Quality Over Quantity Kitchens

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Once upon a time a company’s worth was measured by the quality of their products. These days, however, more often than not, the focus in on quantity. With the introduction of computerised equipment, the trend is in mass-produced goods, which often results in lower quality output.

When it comes to fitting out a kitchen, choosing the right flat pack and bench tops is vitally important. With countless looks and feels available, it’s important to choose a style that feels right for your home. It is rare to find a company that has the traditional feel that comes with an authentic cabinet maker, and the personal touch of products manufactured on the premises.

Factors to consider when choosing your kitchen

  • Bench tops and cabinets range from the very cheap, to high end products – it’s important to decide how much you are willing to compromise on the look, feel and cost, and decide what’s important for you;
  • Bench tops now come in an enormous variety of colours and finishes, to suit every budget and taste – considering your needs and customising to them is essential;
  • In the current market economy, the DIY sector is increasing in popularity – but are your skills up to scratch?

When putting together a kitchen, a flat pack is obviously the most cost-effective way to go about it, but alongside the substantial cost saving, it is important to consider whether the company you are dealing with can (and will) provide you with support in case of emergency.

Cabinets

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Designing your own kitchen cabinets is a complicated process that is best handled by skilled professionals.

cabinets

Kitchen cabinets can be customised when it comes to both style and size.

However, whether you’re going to have an active part in the process or not, there are definitely some things you should consider. For starters, think about where you want everything stored and how this should reflect the layout of your cabinets.

For instance, a kitchen cabinet that is designed to store small plates and bowls will have much different dimensions to one that is made for storing large pots and pans. Most people simply get their kitchen cabinets fitted and then fill them up. The right way to go about things is to consider where you want things stored and tailor your cabinet design to match up with this.

Putting the effort into making your own decisions with your cabinet design can really pay off. When you’re using your kitchen to cook or even to just carry out small tasks like making a cup of tea, you’ll find things so much easier having everything to hand. If you’ve got a large kitchen with plates and bowls on the other of the room to knives and forks it can be incredibly frustrating marching up and down the kitchen between the two.

Kitchen cabinets are produced by a massive variety of companies. Famous companies exist in Canada and Sweden but shopping for kitchen utilities can be done anywhere, so long as you take caution to shop around for a good price. It is becoming prevalent for people to buy things like cabinets in kit form and construct them at home, making transport easier, and simply requiring a little DIY skill. Cabinets of a huge variety of designs and sizes can be found in this form or ready made.
You can find base cabinets, built for the floor, with drawers fixed above the cabinet, two cabinets side by side, tall thin cabinets for kitchens with low floor space, and of course wall mounted cabinets of various shapes. Triangular cabinets that fit snugly into a corner make maximum use of the space and give the shape of the kitchen a smoother look. Some companies make two cabinets one above the other, with a space in between making a small shelf.

Installing Kitchen Cabinets

The easiest way to install the cabinets are pre-assembled and pre-finished cabinets that can be found in any large store home improvement. The benefit to them is that they come in stock sizes and can pick up when it’s convenient for you. They are also much less expensive than custom cabinets. You can also buy them unfinished and paint or stain to really personalize your kitchen.

After removing the old cabinets, take care measures. Since the cabinets come in a wide variety of sizes, you can mix and match to fit your space. If you like the design of its original furniture, but just want the new style, then buy the same size as the old. You also want to buy a stud finder, a level and a couple of pieces of 2×4 lumber.

If you are doing both upper and lower cabinets, always install the upper cabinets first, since it is easier to do without the base cabinets in place! Use the stud finder to locate the studs in the wall. Typically, studs are placed sixteen inches apart. Mark the location of each bolt with a pencil. Now you have to find a point of reference for the cabinets. Normally there are about twenty inches of space between the counter top and the underside of upper cabinets. So the distance measured from the floor (or on your desk) and mark the wall. Now he wants to use their level and trace a line along the wall where the bottom of the cabinets will be. Attach the 2×4 to the wall with screws temporary, with the top right of the wood in pencil line is level to the bottom of the cabinets. This piece of wood will give you a little time resting point of hanging the cabinets and make sure they are the same level. Then, remove all cabinet doors – this will make installation easier.

Installing the offices of the first corner. Place the cabinet against the wall with the bottom edge of the 2×4 and drill a screw into one of the bolts. You must attach the cabinets to the studs to support the weight of your dishes. Make sure not to over tighten the rope, as you may have to shim the cabinets. Make sure the parts are level and shim if necessary.

Now install the next cabinet. This is the hardest part – to ensure that the cabinet fronts are painted with each other. You probably have to shim the second cabinet, or adjust the wedges in the corner cabinet to be of color. Once you download, screw in the second cabinet wall studs and then screw the cabinets to each other with the long screws provided. Clamp the cabinets together.

Follow these steps for subsequent cabinets. If there is more space between the cabinets, or end, you can buy strips of filler in the same material as the cabinets out in these gaps. Simply screw the long screws in adjacent cabinet and clamp.

Once installed the cabinets, tighten all the screws, remove and put the clamps on the doors. Take care to ensure that the doors are level with each other, adjusting as necessary. Remove the 2×4 and patch the screw holes. Now, connect the hardware.

Installing new upper cabinets can be done in a weekend and will add value and beauty to your kitchen.
