Buying Cabinets

You have finally managed to save some extra cash. You want to invest it in your home so you choose to remodel the old kitchen because after all, your family makes you spend half the day there. It’s only fair that it at least looks good and that it’s a comfortable space for you to be in. When it comes to cabinets, you have a wide variety of options. There are so many local stores you can go to, and now there are plenty of online cabinet stores as well! It’s hard to decide but I always recommend looking up online stores first and then going to the local store to compare prices. You’ll see online shopping will save quite a few bucks! As if that’s not enough, you will also save A LOT of time.

While cabinets usually don’t fall out of brown or white, you wouldn’t believe the huge amount of shades available out there. Of course some businesses have more than others, but in general, it’s not an easy choice! Maybe you already know what color you are crazy about, but if it doesn’t match the style and wall colors of your kitchen then you should probably reconsider your choice. However, if you are really passionate about a particular color that doesn’t match the rest of your kitchen, maybe it would be a good idea to paint the walls or do any remodeling so that you can get what you want.

A good tip for choosing cabinets is getting two different colors. Sometimes contrasting the colors can make your kitchen look very fancy and modern. For instance, in the picture you can see that the bottom cabinets are all white but the top ones are dark brown. The combination certainly looks great!

If you take a deeper look, you’ll see that all the elements in the kitchen are truly congruent with one another! You’ve got the bottom white cabinets and the top dark brown ones. But then you've got the dark brown kitchen island and right next you have the white chairs at the dining table. It’s certainly a good flow!

Cabinets Online

Should you buy your new kitchen cabinets online or go to the local store? That’s the dilemma. Day a day, the number of people going for the online store is increasing. So why is that? Well first of all, it’s a lot cheaper. Most online stores sell RTA (ready to assemble) cabinets and that alone lowers the price; not to mention they save a lot of money from rent since they don’t have a physical store and those savings are passed on to their customers! But more than that, I have found a few advantages of buying cabinets online.

When you go to any store, regardless of what they are selling, they usually have most products in display but they have others in a warehouse or something like that and maybe that’s why you can’t find something you like. Often times I go to a store without finding anything I like, and then I go home and look at their online store and find so many more products! Plus it saves you a lot of time. You can go through an entire website in just a few minutes but going through every product inside a physical store would take hours! Not to mention you’ll have to be dealing with people and I personally don’t like crowded places and hate standing in line to check out.

Now let’s talk possible disadvantages. Of course most people would suggest that they don’t feel comfortable buying online because they don’t get to see the quality of the wood or the color, as often times colors look a lot different in the computer than they do in real life. However, most online cabinet stores offer free samples so their customers can see the material and the color.

Overall I think shopping for cabinets online is the new trend and if you haven’t done it yet, you should definitely try it out next time you are thinking of renewing your kitchen. You’ll be surprised by how much you’ll be able to save!

Redesigning the Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most popular rooms in a house when it comes to renovation. If you think about it, you’ll realize most people have never remodeled their bedrooms even though that’s where they spend most of their time in the house! Why do you think that is? My opinion is that it’s due to the fact that when we have visitors we usually offer them a drink or something and take them to the kitchen to see what they want. And everyone wants their house to look nice for the guests. It could also be because we prepare the food we eat in our kitchen so it’s highly important that everything is neat and clean and having a really old kitchen that still looks neat and clean is practically impossible without a few renovations.

In the old days rooms in a house used to be distinctively separated with walls and doors but now houses have become more like open spaces and kitchens are usually connected to another room so if that’s your case, you need to make sure that what you do in your kitchen matches the rest of your house. For example, imagine having that white kitchen with all cabinets painted in white and then a dark wood dining table and furniture with dark cabinets as well. The two things separately look great but together it’s just not a good match. So whenever you are remodeling your kitchen make sure what you’re doing will look good with the rest of the house. There are also some other considerations that you need to think about when you are planning on remodeling your kitchen. You can go to different pages to see cabinets’ colors that will match your kitchen.

Remodeling Your Kitchen

Alright so you are remodeling your kitchen and you’re very excited. You want it all: brand new kitchen cabinets, a new island, you name it. You look at different magazines and can’t wait to get that project started so you can have everything the magazine is suggesting. However, you need to take into account that your kitchen layout and space might not be the same as the one you see in the magazine. Not everything might go with your kitchen and at the end you might not like the outcome.

New kitchen island? Yes we all love them. They look great, however if your kitchen is not big enough then it might not be a good idea to get one. It’s just going to make it uncomfortable to walk around in the kitchen. For example, in the picture you can see that there’s a lot of space, it’s a big kitchen, so the island looks great. But small kitchens don’t need an island to leave them with even less space!

