5 Mistakes to Avoid
When Designing Your Dream Kitchen
Use These Techniques to Optimize Your Cabinetry Design, Even if You Don't Know Where to Start!
#2 Settling for inferior quality products.
I know, I know, Kitchens are expensive! But one of the worst mistakes homeowners can make is using low quality cabinetry that doesn’t last.
There is nothing worse than dreaming, planning, and executing the perfect kitchen renovation only to have your new kitchen fall apart after a few years. When for a fraction more you can use high quality materials that will last and save you money in the long run. By using things like pre-finished plywood cabinet boxes, dovetailed wood drawers, superior slides and hinges and real wood doors, you are setting yourself up for success and a long-term solution. Pair it with a fabulous design and your kitchen can last you 30+ years. The low price, big box store style kitchens can be alluring but those immediate savings will quickly become added costs when you are forced to repair, refinish or even replace them in the not-so-distant future. Although cabinetry is one of the bigger budget items in your kitchen renovation, there are also the costs of electrical, plumbing, countertops, tile, flooring etc. If your low-quality kitchen needs replacing after a few short years, you’ll be stuck paying for those items all over again as well.
