6 Tips to Consider When Selecting Kitchen Cabinet Design

Posted on
Oct 11, 2023

Buying a residential property is a significant personal and financial goal, but it is only when we focus on interior design that we can truly transform the house into a home. One of the most important parts of any home is the kitchen, as it is equally important to have both functionality and aesthetics in this space.

So, here are six tips to help you make the best choices for your kitchen cabinets.

  1. Fall in line with the theme – Cabinets often take up the greatest visible surface area in the kitchen. Picking a material and design that will complement the rest of the theme is important. For example, picking pastels or pretty printed designs for your kitchen cabinets may be a good idea if you have an English cottage theme. In this case, your choice will also determine the material of the cabinets. HDHMR and PVC boards may offer much more variety, but if your kitchen has a rustic theme, you can choose stained wood cabinets with brass handles.
  2. Layout and storage – The kitchen cabinet design is much more than the material used and the finished look. The functionality of your kitchen cabinets is one of the most important considerations when picking the style, size, and layout. Apart from the right proportion of drawers and doors, you may want to look for added storage space to help put away the kitchen appliances, giving your counters a clean, minimalistic look. At the same time, you may also want to add some open shelves for your cookbooks or plants.
  3. Light and space – One of the main challenges homeowners in major cities face is a lack of space and natural light. This is particularly true of kitchens. So, if your flat or apartment has a small kitchen, you may want to consider using the kitchen cabinet design to optimise space and light. Using high-gloss laminates or acrylic boards for the cabinets opens up the kitchen, creating the illusion of space. The highly reflective surfaces also optimise the available light and make your kitchen a brightly lit area.
  4. Factor in the backsplash – One of the most important yet underrated design elements in the kitchen is the backsplash. The area behind the stove, fob, or sink attracts attention in any kitchen. The kitchen cabinets must offer a contrast to the backsplash tiles or complement the design here. For example, you may choose solid-coloured kitchen cabinets if the backsplash is floral. Alternatively, you can choose the cabinet in a different shade of the same colour as the backsplash tiles.
  5. Fixtures and finishes – Contemporary kitchens come in several different designs. So, you can choose from drawers and doors with handles, soft-closing hinges, or push-to-open drawers. Your cabinet design will depend on your comfort and choice. These will determine the aesthetics and functionality of the cabinets. The internal designs, such as partitions, wire ware, bins, etc., will also depend on your kitchen needs and the kind of utensils, cutlery, and cookware you use.
  6. Budgetary consideration – When it comes to renovating a home, budget is often the top priority for most homeowners. However, with the abundance of versatile interior design options available these days, those looking to revamp their kitchen have a plethora of choices to choose from. That is why we have listed budget considerations at the end of this list. Choosing between wood finish laminate and reclaimed wood, stainless steel and acrylic, PVC, and high-resistance thermoform finish often depends on your budgetary allocation.

Modular kitchens vs. customised kitchens

Over the past few years, modular kitchens that are pre-designed and easy to install have gained significant popularity in India. These kitchens are both appealing and affordable. However, despite their advantages, many homeowners still prefer customised kitchens that are tailored to meet the specific needs and working styles of their family members. Ultimately, the choice between a pre-designed or customised kitchen is a very personal one. The kitchen cabinet design, material, and style are some of the important factors homeowners consider when choosing between modular and customised kitchens. If you are not sure or are confused about the best choice for your kitchen, it is a good idea to consult a professional interior designer before investing.
