Kitchen cabinets can eat up as much as 30 percent of your total kitchen remodel budget. If you want custom cabinets and unique options, you may spend even more. Because they are so expensive, many people try to skimp or cut costs when choosing cabinetry for their new kitchen. However, many regret their decision to forgo certain luxuries when they realize their kitchen doesn't function as well as they like. 

If you're getting ready to remodel your kitchen, you have to put a lot of thought into your cabinetry. In addition to choosing storage options that work for you and your family, you should look for unique ways to improve the beauty and function of your kitchen. Sometimes this means thinking outside the box. Following are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

Custom Work Spaces

If you work from home, love to craft or engage in a lot of budgeting and meal planning, think about creating a customized work space right in your kitchen or directly adjacent to it. A custom built-in desk along with custom storage compartments could be just what you need to keep your cross stitching stash in order or to home school your child. 

Beautiful Built-Ins

Televisions, fish aquariums and collectibles are common items found in kitchens and dining rooms. If you want to create a cohesive look for your space and wish to include a curio cabinet, aquarium, or entertainment center in your decor, think about using cabinetry that matches the custom cabinets you put in your kitchen. With custom cabinetry options, you can create just about any type of cabinet in any size. Custom built-in cabinets are also ideal for hutches, bookshelves and built-in bench seating.

Customized Storage

Ever wish your kids had their own little cubby where they could store their backpacks, art supplies, favorite toys, coats and other prized possessions? If so, think about adding customized storage with custom cabinetry. With customized storage, you can make space for just about anything, which is especially helpful for families that have unique storage needs. 

As you can see, there are several ways you can improve the beauty and function of your kitchen with custom cabinetry. The key to choosing what options work best for your family is to think about your family's needs and consider what types of solutions work best for your unique situation. With custom cabinets, you can create just about anything. So you're only limited by your imagination and, perhaps, your budget.
