Top 4 Things To Consider When Choosing New Kitchen Cabinets

A functional home starts with a functional kitchen. Indeed, being the powerhouse of your home, your kitchen deserves the utmost attention. 

Believe it or not, 81% of home remodeling in the United States involves kitchen renovation. Here at Huey Brown, we understand the need to invest in the best kitchen cabinets as they will improve your kitchen’s overall appearance and functionality.

Furthermore, kitchen cabinets will not only make kitchen chores more manageable, but they will also undoubtedly improve your home’s overall value.

However, we know choosing kitchen cabinets can be an absolute nightmare without professional guidance. Although we highly suggest visiting a local showroom to view the cabinets in person, we wanted to provide you with our Top 4 Things To Consider When Buying New Kitchen Cabinets.

Kitchen cabinets may look pretty similar to a layman. However, our professionals will effortlessly highlight massive differences between various units in terms of Quality, Cabinet Style, Storage Capabilities, and Types of Cabinets.


Kitchen cabinets are pretty expensive with most renovations ranging between $12,567 and 34,962. They come in different qualities, like every piece of home furniture. Since this is not something you would spend on annually, your choice for new kitchen cabinets should be able to stand the test of time.

Kitchen cabinets are prone to moisture, and choosing models made from solid hardwood rather than particleboards and MDF is a good idea. Besides, cabinetry quality will depend on the joints used, types of frames, and beams.

Choose models with dovetail joints, solid wood frames, and I-beams. From professional experience, low-quality cabinets will be costlier and more demanding in the long run.

Cabinet Style

Kitchen cabinets come in different styles. Therefore, when it comes to researching cabinet styles, many experts will advise you to go beyond color and design. Of course, kitchen cabinetry, furniture, and fixtures are all about personal inspirations. 

Typically, high end choices are between modern and traditional tastes, or a blend of classical and contemporary tastes. Kitchen cabinets can also complement or contrast your kitchen décor. At Huey Brown, we often advise our clients to consider custom-made cabinets for more unique style ideas.

Although the above information sounds simplistic, getting all the factors right can be challenging for non-professionals. However, you can determine what you want for your kitchen by going through the following professional inspirations.

Storage Capabilities

Whether you are in the market for a refrigerator or stove cabinet, the storage capacity of your preferred model is difficult to ignore. Kitchen cabinets come in handy in storing items and organizing your kitchenette.

Many stock cabinets have pull-out shelves, in-between rollouts, lazy Susans at the cabinet corners, and peg compartments to satisfy your need for storage and improve function. Your choice when it comes to storage will depend on what you will store and the quantities involved.

Type of Cabinets

Although this can be confusing, cabinet styles and types are different. So, when shopping for the best cabinetry, go for the types that suit your taste and budget. The three primary cabinet types include:

 • Stock Cabinets- Stock cabinets are prefabricated models that you will find on display. They range from between 12-60 inches wide and 30-36 inches tall, which is averagely the ideal measurement for your kitchen cabinets. And when you decide to go for these, you can consider framed or frameless models.

 • Semi-Custom Cabinets- The difference between stock and semi-custom cabinet models is that the former is preassembled and does not require corrections. On the other hand, the latter can accommodate modifications to meet the needs of the client. Changes may include coloration, additional pockets, or sizing.

 • Custom Cabinets- Finally, custom cabinets are for you if you want something specifically unique for your kitchen. The manufacturer, dealer, or technician will build these right inside your kitchen to meet your needs and specifications.
