When remodeling your kitchen, install only the necessary cabinets so you can spend on quality rather than quantity. Look for durability and specify plywood panels instead of particleboard.
Laminates are economical, but still look elegant with a decorative finish or a wood trim. You should put money into the kitchen's hardest, most permanent features, especially cabinets and countertops.
There are two basic cabinet styles: European [frameless] and faceted cabinets. Can be ordered from custom or semi-custom cabinet manufacturers or stock suppliers. Each style has a variety of doors, wood and finish options.
Some cabinet hardware has a simulated finish or surface that looks and behaves like real. Brass-plated knobs can replace solid brass, while some plastic handles can mimic a solid surface.
Installing cabinets in a remodeled kitchen requires some basic finishing carpentry skills. Before starting any installation, it's a good idea to mark some horizontal and pipe guides on the wall so that everything is properly aligned. Most stock cabinet layouts do not fit perfectly into a given wall space, but cabinet manufacturers offer narrow fills to fill the gaps between cabinets.
The most effective way to get started is to use the closet, because if the base cabinet is already installed, they will block you. It's best to put the corner units in the first place, set them aside, and then move toward the center of the wall. You have more room to adjust.
If your budget is tight and you want to give your kitchen cabinet a new look, you can choose to re-face it, including replacement or veneer parts that are always visible. So the cabinet box – called the box – keeps its current layout but gets a new end of the board. Other components, such as drawer front panels and cabinet doors, can be completely replaced.
