Kitchen cabinets are a crucial component to add to the functionality and style of your kitchen. Custom cabinetry is a beautiful addition to this space and will certainly allow you to personalize your kitchen to suit your needs. Here we share some top tips to consider before choosing the kitchen cabinets to work for you!
Let’s face it, kitchen renovations are not cheap. Quality, craftsmanship, and precision are key to creating a space that you can be proud of – and one that will work to serve your family best.
When it comes to kitchen cabinets, choose wisely. There is certainly a wide variety of finishes on offer today, but be sure to invest in cabinetry that will stand the test of time and will add to the overall style of your kitchen, whether country, industrial or a shaker style kitchen.
First, consider the box or carcass of your cabinets and how this will best be positioned in your kitchen. The box and drawers can be constructed from varying thicknesses and qualities of particle board, plastic, plywood, or even metal.
The most popular is what is called a “solid wood” box, which means it is constructed from plywood that typically has a real wood veneer on the inside of the box, so it is smooth, attractive, and can be finished.
Some of the more popular options include maple or beech veneers, although walnut and oak are increasing in popularity in the kitchen. Wood is, after all, a timeless and durable finish, especially in the kitchen! High-quality materials ensure a consistent thickness, which will lead to a more accurate installation and a designer finish in your kitchen!
A product that is new to the South African market and will be taking the lead in terms of finishes for cabinetry and countertops is a nanotech finish that is water-proof, heat resistant, fingerprint proof and can regenerate itself from minor scratches with a damp cloth. Materials with these attributes will revolutionise the way a kitchen lasts.
If you’re not sure about the specifications and finishes you will require for the optimum kitchen experience, it is often best to consult with the professionals about your needs and the functionality of your new kitchen.
