How do I Know If My Kitchen Cabinets are Good Quality?
Kitchen cabinets include many parts that bring high quality and aesthetics and provide efficient storage. All these parts add functionality, strength, and endurance to your chosen kitchen cabinets. So, checking them before buying your kitchen cabinets would be helpful.
1. The Construction Material
Your kitchen cabinets should be made of either plywood or particle board. While plywood is more expensive, it is also the strongest. On the other hand, particle board is also a good choice for people with low budgets. But, particle board can also be affected by moisture, which is less durable than plywood. It also cannot carry much weight as plywood material. So, the best kitchen cabinets will have plywood as their construction material.
2. Strong Back Panel
The crucial part that lets kitchen cabinets carry all that weight is their back panels. The back panel of your cabinets must have at least ⅜ inches of plywood. Having less than that rate of plywood or just particle board as a back panel can lead your kitchen cabinets to fall down.
You should reinforce the back with hanging rails if you have a weak back panel. Also, check if your kitchen cabinets are appropriately installed next to your wall. It can also disrupt the balance of your back panel.
3. Soft-Close Hinges
You cannot open or close the doors of your kitchen cabinets without hinges. Because of continuous usage, they tend to wear faster than any other parts. Soft-close hinges usually adjust in 6 ways, and their hinges are made of nickel plate on hardened steel.
Poor quality hinges usually can be adjusted in only 4 ways and do not close softly. They make noise whenever you are not too careful to close them gently. So, having a soft-close hinge is advised not only for functionality but also for physical reasons.
4. Soft-Close Drawer Glides
Like Soft-close hinges, drawers are also used continuously and must be high quality. The distinguishing characteristics of glides from hinges are that glides carry all the weight when pulled, whereas hinges only support the door weight. So, a good quality steel drawer is required if you don’t want whatever your glides hold to fall. A poor glide will also let the drawer be pulled fully. They can also get stuck easily, even with everyday use.
5. Warranty and Industry Certification
The warranty itself is not a physical sign of a high-quality kitchen cabinet. But, it demonstrates the brand’s confidence in its products and leads to ease of mind for buyers. Typically, there are two types of kitchen cabinet warranties that are offered.
One of them is the limited 5-year warranty, and the other is the limited lifetime warranty. Before buying the kitchen cabinets that you want, it is advised for you to check the warranty rules. Kitchen cabinets are not lifetime products; even high-quality kitchen cabinets last up to 15 years before revamping. So, a lifetime warranty shows the brand’s full confidence in its quality and is a rare property.
Industry Certification is also important for products. This certification creates a set of quality standards for cabinetry. Furthermore, certified products are more reliable than their counterparts in the market.
6. Customizability and Modifications
The customization shows the brand’s ability to cope with your demands and desires, which can be considered a sign of reliability and quality. Even though fully customizable kitchen cabinets can be expensive, there are semi-custom kitchen cabinets in which you can have a high-quality kitchen cabinet while maintaining your desired aesthetic and feeling.
7. Face Frames
Having kitchen cabinets with face frames or without them is totally optional. The frame is the cabinet’s part where the door is connected to the cabinet itself. It is a hardwood base that holds the attachments, such as hinges.
There is a significant difference between the aesthetic look of these two types. Frameless cabinetry is usually made of particle board which suggests poor quality. On the other hand, the frame reinforces the durability and strength of the cabinetry. Also, the installation period of frameless cabinetry can cost more than its counterpart because it requires precise professional work to be fitted appropriately.
8. Melamine Interior
Melamine is a waterproof substance, fire and stain resistant, and easy to clean. So, it is a perfect choice for kitchen cabinets that stores products that can damage the interior of a cabinet. Thanks to being very easy to clean and resistant to stains, you can also use detergents to clean it. Other types of interiors, such as wood, can be damaged easily by detergents or water. They can get stained or lose their durability because of moisture and other reasons.
9. I-Beam Installation
I-Beams are the reinforcement that protects the shape of the kitchen cabinets. These shapes can be disrupted by their weight for a long time. If this balance is lost, the kitchen cabinet can fall and damage your kitchen.
If I-Beams are not used, a cheaper alternative, triangular gussets, will probably be used. They are not as durable or strong enough to reinforce the balance. So, you should check if your semi-custom kitchen cabinets or custom cabinets have them.
10. Hardwood Dovetail Drawer Boxes
Drawers are a frequently used kitchen cabinets area; their side and middle parts connect with different methods. Dovetail Drawer Boxes are the strongest type of connection that uses interlocking teeth to attach the sides of the drawer. The other types of connections are traditional staples and notched butt joins. However, they are not as strong or durable as Dovetail Drawer Boxes.
