Your Kitchen Cabinets: The Importance of Quality

Investing in high-quality cabinets can save you so much money in the long run, as it eliminates the need for frequent replacement of worn-out parts. In light of that, it’s crucial to understand what cabinet refacing is and how cost-effective elements can make a difference. 

Read on to learn more about the process and factors to consider when seeking affordable alternatives for your cabinets.

What should quality kitchen cabinets be made of?

Beyond their aesthetic appeal, kitchen cabinets of superior quality should also provide functional, easy-to-use storage for at least a couple of decades. If you want to avoid issues in the future, take a closer look at the following characteristics:

1. Understanding Plywood

As compared to particleboard, plywood has a better construction. The material can hold screws, fasteners, and glue better as compared to particleboard. Plywood is made by adding layers of wood with the grain running in every alternate direction on each layer of the material. This is why the plywood is strong and durable.

It would also stop moisture from being absorbed much better when compared to particle boards. This is extremely important as the area around the sink is very likely to have water splashes.

In addition to the previous point, plywood is considered to be the top material to support heavier weight over a long period of time.

2. Soft-Close Hinges

The most critical component of a kitchen cabinet would be the cabinet hinges. Without them, you would not be able to open or close the cabinets. Some hinges could also cause stiff and uneven doors. Sometimes, doors of the cabinets could not be closed.

The hinge should also be adjustable in six ways as the name suggests. The six different ways would be in-out, up-down, and lastly, left-right. These hinges can be adjusted when the cabinet doors expand or contract throughout the four seasons. Hinges would need to be of good quality to ensure constant use through the years. All of the hinges used by us are of extremely good quality. Hence, you do not need to worry about poor-quality hinges.

3. Use these Undermount, Soft-Close Drawer Glides

High-quality drawer slides are extremely important too. This is because it has to support the smooth and silent movements of all your cabinets to ensure it still functions after many years. With the increased weight that your cabinets or drawers have to carry, there is then an increased need to include heavy-duty glides.

4. Buy Assembled Cabinets Assembles in the Factory

Fully assembled cabinets

All of these kinds of cabinets are designed to be fully assembled in different factories. Hence these kinds of cabinets are much stronger and more durable. If you would need a cabinet that is strong and durable, you can request this type of cabinet. The pieces would then bond on a microscopic level to increase the strength of your cabinet. These cabinets are then built, packed, and shipped as a whole and ready to be installed on the walls of your home.

Ready-to-assemble cabinets

These cabinets are shipped in different parts such as the cabinet, face frames, and doors. These cabinets are less expensive. Hence, if you are looking for cabinets with a budget you can go with this option. Compared to fully assembled cabinets, this type of cabinets take longer to assemble.
