So you’ve splashed out on a new kitchen, but how to keep that crisp and clean when you’ll be busy cooking, eating and spending time in it? Here is some helpful guidelines that you can follow:
Melamine Doors and Panels
With these maintenance-free cabinet doors and panels, you won’t have to worry about the natural warping or fading overtime that comes with wooden doors.
Veneer & Solid Wood Doors and Panels
Generally, veneer and solid wood cabinet doors and panels will have a varnish or lacquer finish which is designed to protect the natural wood from moisture, which can cause cracks and discolouration. This means that it’s actually fairly easy to keep wood kitchen doors looking good.
High-gloss and Ultra-gloss Doors and Panels
Although these doors and panels are the ultimate in modern, minimalist design; finger marks, spots and spills really show up.
Painted / Duco Doors and Panels
High-gloss or semi-gloss painted or Duco finish are more durable and easier to wipe clean than satin or matte finish, but take care not to use anything so harsh that you end up striping the paint or damaging the finish.
