How To Dress Up Your Kitchen Like A Showpiece!

How To Dress Up A Kitchen Like A Showpiece!

According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) kitchen cabinetry could take up to 40% of a remodeling budget. To ensure you’re get the best value for your money and to avoid costly mistakes, why not explore all available options before making a decision.



Quality of construction:

Solid wood – Tends to be expensive.

Budget friendly insider designer tip: ask your cabinet maker if you could use the solid wood for just the doors and frames.


Good quality laminate – can be made with high -quality, thick particleboard underneath the laminate finish.

Always make sure that inside every cabinet is well finished and has adjustable shelving at least 5/8 inch thick to prevent sagging.


Here’s a list of kitchen cabinet design finishes to dress up your kitchen like a showpiece:

Rope Kitchen Cabinet Design Finishes – This gives kitchens an elegant and rich look. Don’t be surprised if your guests are drawn to this design and find them so irresistible, they just have to touch your kitchen cabinets.
