Are you ready for some new kitchen cabinets? We’ve seen so many examples of how they can really transform the style and feel of your kitchen. Many of our clients love this upgrade when they want an affordable way to beautify their homes.

Here’s what you need to know about cabinet installation projects.

The Installation Process for New Kitchen Cabinets

The raw installation itself isn’t too difficult if you select basic cabinets, and know how to mount them appropriately. If you’re not handy with a drill, need help to select the right ones, or want a whole kitchen makeover, you’re best off consulting a professional interior design firm.

We follow a pretty simple design process. It involves four steps:

  1. Design your perfect kitchen to match all your needs
  2. Plan and select the colors and materials needed
  3. Install everything
  4. Enjoy the finished results!

How much does it cost to replace cabinets? This is a tough question to answer with a black-and-white answer. That’s because it depends on the size of your kitchen, which style you select, and whether you do other auxiliary tasks with it. The project could range from $2,000 to $10,000. Spatially, this usually comes out to $160 to $380 per linear square foot.

Gorgeous Styles for New Kitchen Cabinets

You have many diverse options for cabinet materials nowadays. Many homeowners elect to use oak, maple, hickory, veneer, and plywood designs to forge beautiful cabinets.

Then we can get into different design schemes, which, of course, would need to coordinate with the rest of your kitchen. One of the most popular themes is Shaker Style cabinets. It’s a simple, clean, and beautiful mixture of horizontal and vertical rails and stiles. Another great minimalistic option is slab cabinet doors.

Other Kansas City homes have Beadboard cabinets with traditional grooved panels. Glass-front cabinets offer the convenience of seeing what’s in each cabinet without having to open a bunch of them first. These are just a sample of the voluminous pallet of cabinetry choices you have in modern home design.
