or with the dark cabinet style?
The majority of kitchen cabinets that can be found in homes around Los Angeles constructed of hardwood come in maple, oak, and cherry. These can be painted or stained in a wide range of colors. As we said earlier in our article, different people like different things. And during so many years in the construction business we supplied a variety of kitchen cabinets from different materials and different color. So there isn’t really one general answer to the question. The best thing will be to schedule consultation appointment with a local contractor near Los Angeles who can help you make the right decision. The experts of BKB Kitchens & Los Angeles CA will be happy to meet with you and to help you with the knowledge acquired during many years in the field.
Note: A professional interior designer such as one of the designers work at BKB Kitchens & Los Angeles CA can help you make the right choices, so that everything about your kitchen cabinets will be just the way you imagined them.
The budget for the new kitchen
Yes, we saved the best for the end. This is where many home owners in Los Angeles California make mistakes. We divide them into 2: The home owners who spend more than they should have. And the homeowners who choose the cheapest option trying to save money. As we explained, the cheapest option or the cheapest bid is not always the best option in terms of return for the money you put into a construction project (And it doesn’t matter if it is roofing project in Los Angeles or kitchen installation in LA).
Renovating the house is not an easy process, but it is also a time for change and new things. There is no reason home owner that planned to spend $3,000 will end up spending double than that. Check and research, compare and ask around, and make sure you are getting what you expected. Remember, you will see this kitchen almost every day for the next 20-50 years. There is no reason why you shouldn’t smile every time you see it.
Reface the kitchen cabinets
For kitchen cabinet fronts made of material that cannot be painted or stained, some home owners near Los Angeles consider refacing instead of replacing the cabinets and install new. The process also known as resurfacing, which involves keeping the existing cabinet framework and replacing all the cabinet’s doors, drawer fronts and side panels with new ones. Refacing the kitchen’s cabinets is an option that offer few advantages:
- It is a relatedly simpler solution. That can be great for people who do not wish to invest “too much”.
- It can save time and the hassle that complete cabinets replacement involve.
- There is no need to obtain permits. The same cabinets remain.
- It will probably save you A LOT of money.
- You can choose the new cabinet’s doors color and design.
- It can be applied to ALMOST every kitchen cabinet.
- It can be combined with additional cabinets’ installment.
As you can see, there are many advantages to cabinet refacing, and a professional kitchen contractor with good hands can make the old cabinets look as if you just replaced all of them once he complete the process of kitchen cabinets refacing.
