Kitchen cabinets are exposed to more dirt, bacteria and grease more then any other area in the home. Summit Kitchens & Fine Cabinetry would like to give you some help on how to properly clean your kitchen.
For everyday care and cleaning we recommend wiping down your kitchen cabinets and counter tops with a damp towel. Give special attention to areas around the sink and dishwasher. When it comes to your cabinets you can also clean any finished wood cabinets with mild soap and water solution. Take a slightly dampened cloth to wipe down the finish wood, making sure to dry the cabinets afterwards. Not only should you be cleaning your kitchen cabinets but you should also clean your kitchen hardware. Cleaning your kitchen hardware is simple just take a dry cloth and wipe down the handles to get the grease off of them. To clean the hinges on cabinet doors take a cotton-tipped swab to get the dust off. Some cleaning products you should avoid are ones with harsh chemicals, abrasive cleaning products such as tub & sink cleaning, solvent based or petroleum based products and bleach or cleaning products that include bleach.Read More
Every room in your house tells a story about you and your life, what does your kitchen say about you? Your kitchen shouldn’t be just about your cabinets and kitchen islands, you should also pay attention to detail likes kitchen accessories. Some kitchen accessories that people should focus on are hood ranges, wine racks, backsplash, pullout shelves and spice racks. Having a custom hood range built has a couple of great benifits. It allows you to add contrast to your kitchen like an island or a feature wall, but mainly it hides the look of a large stainless hood fan. A larger hood fan is a common request for kitchens that cook a lot or cook spicy foods. These larger fans remove the smells more efficetly that come from cooking, hood range can be customized to your kitchen and personal style. Another popular accessories thats on trend in kitchens are wine racks. A wine rack has a advantage over most other forms of bottle storage because you can tailor them to your taste. The wine rack can be completely customized to match your kitchen cabinets and kitchen style. One last kitchen accessory you should think of to help organize is a spice racks. Drawer spice storage is a very good option because you will not only keep your spices organized but also keeps them hidden from plain sight. Keeping the spice rack next to your range for easy access for cooking. When planning for your next kitchen up grade think about what kinds of kitchen accessories you might want and need.Read More
