As you begin your kitchen remodel, one aspect that will become readily apparent is that quality kitchen cabinets are an essential element of your design. Not only do quality kitchen cabinets serve the important practical purpose of storage, but they take up the most amount of real estate in your kitchen. This means they‘ll play a big role in determining the overall look of your space.
With laminate or wood veneers laid over the existing cabinet boxes, you can change the style, color, wood type—even the associated historical era. Those avocado green cabinets so popular in the 70s can be transformed into the contemporary sleek white of the 21st century. Those light, bright oak cabinets can become the regal dark of cherry wood, and vice versa. Within days your kitchen can take on the look of a complete renovation without the hassle, cost, mess and inconvenience of a full remodel.
Laminate is a highly processed, super-hard plastic that sticks to existing cabinet boxes with adhesive. You can buy this in sheets already coated with a self-stick adhesive; this is slightly more expensive, but also much more convenient and easier. As an alternative, you can apply the adhesive separately. Laminate is hard and durable, so it doesn‘t mold easily and can really only be used practically on very plainly styled cabinet boxes.
Modular cabinets typically come with several rows of pre-drilled holes for shelves to be placed by the individual homeowner depending on the height of shelf desired. Special wire storage drawers, dividers and other drawer inserts may also be purchased to address your kitchen storage needs.
