Think about going to check out some stores that showcase various kitchen cabinet designs so that you can see what is out there. An added bonus is that all the latest gizmos and gadgets, like work space counters that can be rolled into a corner, will give you additional updating ideas, especially if you have an extremely tiny kitchen area or reside in an apartment.
The first step to a new kitchen that really works for you is to make a list of what is not working in the existing kitchen. List all the elements that are worn out and need replacing. List appliances and counters that are in inconvenient places. If the kitchen area is too small, look for areas that it can expand to. Maybe it is next to a formal dining room you never use, or a living room that is too large and can give some space to the kitchen and still serve it's function well. The wall between the kitchen and living room can be replaced with an open counter space. For structural changes like this, you will need a professional contractor.
Stock cabinets are the lowest in price because of the limited choices, colors and styles. Stock cabinets come in 3 grades. The standard grade is made up of particleboard sides and a 4-sided drawer box that is stapled and glued. The midrange cabinets have better drawer boxes, and usually have thicker shelves in the wall cabinets. The higher-grade cabinet has the features of the previous grades in addition to plywood sides, concealed hinges and a better quality finish. They all come with standard accessories.
