A custom kitchen remodel is so much more than getting new cabinets and countertops for your kitchen.  It’s paying attention to the details that will make the biggest difference in your overall satisfaction of your new kitchen.  When choosing cabinet interiors to the overall style and embellishments you add, it’s important to work with a cabinet company that employs professional kitchen designers.  They understand the importance of detail and how it will affect not just how your kitchen looks but how you and your family function in the kitchen.

Important Details to Take Note of

Kitchen Layout-  Certain kitchen layouts work better for different floor plans.  Other things to consider when choosing layout is who will be using the kitchen and how many cooks will there be at the same time. For example, a U-shaped kitchen works best for one cook. This also affects your kitchen workflow.

Cabinet Interiors – There are a variety of unique kitchen storage options for just about anything you can think of. From a hidden trash pull-out, rollout-shelving, to built-in utensil dividers. Your cabinet interiors should be considered when planning your kitchen work zones.

Cabinet Molding – Depending on your kitchen style you may or may not want to add cabinet molding.  In most kitchens it definitely gives the kitchen a finished look and in many cases can make an ordinary cabinet look like furniture.  Explore your kitchen cabinet molding options and discuss with your kitchen designer what will enhance the look of your kitchen and make the most sense.

Dimensions -  Many cabinet companies will put fillers in to make the cabinets fit the space you have.  You lose valuable storage.  At Brakur Custom Cabinetry we build the cabinet to fit the space you have.  Our kitchen designers will come to your home to measure the space so you maximize and take advantage of your different cabinet options and not lose storage. Getting accurate kitchen measurements will help you avoid common kitchen remodeling mistakes.

Installation and Planning -  It’s important to understand that there is a certain order in which most things need to happen in a kitchen remodel.  It would be impossible to have the flooring contractors in while your kitchen is installed.  Knowing how long certain tasks take and the order in which they should be done will help you plan better and avoid scheduling conflicts. Make sure you know what appliances you will be purchasing and let your designer know or they may not fit. 

Make your kitchen your own.  It is the uniqueness of a kitchen that will make it stand out. We recommend taking a look at current kitchen trends and choosing those that make the most sense.   There are lots of different ways you can add personality to your kitchen and make it stand out.
