Whole House and New Construction

Don’t underestimate the importance of choosing the right cabinets and shelves for your new home or remodel. Your kitchen, bathrooms, mud room, utility room and the garage will need cabinetry that is both suitably functional and aesthetically compatible with your home’s interior design.

The secret of a low-maintenance house is adequate storage space. High traffic areas such as the common room should have cabinets for storing coats, shoes and sports equipment. Open shelves are recommended for shoes and backpacks.

Every bathroom in your house will need functional cabinets to stow towels, small appliances and toiletries. A combination of open shelves and closed cabinets works best to maximize the use of limited space in bathrooms.

The garage, utility room and laundry room become more organized and stay organized with enough storage space. However, cabinets for these areas tend to be heavy on function rather than aesthetic appeal. Choose durable, easy-to-clean and dirt resistant styles and finishes.

Cabinet style mostly refers to the design of the cabinet doors and the hardware you choose. Shaker style doors are minimalist in design, and have remained very popular throughout the years. You might consider louvered doors or glass panel doors for a distinctively architectural touch. Flat-panel doors with statement hardware have become popular with modern minimalism. A wide range of inset doors are also available.


If custom kitchen islands are included as an option in your new home, consider the interplay of dark and light colors. Contrast between your kitchen island and cabinets could be a perfect feature.
