Think of choosing kitchen cabinets as a long-term investment and do not shy away from quality – a solid frame and durable slides and hinges will make life easy for anyone involved in your kitchen. The hardware in a kitchen is hidden in your cupboards and drawers but is considered to be the backbone of the kitchen. An international range of brands is available at different price ranges, but they offer different quality and guarantees.
According to the Kitchen Specialists Association (KSA) fittings should form approximately 8% – 18% of the total cost of the kitchen. ‘”By paying a little more attention to your hardware choices you can seriously increase the longevity and functionality of your kitchen,” according to the KSA. And if you consider that people at Optima Kitchens have decades of experience of paying more attention to choices you make, you’ll feel that you are in good hands. According to the KSA, it is in space-saving that hardware really comes into its own.
“There is now a multitude of products that can assist with the organisation and maximization of space in your kitchen. Handles are one of the most important aesthetic elements in your kitchen and influence the overall look of the kitchen. Handles will be used every day and will have to endure dirt, damp and a lot of wear and tear. Choose a design not only for its looks but also for its practicality and durability.”
