Go to your kitchen for a moment and take a look around you – what is the most important element you see? In most cases, it will be the custom kitchen cabinets that enclose the space as if they were marking and defining their territory. The kitchen requires careful attention to planning and design, its style creates an aesthetic statement, and the location of the cabinets concerning the other components and appliances determines the flow in space.
The custom kitchen cabinets are at the heart of this important space. They are responsible for storing utensils, they are used as food pantries, and they provide a space to display decorative dishes. Properly designed kitchen cabinets serve as a practical and aesthetic asset for years. In matching cabinets and their interior sections you must address several factors: the nature of cooking behavior (cooking hours, lifestyle), people typically stirring the cauldron (individual tenant, couple, and family with children) and much plus. Features such as height, depth, opening shape, sliding drawers, baskets, security locks, etc., are the elements that dictate the internal design of the cabinets, so it is important to think about all the details in advance.
What is a kitchen cabinet made of?
The custom kitchen cabinets are constructed of the cabinet body and the cabinet facade. For the most part, the materials from which the body is made are a particle board (small wood fibers processed along with the addition of the glue) or sandwich board that is made of layers of wood glued together. These are called industrial woods and their quality depends on the type of glue and the density of the materials from which they are made. The MDF particle board is typically used for the interior of the drawers.
When talking about doors and their exterior cladding – the range can be exhausting. Here you can find, for example, solid wood or Formica/melamine/stainless steel/plated finish, a kitchen cabinet with its body made of sandwich board and an exterior sheet metal finish with drawers with a bottom. MDF is not recommended for wooden cabinet bodies because the raw materials are more expensive and often cannot withstand the natural moisture present in the kitchen and can be distorted by frequent temperature changes. There is a wide range of materials for the facade of the cabinet and a multitude of designs that, of course, can significantly improve the appearance of the kitchen. Among the materials available for the facades of kitchen cabinets.
Caesarstone quartz cladding:
Nowadays, using advanced technology, it is possible to cover the kitchen cabinets with Caesarstone quartz surfaces, which provide a decorative marble look. These unique coatings are available in a variety of textures, colors, and finishes. These are especially thin surfaces, up to a thickness of only 3 mm that does not weigh on the body of the cabinets and allow easy opening and closing of the doors.
The surface is made of plastic fibers processed in a mixture of hardness that sticks on plywood (industrial wood of compressed wood chips). The result is soft to the touch with a glazed finish.
A thin layer of wood attached to an MDF board. The design varies according to the level of brightness and the preferred texture (“natural wood” appearance, stripes and more).
