Take a look at your kitchen cabinets. Are they looking a little dated? Or are they looking a little worse for wear? Or do you just not have the style or the space you want in your kitchen? It might be time to upgrade your cabinets. While you can invest in a whole kitchen remodel to knock down walls and change the layout, just upgrading the cabinets can make a dramatic change to the way your kitchen looks, as well as its functionality.
Not sure? Here are five reasons why you should upgrade your kitchen cabinets now:
In the majority of cases, the cabinets that the home builder installs are made of very low-quality materials. They are chosen to save the builder as much money as possible so as to maximize profits. They won’t include a lot of design features, and they will usually start to fail in just five years.
When you get custom cabinets, you are investing in high-quality materials and craftsmanship. Not only will your cabinets look a lot better, but they will also last you many more years.
Get All the Bells and Whistles You Want
When you shop for ready-to-install cabinets, you are limited to what the manufacturer has already designed and created. You may have a lot of options for finishes, hardware, and other features, but you are still limited to what is being offered. If you have a request that’s outside the box, you are unlikely to be able to find what you want.
By getting your cabinets from a custom designer instead, you can get exactly what you want in your cabinets. You can get the perfect combination of finish, hardware, functionality, sizing, and more. You don’t have to cross your fingers and hope for the best, nor do you have to make any compromises. Your cabinets can be built just as you dream them (so long as your budget allows it).
Update to Current Trends
Your home may have been built decades ago, but that doesn’t mean it has to look like it. You can update your home’s features so that it is current with the latest trends, and that goes for your kitchen cabinets, as well.
Custom cabinet makers can advise you on what’s hot right now in the world of kitchen décor and cabinet styles. If you have your finger on the pulse, you can bring your own trendy design to a custom cabinet maker and have it brought to life, with your own twist on it, of course.
Change the Configuration of Your Kitchen
One of the top reasons that many people want to remodel their kitchens is that they want to change the way the kitchen is configured. They might feel that the arrangement is too cramped, or they might want to get more storage. Besides knocking down a wall or two, one way to change the layout is to update the cabinets.
A custom kitchen cabinet builder can create cabinets to your unique size and shape specifications. You are not limited to the standard sizing. You can fill every space in your kitchen exactly as you see fit, ensuring that there is no wasted space and that you are getting the functionality and storage that fits your needs.
Increase Your Home’s Value
An updated kitchen will easily add thousands of dollars to the value of your home. But a custom kitchen remodel will do even more. Anything that is custom is seen as a luxury item, so that will increase the appeal and the value of your home. Plus, by having custom kitchen cabinets, you will offer unique styling or features to potential buyers, which will increase the value of your home.
You don’t need to be planning to sell your house to want to increase its value. It’s always a good idea to have more equity in your home to tap into when you need it, and increasing your home’s value is one way to increase your equity.
