Kitchen Cabinet Tips to Remember
We know you’re excited to get started on your new kitchen cabinets – but before you dive in, keep in mind these tips to ensure your project is hassle-free, seamless, and checks off all of your needs and wants!
1. Consider your timeline
What’s does your timeline look like for your kitchen remodel or update? If you’re on a tight schedule, opting for an in-stock cabinet choice that can be taken home same day might be a smart choice for you. We recently added an in-stock selection of Smart Cabinetry products to accommodate homeowners and business owners who want a quick turnaround and stylish choices to select from. If you have more time to work with, custom kitchen cabinets will ensure that they are the perfect fit for your unique space and function. National Design Mart’s in-store designers are here to make sure your installation will be a good fit for your project timeline!

2. Plan for your space
It’s not just about knowing the height and width of the cabinets that will fit. Create a list of the features that are most important for your space. Will you be keeping the same layout, or could another layout work better for your kitchen? What features would allow you to get the most out of your space? If you want a pantry but don’t currently have the space, consider designing new cabinets with space for a built-in pantry or a lazy-susan corner cabinet that could accomidate this. If your kitchen is always busy but walking space is limited, consider if a different layout would make more sense. Our in-store designers create 3-D renderings for our customers using the dimensions of their space to begin planning the best layout, product choices, and more.

3. Stick to your budget
Create a budget that you can work with and stick to it. Pre-fab kitchen cabinet choices are budget-friendly and great looking. If your kitchen is a relatively standard layout, these could be a great option for your space, and your wallet! Plus, if you love the look of solid wood but don’t love the price tag, cabinet brands offer plenty of manufactured wood options to choose from. For larger budgets, there are so many ways you can customize your kitchen cabinets – from custom layouts and opting for all of the bells and whistles, to adding a kitchen island. Whether you have a modest amount set aside or have plans for a grandiose makeover, there are kitchen cabinet choices to accomidate every type of project!

These details shouldn’t be an afterthought – planning these will help you stick to your budget, coordinate your new look, and keep the process hassle-free.

Come up with a color scheme that you love or talk with our experts to make sure you get it right. From standard cabinet colors and finishes, to custom colors, mismatched designs, and more – there are plenty of ways to get creative with your new cabinets!
