If you’re looking to give your Toronto or Mississauga a facelift, nothing quite does the job like new kitchen cabinets. Kitchen cabinets are a prominent feature in kitchens across the GTA and the style you choose will have a huge impact on the overall appearance of your kitchen.
When you speak with one of the experts at Kitchen and Bath about cabinets for your kitchen, you may be struck by the wide array of choices that you will have. While it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the selection, be assured that the folks and Kitchen and Bath are experts in design and we will help you through each stage of the process to help you realize your dream kitchen.
Let’s have a look at some of the options you will have when selecting kitchen cabinets:
Stock vs. Custom Cabinets
The term stock cabinets is a bit of a misnomer because to some it might imply pre-made cabinets that are ready to be picked up in a store or delivered from a warehouse. While these cabinets are pre-manufactured, you’ll still have to put your order in and specify your requests such as material, finish, style etc. Stock cabinets come in standard sizes to fit into modular designs.
Custom cabinets on the other hand can have virtually limitless possibilities and are constructed to precise specifications as determined by the homeowner and their designer. This makes them ideal for kitchens with unusual shapes and dimensions and fitting into awkward corners or for homeowners who wish to have non-standard sizes such as extra-wide etc. At Kitchen and Bath, we specialize in custom cabinets because we believe that you deserve to get exactly the kitchen you’ve always dreamed of.
Depending on your tastes and budget, kitchen cabinets are available in a wide assortment of materials from melamine to a variety of hardwoods such as oak, maple and cherry. Each material has its own distinct “personality” and will give your kitchen a different feel.
Darker woods for example such as cherry and walnut, often convey a more formal feeling to a kitchen, whereas a lighter wood such as maple might give it a more casual or rustic feel. Melamine cabinets on the other hand give a more modern or efficient appearance.
Many homeowners in Toronto and Mississauga who choose wooden cabinets choose to have them stained to retain the natural wood look. But if colour is your thing, then paint is also a possibility. If you love the vibrancy that pop of colour can bring to a room, then perhaps a teal or red may do the trick. Lighter colours such as pale greens or yellow go great with a country themed kitchen while black and white are ideal choices for modern décor.
The final consideration for your kitchen cabinets will be the hardware which is the handles on cabinet doors and knobs on drawers. Again the possibilities here are virtually endless.
While some homeowners may choose to do the installation themselves, we only recommend this if you are experienced in this type of home renovation. At Kitchen and Bath, we offer expert installation in order to ensure that you are pleased with the final results.
