Kitchen Cabinet Design for Comfortable Kitchens

Modern kitchen design has improved partly as a result of ergonomic research. Functionality is also very important. Kitchens are larger and have more cabinets; some kitchens may have as many as fifty drawers and cabinet doors. New features today include deep drawers for cookware, pull-out shelves to avoid excess bending, sponge trays on the front of sink cabinets, pullout hideaway garbage/recycling containers, pull-out spice cabinets, lazy susans in corner cabinets, vertical storage for cookie sheets, full-extension drawer slides, and drawers and doors with so-called soft-close/positive-close mechanisms enabling drawers to shut quietly, or which shut fully after being pushed only partially. As the housing stock gets older, many homeowners face problems with visually unappealing older kitchen cabinets; in such situations, there is a choice to buy new (most expensive), reface existing (less expensive), or strip and refinish existing (least expensive—if done by the homeowner) cabinets. The past 25 years the kitchen industry has led way to more emphasis on cabinets design. Considering Americans spend a large percentage of their lives indoors, it’s clear why this is a key issue in designing healthy spaces.

Solid wood is an effective choice for cabinet parts seen by people such as face frames, doors, drawer fronts, and so forth. Traditional-style solid-wood cabinetry remains popular, but consumers may compromise to achieve better value for the dollar. Among solid wood choices used for cabinet doors, cherry is more expensive than maple or oak in most cases. Solid wood is more expensive than plywood, which in turn is more expensive than particleboard or similar sheet goods. At Courey International we offer the Innova Classic Series of Cabinetry starting with our Palermo door. These offer a warm blend suitable to any traditional environment. We then proceed to our transitional styles with our Heritage & Milano doors. Last but not least we serve the contemporary settings of many modern structures with our Shaker door. Our doors are all mounted on a face frame system, which gives stability to the structure after it is built and installed.

Modern day cabinet boxes are usually made from plywood or high-quality particleboard, particularly for those flat sections, which don't need to be shaped, such as shelves, cabinet sides, or drawer bottoms. Stiffness and strength are important factors since cabinets are expected not to bend or sag and be able to support a heavy load. The best choices for strength are plywood and higher-quality particleboard. Stiffness increases rapidly with shelf thickness; regardless of material choice, a 3⁄4-inch (19 mm) shelf is 73% stiffer than a 5⁄8-inch (16 mm) shelf, though only 20% thicker. Shelves made of some particle board formulations, especially where not reinforced, may sag or deform. Particleboard strength and rigidity varies by formulation and is determined by the resin that binds together its wood particles. Plywood carcasses are usually assembled with screws and nails while particleboard carcasses do not hold screws or nails as well and therefore frequently use glue, groove joints, or mechanical fasteners such as confirmat-cam assemblies. Generally, plywood carcass cabinets are more expensive than particleboard carcass cabinets. We pride ourselves of offering a plywood box with our kitchen and bath line.

We hope that you will consider our products in your future projects. Our experience and capabilities do not stop at just supply & shipping. We can take your project from beginning to end to make this an easy experience for you. Our ultimate goal is to transform your living environment into a dream come true.
