Cabinets can make an incredible statement in any kitchen remodel project. Not only are they solid and customizable to your specific style preferences, they can set a mood all their own!

Habitat for Humanity ReStores offer gently used cabinets at a fraction of their retail cost, as these stores specialize in selling salvaged furniture, household goods and building materials.

Slab Cabinets

Flat panel or slab cabinet doors have seen an upsurge in popularity in recent years, offering an elegant modern style option that’s simple to keep tidy. Furthermore, these affordable alternatives to American or framed style cabinetry don’t require as many manufacturing steps, which reduces manufacturing costs significantly.

Use kitchen showrooms and local kitchen stores as sources for used slab cabinets at a fraction of their retail costs, or search online marketplaces like eBay and Facebook Marketplace, where working cabinets that get replaced by new models often get sold cheap or for free. Be sure to look for sellers with high ratings and feedback; ask for photos showing both interior and hardware features so that you can assess condition accurately before making a decision to purchase or not.

Sliding Cabinets

Sliding cabinet doors add an elegant, contemporary aesthetic to your kitchen, bathroom or closet. Since they don’t require a door knob or pull for use, anyone in the family can operate these sliding doors effortlessly.

Choose sliding cabinet doors made of tempered glass to add an airy and open feeling in any room. They come in various colors and finishes that complement any decor perfectly.

Select drawer slides based on their material or load capacity. Roller slides offer a budget option that attach to either side or bottom of a drawer and are easy to install; however, their forgiving nature may make other slide types preferable; when building frames or face frames you may require blocking out end caps before attaching roller slides.

Pull-Out Cabinets

Cabinet organizers that slide out are an effective solution for making it easier for people to quickly locate what they need, including utensils, cookware and cleaning supplies. Customizable shelves allow these organizers to accommodate various sizes and types of products as well as features like adjustable dividers or built-in racks for lids or cutting boards.

These shelves can also help reduce strain from stooping or reaching, making it safer for kids and seniors living at home. Furthermore, they may help increase storage capacity up to 50% due to optimizing hard-to-reach areas typical of upper or lower cabinets; such shelves are sometimes called kitchen pullouts, sliding cabinet drawers or roll out drawers.

Glass Cabinets

Many homeowners opt for glass cabinets in their kitchens because they offer a clear view of dishware and decor. Unfortunately, however, this cabinet style may not suit everyone, as it requires careful curating of items to keep things arranged neatly.

Frosted or seeded glass provides a more forgiving option, allowing you to still view your possessions clearly without being too visible. Plus, with creative designs like acid wash finishes or acid washed mirror inserts you can add visual interest and visual pop!

Leaded glass offers an antique or vintage aesthetic. You can modify its appearance depending on your style preferences – Gothic to Craftsman; stained or art glass may add color.

Storage Cabinets

Storage cabinets provide homeowners looking to streamline and declutter with an effective means of doing so. You can use them for craft supplies, books and more; some styles feature drawers equipped with peg systems or utensil dividers while others contain cubbies to organize bins out of sight.

Kitchen cabinets provide you with the opportunity to transform rooms in ways that reflect your creativity. Create a craft station in one corner or use cabinets to organize a walk-in closet using this versatile method of storage.

Check local thrift stores and Habitat ReStores for cabinet displays; these architectural salvage yards help provide affordable homes to families in need and keep materials out of landfills. Often stocking kitchen cabinets from remodeling projects as well as models for display.
