How To Choose Your Arizona Kitchen Cabinets

Selecting your Arizona kitchen cabinets can be a daunting task. You’ve got colors, layouts, designs, textures, woods, hardware, size, depth, and much, much more. Arizona kitchen cabinets come in stock vs custom-made, wood vs stainless steel, natural finishes vs painted finishes, and the list goes on. At Capital Mark Granite and Cabinet, we can help you narrow down those overwhelming choices. For now, however, let’s break it down to a few simply steps that you can take to get to the bottom of what kind of Arizona kitchen cabinets you’ll want.

1. What is Your Budget? By determining exactly how much money you have to spend on your new kitchen cabinets, you can set yourself up to make the right selections. There’s nothing worse than falling in love with a style, color or design and then realize you just don’t have the budget to make it happen. Be realistic, and set a budget goal with little room to negotiate. This will not only get you the best deal, it will require you to stick within that budget. Before you know it, costs can spiral a bit out of control. At Capital Mark, we can help you stick within that budget and get the Arizona kitchen cabinets you want.

2. Wood Types.  There are a variety of wood types that you can choose from, and this can be the most overwhelming part. While we work to expand our supply of in stock cabinets, we have a large list of wood cabinets for you to choose from. Below are a few examples of what you can expect:

  • Mahogany is quite a popular Gilbert cabinet material at the present moment. With its rich, dark color, straight grain and very formal appeal, it can be worked into many kitchen designs.
  • Birch is quite the opposite of mahogany. It’s the least-expensive wood for kitchen cabinets, and the most commonly used because of its price. It comes in a pale color, but can be stained to resemble many other more expensive woods.
  • Cherry wood is a time-old classic when it comes to Arizona kitchen cabinets. It’s been used for decades for its smooth, uniform grain and elegant appeal.
  • Maple is, according to some local sources, the number one, most popular choice for Arizona kitchen cabinets. Just hearing the name “maple cabinets” brings about a feeling of homeliness and warmth.


3. Design Choices. There are literally hundreds of designs and layouts to choose from. Your best bet is to browse through online sources, such as and our Portolio, as well as magazines to point out some styles you like. Hopefully you’ll began to notice some styles and trends that appeal to you more than others.
