Are you getting ready to shop for new kitchen cabinets? You may be surprised to find that there is an abundance of cabinet styles and colors available on the market, from white shaker cabinets to gray RTA (ready to assemble) cabinets or frameless to face-framed styles. Whether you are getting kitchen cabinets for your new home or doing a kitchen upgrade, you don’t have to sacrifice function for style. You can have both in a range of cabinets. But, how do you choose the perfect kitchen cabinets? Here are some key tips that you can apply to make the task much easier.
Keep Kitchen Style In Mind 
Remember that cohesion can really bring a space together, and as such, it’s important to consider the style of your kitchen when choosing kitchen cabinets. While you can always add your own sense of style or personality to space, you can never go wrong by making your kitchen cabinets complement the kitchen style, be it modern or traditional. Keep in mind all the other parts of the kitchen, including the available space, appliance, countertop, fixtures, and furniture. Your chosen cabinet should complement the overall look and feel of your kitchen, even if it doesn’t all match. At the end of the day, you want cabinets that will create the most appealing kitchen appearance.

Consider the Kitchen Cabinet Material 
Kitchen cabinets are made from a variety of materials, including metal, wood, stainless steel, MDF(medium-density fiberboard), plywood, laminate, veneer, thermofoil, and melamine. One of the most popular cabinet materials is still solid wood. It’s a classic and a favorite, perhaps because it’s wood through and through. Get to know the pros and cons of each cabinet material in order to make the best choice for your specific need.

Select the Right Design 
Ideally, the design of your kitchen cabinets should jibe with the appearance of your kitchen space. When it comes to layout, styles, and door colors, there are numerous possibilities. If you are interested in only a few styles, like contemporary and traditional, you can narrow your preference. Shaker style cabinets, for example, are popular, classic and versatile, and are available in a wide range of colors that can help you to convey your personal style. No matter if you are looking for a design that is fresh and modern or vintage and old world in design, there are plenty of options on the market.

Think of Function and Aesthetics 
Once you’ve narrowed your selection based on design, it’s time to think about functionality while keeping aesthetics in mind. Maybe you’re interested in kitchen cabinets that will help you to maximize space. For example, a pull-out rack cabinet can allow the space for your prized seasonings, removing the clutter from your kitchen countertop. If you prefer more drawers instead of shelves beneath your countertops, wire racks for dishes, or silent-closing drawers or doors, functionality is a key factor when choosing the perfect kitchen cabinets. You can have both function and beauty in your cabinets combining functional features and decorative elements. For example, your quiet-close cabinet doors may have decorative accents, like embellished handles or glass doors. You don’t have to neglect beauty for function.

There is a wide range of kitchen cabinets out there and it can be challenging making up your mind about the type you really want. Make sure to choose wisely and consider the tips above!
