In your kitchen, your cabinets are much more than just a location where you can store your food and your other kitchen utensils. Your cabinets also play a significant role in the function and look of your kitchen. Are your kitchen cabinets both great looking and functional? If not, it may be time to consider an upgrade.
Some of the signs you should consider kitchen cabinet upgrades can be found here.
If you have your just made casserole in one hand, a can of coke in the other, how easy is it to open and close your cabinet doors if you need a spoon, plate or something else? If you find this to be a struggle and your cabinets aren’t able to pass the “full hands test,” then you may not have cabinets that are fully functional. When your cabinets are in good condition, you should have no problem opening and closing them with ease. This may only require you to install new hardware, or update the door style you have. In some cases, you may need to install completely new cabinets.
Do you feel like you are always having to clean the kitchen cabinets? While regular cleaning is a normal thing, the need to clean the cabinets all the time is not. If you are cleaning this way, then it may be time to upgrade them. For example, stainless steel lined doors may be great when you first move in, but if you now have kids, the fingerprints may be an absolute nightmare. In this case, upgrading to custom, treated wood cabinets will be the best option and minimize how much you have to clean the surface.
You should never have to store items that should being inside your cabinets on the countertop. If you do, you may have an issue on your hands. A factor that many people overlook is that you can have custom cabinets installed in your home, which means that you won’t be limited to the traditional sizing configurations. With the custom cabinets you can change the width, depth and height of the cabinet based on your needs to make sure you have plenty of space to store all of your kitchen essentials.
If you have considered the factors above and decided it is time to upgrade your cabinets, then you should consider all of the options that are available. In many cases, custom cabinets will be the option that best suit your needs.
