Updating kitchen wooden cabinets Hotpornfree
Drawer tracks should always be upgraded to either Blum’s Blumotion tracks or the equivalent and drawer boxes should be solid wood dovetail drawers with a captured plywood bottom.
Soft close doors are a nice feature as well as full depth shelves.
Even some more expensive framed cabinet lines will need to be upgraded to this minimum level of construction quality.
A plywood box is superior construction wise but will not work with some of the high gloss laminate and foil finishes that are popular in the European style cabinetry.
With these finishes only particleboard sides are possible.
Knowledgeable cabinet professionals usually agree on a few things.
First, that the more streamline frameless cabinetry looks better with modern door styles because of how close the drawers and doors are. Second that Traditional and Shaker style doors look equally well in both framed and frameless cabinet lines.
And thirdly, that a well made framed cabinet is a much more durable cabinet.
