It’s well-known that the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in any house. It’s not only where meals are prepared but also where countless conversations and interactions happen, and oftentimes it is one of the first rooms you see walking into a home. Of all the considerations that designing a kitchen brings, kitchen cabinets are one of the most crucial. Whether you’re having a home built or are thinking of updating your kitchen, here are three reasons why you want to be sure to get the cabinets right.
First, the function of cabinets is critical to the usability and efficiency of a kitchen. They are used on a daily basis and can make your (or your guests’) experience good or bad. The height, handles, placement, directions of the doors, and other aspects of them will all have an impact on the overall success of your kitchen.
Another importance of kitchen cabinets for your home is the aesthetic value they can bring. Because of the large amount of space they take up, visually they will have a great impact, whether good or bad. Drab cabinets can make a kitchen look boring and outdated, while the right design can bring the right aesthetic pop to the rest of the kitchen space.
Finally, the way you have the cabinets in your kitchen designed and built can have an impact on the value of your home. Kitchen remodels overall can yield upwards of 60% of their cost in added value to a home, and a large percentage of buyers shopping for a home will carefully consider the kitchen in making their decision.
Getting your kitchen cabinets right is so important to both improving your own experience at home and maximizing your profit and success in selling your home in the future. Considering their function, aesthetic, and value is a great starting place.
