Cabinets are a major detail in any kitchen. The right choice of cabinet will tie together the look of your kitchen, make it a pleasure to use and cook in, and set the tone for the rest of your home.

At Rod’s Kitchens, we’ve helped thousands of customers make their dream kitchen a reality. In this article, we want to set out for you some of the things that we look for in a good choice of cabinets for your kitchen. Read on below to find out what we think you should be looking for!

Start with the Front Panels 

A great first step is to look for the style of front panel that speaks to you. It might sound odd to begin with the aesthetics of your cabinets, but a front panel that compliments what you’re trying to achieve in your kitchen is usually something that you can make work with anything else you need from your cabinets.

Ask Yourself – What Do You Need from Your Storage?

We’ve mentioned it second, but in reality, storage is the first reason you’re building in kitchen cabinets in the first place. When looking for the right cabinets for your kitchen, you will want to make sure that you’re taking your storage needs into account.

If you have begun to accumulate a bit of a collection of pots, pans, utensils and kitchen appliances, you will want to ensure that you have plenty of storage space to accommodate those items. Plenty of storage space will give you what you need to keep everything neat and tidy, maintaining the order of your kitchen space.

Fittings and Function

Closely related to having plenty of storage is making sure that the cabinets you choose are going to function the way you want them to. Here, we’re talking about the hinges, runners and handles that make your cabinets a pleasure to use. 

At Rod’s Kitchens, we particularly love making use of soft-close drawer runners and hinges from Blum. These pieces are a great way to bring an unseen but satisfying touch to your choice of cabinetry.

The handles you choose are an important detail both for their aesthetics and their being the main point of contact between you and your cabinets. Find something that compliments the overall style of your cabinets, but don’t be afraid to experiment!

Consider your Choice of Material

We’ve left it to last, but materials are important. They are one of the biggest contributing factors to the overall feel and longevity of your choice of cabinetry. 

The good news is that you have more choices now than ever before. The newer generations of composite materials and laminates have come a long way, and these options are a cost-effective way to produce a striking look when paired with your choice of veneer.
