Kitchen Cabinets

Modern Kitchen Cabinets

One of the most important components of the kitchen design is the cabinet. It is the biggest and most visible part of the kitchen structure. In some kitchen designs, the cabinet is the only thing visible in the kitchen. The size and structure of the kitchen cabinet are determined by the size of your kitchen space and your design preference.

There are mainly three kinds of basic cabinets.
  1. Base Cabinets: They are installed on the floor and serve as support for the kitchen islands
  2. Wall Cabinets: As the name implies, it is a cabinet installed on the wall and the designs are flexible. It can be stacked as tall as the roof to accommodate kitchen items not used frequently
  3. Tall cabinets: This is also called a pantry or utility cabinet, it is bigger than the wall cabinet having the space to accommodate appliances like ovens and microwaves.

Sometimes, cabinet designs are formed from just a single kind of design while other time, it is a combination of two or more classifications. When basic cabinets are combined uniquely, it becomes a custom design. Another important part of the cabinet design is the finishing. We have cabinet finishes like painted finishes, stained finishes, white cabinets, black cabinets, maple cabinets, mission oak etc. The finish you choose is determined by your budget and what you think is best suited to your needs.

After installing the cabinet, you need to know the basics of maintaining the cabinet so it last longer. We don't want a situation where you have to remodel every 6 months because the cabinets keep getting damaged, it damages our reputation as your designer. So, here are a few maintenance steps :
  1. Immediately after installation, clean the cabinets with a soft damp cloth and dry with another cloth. Using a high-quality polish, wipe in the direction of the wood grain.
  2. Try to avoid building up grime and grease on the cabinets, this can be done by cleaning the cabinets regularly using a soft damp cloth every week. The frequency of basic cleaning is determined by how much you use the kitchen but a wipe down must be done at least once a week
  3. For tougher stains, you can use the dishwasher soap to help get rid of the stains or mix baking soda with water. For sticky stains, mixing water with vinegar will help a lot.
  4. When there is spillage, do not let it linger before wiping it off
  5. Try to stop substance like Solvents, nail polish remover, ammonia, bleach and much more from touching any part of the cabinet
  6. Do not use harsh cleaning agents and always dry with a cloth to avoid moisture

The kitchen cabinet is important not just for its aesthetic value but also because it is quite functional. Your choice cabinet must be sturdy enough to handle any dishware, kitchenware, or cookware you use at home. You need to install a kitchen cabinet that is the perfect balance between functions and outlook and this might be quite difficult to achieve without having expert designers at German Kitchen Center in your corner.
