Choosing the perfect cabinetry

Cabinetry is a foundational piece of design. From style to the finish, it defines your space and helps you achieve the aesthetic you wish to bring your vision to life. The cabinets you choose help anchor the design because in many ways they are at the core of the design, and many design choices are made around them. Cabinetry establishes the style and lays the groundwork for the rest of the space. When it comes to choosing the cabinetry, remember that it’s a significant portion of your renovation budget, so it should be the exact finish and style that you love and imagine in your home. Since so many design decisions are made around the choice, it’s important to think about your personal aesthetic, and how much of that you wish to incorporate in your space. Take a look at the cabinetry trends of 2023.

To choose the right color for your cabinetry consider the style of the space and other elements such as fixtures, counters, and furniture.

However, in kitchen design specifically, it’s important to consider whether you want your upper, lower, and island cabinetry to all be the same color or create contrast with two different colors.
