Bring Your Cabinet Door Samples Home – Dennis Serge

Dennis Serge, Designer at Kitchen Views in Mansfield, MA

Regardless of which cabinet manufacturer you choose to supply your new kitchen, one of the most important decisions you will make during the design process at Kitchen Views is choosing the door style and finish color for your new kitchen. Here is a very helpful hint. Once you have made your selection, arrange to sign out a sample door in the style and color you have chosen and take it home with you. Showroom lighting can be dramatic and varied and is not always similar to that of a normal residence.

Sometimes a finish color may not look the same in the showroom as it does at home. So, bring that sample home for a few days so that you can look at it carefully on a sunny day, a cloudy day, and at night when the lights are on. This way you can be certain you will be satisfied with the color once your new cabinets are installed. Every so often, I have had a customer come back and tell me that the sample looked “different” when they got it home, and, in a few instances, I have had clients change their color selection as a result. As the old saying goes, “better safe than sorry”.

    I agree with this post, the looks of the cabinet in the showroom can be misleading.. its always better to try it out once at one’s own kitchen, to check whether it is alright. Good job on sharing this post… thanks!
