Ideas For Your Custom Cabinets in Hawaii
In-built Appliance Lift
Do you have bulky appliances taking up valuable counter space? With this easy pull of the shelf mechanism, your bulky appliance can be lifted right up to counter level. This appliance lift is ideal for mixers, slow cookers, air fryers blenders, and other bulky kitchen appliances.
Add a Lazy Susan
A Lazy Susan cabinet is ideal for storing frequently used supplies in the kitchen. The fact that it rotates save you time in searching for the right product behind everything else. Lazy Susans are popular in the corner of the cabinet as they allow for extra storage space easily accessible.
Pull-out Spice Rack
Spice racks are a simple but life changing addition to any kitchen. If you like cooking with spices you should know that keeping them next to heat and light will weaken the flavor. Conversely, a pull out rack provides the best way to store them. It also allows you to see every spice you have easily.
Soft Close and Push to Open
This features are related with the type of hinges installed. Push to open cabinets are trendy, while soft close is more for protection. The hinges will ensure the door/drawer shuts smoothly and silently. Both are safer for kids. Soft close cabinets will increase the durability of your cabinets.
Built-in Wine Rack
If you appreciate wine you should consider a built-in wine rack. There are many options from open to closed cabinets. Regardless, the main thing is to keep the wine away from light and other kitchen appliances if possible. Other creative ideas to store and display wine are pull out wine shelves.
Choose the Best Material for Your Oahu Kitchen Cabinets
Hardwood or solid wood is the most popular and desirable kitchen cabinet material in general. Indeed, it is the most durable and customizable material in the market. Common types include red oak, white oak, hickory, cherry, hard maple, among others. People like to match it with hardwood flooring installation too. However, did you know that wood expands if exposed to water? For example, for a beach-front house the wood you should consider is HDF (high density fiberboard) which is more resistance to water and humidity.
✔ Highly strong and most durable
✔ Variety of types, colors, and designs
✔ Easily adapted to different styles: traditional, contemporary, or modern
✔ Always trendy
✔ Longest life span from all materials
✔ Most expensive if higher quality
⊝ Not waterproof
⊝ Prone to humidity
⊝ Prone to termites, especially in Hawaii
⊝ Wood denting if not good quality
⊝ Installation is more difficult
PVC (poly-vinyl chloride) cabinets can be made of foam or hollow boards. Foam boards are preferred as they are usually insulated against heat and are fairly fire resistant. This is a favorite for kitchen and bathroom remodeling in Oahu.
✔ Very trendy currently
✔ Easy to clean
✔ Good Durability
⊝ Not resistant to fire
⊝ Shorter life span than hardwood
⊝ Less options for customization (flat panels)
⊝ Need to use hardware and hinges compatible with plastic to prevent deformities
Plywood and Laminates
Plywood is popular in Hawaii due to the cheaper cost. To achieve their lifetime without damage they need to be properly finished with a quality laminate or paint and be free from water or significant humidity.
✔ Easy to clean if finished properly
✔ Different grades have different durability
✔ Not particle board (the least durable material you can get)
⊝ Risk of termite and pest attack
⊝ Shorter life span
⊝ Easy to scratch
