3 tips choosing kitchen countertops cabinets

There’s no doubt that kitchen countertops and cabinetry make a huge statement for a home. When you are about to take on a project like kitchen remodeling in York, you will be looking for gorgeous countertops and cabinetry which fit your budget.

Kitchen countertops and cabinets that are outdated or old and scratched up bring down the aesthetic appeal of your home. Upgrading them can give you that final touch that’s needed to create a fabulous new interior design.

Your home is important to you, so don’t leave out the countertops and cabinetry when planning a kitchen remodeling project in York. Here are some tips to help you make the best decisions.

Check Out All Options For Countertops

Replacing your old countertops with the best option is sometimes difficult to figure out. There are so many materials to choose from in granite, marble, slate, concrete, stainless steel, butcher top, ceramic tile, soapstone, composite laminate, engineered stone, or the newest in contemporary laminates. You need the kitchen to brighten and liven the environment and bring up the home value.

It isn’t easy to find the right material for your kitchen countertops, especially once you realize how many choices you will be faced with. That’s why it’s important that you have help from a general contractor who assists you with a professional design consultation. This will help you choose the perfect countertop and cabinetry options for your unique home. There are many options including:

Consider Custom Cabinetry

Professional remodeling can give you a beautiful new kitchen that you’ll be proud of and love to work in. Every nook and cranny can be carefully planned with custom cabinetry which is designed according to the space requirements. Standard cabinets come in standard sizes with standard features, while custom cabinets are basically built to suit.

Whether you enjoy cooking or not, your personal goals and needs are of utmost importance because it’s your home. Why not change it to better suit what you are looking for?

There are favorites in kitchen cabinet materials for both standard cabinets and custom cabinets. Many of our customers fully enjoy the custom cabinet options because it’s easier to match their home design and architectural style. Yet standard cabinets can be beautiful as well even without all the extra craftsmanship that’s put into our custom cabinets.

Most commonly, customers choose wood as a predominant cabinet material. The favorite wood choices are red oak, white oak, hickory, cherry, pine, birch, and maple. With differing grain prominence and variations in color, you won’t have problems choosing your own favorites.

Laminates and Thermofoil are modern options used in kitchen remodeling projects. They are beautiful and durable. These cabinets are either pressure treated under high pressure or low pressure. The high-pressure laminate cabinets are heavier while the low pressure treated cabinets are lighter. Thermofoil cabinets replicate the look of wood and consists of a vinyl film applied to particleboard or plywood. These options are less expensive than real wood cabinets.

  • Red & White Oak
  • Maple
  • Hickory
  • Pecan
  • Cherry
  • Birch
  • Pine
  • Walnut
  • Laminate
  • Thermofoil
  • Wood Veneer
