Sacandaga Lake Cabinets
Let’s have a closer
look on cabinets and what to look for when deciding on
your next kitchen. Considering a new or a simple kitchen
re facing, first decide on general distribution of the
kitchen cabinets according to the space available. With
different types of kitchens, single-row, L- or corner-shape
and U-shape with or without kitchen islands, where to
put what, depends on your room size.
The classical way to distribute the basic kitchen
appliances around cabinets is: refrigerator, space,
oven, space, kitchen sink with dishwasher. Obviously
not considering any additional space for a possible
washing machine. This traditional way of lineup keeps
the heat of the oven away from the fridge and still
allows room to have the close enough. Obviously it
is up to you and the space you have at your home
to find the best distribution. You can just draw
a simple floor plan of your kitchen and cut out of
paper board some pieces equivalent to each of your
appliances. This will give you a rough idea of what
could go where. Later on when you have a more concrete
feeling of where each cabinet will go to you can
talk to your cabinet maker to get a detailed drawing
of your ideas, before getting on with it.
Overall planning on
your new kitchen cabinets
Before getting in touch with
any cabinet maker or kitchen remodeling specialist, make
sure you get some basic points clear:
Material used. What
kind of material do you want your kitchen do
be? Massif wood or just veneer covered doors
and drawer tops. Wooden kitchen cabinets will
give a warm and friendly kitchen atmosphere
but might be more difficult to clean.
Framed or panel kitchen doors and drawer fronts are also an important
decision. Nicely framed mortise and tenon doors will give the furniture
a more traditional look than plain panel fronts.
Material for the Worktop. This
is a very important point for your decision.
The material used for the worktop can make
the difference if you later on like the kitchen
or not. You can choose from a variety of different
materials like marble, granite or other stones,
to laminated plywood, metal and massif wood
e.g. ash wood.
Hinges, knobs and drawer slides should be of excellent quality. Especially
these types of kitchen hardware is really what you want to be as
durable as possible. So look for high quality fittings at all your
Also think about sinks and faucet you might need. Make sure the design
fits well into the overall room.
If you think about these areas during your decision making process
you should find the right cabinets for your home. Ask your kitchen
designer or remodeling specialist also for a reference list of some
former customers so you can get in touch and check out durability
and usability of the kitchen cabinets.
