So, one of your resolutions in 2018 is to finally remodel your kitchen. Cabinetry will be a big part of your renovation so here are some recommendations for how to get the right cabinetry.

Choosing Cabinets for Your Renovation in 2018 1

  1. Cabinet Design is Most Important –Finding a good kitchen designer and installer is the most important part of cabinet shopping because they can make any cabinetry you purchase look beautiful and provide the function you need.  Most designers work with experienced cabinet installers and have cabinet options at a wide range of price points, so they will help you stay on trend and on budget with your cabinet selection.
  2. Trends in 2018 – Transitional style cabinetry is the most popular and practical option today here in Basking Ridge because it is in-between contemporary and traditional.  This means going clean and simple with your door style and trim, usually shaker with maybe a little bead or small edge detail right for any style home.  White or gray is still trending for kitchens usually with a different, usually darker, color painted or stained island.
  3. To Refinish or to Buy New? – Refinishing cabinets is an option if you love the layout of your kitchen, you have ample storage, style of the doors is not dated and your cabinets are in excellent condition (will last another 10 yrs.).  You will save about 50% to have your cabinets refinished professionally instead of buying new.  It’s still a major investment, especially after you buy new countertops, backsplash and appliances to fit, so you want it to stand the test of time just as if you were buying new cabinets.
