How to choose the right kitchen cabinets

01 July 2018

Cabinets can be the biggest expenditure in a full kitchen refit, accounting for up to 40% of the overall budget. Visually they need to be appealing and they need to function well, after all we spend around 31% of our time in the kitchen, that’s despite takeaways, meals out and kitchen gadgets to make our lives easier!

Choosing the right materials for your cabinets is hugely determined by your style and personality. Although you don’t have to go for one look, mixing styles and materials will make your kitchen different to everyone else’s. 

Here’s some things to consider when choosing your kitchen cabinets:

  • Narrow down your choices of cabinet doors to decide on a door profile, be it recessed, raised arch, square etc.  
  • Next decide on the style, this is when you should be checking out your local fitted interiors companies, where they can show you samples and you can look though the kitchen displays.  AK Fitted Interiors have showrooms across the Midlands with inspired displays and professional and friendly staff that are on hand to help and advise you.
  • Think about the colour and finish. If you’re not sure about the type of wood, then ask for some assistance from an experienced.
  • Take into account how you want your kitchen to function, for example, how many shelves are required in wall mounted cabinets, how many drawers do you want under the worktop.
  • Organisation is key, so think about how you use your space.  Could you make use of a larder cabinet or an island maybe? 
  • Make the most of the space you have. If your kitchen is on the small side, do you need to build up, making sure that cabinets go all the way to the ceiling. Consider attaching racks to the back of cabinet doors.
  • Combining inspired design, quality materials and traditional craftsmanship AK Fitted Interiors can supply and fit a range of kitchens that deliver superior aesthetics and effortless functionality.
