One of the most exciting parts of designing your new home is deciding what you want the interior to look like, and selecting your cabinetry is a big part of that. Apart from wanting everything to look appealing, you also need to ensure that the cabinets, cupboards and drawers in your new home will be practical.
Before deciding on your home builder or home and and package, there are a few questions you need to ask:
Where will the cabinets in my new home come from?
If the cabinets for your new home are flat packed, and are from overseas, the choices available to you may be very limited. If your cabinets are custom built in Perth, they can be tailored to suit your needs.
Can my cabinets be customised?
If your cabinetry is locally made, there will be a lot more flexibility to change designs, control over what the end product will look like, and the quality is generally superior to flat packed cabinets.
Will there be enough storage?
A kitchen without adequate storage can be a nightmare, so making sure you have allowed for plenty of storage before you commence building is recommended. Think of the kitchen in the home you currently reside in, or any past houses you have lived in; did they have adequate storage?
You want your kitchen to grow with you, so consider the future, if you plan on growing your family then you may need to allow for a bigger kitchen. There are a lot of options when it comes to the layout of your kitchen; it might be helpful to list down anything you definitely want.
- Do you want a walk-in pantry?
- Do you want to add a scullery?
- Are you wanting overhead cupboards?
- Do you require space for a wine rack?
- Will your fridge need an extra large recess?
- Will your kitchen need a dishwasher or microwave recess?
What kind of benchtops will your home have?
Find out if your builder does stone benchtops throughout, or if the stone is limited just to the kitchen. Stone is extremely hard wearing, has a range of colours and looks amazing, it is ideal for use in kitchens, bathrooms, laundries, and more.
What finishing touches are included?
The finishing touches are what makes a home extra special, so it is a good idea to find out what your builder offers.
Will soft closers be fitted to all drawers and cupboard doors? Is there a good choice of stylish handles? Is the laminate used on the cabinetry good quality? Does the laminate come in a wide range of colours?
Making sure your chosen builder offers everything that is needed to have functional and stylish cabinets, cupboards and drawers is important. Talk to the friendly and professional staff at Momu today about your vision for your new home.
