If your first impression of a kitchen with aluminium cabinets is that of an overall cold metallic feel, think again. The advancement in technology has made it possible to offer aluminium kitchen cabinets in a myriad of colors to complement any home theme. Erm..... minus a very woody and grainy wood theme.
In fact, the sleek premium finishes blended well with any solid surface or quartz kitchen top. And offers an elegant opulence when combined with mirror glass displays and down-light. It is also lightweight and more versatile than most wooden counterparts. The versatility of aluminium also offers more storage space for homes with smaller kitchen, Not forgetting its flexibility to provide more widths, depths and heights to internal storage. Which eventually means more efficiency and functionality to your kitchen.
For the most part, it's certainly befitting with any trendy homes designed with a touch of modern contemporary or Scandinavian theme in mind. Does that pique your interest in aluminium kitchen cabinets?
Obviously, every type and choice of materials you used for constructing your kitchen cabinet comes with its benefits and some possible disadvantages. As the saying goes, nothing is perfect. In the case of aluminium, since it is essentially metal in composition, you're bound to expect some sounds made from metal clanking on metal. However, investing in better quality hinges and soft closing drawers eliminate most of the sound made from contact.
And there is also the possibility of minor dents and scratches. This is remote in nature. But it could still happen. If you or your young ones decided to have a slam game and bump hard objects at the doors or frames of the aluminium cabinet, that could cause a regrettable dent. And the thing is, there is hardly any remedy to it.
In terms of design, should the theme of your kitchen falls under the traditional or country style, aluminium might not be your best choice as well. It is more suitable for modern themes like the contemporary or Scandinavian designs.
All in all, if you're like the average owner who do take care of your kitchen cabinet, the benefits of aluminium kitchen cabinets far outweighs these concerns about risks of dents or noise etc.
Hot & Humid
Aluminium kitchen cabinet is most suited for Singapore's hot and humid weather. Unlike it's wooden counterparts, aluminium never bend or warp over time because of the heat and moisture.
Aluminium is waterproof and totally resistant to water. Moisture and water droplets from kitchenware does not get soak into the material unlike wood. As such, you won't get to face damaged interior due to water.
Being highly resistant to heat and fire provides an additional layer of safety to your home. You will also never have to worry about getting burned marks or stains on your cabinets from accidental situations.
Anti - rust
With the prevalence of heat and moisture in our local climate, rust is one of those issues homeowners will have to face over time. The use of aluminium completely eliminates this concern.
While cleaning chemicals or food preparation spillage may actually damage your wooden cabinet, it is harmless to aluminium. Try leaving a splash of apple cider vinegar on your kitchen shelve. You'll know what it means.
The fact that it is non-porous and waterproof, qualities of metal, means it's not susceptible to pest infestations. You won't have to worry about termites chewing your aluminium cabinets.
The shine and color of aluminium doesn't get faded over time. All you need is just the occasional wipe with a damp cloth. You don't need any harsh cleaning chemicals unlike for stubborn stains on wooden cabinets.
Being non-porous eliminates the fear of your cabinet being the home of hidden bacteria and fungal breeding. Due to our climate, such micro-organism can thrive inside the dark hidden corners and causes a health hazard.
Wooden cabinets have a lifespan of around 10 - 15 years under normal usage. For homes where the kitchen is heavily utilized for daily cooking, it may be even shorter. Aluminium cabinets can easily last twenty to thirty years with minimal maintenance.
Ever smell the interior of a brand new wooden cabinet? We are not talking about the smell of wood. Most materials used for wooden cabinets emits toxic chemicals like formaldehyde and other volatile organic compounds. And these are also harmful with those with respiratory issues. Especially the young ones.
