When considering adding custom kitchen cabinets to your home, there is so much excitement and opportunity ahead of you. But, before you can move forward with ordering your custom cabinets, there are a few things you should think about.

Going through each of these 7 ideas will help ensure you get everything you want and need when you place your custom kitchen cabinet order.

1. Current Cabinet Likes

What do you really like about your current cabinets? Take a few minutes to write out a list of features that you thoroughly enjoy about your cabinets and want to have in your future cabinets too. Make sure to note any features that you consider to be a must-have.

2. Current Cabinet Dislikes

On the other hand, what do you dislike about your current cabinets? Make another list that shows the problems you have with your cabinets so you can avoid them when choosing new ones. You may want to spend a few minutes in your kitchen opening up each cabinet and pulling out each drawer to really be thorough about your dislikes.

3. Amount of Storage

One crucial element of cabinets is the storage space. Do you have enough storage space, or do you need new cabinets to provide you more room for dishes, pots, pans, and more? Think about all of your kitchen gadgets that don’t fit in your current cabinets, or how you’re making things fit even when they really shouldn’t. Custom-made kitchen cabinets are an opportunity to add much-needed storage space. 

4. Organizational Elements

In addition to adding more storage, what are you looking for in terms of organizational elements? Consider what additions could make your kitchen cabinets more effective and efficient. Ideas to consider for your new kitchen cabinets include:

  • Pots and pans racks
  • Slide-out shelves
  • Horizontal baking sheet storage
  • Spice racks
  • Garbage and recycling bins
  • Wine storage
  • A lazy Susan
  • Bag hooks
  • Extra shelving

5. Available Space 

How much room do you have available for cabinets in your kitchen? Take all the necessary measurements to determine if you have room for more cabinets or just as many as you currently have in your kitchen. These measurements are so important, especially if you plan to purchase your cabinets online. It’s important for kitchen cabinets to fit perfectly; there’s rarely room for error.

6. Overall Vision for Your Custom Kitchen Cabinets

Once you have taken some time to consider what you like, dislike, want, and need in your future cabinets, think about the overall vision you have for cabinets. When you picture your new cabinets in your mind, what colors do you see? Are the doors and knobs a certain style? Keep this vision in mind when choosing cabinets. 

7. Budget

You can’t do any type of home improvement project without considering your budget. Before making any purchases or final decisions, figure out your budget for kitchen cabinets. Once you know how much you can afford to spend, you can make better choices pertaining to the style and amount of cabinets. You can also consider purchasing kitchen cabinets online wholesale to save money.
