Anastasia Burns Base Cabinets January 16th, 2018 - 10:30:24
If your cabinets have whats called a four inch high toe kick feature, you may have the option of cutting this four inch height down to offset a small difference in the floor heights. Be careful as cutting too much can make the cabinets look squat. If the cabinets came with a detached set of toe kicks already framed, this makes leveling a great deal easier as well. Just lay out the base cabinet supports and check to see if they are level. Some shimming or minor cutting to provide perfectly sub-bases makes the base cabinet installation a snap. You need not worry whether each cabinet is level as the bases will automatically make it so.
Cost Each type of cabinet has a general budget that you can expect. Below are more details on each type and the expected price range for 10 x 10 standard cabinets. RTA cabinets are the least expensive. The frameless box and doors will be ¾ inch melamine and the drawers will have metal sides. Since you will be doing the installation, the cost of these is very low at approximately $70.00 per linear foot or $700.00 for your 10 x 10 standard. Stock cabinets have a major price increase with improved materials and they will be delivered and installed. The wood is generally ¾ inch hard board face frame and ½ inch particle board sides with hard board framed doors. Since you have a few more choices on finishes or stains, the price can range from $360 to $432 per linear foot or $3,600 to $4,320 for the standard measurements.
What is your choice? For those who like to add a touch of tradition to their bathrooms cabinet towers made of wood with carvings and designs are available. The accurate carvings used in such cabinets offer a royal look. Short cabinets that can be accommodated either below the sinks or the wash basins consume the least space. Though the ideal cabinet for any bathroom would be the narrow, long ones which can be placed either in the corners or mounted, the smaller ones fit to the size of the room and the budget too. The wooden cabinets are usually coated with special varnish that can withstand the wet and humid conditions of the bathroom and infestation of insects and bugs.
Why do you need a bathroom linen cabinet? It is not possible for all of us to construct huge bathrooms in our houses. It is in fact the smallest room of the house. Most of the space is consumed by a wash basin, bath tub, toilet commode, pipes and taps. In such situations bathroom linen cabinets help in holding bulky stuff such as bath towels, linens and wash clothes. Many people also use these cabinets to keep hair dryers, bathroom reading books, newspapers, lotions and creams. They are not just a decorative piece of every bathroom but also help in keeping the things set and managed well.