Another consideration you need to take into account is the height of the cabinets. If the person who is generally cooking isn’t that tall then you shouldn’t place the cabinets very high because it will be harder for them to reach and get any appliance they may need. That’s actually a problem that many women face on a daily basis. Looking at the bright side, they work out as they cook, talk about women’s ability to multitask!

Anyway, my point is that you are not only looking for a kitchen that looks fantastic, but one that is also functional and that agrees with the space and layout you already have. You want the kitchen to work with you and that it fits the needs of those who will be using it the most.

Design 1, 2, 3

If you are one of those people who want to remodel their kitchen and get new cabinets but you really have no idea how you want them to be like, then you’re not alone. I’m right there with you. Just a few months ago I was looking to replace my old cabinets since they were very old and didn’t look good anymore. However, I didn’t know if I wanted to keep my kitchen structured in the same way, with the same type of cabinets. So I thought if I could just look at several kitchens and cabinets maybe I’d have a better idea of what to buy.

Worked like a charm! I stumbled upon this online store called CabinetDIY and it was great. I immediately fell in love with the page! They offer such a wide variety of colors for your cabinets that there’s no way you won’t be pleased. But what I liked the most was their Design 1, 2, 3. It enables you to get personalized cabinets and decide what you want.

As the name suggests, there are three simple steps. First you have to provide the measurements you want for the furniture you want to acquire. The second step is called Style It and basically you have to select any of the pictures you want so they can get an idea of what your style is. Then they give you several options taking into consideration the results of the second step. In this final step you have to specify the appliance you want for your brand new kitchen and then you send that information over to them and they  will make the cabinet design and quotation based on that. After that you simply have to make the purchase and select your favorite color, which I think it’s a tough choice given the many beautiful colors they have.

Ready to Assemble Cabinets

There are several reasons someone would like to acquire kitchen cabinets. Maybe you are looking to put your house on sale and want to increase its value with a nicer kitchen, or maybe you just bought a new house and you need to buy the cabinets, or simply because you got tired of your old ones and want a new look for your kitchen. However, kitchen cabinets can be very expensive, and maybe your budget isn’t too high. A feasible solution, if that is your case, is to buy ready to assemble cabinets since it can save you a lot of money. Believe it or not ready to assemble kitchen cabinets can really cut the price in almost half! Imagine trying to sell a house with a kitchen like the one in the picture!

 Even if your house was alright, old kitchen cabinets could really hurt the number of offers you get and the price and that’s because the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in a house. That’s why a lot of people prefer renewing the kitchen and buying new cabinets because they know that will help them increase the value of their homes. And buying new cabinets doesn’t have to cost you a fortune if you get ready to assemble cabinets and decide to install them yourself.

Nowadays, with DIY projects getting more and more popular, ready to assemble cabinets seem to be the new trend when it comes to renewing the kitchen. There are several online stores that offer rta cabinets at a great price, you just need to look online and I’m sure you won’t regret it.

The kitchen is an important room in a house, especially for women who enjoy cooking. Everyone should be able to get a nice kitchen without emptying their bank accounts and thanks to the many stores who now offer rta cabinets, that’s now a possibility within your reach! 

Renewing Your Kitchen

As the years go by, our once lovely kitchen cabinets become old, dusty, and well…ugly. And as much as we would love to remodel our entire kitchen and buy brand new kitchen cabinets, that would require thousands of dollars that we are probably not willing to spend. But we have good news for you:  with a new, fresh coat of paint, your old cabinets will be looking as good as new!

The idea behind this is that cabinets are very long-lasting but the paint, on the other hand, isn’t. But then we should focus on fixing what the real problem is instead of going and buying completely new stuff. Now you might think that will be expensive as well, since you are going to have to hire a professional painting contractor so that it actually turns out ok, but don’t worry, you can turn this into a fun do-it-yourself project and get an awesome price!

The first thing you want to do is clean your cabinets really well because if they are dirty and dusty the paint will easily peel off and you are not going to obtain the fresh, new cabinet look you’ve been dying for. Once they are clean, you want to get a prime-sealer since that will leave a smooth uniform surface. After you apply it, you simply need to start the painting job! It’s amazing how the only thing you need for your cabinets to look brand new is paint!

There is no doubt that painting your cabinets yourself can save you a lot of money but that is not the only reason why you should do it. If you buy cabinets in a retail store, the color options are very limited, basically several shades of brown. The most extravagant a cabinet color gets is some kind of cherry shade and maybe you want to spice things up and get something a little different! Whatever the reason, painting your cabinets yourself is a great option!
