Determine the scope of your project
Besides the budget, you need to decide if you want your new kitchen to reflect your homes' overall design style or if you want it to stand alone. While many do mirror the overall atmosphere, it’s not uncommon to find a kitchen that its own space. Now, narrow your scope by making a list of challenges with the original kitchen that you’d like to change.
What is the size and shape of your kitchen? That will also help you determine style; for instance, a small kitchen tends to look better with more clean, streamlined cabinets, while large, open spaces are OK with the broad, elegant, traditional designs. It’s also time to think about your kitchen flooring because designers say the floor sets the entire room's tone. Make sure it coordinates with the rest of the look.
Adding your expression of personal style
Consider final touches, such as a splash of color, a well-placed wine rack, furniture or some accessory, lighting, changes in hardware, or countertops to make your design statement. Little as they might be, these details are what can make your cabinetry stand out. They can also create different tones, especially with transitional styles like Shaker, making them look modern, traditional, or merely neutral.
