Shopping for kitchen cabinets can be a complicated task if one does not know what to look for. There are a few things to consider when shopping for kitchen cabinets. The type of wood the cabinets are made of, the finish and drawer action are some of the features that should be considered.
One of the aspects of kitchen cabinets to consider is the kind of wood the cabinets are made of. For wood selection, color, the kind of wood or type, and the grain of the wood are important features to consider. One of the most common types of wood used on kitchen cabinets is oak. Oak is a strong wood. It can be painted and stained with many different colors. Other high quality woods that could be considered are cherry, hickory, pine and maple. Cherry is famous for its smooth quality. Its color gets deeper as it gets older giving it a very elegant look. Hickory is a very strong and heavy wood that has streaks in its grain. Pine works well with antiquing methods and is often used in country houses. Maple has a wavy grain and is very durable.
Another thing to consider when choosing kitchen cabinets is whether frameless or framed cabinets are preferred. Frameless cabinets generally have more space inside than framed cabinets. If there is not a lot of kitchen space available, perhaps frameless cabinets could be considered.
The finish of kitchen cabinets is also important. Flaws such as stains in cracks and creases and unsanded areas are some of the indicators of lower quality cabinets. Cabinets that have a well-prepared finish can resist wear and tear much better and for much longer than cabinets that have not had finish applied well.
Drawer action is another important thing to check when selecting kitchen cabinets. High quality cabinet drawers have a smooth slide, even when there is a considerable amount of weight in them.
High quality kitchen cabinets are very durable and can help make a kitchen look beautiful. Knowing what to look for can help make shopping for kitchen cabinets a smooth experience.
