New Jersey Kitchen Cabinets: Customize Your Kitchen

June 12, 2010

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you know how much of a hassle it can be to stretch to reach items, not have enough storage space, or to have to try to wedge an item into a cabinet that is just not big enough. Renovating your kitchen with custom kitchen cabinets can not only give your kitchen an entirely new look but can also make your kitchen a much easier place to work as well.

Cabinet Doors
The first step in customizing your New Jersey kitchen cabinets is to decide which type of cabinet door you prefer. There are four basic types of cabinet door shapes you can choose from.

Slab cabinet doors have a flat style front without a recessed or raised profile. Slab cabinet doors works very well with simple New Jersey kitchen cabinets and kitchens to embrace a minimalist style.

Raised panel doors feature a picture frame profile that has either mortise and tendon joints or miter joints.

Raised panel doors are constructed with numerous sections of wood that are joined together.

Routed cabinet doors provide the appearance of panels that are recessed or raised and are typically made from fiberboard or a similar material.

Selecting a Wood Species
After you’ve chosen the type of door you prefer, you’ll need to select a wood species. There are so man woods a New Jersey homeowner can choose from today that you’re sure to find a look that fits your kitchen and lifestyle. If you’re creating a green home, or want to use as many sustainable products as you can, consider bamboo cabinets. (Bamboo regenerates within three years, and so is considered an eco-friendly wood alternative.) On the other hand, if you crave a warm and sunny look, then traditional hardwood or even reclaimed wood is a great choice for your New Jersey kitchen cabinets.
