Remodeling a kitchen is costly and exciting, and it gives you the opportunity to choose brand-new cabinets. As you begin searching for the right cabinets, you may also want to spend some time looking at the newer features available with cabinets. If you have not purchased new cabinets in a long time, you might be surprised with these features you can now order with your cabinets.
Self-closing drawers and cabinets
If you get annoyed easily when cabinets and drawers are left open, you could order your cabinets with self-closing features. These features cause your drawers and cabinets to automatically close themselves after they are opened and released. With these, you will never find an open cabinet door again.
This feature is also nice if you are cooking and have greasy or dirty hands. You will not have to have contact with the cabinets and drawers with your hands as much, and this will keep your cabinets cleaner.
If you prefer having neat, clean counters that are not full of small appliances and utensils, you could get appliance garages installed in your kitchen. These are cabinets that open and close like a garage door. Inside one of these cabinets, there will be electric plugs for you to use for your appliances. Appliance garages are ideal for coffee stations, toasters, and other small appliances you use often in your kitchen. You could get one appliance garage with your new kitchen, or you could get multiple garages. This is up to you, and you can base this on your needs.
Storage devices and contraptions
The other thing to look at when ordering cabinets is the available storage devices and contraptions you can purchase and have installed with your cabinets. There are hundreds of different options you can choose from with these contraptions, and they are all designed to help you keep your kitchen more organized.
One option you could choose is a spice rack. This could be placed inside a cabinet, or it could be mounted to the inside of a cabinet door. This offers an easy way to keep spice jars organized in your kitchen. Another option you could look into is a rack that is designed to organize the lids for your pots and pans. These are just a few options, but there are plenty more that you might be interested in.
Getting new cabinets can require a lot of thought, primarily because there are so many options available. To learn more, talk to a contractor that specializes in cabinets, such as Olson Cabinets & Woodworking Inc.
