How Under Cabinet Lighting Will Spice Up Your Kitchen!

under-cabinet-lighting

Kitchens are the stomping grounds for families across the world! It’s the one common room in the house where everybody goes; where issues like what movie to watch, which radio station to listen to, and fights over the TV remote take a backseat. For this reason and many others, the kitchen is usually the most expensive room in the house and the best in terms of return on investment when considering renovations. If you’ve been in or seen pictures of recently built homes, you’ll notice that among the countless amazing architectural and design improvements in modern houses, the kitchen stands out the most. One of the more visually pleasing upgrades to the contemporary kitchen is under cabinet lighting, and here are several reasons why you should consider treating your kitchen with this beautiful upgrade immediately!

RTA vs. Custom Cabinets

Who wouldn’t want a completely custom kitchen? The first thing that people think of when redoing their kitchen is the cabinets. However, custom kitchen cabinets can come with a steep price anywhere from $6,000 to over $20,000 and beyond depending on what extras you tack on. Many RTA cabinet lines offer an array of specialty cabinets that will give you the options you want without the hefty price tag. Check out our Ready-to-Assemble cabinets! But first, let’s compare.

Why Choose Ready-to-Assemble Cabinets?

The kitchen is often the center hub of a home. All of the cooking and most of the eating is done there, entertaining is done there, and family time collects there. That’s why you never want your kitchen to be out of date. If you’re looking to spruce up your kitchen what better way than updating the cabinets? Why consider Ready-to-Assemble (RTA) cabinets? You can find what you want at the price you need. Here are some factors to consider when talking about RTA cabinets.

Value

Why not buy custom-built cabinets? Custom-built cabinets are a beautiful luxury for any kitchen, but they come with a hefty price tag. With custom cabinets you often have to wait a long time from ordering before you receive them on top of the higher prices. You can get the same beauty from RTA cabinets at a fraction of the cost. RTA cabinets are perfect for any renovation on a budget.

Options

Not only are RTA cabinets reasonably priced but you also get tons of options. Because you can order them you don’t have to stick to the already assembled cabinets that stores may carry in a limited selection. When you walk into a home improvement store they will have cabinets you can pick out and take home right away, but you will be extremely limited on choices. With our huge selection of cabinets you will easily find what fits you and your home best.

DIY Friendly

If you are a Do-It-Yourself type then you will love RTA cabinets! RTA cabinets are easy to assemble yourself (but that doesn’t stop you from hiring a professional if that’s what you prefer). They come to your door and offer easy assembly and installation. If you are looking to update your kitchen on a budget this is the solution for you, especially if you love a project. We make it easy and simple for you to do it all yourself. We even have videos to help you along!

Style

With our selection you will have no trouble finding what fits you style. Here are some of our favorites…

Spring Cleaning Kitchen Cabinets

Spring is coming and that can mean only one thing: Spring cleaning! The place to start is with your kitchen. The kitchen is the hub of any home but it can also be the messiest. It is where we cook, bake, and eat. This is where we congregate as families and where we talk with friends over coffee. It seems like the perfect place to start, especially the cabinets.

Kitchen cabinets tend to get a little greasy from all of the cooking and activity. To give your cabinets that old shine try using oil. Mineral oil or even just vegetable oil takes the grease off of your cabinet surfaces but will also give them a beautiful sheen. But it’s not just the outside that matters.

Organization is the perfect way to keep away the clutter and mess. Among our products you will find any organization tool you might need. Whether your pots and pans are a clanking mess or your plastic ware are a cluttered avalanche every time you open the cabinet door, we can help. You can make next year’s spring cleaning easier by staying organized all year long. After a long, hard winter treat your home to a refresh with these helpful organization products and many more found at Custom Service Hardware.
