When thinking about remodeling your kitchen you should take a good look at the cabinets you are considering. Cabinets are often overlooked but they are one of the most important aspects of your kitchen. There are a few things to consider when selecting cabinets.

Construction:
How well are your cabinets made? A quality drawer should not be glued or stapled together. Look for solid wood drawers with dovetail joinery. This is a sign of furniture-grade craftsmanship. Check to see if the drawer glides are on the bottom. Many drawers have glides on the sides but over the years they will collect dirt and start to jam when you open or close them.

Wood
There are so many woods available for cabinets. There is maple, cherry, alder, teak, etc. Do not settle for birch simply because it is cheaper or you have been told that it looks like maple or cherry. It doesn’t. You will feel the grains on birch regardless of how much the installer sands or paints the cabinets. The savings for birch are not worth the quality.

Consider the finish that will be on the cabinets. Both of our cabinet lines have a high-conversion varnish and have baked-in stains for uniformity. They are easy to clean and are not prone to discoloration or peeling.

Warranty:
Inquire about the warranty that your cabinets will have. A good warranty for cabinets is a lifetime. This shows the manufacturer is confident in their product and will warrant their cabinets if there is a product defect. Both of our cabinet lines carry a lifetime warranty.

It is time to get informed about what you are putting in your home. You should enjoy the best. And understand that the best does not always mean that it is the most expensive.
