How to Choose Cabinets
CABINET INSTALLERS REVEAL: HOW TO CHOOSE NEW KITCHEN CABINETS
New kitchen cabinets are the centerpiece of any kitchen remodeling project and usually represent 40 percent of the entire project budget.
So you want to get it right, and be happy with the price tag and the look and feel of the cabinetry.
As professional cabinet installers, Mr. Handyman is an expert at hanging custom cabinetry according to plans, and the same applies to semi-custom cabinetry or stock cabinets.
One thing we can recommend to homeowners is first making sure that your architect or designer can’t design the space to accommodate pre-fab cabinets. If you find quality semi-custom or stock cabinets, then it could potentially be just a matter of pencil, eraser, a quarter-inch here and a quarter-inch there to fit them nicely into your kitchen, saving you thousands of dollars you could spend elsewhere on your remodel or put right back in the bank.
No matter if custom or stock, and regardless of styling, we recommend buying cabinets that come with at least a five-year warranty.
The cabinets’ hardware goes a long way in providing the new look you’re going for, and unfortunately these range in quality—shop for and inspect them carefully. Buy or ask for samples. How do they look in real life? How do they feel in your hand? Do the handles, knobs and hinges look as good as they did online or in the catalog? And do they feel like they could hold up to real-life, kitchen-grade wear and tear?
No matter what you end up bringing into your home, we make installations that are guaranteed. Our employee contractors average 15 years of experience in the trades. You’ll work with local talent with master carpentry skills, and who are bonded and certified.
