Two-pack polyurethane provides the most durable finish for kitchen cupboard. Unlike melamine, laminate, vinyl wrap, or wood veneer, two-pack polyurethane won’t bubble, chip, or peel away from the substrate.
Two-pack polyurethane is applied in the same manner as automotive paint. It comprises a two-part solution of a hardener and a paint, which is applied in a dust-free environment.
All doors and drawers in our DIY Kitchen & Laundries range feature a white, high-gloss two-pack polyurethane finish to provide superior quality and longevity. In our manufacturing process, we first apply primer paint to the HMR board, then apply two topcoats of two-pack polyurethane, which is baked in an oven between coats to dry.
White is by far the most popular colour for kitchen cupboards and has been for many, many years.
Unlike trending colours, white is timeless. It never goes out of fashion – it will still look current even ten or 15-years down the track.
White provides a blank canvas and complements any design style. Its clean-cut nature pairs well with the leading design styles, including Hamptons, contemporary, and coastal kitchens. Moreover, colour can be added via other elements such as the benchtop, splashback, and flooring.
The space above kitchen wall cabinets, (aka overhead cabinets) is called a bulkhead. Traditionally, bulkheads were added to kitchen designs to conceal cords and services such as ducted air-conditioning, but today, they are added for design aesthetics. They define the kitchen area in an open-plan setting and make a kitchen look finished.
White cabinets are the only colour cabinets to never go out of style. Colour trends come and go, but white cabinets are timeless. They will always be relevant and never go out of style. For this reason, we only stock white cabinets in our DIY Kitchen & Laundries range.
If you are looking to add colour to your kitchen or laundry, do it through your benchtop and splashback.
No. Not at all. Functionality and practically should trump your decision-making process when selecting both wall and base cabinets.
Consider where you want to put your bowels, plates, pots and pans, etc., and choose your cabinetry based on size requirements, irrespectively to the widths of the wall cabinet.
You do, however, want to make sure the overall width of the wall and base cabinets line up with each other.
For example, if you have four double 80cm wall cabinets, then you will want a base cabinet configuration that equals 320cm total length. This could be two double 80cm base cabinets and four 40cm base cabinets.
No. Not necessarily. If the kitchen and laundry are separate and not in sight of one another, you have a little more freedom in terms of design. However, if they do not match, they should at least be in theme with one another. A consistent design style should flow through your home.
For example, your kitchen may have white cabinetry with timber-look accents. It would be perfectly OK to reverse this and have the same timber-look in the kitchen for the laundry cabinets, with white accents.
No, this is not necessary. However, it is better to do so. If you have spills, the tiles will prevent water from soaking into the substrate. Moreover, if you decide to upgrade your cabinetry in the future, you won’t be restructured in size or choice to match the existing cabinetry.
