Many clients have a long list of items on their “to renovate” list. Kitchens are often the top of the list and take the biggest chunk out of the renovation budget. There are so many costly aspects to renovating a kitchen: appliances, plumbing, lighting, hardware, countertops, and, of course, cabinets, among many others.
Don’t Settle for Less. Here’s Why
With all the items on the list for a kitchen renovation, it may be tempting to conclude that the cabinets themselves don’t matter too much, as long as they are functional and can handle the weight of your pots, pans, stored food, and other items. When the budget is drawn up, and money begins to get spent, the quality of your cabinets may be “on the chopping block” as far as the budget is concerned.
Among MANY reasons not to “cheap out” with your cabinet choice is the fact that kitchens get messy. In many areas, such as near the sink, dishwasher, stovetop, oven (spills), fridge (if it has a water/ice dispenser) water and grease is going to splatter around.
The Quality of Your Cabinets Will Reveal Themselves Quickly
With budget cabinets from big box stories, water and grease splatters are going to show on the finish very prominently. And you will be constantly wiping them. And if the cabinet is a cheap, flat, ungrained surface of a single colour, even wiping them won’t help. The actual “wipe” will show. Think about this crucial point when you choose your cabinets.
Invest in Kitchen Cabinets You Will Be Proud Of
The kitchen is the heart of the home, to use and enjoy. If you are an avid cook or baker, a kitchen is going to be subject to a lot of wear and tear. If the above description sounds like you and your family, invest sufficiently in the kitchen. The cabinets, which can and should be an aesthetic feature unto themselves, should be a focus and be designated a worthwhile budget. Anything less will leave you frustrated in no time and want to replace them with a durable, attractive product. Spend your dollars wisely the first time. It will be money well spent.
