Kitchen cabinets can be customized with a wide variety of components that will allow you to express your design tastes, while simultaneously addressing your specific cooking and storage needs.

Before installing your kitchen cabinets, it's helpful to begin by assessing your practical needs and exploring different style options. You may have a number of kitchen gadgets that can find homes in built-in accessory drawer boxes or cutlery trays. Or you may prefer a built-in spice rack drawer, trash can pull-out, or even a custom wine cabinet. Any of these customized features can help make kitchen life easier and more organized. However, each of these items comes at a cost to be considered when budgeting your kitchen project.

The most common and often most affordable way to customize your kitchen cabinets is through the use of cabinet hardware. Door handles and drawer pulls come in a wide array of colors, materials, sizes and shapes. They are usually metal but can differ enough to change the look of your kitchen from traditional to modern or vice versa. They can be found anywhere from the most high-end kitchen design store to your local home retailer. They can also be installed quite easily with basic tools, making their inclusion in your design a cheap and efficient way to update the look of your kitchen.

Another way to accessorize your kitchen cabinets is to alter one or more of the actual cabinet doors. Adding glass or glass-paneled doors provides an open look in your kitchen and allows you to display stylish cookware, dishware, cookbooks or other kitchen collectibles. If you aren't sure you are organized enough to reveal the contents of your kitchen cabinets, consider semi-transparent or frosted glass instead; those materials won't reveal any unsightly jumble that might accumulate over time.

Another fun and functional way to customize your kitchen cabinet doors is by adding a memo board or chalkboard to one. These creative additions to your cabinets can help you organize your busy life or allow your kids to explore their artistic sides in your kitchen. These inexpensive cabinet components can keep your kitchen looking fresh, fun and welcoming.
