Why You Should Get a Cabinet Sample Before You Buy

Cabinets door Samples

When remodeling or renovating your kitchen, it is essential to consider the look and feel of your cabinets. Before you commit to a purchase, it is important to get a cabinet door sample, or a kitchen cabinet sample so that you can see the exact style and color of your cabinets in person. Doing so will give you peace of mind and make sure that you’re making the right decision for your kitchen.

Space and Design of the Cabinets

When shopping for cabinets, space and design should be among the first things you consider. You want to make sure that the door style and size of the cabinets fit with the design of the rest of your space. One way to make sure the cabinets you purchase are a good match for your room is to get a cabinet sample before making your purchase. This allows you to see how the cabinet door will look in the lighting of your space, as well as get a feel for the door style. Additionally, having a sample allows you to visualize how much space each cabinet takes up and how it will fit into the overall design of your room.

The overall design of a room is similar to the lighting in the sense that the unifying theme has an effect on the elements that make up. Likewise, a cabinet that looks like it might be appropriate for that theme may turn out to completely clash with the other features of the space. Getting a cabinet door sample before making a purchase can help you address this problem by allowing you to see how the cabinet door looks and feels in the space, as well as get a feel for the door style. Having a sample can help ensure you get the cabinet that best matches your vision. If you’re shopping with Lily Ann, you can also make use of our FREE 3D kitchen design tool.

Feel of Wood Cabinets

Whether you’re remodeling your kitchen or just replacing some cabinets, the feel of the wood should be taken into consideration. It's not only the aesthetic look of the wood but also how it feels when you open and close doors and drawers over the years. Lily Ann cabinets are designed with this in mind and use two types of wood: birch and North American maple.

Birch is known for its fine grain and maple has an “organic” feel. If you can’t decide between two styles of cabinets, it's important to touch and feel each one before making a decision. Getting samples is the best way to find out which wood feels better to you. If you're remodeling your kitchen or replacing some cabinets, make sure to get a sample of each wood so you can compare them side by side. This will give you a better understanding of how each type of wood feels and make it easier for you to make a decision.

Comparison of Each Cabinet Style

Kitchen Cabinet Door Samples

When you’re trying to decide between two cabinet styles for your home, the best way to know for sure which one is right for you is to get a kitchen cabinet sample. That way, you can compare the two styles in your own space and determine which one will work best. With a sample of each style, you can evaluate their design, feel the wood they are constructed of, and determine how well each cabinet door fits into your home.

By doing this comparison in person, you can make sure that you’re making the right decision. You can also involve others in the decision-making process by having them weigh in on how each cabinet door sample looks and functions in your home.
