Wood kitchen cabinets

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Having strong reliable kitchen cabinets are very important to have in a kitchen. Wood kitchen cabinets are an example of a reliable type of cabinet. This is because wood kitchen cabinets are very solid making the cabinet door extremely well-built. Upgrading to wood kitchen cabinets is a positive choice because they are used daily and you will not have to worry about breakage from this excessive use. Purchasing big items for your home can be quite pricey therefore it is a good idea to get wood kitchen cabinets so that once you upgrade you’ll never have to upgrade again.

Why Plywood vs. Particle board?

Cabinets made out of plywood hold great strength. Plywood consists of sheets of wood that are glued together in an odd number of layers. This creates symmetry in the wood and causes the wood to be less prone to warping. Cabinets made out of particleboard are a composite material. It consists of wood chips, sawmill shavings and saw dust with a synthetic resin used for binding. Particleboard is prone to expansion and discoloration due to moisture. Although particleboard may be a less pricey form of cabinet, plywood will be a material that you will never have to replace due to its strong reliable construction.

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.

Mission Style Kitchen Cabinets

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Mission style kitchen cabinets are one of the very few styles that are both beautiful and timeless.

If you’ve been in the market to renovate your home, especially where you prepare food, then the odds are that you’ve seen the term mission style kitchen cabinets pop up at one time or another.  This is because this is a style of cabinetry that is becoming exceptionally popular, just like modern or country kitchen cabinets

They offer a type of style that easily complements many other kinds of decorating, so that you can replace the cupboards and drawers without necessarily needing to change the countertops or décor of the entire room.  They typically have very sleek, clean lines in square or rectangular shapes, especially on the frames of the doors.  In terms of color, they are wood shades from medium to dark for a  much warmer final result.  They also include inlays to give their overall design a bit more flair.  Depending on your preference, you can choose them with or without leaded-glass inserts, as well.

Mission style kitchen cabinets date back to the early-to-mid twentieth century and has never once gone out of style since their creation.  They are often paralleled as an American version of the Arts and Crafts movement which occurred in the United Kingdom.  Though the style had been seen as quite basic, classic, and straight forward for quite some time, it was then used through the art-deco period in order to create its own crisper sleek appearance.

Mission Style Kitchen Cabinets – Booming In Popularity

Today, the overall decorating style is so popular that it is not just mission style kitchen cabinets that are available, but also tables, chairs, book cases, fireplace mantles and surrounds, and even bed head- and footboards.  It is the warmth that this kind of décor brings to a room, combined with the more contemporary geometric appeal that attracts so many people to its style.

When you decide to incorporate this style into your home, you can either use it exclusively among your pieces, or simply place it in some featured places, such as in mission style kitchen cabinets, and complement it with pieces in other styles that suit the look.  You can either create the look yourself – something that is time consuming and challenging, but if you have some skill and artistic flair, you can do it – or purchase the pieces ready-made.

If you want to locate mission style kitchen cabinets, you can often find them in the same places that you’d spot country kitchen cabinets.  Home renovation stores might carry a style or two, while you can also discover options in places that sell wood furniture, especially in more traditional styles.  If you can’t find exactly the right ones, you might speak with someone from a wood furniture store to see if it is possible to have them custom made in the look you’re seeking.
