Cabinets are a large portion of the cost when remodeling your kitchen. Before you buy new kitchen cabinets make sure you have made a plan and identified your must-haves.

Cabinets are an essential part of the style and functionality of your kitchen. Unfortunately, choosing new kitchen cabinets is not a quick, easy process. There are a lot of factors to consider when looking for your new cabinets.??


Every great kitchen cabinet remodel needs a vision. You can gather inspiration from resources like Houzz, Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook.??

When choosing new kitchen cabinets, you should consider the cabinet materials. In general, cabinet boxes are made of pressboard or plywood. Neither is a superior material, rather it is often based on your preference. How do you know which is best for your kitchen??


Pressboard is the cheapest cabinet material option. The low price point is its most attractive feature. Pressboard is made by adhering wood chips together with glue and covering it with a veneer. The material is more sensitive to moisture and less durable.?


A?more durable option than pressboard, plywood?is made?from?multiple?layers of compressed and veneered wood. This material is more water-resistant and stands up well to heavy use. Plywood is also much easier to assemble and install.?However, it is a more expensive option than pressboard.
