Whether you’re beginning a
Bay Area home remodeling project or building a brand new home from scratch, one of the most important
rooms to consider is the kitchen. Getting your kitchen cabinets and countertops
just right will go a long way toward setting the tone and functionality
of the room. Here are a few tips for matching the two:
Consider Existing Home Décor
If you’re looking at cabinets and countertops as part of a home remodeling
project, you’ll want to consider the overall tone and décor
of the rest of your home. If your entire home has a rustic vibe, then
you probably don’t want to put in ebony cabinets with stainless
countertops…unless you’ll be totally transforming the rest
of your home as well.
Factor in Your Lifestyle
Families with children at home usually need their kitchens to function
in a much different way than singles or retired couples with grown children.
If you want your children to be able to retrieve certain items such as
drinking cups and snacks, then you’ll want to make sure
your cabinets allow them to do so safely, without the need for climbing.
Additionally, the materials that you choose should be sturdy and forgiving,
and not prone to staining in a young family situation. If you try to design
your kitchen against your lifestyle, you’ll only end up hating it
in the long run. Of course, if you have no special needs in your kitchen,
then by all means go for whatever you think looks good!
Don’t Overlook Your Budget
Your budget should actually be one of your first considerations. Pre-fabricated,
unfinished cabinetry is usually the most budget-friendly while custom
designs can become quite expensive. Laminate countertops are much less
expensive than quartz material countertops, and you can get them in virtually
any pattern. On the other hand, granite and other natural stones will
outlast laminate by quite a good many years, so take all this into consideration
before making a decision.
