Adding classy wooden cabinets to your kitchen not only gives you plenty of storage space to stack things neatly, but they also give them a simplistic and contemporary touch, by freeing up space and making your kitchen look uncluttered. Calgary kitchen cabinets usually come as modular units that are already pre-assembled by the dealer or the manufacturer. If you are looking at a complete kitchen renovation Calgary does have a few home-décor outlets, which allow you to customize the number and kind of cabinets that you want in your kitchen, so it is perfectly matched.
In most modular kitchens in Calgary kitchen cabinets are ordered in terms of their sizes and shapes. There are separate drawers and cabinets for food items, cutlery, knives and other kitchen apparatus. When it comes to kitchen renovation Calgary has really made a name for itself. With wood being an abundant natural resource, it is not uncommon to see elegant kitchen cabinets fashioned from the finest maple and oak wood that can last decades, if treated with a bit of care. Good quality wood is the prime constituent of most Calgary kitchen cabinets. This is ideal because it has a lot more strength and resistance to termites and mould than those made of particle boards, compressed sawdust or even plywood.
The constituents of a typical kitchen cabinet are:
- The Cabinet Face or front door.
- The body of the Cabinet
- The Doors
- The frame of the cabinet
While renovating your kitchen, it is important to ensure that the laminates and veneer used are of good quality, high strength and are applied in sufficient quantity; especially in case of ply or particle board. Though particle board modular kitchens are cheaper than solid wood, they require replacing every 15 years or so due to which prime maple wood is still the material of choice in the majority of kitchen renovations Calgary sees. The best part about using wood is that it can be polished and varnished as often as required to bring out the original shine which is not the case with any other compressed wood or synthetic material.
Why renovate your kitchen?
More and more people are spending the majority of their time indoors these days, so it is important that the indoors are kept in perfect condition. A perfectly remodelled kitchen not only is an addition to your home’s beauty but is also instrumental in ensuring that time spent in the kitchen feels rewarding rather than drudgery. Moreover, the kitchen is exposed to a lot of gases from cooking food and water vapour which often dulls polished surfaces and makes your existing cabinets look drab.
