Because kitchen cabinets aren’t typically removed as part of the process of moving out of a home, and are installed in the construction of a new home, it’s easy to think of them as a part of the house itself, like the floors or walls. When it comes time to replace them as part of a kitchen remodel, whether to prepare a house for sale or simply to get greater enjoyment out of it, a slightly different truth emerges: kitchen cabinets are décor; they’re furniture, albeit furniture that’s bolted to the walls and thus quite difficult to move or replace.
What Style of Kitchen Décor Do You Want?
Once you start to think of kitchen cabinets as furniture, as part of a kitchen remodel, options start to become available. It’s possible, by changing the décor of your kitchen on such a fundamental level, to alter the style of the kitchen and, in turn the whole house, more dramatically than can be done with ordinary furniture. When combined with new wall treatments, flooring, lighting, and surrounding furniture, dramatic changes in the look and feel of the kitchen and home can be achieved. Thus, it’s important to start to consider what kind of décor, what look and feel, you desire for your kitchen.
Cabinet Styles to Fit Nearly Any Décor
RTA Cabinet Store carries a large variety of ready-to-assemble kitchen cabinets for a reason. At first it might seem silly that we have dozens of white cabinets, for example, but just as when choosing paint colors for walls, when you start to get serious about choosing cabinets, you’ll quickly find that things like undertones and luster can have a big effect on the overall look and feel of a kitchen.
For example, a matte white with warm undertones and a simple structural style such as Shaker, might feel rustic and relaxed, like a farmhouse kitchen or a whitewashed picket fence. Combine the same simplistic structure with a cool, glossy white, and suddenly it feels futuristic, sleek and modern, and the space fills with light and an airy feel. Keep the glossy, cool white and shift to a pillow-style or other more intricately detailed structure and the feel shifts again to fancy and elegant, like a white-tie affair.
