You’ve decided that you’re ready to remodel your kitchen or bathroom. Whether you plan to remodel either room in one shot or over the course of a few years, you recognize that it is important to first start with the cabinetry. Once the cabinetry is installed, replacing and remodeling everything else becomes a whole lot easier.

With all that in mind, you feel fairly confident that you’re ready to go through with the remodeling, but you’re still stuck on one important point: how do you choose the ideal style of cabinetry for your bathroom or kitchen?

Research the Overall Look

The best thing that you can do to make choosing the right cabinetry easy is to do your research. Get to know all the different door styles and wood species commonly used for kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. By knowing that information, you’ll be able to get a better idea as to how your kitchen or bathroom will look when the remodel is complete.

In addition, read up on what kinds of cabinets are used in each room. Are you better off with deep cabinets in your kitchen or bathroom? What kinds of cabinets are ideal for your needs? The more you know about the cabinetry options available, the easier your decision will be to make.

Color Scheme

What type of cabinetry goes best with the color schemes you had in mind for your kitchen or bathroom? Will you need to stain your wood cabinets, or paint them? By having an idea as to which color schemes you prefer most for your kitchen or bathroom, you’ll be able to choose cabinetry that’s just right for your remodel.

Wood Species

Each wood species has its own nuances that lead it to be better suited for a particular look and style. From the hardness to the texture and tone, you’ll want to consider the various differences in each wood species, as well as which one is best for the look you’re going for in your dream kitchen or bathroom.

Door Styles

From arch to shaker to square, there are a variety of different door styles to consider when shopping for cabinetry. The door style you choose will likely influence the look of the rest of the kitchen. Get to know which door styles are available to you, and then choose the ones you like best. Once you do that, you’ll be able to narrow down your choices regarding which cabinet style is right for your needs.


Lastly, your budget is definitely an important factor to consider. If you are working with a limited budget, you may want to consider first upgrading your cabinetry, and then remodeling everything else down the road. The reason is simple: it’s best not to cut corners on your cabinets. Cabinetry is often considered the cornerstone of your kitchen and bathroom, and skimping on them when remodeling could prevent your kitchen or bathroom remodel from being a total success.
