This is the most important factor that you will need to put a lot of thought in. The main reason that we are renovating a kitchen is because we want to do things different in this kitchen than we have done in the past with our other kitchen. The question you need to ask is what I want different in this design. Take careful consideration in the placement of your appliance so they will work together and create a working triangle for you. Once you have an idea of the placement of your appliances then you can begin to layout a set of custom cabinets. After this is done you are well on your way to a great kitchen remodeling project.
You will need to decide on a material for your cabinets. Most of your cabinets are constructed from a type of hardwood. Oak, hickory, and poplar are very common choices. If you do not have any idea what you are looking for it is a good idea to visit your local cabinet showroom to see some of the displays of custom cabinets they have to offer. After you decide on the materials choice you will need to decide on the type of doors you will using in your kitchen cabinets.
Your countertops is also a very important choice when you are experiencing a kitchen remodel. In the late 70’s laminate countertops became a very popular choice because of the many colors laminated countertops were available. These laminated countertops were popular but they would not stand up to the wear and tear that a heavily used kitchen would offer it. At times the laminated tops could be cut and burned from the pots that were placed on top of the counters. Now there are countertops that are made from solid materials such as marble and granite that have become very popular. They are more expensive but they will last you a lifetime. You should probably consider using this more expensive choice because of the performance value they offer you.
