However, despite the fact that these cabinets add a very stylish and practical element to our homes, the reality is that they can be a costly investment too. For this reason, it is important to be able to make sure that we keep up them well enough so that they will not need fixing or replacing in just a few short years.
It is important that after every clean that you make sure that there is no water left on the surface, as this can damage the wood. Ensure that all moisture is wiped up with a soft cloth, and then that any polish is applied if necessary to add a protective layer back to the cabinet surface.
Oak is the most utilized; it is lightweight, somewhat water-resistant, and the grain stands out even after staining. It is often used to enhance "country" or "rustic" motifs, but it can be used solely for decorative style, too. Birch and ash are also popular; these woods are very light in color, and they hold stains quite well. Pine, a very yellow wood, is favored in French and English decorative styles, but it is very soft and prone to nicks.
Oil-rubbed bronze or brass looks amazing on white or grey cabinets which are very popular this year. See what can be found in antique stores and skip the cookie cutter pulls that are found in big box stores. Another vintage look is glass and ceramic pulls. Country style shaker cabinets will sing for attention and get it when adding these contrasting elements. These knobs and pulls come in a variety of styles and colors, and also opaque and transparent styles.
Standard cabinets are usually framed, meaning that the door and drawers are attached to a front frame. However, European, or frameless cabinetry, has been rising in popularity in recent years. In this option, the door and drawers are fastened directly to the box. The lack of a front face can lead to reduced strength of the structure, so experts recommend avoiding cheap materials such as particle board and instead using more substantial wood.
