Water-resistance is the name of the game when it comes to outdoor cabinets. Your best options are stainless steel, marine-grade polymer, and teak. "Whichever type you choose, evaluate the quality by looking inside the cabinet unit," says Russ Faulk, vice president of product development for Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet. "Look at whether the cabinet has a full box around it, or if it‘s open at the top."
Cabinets are top of mind among homeowners considering kitchen remodels, and it‘s easy to understand why. The role of cabinetry in the finished look and function of the space is crucial to the success of a kitchen design and the enjoyment of spending time there. And since roughly 60 percent of an average kitchen‘s cost is spent on the cabinetry, choosing the right cabinets is a critical decision in remodeling and in new construction.
Though you keep the existing cabinet boxes, you will need to replace the doors, drawer faces and side panels for the best overall match. While you‘re at it, you might want to consider replacing the hardware as well. A new style and look for the handles, moldings and hinges can be simple and inexpensive, and it will make a huge difference in the overall feel of the room. You can find new hardware at any home improvement store or your local mom and pop store that specializes in refacing. Although you can have the job done professionally, refacing your kitchen cabinets is generally a good DIY project. You will need to decide whether or not you want to do the job with laminate, rigid thermofoils (RTFs) or wood veneers.
It‘s durable, weatherproof, and matches your grill, but not all stainless steel is created equal. Look for 304 stainless steel. "And check the rigidity," says Russ. "It should feel stiff, not flexible. Welded corners are the best, otherwise they can come apart if the patio or deck shifts."
