Amazing kitchens are often the biggest selling points in real estate, but not every home is graced with greatness. So just what is it that creates the wow-factor? While some might believe it boils down to awe-inspiring appliances or a footprint palatial enough to please a prince, the main ingredient of amazing kitchens are, more often than not, the cabinets. They might seem a minor detail, but cabinets are truly what creates cohesion between flooring and counter materials and determine the actual lay-out for the entire space.
From galley-style to open concept, every square foot of the kitchen revolves around the configuration of the cabinetry. They direct the dance between sink, stove, and refrigerator, which means that that “work triangle” will only work if the cabinets have been placed to please with efficiency and ease.

Storing It Up
What’s in store for your kitchen, storage-wise? Again, a question that can only be answered by the cabinetry. Uppers, lowers, and islands offer different options, from the size to the number of drawers, doors, and shelves; and whether you’re stocking up to feed an army or simply keeping a few staples on hand, having the proper amount of storage means picking the proper kind of cabinets.
Prepare to Be Wowed
Counter to common assumption, usable prep space doesn’t rely on counter materials. It rests, quite literally, in fact, on the cabinets—not only in how they’re placed, but also their dimensions. Are they deep or narrow? Do they stretch out endlessly or come up short? Whatever the case may be, having enough counter space to accommodate regularly used small appliances without chopping down where you chop comes down to proper measure of the cabinets. Those magnificent marbles and glorious granites would be nothing without the support of the cabinets, so before you go stomping through the stone yard to find your stunning slab, it’s important to realize the crucial role of the cabinets.
Just as one first eats with their eyes, they also first judge a kitchen by its visual appeal. Admittedly, countertops, back splashes, appliances, and flooring are all extremely crucial ingredients to creating a recipe for amazing kitchens; but cabinets can either make or break the effect, much like a misused spice can muddle a dish. Choosing the color, finish, and style of cabinetry isn’t something to take lightly, so consider it well; and seek the advice of a kitchen remodeling contractor if you’re feeling a bit lost in creating a custom kitchen design. Are you looking for a punch of color or going for the natural look? Do you prefer sleek design or a farmhouse-feel? Whatever your goal going forward, the cabinets are more than just a garnish in the overall space—they provide the basic stock for building flavor in the home and designing a kitchen that not only tempts the eye, but nourishes your needs.
