3 Features To Put In Your Kitchen Cabinets
If you’re remodeling your kitchen, then contractor kitchen cabinets are often a significant factor, if not the most expensive. There are many things you can do to improve your cabinet situation, and these three features may make a big difference in your daily usage.
Soft Close Drawers
It’s a subtle feature, but it’s a welcome improvement to kitchen quality of life for those who have it. Drawers in kitchen cabinets can make a lot of noise, especially if you’re in a rush and quickly opening and shutting things. One premium feature you can build in is “soft close drawers.”
These let you shut drawers quietly, without any loud slamming that can sometimes be heard throughout the house. It makes for less stress and more peaceable food preparation.
Over Travel Slide
Another handy drawer feature is known as “over travel slide.” With many kitchens, drawers are confined within the track laid out for them to slide. This means that when you pull open kitchen drawers if you have any items you want to retrieve at the far end, you’ll have to reach into the drawer itself to get it.
Over travel slide has tracks that extend, meaning the entire drawer can slide out for full access. Putting in or pulling out very long items, such as knives, makes for a safer, more comfortable, more efficient kitchen experience.
Under Cabinet Lighting
An overhead ceiling light is standard in most kitchens, but when you’re doing delicate or intricate food preparation work, sometimes clear, unobstructed, bright light is the better, safer option. Placing lighting systems under kitchen cabinets is a perfect way to get bright, clear light without your own shadow cast over what you’re working on.
It’s a small feature, but it can make a huge difference and add more ease and convenience for your contractor kitchen cabinets once correctly installed.
