It’s very helpful to hire a designer to assist in the selection and decision making process. This professional will guide you from vision to reality.
Style vs. Need/Benefit
The designers at Braemar focus on style vs. need/benefit. The best type of cabinet adequately fulfills both requirements, and sometimes these two factors blend together. You may be wondering about the difference between style and need/benefit. When considering the style of your cabinets, think about colors, shape and general aesthetics. In contrast, when thinking about need/benefit, consider functionality, storage capacity and usage. Both are important but distinctive.
Before getting to the fun part of choosing the look of your cabinetry, consider the size and shape you need. Think about the layout of your existing kitchen, as well as cookware, dishes, gadgets and other items that will be stored in your cabinets. Also, take into consideration the size of your family and how often you will have guests over for entertainment purposes. All of this will contribute to the amount of cabinetry you will need. You’ll also need to think about storage. Cabinets on today’s market are extremely savvy when it comes to storage solutions. They offer pull-outs, sectional pieces, turntables and more. You can store more stuff in drawers and cabinets than ever before.
