Ross’s Home Discount Centre offers a range of high-quality bathroom vanities and kitchen and laundry cabinets. Should you have a question in relation to our cabinets, please look for the answer below before getting in touch with us.

  • What is the best finish for kitchen cupboards?

    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.

  • What material is best for kitchen cabinets?

    HMR (Highly Moisture Resistant) board is the best material for kitchen cabinet carcases. HMR board is melamine with a special resin added to it to make extra moisture resistance.

    All carcases in our DIY Kitchen & Laundries range are manufactured from HMR board to provide superior longevity.

  • What is the most popular colour for kitchen cupboards?

    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.

  • What is the space above the kitchen cabinets called?

    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.

  • How deep are overhead kitchen cabinets?

    Overhead kitchen cabinets can come in a range of sizes, which are relative to the manufacturer. At Ross’s Discount Home Center, our wall cabinets have a standard depth of 30cm and vary in width.

    Our standard sizes include, but are not limited to the following:

    • 15cm Width x 30cm Depth x 60cm Height
    • 20cm Width x 30cm Depth x 60cm Height
    • 30cm Width x 30cm Depth x 60cm Height
    • 45cm Width x 30cm Depth x 60cm Height
    • 60cm Width x 30cm Depth x 60cm Height
    • 80cm Width x 30cm Depth x 60cm Height
    • 90cm Width x 30cm Depth x 60cm Height
    • 90cm Width x 35cm Depth x 35cm Height
    • 100cm Width x 35cm Depth x 35cm Height
    • 120cm Width x 30cm Depth x 60cm Height
  • What colour cabinets never go out of style?

    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.

  • Do wall cabinets have to line up with base cabinets?

    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.

  • Do laundry room cabinets need to match kitchen 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.

  • How much are laundry room cabinets?

    Laundry room cabinets vary in price depending on size and configuration.

    Our range starts at $450.00 for a Base Unit Double Door 60cm and goes up to $1,150.00 for a Single Door Pull Out Pantry/Linen Cupboard 60cm.

    Besides laundry room cabinets, you can also opt for a laundry unit and sink combo. These are a cost-effective all-in-one option, which ranges in price from $280 for a Project 45PP Laundry Unit, to $1,280.00 for a Bloom Laundry Cabinet & Sink.

  • Do I need to tile under the laundry cabinets?

    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.
