Laminate Kitchen Cabinets

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Plastic laminate is a popular choice for kitchen cabinets because it is durable, stain resistant and available in an array of colors, patterns, and textures. It is also easy to clean, but just because it easy to clean doesn’t mean that you can neglect to give it maintenance.

Unfortunately, there are two common problems with plastic laminate countertops which include chipping and torn edges. However, due to advances in technology; you can repair a small chip for less than $20. Edge repairs cost about the same. The process for repairing a small chip in a counter top is exactly the same as filling the seam when repairing a torn edge.
Plastic laminate is nothing more than Kraft paper, resins bonded together under heat and pressure, and a plastic coating. You will notice with plastic laminates that the Kraft paper that it is constructed of leaves a brown edge. However, this brown edge can be covered and decorated with a stainless steel, brass, or wood trim. If you decide to go with a more expensive solid-color laminate, you will notice plastic sheets of the same color throughout so that no dark edges are revealed.

Laminate cabinets have several benefits that cannot be found with other cabinet materials. For one,they’re stain resistant. Due to their incredible
resilience, maintenance is a cinch. So when the next food fight breaks out in your kitchen, you can rest easy. Because they are man-made items,they are not limited to tones/patterns, and they come in a varied palette of colors. Additionally,laminate cabinets do not warp and are very strong,which means that you can store heavy items with confidence, knowing that there will be no structural damage to your cabinets.

Even if your kitchen layout is just what you want and the cabinets are in good condition, you can still give your kitchen a fantastic facelift by refacing the cabinet doors. If your doors are laminate, you can make your cabinets look brand new by following these simple ideas.

Refacing laminate kitchen cabinet doors need not be a difficult job and the results can transform your kitchen from a room that looks tired and worn-out to one that is bursting with style and color.Here are two ideas for refacing your laminate kitchen cabinet doors that should be relatively easy to carry out and will not cost a fortune.

Contemporary kitchen cabinets

Contemporary kitchen cabinets

Contemporary kitchen cabinets

Contemporary kitchen cabinets

are generally composed of minimal ornamentation and flat surfaces. The style is intentionally non-traditional. Contemporary kitchen designs date from the 1940s to the present, and trace many of their stylistic origins in Europe.

Elements of Style: For a clean and spacious look, contemporary kitchen design avoids excess ornamentation. Crown molding, wood carvings, and raised panel door styles are almost never used. Small spaces can be made to feel bigger if there is less visual stimulation. Therefore the relatively flat surfaces found in contemporary kitchens can be of benefit to smaller modern homes.

Materials: Most materials in contemporary kitchen designs are man-made, including metal, plastic, concrete, glass, and recycled goods. While these man-made materials can often feel cold and sterile, many designers like to incorporate natural elements such as wood veneer and natural stone to bring some warmth back into the room. Simple decorations such as a potted plant or a bowl of fruit can also give your kitchen a more natural ambiance.

Asian Kitchen Design

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

 Asian Kitchens: With a beautiful array of materials and color palettes to choose from, an Asian kitchen design can bring a fresh look to both contemporary and traditional homes. Kitchen cabinet styles featuring Asian-inspired designs are growing in popularity throughout the United States.

Asian Influences: For over 100 years, Chinese and Japanese styles have influenced Western woodworking. The Arts and Crafts movement, for example, borrowed heavily from the Asian style elements of geometric lines, heavy proportions, and slight curves. Whether traditional or modern, the elegance and symmetry of a Chinese or Japanese style kitchen harmonizes well with many Western styles, including Craftsman, Shaker, Mission, Contemporary, and Modern.

Materials and Colors: Asian kitchen design relies on a spendid assortment of colors and materials. Popular Asian colors include red, black, white, silver, honey/gold, and dark brown. Popular materials include stainless steel, chrome, bamboo, and silk. Bamboo kitchen cabinets, while still rare, are growing in popularity almost as quickly as the fast-growing bamboo plant itself. Black painted cabinets in a Shaker style make for a contemporary Asian look. Maple is also a very popular choice among my clients for its clean and subdued appearance.

Asian Decor: The final details are important for completing the look of your Asian style kitchen. You can use small or large stalks of bamboo as plant decorations. For wall decorations, Asian themed art or beautifully printed silk can enliven the room. Ornate wood carvings from China can bring a sense of history and tradition to your space. Bamboo placemats, asian dishes, and chopsticks can be left on display as place settings on your breakfast bar, island, or sitting area.

Pictures of Kitchens: Below are some pictures of kitchens featuring Asian inspired designs. If you enjoy the beauty and simplicity of these Asian kitchens, be sure to take a look at the Modern, Contemporary, Arts and Crafts, Shaker, and Craftsman kitchen styles as well.
