Benefits of RTA Cabinets

Benefits of RTA Cabinets

Kitchens are the heart of the home. We prepare meals for our families on the counters. We help our children with their homework at the table. We learn about each other’s day over dinner.  We create unforgettable memories in our kitchens. In addition to having an emotional attachment to this room, the kitchen is the most valuable space in your home. Kitchen upgrades add more value to your home than most other rooms. Recent studies show homeowners with recently updated kitchens reported having a healthier lifestyle, cook more at home and have more family time since the remodel. You may be thinking “that sounds great, but I can’t afford a new kitchen”. That may be the case. We completely understand.

How to Keep Kitchen Cabinets Looking New

How to Keep Kitchen Cabinets Looking New

Kitchen Cabinet Care New kitchen cabinets can add a beautiful element to your kitchen design while adding storage space. And when they’re first installed, you probably can’t stop admiring how sparkly clean and shiny they are. There’s a sense of pride home owners take in new kitchen cabinets. However, cabinets are used everyday, multiple times a day and that can quickly add wear and tear. Dirty fingers open them for a snack, they get slammed, left open and probably get splattered with grease and food.  How to Keep Your Cabinets Looking New Without proper care, your investment will lose their appeal over time.Here we will teach you how to keep kitchen cabinets looking new for their lifetime. 1. Proper installation is imperative. All cabinet drawers should close easily and doors should line up correctly. If your drawers and doors are slightly ajar, dust and debris will build up, making it harder to clean later on. Proper alignment also helps prevent pets, bugs or rodents from getting in and damaging cabinets. 2. Cabinet cleaning should be worked into your regular cleaning schedule. It is recommended that cabinet door fronts get wiped down every few days. The longer you put this off, the harder it will be to clean as surface stains harden over time. 3. Never use cleaning chemicals on cabinetry. These cleaning products can contain ammonia or other harsh chemicals that can destroy cabinet finish. They leave a build up that is often mistaken for grease, which will lead to more product use, which will lead to more buildup. When using a cleaner on your knobs or handles, spray...

Is Stainless Steel Out of Style?

Stainless Style Style trends change often, especially when it comes to kitchen decor. Stainless steel however, has been a top appliance choice for over 20 years. Will the trend continue or is stainless a thing of the past? With an influx of new appliance finishes like mixed metal and colored finishes giving homeowners more flexibility and personalization options, can stainless stand the test of time? Simply put, yes. According to a recent Houzz study, stainless steel remained the leader for appliance finishes – with a whopping 69%!  At Cabinets Made EZ, we believe the reasons this are simple… Stainless steel looks good with everything. No matter what cabinet color or finish you have – white, mahogany, light wood – stainless will match it. In recent years black stainless steel was introduced and is continuing to grow in popularity, adding to the sustainability of stainless appliances. Stainless doesn’t just compliment colors – it fits into every design style from traditional to contemporary, mid-century to modern.   Stainless steel lasts! The average life expectancy of refrigerators is 9-14 years, 13-17 years for ovens/ranges and 7-10 years for dishwashers. This is longer than most of us will own the same car! Stainless steel is designed to endure wear and tear through daily use. Contributing to the long lifespan of stainless is the fact that it is almost completely rust-proof and scratch-resistant. Discoloration won’t happen and your new shine will be there in 10 years!   Stainless is relatively easy to care for. Because stainless in non-porous, simply wiping it with a damp cloth will likely keep your appliances clean. The non-porous surface...

Backsplash Design

The Purpose of Backsplashes Backsplashes serve a functional purpose in your kitchen, but in 2019 fun backsplashes are the rage. By definition a backsplash is a vertical extension to a counter – typically kitchen or bathroom counter – which protects the wall from unintended splashes of water, protecting the wall from water damage. Generally consisting of tile, backsplashes are started directly behind sinks and can extend the entire length of the wall. Backsplashes give you an easy way to put your personal style on your kitchen or bathroom. Tile is no longer a must have when it comes to wall protection – and neither is the standard placement. In 2019 we will see a lot more ceiling high backsplashes. Here is a list of our favorite backsplash designs! Sheet glass – This trendy backsplash prevents damage to the glass design element by having the back of the glass painted. By adhering the painted side to the wall, it is almost impossible to scratch. Large tiles – Standard tiles (3”x6”) have been the norm for decades. But not anymore. More homeowners think bigger is better – and we agree. The larger the surface area of a tile, the easier it is to clean and replace if damaged. We recommend this style for smaller kitchens since they create an illusion of more space. Slabs – Feel free to ditch the tile and individual pieces for one large sheet. Marble (or imitation marble) is gaining popularity, mainly because of its unique look. Continue the marble design from your countertop or choose a contrasting color. The possibilities are endless. The best part of...

Kitchen Wine Storage

Believe it or not, wine was once associated with the elite or European. Sipping a nice glass of Pinot, aged perfectly and just retrieved from the wine cellar – Fancy. Not anymore.  Wine decor is found in every store and wine and paint nights are the new “Ladies Night”. Less expensive wine has made wine a must have in American households. Which brings up the question – how do you store wine? Kitchen wine storage options are growing, allowing you to keep your wine close by in a stylish, organized way.  Here are some great wine storage ideas! TOE KICK DRAWER: Sunlight can ruin a perfectly good bottle of wine. UV Light prematurely ages wine, which is why you often see it stored in dark bottles that act as a protective barrier.  By keeping wine in a toe kick drawer under your kitchen cabinets, wine will be safe from any sun damage. BUILT-IN RACK: Wine is designed to be stored on it’s side. This allows the cork to stay wet, keeping oxygen out. If air gets into your wine, it can prematurely oxidize rendering it undrinkable. Built-in wine racks allow you to properly store wine on it’s side while keeping the design integrity of your kitchen. WINE COOLER: A wine cooler is essentially al refrigerator built specifically to keep wine cool. Wine coolers come in all sizes allowing you to choose one that fits your wine needs and also fits into your kitchen. Oftentimes wine coolers are built-in under the counter, similar to a dishwasher.  This eliminates the common error of storing wine on the counter top where oven...

Cabinet VS Cupboard and Other Fun Facts

Cabinet vs Cupboard – the age-old debate. To some the difference between a cabinet and cupboard is the same as a potato and, well, another potato. By Miriam-Webster’s definition the two are very similar: Cabinet: a case or cupboard usually having doors and shelves Cupboard: a closet with shelves where dishes, utensils, or food is kept While the two words are practically interchangeable, the basic consensus is that the difference in description seems to be in 1. Shelves – cabinets don’t have them, cupboards do and 2. Cupboards are used for specific items while cabinets are non-specific. Does the terminology really make a difference? Simply put, No. At Cabinets Made EZ, we will be sure to get a clear description of what you are looking for to design your perfect space. But, since we all enjoy a little bit of “useless knowledge”, take a look at some more fun cabinet facts – you’ll never know when they will help you win a trivia game! -Cabinets were invented in the 1910s – and over 2 million were sold by 1920. -Late 15th-century cupboards for food storage had ventilating holes. -Ready to Assemble (RTA) Cabinets were invented in 1956 by Gillis Lundgren. -Wood replaced steal cabinets in the 60s. -In the 17th century a heavy form of cupboard, in which the panels were raised, and three evenly spaced twisted columns supported a heavy cornice, the whole resting on squat bun feet were in demand. -Steel kitchen cabinets were very common during war times giving steel factories domestic work. -The most popular kitchen cabinet colors of the 1930s were black, red and...
