May 13, 2022 : Choosing the Right Kitchen Cabinets for Your Home

Whether you’re remodeling your entire kitchen or simply making a few updates, selecting the right kitchen cabinets for your NJ home is essential. The cabinetry affects the overall look of the space, and it also plays a considerable role in the organization and function of your kitchen. If you choose the wrong cabinets, you’ll end up unhappy and could even spend more money correcting the mistake.

We know that puts a lot of pressure on you as a homeowner, but you don’t have to stress over making the wrong decision when you work with Magnolia Home Remodeling. We have several skilled home improvement contractors ready to walk you through the entire remodeling process—starting with the design!

That’s right—you can work closely with an interior designer to make the best selection for your taste and budget. In fact, we are happy to help you choose your ideal kitchen cabinets by guiding you through each step of the design phase, which includes:

  • Choosing Between Custom and Pre-Fab Cabinets
  • Picking a Color That You’ll Love 
  • Making the Most of Your Storage Space
  • Selecting from the Different Lighting Options

Custom vs. Pre-Fab Cabinets

Before you can move on to the fun part of picking colors, you need to decide whether you’re going to use custom cabinets or pre-fabricated kits. Your choice may largely depend on your budget; however, your timeline can also impact this decision. 

In general, custom kitchen/bathroom cabinets tend to be more expensive than their pre-fab counterparts. This is typically because they are entirely made to order with high-quality materials. If you have room in your budget to splurge on this part of your remodel, you’ll love that you can make the cabinets fit your exact style and storage needs.

We usually recommend pre-fab kits for customers completing their kitchen remodeling project on a budget. You don’t have to compromise on style, however. Many manufacturers offer a wide range of colors and designs. Best of all, these cabinets have much shorter lead times, so you can get your kitchen renovations done faster.  

Color Trends in 2022

When choosing a color, you have three options: you can pick something that is trendy, something classic, or simply a color you love—whether it’s “in style” or not. Though you can never go wrong with white or other neutral colors, we always love a good trend. This year, we’ve already noticed a few changes in the world of cabinet colors. The following are the 2022 color trends you can expect to see popping up in New Jersey kitchens: 

  • Earthy Green 
  • Yellow
  • Dark Colors Like Black & Navy Blue
  • Greige
  • Two-Tone
  • Natural Wood

It’s crucial that you don’t limit yourself, however. While these colors are in style now, they might not be next year, so it’s more important to choose a color you’ll be happy with for years. You might also need to consider other aspects of your home. For example, if you have an open floor plan, you won’t want your cabinet colors to clash with your living room flooring.

Maximizing Storage in Your Kitchen

Have you always wished you had more space to store your dishes? Do you struggle to keep everything neat and organized in your Jersey home? If so, this is the part of the design-build process where you’ll finally have the options to maximize your storage space through the layout and accessories. 

As part of our home improvement services, we aid you in choosing the ideal layout of your cabinets. This might include wall cabinets, a big, beautiful island, or built-in appliances. Our experienced designers can help you choose the proper cabinet layout to fit all your pots, pans, spices, utensils, and so much more.

That’s not all!

Kitchen cabinets are one of our most popular remodeling projects because homeowners want to be better organized. While new cabinets can give you more space, it’s the accessories that really make the difference. You can choose from a variety of practical storage solutions to keep your cabinets and drawers organized. In fact, we love to recommend partitions, roll-out trays, base cabinet inserts, utensil trays, plate organizers, and built-in wastebaskets.

Lighting Options Under Your Cabinets

The final part of choosing your cabinets is looking at your options for lighting. Our home improvement experts can provide you with insight into the different types of lights so that you can make an informed decision. The three most popular options include:

  • Light Bars: Our light bars are by far the most professional option. They provide you with ample, consistent light across all your cabinets, so you can easily see while you work in the kitchen. Best of all, you can operate all lights on one switch for convenience. 
  • Puck Lights: Homeowners looking for a fast and affordable alternative prefer the puck lights. This lighting style can usually be installed without a remodeling contractor, and it is a great way to provide drama and ambiance to your kitchen.
  • Tape Lights: The most affordable options come in the form of a strip or tape lights. Their low profile makes it easy for them to fit under your cabinets discreetly, and you can easily cut most of them to size to fit any kitchen.
