May 15, 2022

The kitchen is furnished, the interior designer is magical, and you have glistening cabinets. Now what?

Now, it’s all about that cabinet maintenance!

Keep your cabinets as fresh and as new as the way they were installed.

We’ve drawn up a list of 5 things you should do to maintain that cabinet of yours. Check them out now!

 

Go Easy on The Cabinet Doors

Close your cabinet doors with great precision and slowly! This will aid you immensely in maintaining your cabinets.

 

If there’s a repetition of banging cabinet doors in your house, eventually, hinges become loose and the doors won’t be working effectively anymore. Be gentle with your cabinets; you’re going to be using them all the time.

If you want to be extra careful, you can add small bumpers on your cabinets to prevent the doors from slamming on the frame.

 

Frequent Cleaning

Cabinets that aren’t cleaned frequently will eventually be replaced. And sadly, a lot of people neglect to clean their cabinets.

 

Oil and grease tend to ruin even the best quality wood, and so much more. If grease and stains aren’t cleaned every day, they will seep into the wood and will reduce its value. Unfortunately, there’s no way to avoid oil and grease in the kitchen.

 

So, grab that cleaning brush and clean all those cabinets regularly! There are great cleaning solutions for the oil that seeps into the cabinets. Regular cleaning detergent works fine, but explore your options. It’s really important to keep your cabinets clean for maximum, long-term use.

 

Get a Kitchen Fan

Kitchen fans are a lifesaver. Not only will they help you keep a breezy environment in your kitchen, but they’ll also help you maintain your kitchen cabinets. If you want to keep things modern, you can install a range hood too.

 

Cabinets get ruined over time from steam and constant humidity. A kitchen fan will help you avoid this. It will get rid of humid air and moisture, making sure that your cabinets are protected.

In a kitchen where cooking is always taking place, smoke will slowly seep into the cabinet’s walls and doors. Kitchen fans remove and restrict the smoke from piling up in thin and thick layers over your walls and will make sure your cabinets are smoke-free. They also prevent mildew and mould from growing in these places.

 

Repairs Should Be Your Main Priority

When it comes to repairing the cabinets, ensure that you’re taking care of them immediately. The damage might not seem like a lot at first, but because you’re using your cabinets all the time, the damage can grow quickly.

 

Eventually, the problem may get out of hand, and the damage might be irreversible and costly. If you see something that needs fixing, nip it in the bud before the repairs become too expensive.

 

Use High-Quality Materials Only

If you want to maintain your cabinets in the best shape and make sure they have a long life, start with installing high-quality materials! You’ll be spending less on repairs, cleaning, and more.

 

Cabinets made from quality materials tend to stand the normal tear and wear factors. Again, you’re using the cabinets so often, and buying quality materials will prove to be a good investment in the long run.

When it comes to the construction of your cabinets, don’t hold back.
