Choosing cabinets can be a daunting task now that RTA cabinets provide so many choices and colors. It is important to think about what kitchens or bathrooms you have seen, including your current one, and the features you like and dislike. It is also good to search “cabinet ideas” online, and then look at the “images” results so you can get an idea of options out there. Choose colors and styles that are unique to you but add resale value to your space.
Once you have found pictures of cabinet configurations you like, choose your cabinet store and pick the configurations best suited for you, and how your routine will dictate your choices.
How does one do that? Read on to find out the top 5 considerations when choosing the type of cabinets you need…
Remember, cabinets, whether in the kitchen or bathroom, can last for as many years as you can tolerate your choices. The only time you will likely consider changing them is if you purchased a home with someone else’s choice, damage, whether by fire or flood, or you are simply a person who requires change every once in a while. So, let’s do it right, and consider the following 5 ideas:
Habit. What are your routine habits? When you reach for the toothpaste, hairbrush, or makeup, do you want drawers or doors? If you are in the kitchen, and you love to bake, are your cookie sheets and spices conveniently located next to your work surface? It is important that you consider how you wash or cook, so that you choose bathroom or kitchen cabinets that suit your routine.
Convenience. Do you like to have your cleaning supplies kept in the bathroom? Then a tall utility cabinet may be best. What about your pots and pans in the kitchen? Do you use a lot of skillets or small pots, then slide-out shelves may be the ticket. Or, maybe you love to make soups and have large pots that need to be stored conveniently close, then perhaps a deep drawer base is necessary. Think about how you like to cook, so that your kitchen works for you!
Preference. Can you bathroom accommodate a large two sink base, or would you rather only have one, but with lots of storage, for both of you? How about baking? Do you find you have a large roast and desserts needing an oven, but at two different temps? Then a large two-oven cabinet will be necessary to make your dreams come true. Imagine the control you’d have, all packed up in one neat tall oven cabinet. Yes, you can have your cake and eat it too!
Needs. Everyone needs to feel at home in their home, so choosing the right bathroom or kitchen cabinets is essential. Every bathroom has towels, so how to store them neatly, but with a creative flair? Maybe re-purpose a X-Wine Rack cabinet to store and display them? Perhaps you’re a member of a wine club, but don’t need an entire wine cellar, just a wine rack. Choosing a cabinet that matches your other cabinets and needs is the right choice for you.
Wants. In any room, since it is your space, maybe you just want the cabinets you want, not concerned whether convenient or a need. That’s okay, because you work hard to have what you want. So, think outside the box! Think about decorative legs for cabinet corners, or glass for the doors. How about spice drawers, or wine glass stem holders? Or, maybe you want to have a range hood, or great finish mouldings or aprons to hide your recessed lighting. Whatever you want, most RTA cabinets can accommodate those wants, and in the same color across the board with your cabinets. Nice!
So, whether you are choosing cabinets based on habits, convenience, preferences, needs, or wants, or all of the above, you have plenty of options with RTA or ready-to-assemble cabinets. Wide color selections, cabinet configurations for either bathroom or kitchen, and conveniently able to be ordered online and delivered to your door, assembled or unassembled, can be yours at the click of a button. That’s right! You can now make your dream kitchen or bathroom cabinets a reality while still in your pajamas. Now, go remodel.
