Choosing the right cabinets for your kitchen is one of the most important decisions you will make during a renovation. Almost everything else can be changed later, but “cabinet regret” will cost you big bucks—and probably a major headache or two.

A Budget & A Blueprint
Even if you “can” afford to change your mind about the cabinets later, why would you want to? Your choice of cabinetry is integral to so many other design choices—from the countertops to the appliances to the overall layout of the kitchen itself—that a “renovation of the renovation” will cost more than just money, but also time and a lot of inconveniences.

Prioritize Projects
If renovating your kitchen in one fell swoop isn’t in the budget, prioritize projects starting with the cabinets. What is the point of installing beautiful, one-of-a-kind granite countertops on top of old, damaged, or low-grade cabinets? Lay the foundation for all of your future updates; start by investing in new kitchen cabinets and renovate from there.
