Complete Your Kitchen With Stylish Kitchen Cupboard Doors When you first walk into a kitchen, generally the first thing that you will notice are the kitchen cupboard doors. The exteriors of these cupboards will set the whole feel for the kitchen - old wood will say country kitchen while black wood with silver handles will very often represent a more modern feel and design. There are so many kitchen cupboard doors for you to choose from, it can be hard to know which doors are the right ones for the kind of kitchen that you want to portray. From maple wood all the way through to fine oak materials, new homes and kitchens are simply completed by these small objects and with more styles than you could ever think possible, they are designed to match and accentuate the décor of your kitchen rather than overpower it. Generally, when you buy a kitchen from any vendor, they will throw in the kitchen cupboard doors for free and this is especially the case if you are buying multiple units. This integral part of the kitchen is the first thing that many people will see and therefore it makes sense to pay attention to detail. Whether you are putting a kitchen in a new home or simply remodeling an old one, these doors are very important. They must be convenient as this is very often seen as the hub of the household - it is where meals are prepared, where people tend to congregate at parties and it must be easy to clean and hygienic as well as looking good. Stiff doors will never do; if you cannot get the food out without a struggle, you are going to get annoyed with it! The best way to ensure that you have no problems with your kitchen cupboard doors is to have them professionally installed. Trying to do them yourself will usually result in hard to open doors that are not straight or even facing the right direction in some cases! Thankfully, you will find these essential doors in many different places from furniture stores and outlets to home appliance stores. Generally, they will be set out in a whole kitchen layout letting the consumer see exactly how they look and allowing them to visualize them in their own homes and this is important when you appreciate how many styles, sizes, colors and finishes that you can get these doors in! By seeing them in all of their glory in the store, you can mix and match different sets for a more retro and modern feel or even check out the durability and ease in which they are opened and shut without getting them into your home and then realizing they are not convenient or appropriate to your décor.

Pros and Cons of Kitchen Cupboard Resurfacing There are many benefits to having your kitchen, bathroom or office cupboards remodeled by resurfacing them. There are a few things that are not so good. My views on the pros and cons of renovating cabinets in this way come from thirty years of custom kitchen fabrication and home renovations. The process I will be discussing is recovering old Formica plastic laminate with new Formica. One of the most common questions people ask is; "does the old Formica get peeled off?" My answer is almost always; "no". The process involves roughing up the existing surface with sand paper and covering over the top of the existing plastic. Buying and Flipping Houses One of the things that I have noticed is that contractors, Realtors and people looking to make a few dollars from buying and selling houses, oftentimes will get estimates on resurfacing cupboards. Covering over the old laminate and installing new doors is a reasonably priced, quick fix way of remodeling an ugly kitchen or bathroom in comparison to installing new cabinetry. One of the BIG PROS of resurfacing is that a contract can be signed today and the cabinets be completed within four days. That is if there are not special order doors involved and the plastic laminate is available for next day delivery. Some Old Cupboards Still Have Wrinkles Even though your kitchen may get a face-lift on the outside, many things will still "mark" the cabinetry as being old. Things like water damaged areas around the sink, drawers that just dont move smoothly and dated materials used on the interiors of cabinets years ago will be noticeable. Even though the outside will look like brand new-the inside of the cabinets almost always show signs that they are older cupboards. How Good Will the New Surface Adhere? If your existing Formica laminate is adhered really well, then the chances of the new plastic staying secured to the old are really good. If you have several areas that are coming loose, then you will have problems down the road. Sure the installer can glue the loose areas down before gluing the new covering on top, but this is not going to stop the process of the old mica letting loose over the course of time. I would say that this is one of the biggest cons of recovering plastic laminate cabinets. Design Limitations What you see is what you get. There is not much that can be changed with an existing set of cupboards that are getting resurfaced. Sure, you can add a few drawers, maybe cut something down to make a new appliance fit and install a new cabinet or two, but the basic layout of the kitchen stays the same. Money Savings Comparisons There are several things that make kitchen cupboard resurfacing appealing to the home-owner seeking to remodel on a budget. For the most part, several thousand dollars can be saved. It is less expensive to resurface cabinets for several reasons: • Less materials are needed • Appliances do not need to be removed and re-installed • Electricians and plumbers may not be necessary • The amount of labor needed is a lot less when compared to fabricating a new set of cupboards In my experience, it seems like the pros and cons people get hung up on are the price savings and the design change limitations. They want to switch their kitchen cupboard layout a bit, but do not want to spend a lot of money for new cabinets. As previously mentioned, resurfacing does not allow for a lot of layout design changes. So, people have a tendency to find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place. Very often, what happens in these situations is that the customer, rather than choosing to replace or reface, decides to wait until they can afford to get everything new.

We spend so much time each day in our kitchens; therefore it is vitally important that your kitchen provides you with a happy-place feeling. How many times dont we end up spending a whole evening around the kitchen table? Whether it be reminiscing about our days with our family, or a game of poker with our friends, the kitchen often ends up being the living room. Kitchen hygiene is obviously very important. With frequent use, spills and food preparations, kitchens can show wear faster than they need to. So after youve scrubbed the sink and mopped the floor, your kitchen is clean, right? Wrong! Kitchen cupboards form a large part of your kitchen and should always be kept squeaky clean! There are great products on the market for cleaning your kitchen cupboards, but we all know that that is just a temporary solution. The grease, oil and fingerprints seem to reappear almost immediately. And lets face it; we cannot spend the whole day cleaning our kitchen cupboards (as that would interfere with our family /fun time around the kitchen table!). Invest in a kitchen cupboard restorer! We all know that certain shampoos and polish prevent dust from settling on our cars, and we even spray products on our bathroom windows to prevent them from steaming up... so why not give our kitchen cupboards the same respect? Most of these restorers wont cost you and arm and a leg and you will soon find that fingerprints, grease and oil will not take away your kitchens shine! When cleaning your kitchen cupboards on the inside, it is important to use a slightly damp, not soaking wet, sponge or cloth to wipe the surfaces. Then use a soft, dry cloth to make sure that there is no water left on the cupboard surfaces. This would end up warping the wood and leave the cupboard with a stuffy odor. If you have wooden kitchen cupboard, it is essential to treat the surfaces on a regular basis. Personal hygiene goes hand-in-hand with kitchen hygiene. Germs and bacteria hide on most surfaces that are touched, therefore washing your hands often is very important. Wipe up spills immediately after they occur - removing everyday spills and drips will prevent food and drink from staining your kitchen surfaces and is a good first step for a hygienic kitchen. A red wine spill poses no problem when wiped up immediately, but that same spill can leave a permanent stain if left for a couple of days. Clean your kitchen appliances and cupboards often! Also keep in mind that a lot of food products have expiry dates. Do not leave such products in your kitchen cupboards indefinitely! This is a sure way to attract all kinds of unwanted visitors - do not allow your kitchen cupboard to become a breeding ground for flying and crawling bugs! By following these simple tips, youll be able to spend many happy hours in your kitchen and be happy in the knowledge that your kitchen is a safe and hygienic place for family and friends to visit.
