Cabinet Cleaning Tricks You Need to Know

Modern Master Bathroom

Grease, grime, and buildup can accumulate on the cabinets throughout your home. No matter if these items are in your kitchen or your bathroom, cleaning your cabinets should be a task that is placed regularly on your to-do list. While this may not seem like the most fun chore, properly cleaning your cabinets will not only keep your home looking its best but it will improve the lifespan of these items. 

Here are three cabinet cleaning tricks you should know to keep the cabinetry in your Denver home looking incredible. 

1. Use Water and a Mild Dish Soap

One of the best ways to clean your cabinetry is with water and a mild dish soap. At least once a month, if not more often, wipe down your cabinets with this mild solution. This will help to remove the grease and grime buildup. 

2. Create a Baking Soda Paste

To help remove tough build-up, baking soda can be your secret ingredient. Create a paste using a small amount of water and baking soda. Rub the paste along the areas of your cabinets that are experiencing the toughest stains and problem areas. After rubbing the paste all over with your finger or a soft rag, wipe it off with a damp rag. 

3. Use a Designated Cleaning Solution

For certain types of cabinets, such as wood, there are professional cleaning solutions available. However, if you choose to use these methods, talk to a professional cabinet company in Denver. You may receive recommendations for the best products for your cabinet materials. 

Keep in mind that when cleaning your cabinets, there are many solutions you should avoid. These mixtures contain harsh chemicals that can damage your cabinet’s finishing and strip the paint and shine off of them. For example, a few solutions you should avoid include: 


Strong detergents

Any solution containing ammonia

You can have cabinets in your Denver home that you love and will be the envy of all your guests. Contact us at The Kitchen Showcase for more information and to schedule a showroom visit. 

4 Things to Consider for Your New Bathroom Cabinets

Batroom remodels in Denver by The Kitchen Showcase

If you feel it’s time to renew your old, battered and dingy bathroom cabinets in your Denver home, keep these aspects in mind for a careful planning and to make sure that your time and money investments are worth it.

Use & Size

Cabinets are subject to more wear and tear, especially in the family used bathrooms. This means that generally speaking, guest bathrooms are used on a more occasional basis so the fixtures there may last longer. Do a thorough inspection of all the bath cabinets in your home and decide which ones are in need of a renovation.
Size is another important factor. Analyze how much cabinet space you need and how much of the room can be used for them. You can get complimentary advice from our professional bath designers at our showroom, and they can also help you design the new bathroom of your dreams!

Style & Functionality

You need to choose a style that you’ll love since you use your bathroom multiple times every day and you don’t want to hate it every time you go in. Nowadays there are many styles available, ranging from traditional to modern and contemporary. And remember that functionality goes hand in hand with style, so choose the options that allow a smarter use of the space available while making your bathroom beautiful at the same time.


Make sure you choose only quality cabinets, such as those made of solid wood or other reliable materials. This super important because you don’t want to have to repeat the remodeling due to low-quality cabinets that didn’t last. Also, consider the thickness of the cabinets, how sturdy the mounting hardware is and whether or not you can get a custom fit.


Once the vision for your new bathroom begins to take shape, you need to be clear exactly how much you can allow yourself to spend and work within the budget that you have. And we are the bathroom renovation experts in Denver to help you with that!

Kitchen Upgrades that Will Increase Your Home’s Value

You deserve the kitchen of your dreams. However, a kitchen remodel is not just about creating a visually appealing space, it can also increase your home’s value as well. Here are a few upgrades in this room that will have you seeing a few more dollar signs when selling your home. 

 Updating the Flooring

The flooring can make a huge difference for your kitchen. Whether you are choosing hardwood, vinyl, or tile, this one upgrade can turn an old and outdated space into a modern beauty. Plus, if you are selling your home in the near future, this is a major perk for many buyers.

Kitchen Upgrades

Old and worn-out cabinets can make this area of your home an eyesore. Cabinets placed in a poor layout can also make this area of your home appear closed and crowded. Installing new cabinets will give your kitchen a major facelift. You may also consider cabinets with bold colors to give your kitchen plenty of contrast and design. 

Gorgeous Lighting

A bright and well-lit kitchen creates an inviting space. It is also convenient for all of your meal prep needs. Installing additional lights throughout your kitchen is a great way to improve your home’s value and create a more welcoming and gorgeous space. You may consider adding accent lights or under-the-cabinet lighting. Large pendant lights over a kitchen island can also become a focal point in the space. 

New Appliances

Installing new appliances in your kitchen is a simple way to greatly improve this area of your home. This will not only improve the look of the space, but it adds new features and technology. Additionally, by choosing your products wisely, you can introduce styles and designs that complement one another and create a cohesive area.

The Differences Between Stone Countertop Finishes

Add an elegant touch to your kitchen or bath!

Nothing adds class and beauty to your kitchen or bathroom like natural stone countertops. They look beautiful and create a one-of-a-kind showpiece for your room. And if you want your new countertops to be even more unique, you can personalize them with a different finish. However, not all stone countertop materials have the same properties, so the additional finish will depend in large part on the characteristics of the stone of your choice.

Types of Stone Surface Finishes

We offer the following surface finishes for stone in addition to the factory finish: polished, honed, leathered, and caressed.  It is crucial to note that for countertop use, only those finishes are recommended! 
Some finishes are only available as factory finishes, which is put on the slab at the processing facility before being exported. It is generally polished for most marbles and granites and honed for most schists and limestones. Slates mostly come as a cleft face.


A polished finish is created when a stone surface reaches its most refined stage, and it is the standard factory finish for most granites and marbles. A polished surface is highly reflective and the least porous of the finishes available. This finish gives the stone a very elegant and rich look, providing it with a pinnacle depth of color.


This is the standard factory finish for schists and most limestones, most of which can’t take a polish. A honed finish refers to any level that is less than polished and therefore “grays out” or fades the color and shine of the stone, and it is more noticeable on darker materials than on lighter ones. Also, honing a polished material opens up the pore, making it more susceptible to staining than the same material in a polished finish.

This finish starts with a honed surface and then adds texture and closes the pores, retaining the color better than honing but still making it less glossy than polished. The process amplifies the natural characteristics of granite or marble, resulting in an exquisite surface. It is easy to clean and maintain, as well as, pleasing to the touch. Leathering is preferred to honing for blacks and other very dark materials.


This finish adds gloss to the leathered finish above by starting with a leathered finish and then “polishing” the high spots. This process closes the pores more than the leathered finish, but not as much as a polished one.

Kitchen Cabinets

Whether you are renovating your kitchen or bathroom or you simply need to upgrade your current products, you deserve cabinets that you love. They should be a focal point in your home and something that provides you with the storage, durability, and aesthetic appeal that you desire. 

Choosing your cabinets should not be a decision that is made impulsively. Ideally, you should visit a showroomas you make this important decision. Here are three reasons why.

1. You Receive a Hands-On Experience

When visiting a showroom, you can touch and feel the many cabinet options available. Not all products are made the same and you want to make sure you will be happy with your decision. This hands-on experience will make you more confident in your decision than if you were to choose products from a catalog. 

2. You Can View Many Options at Once

Custom Cabinets

Walking through a showroom gives you the chance to compare the many available options. For example, at The Kitchen Showcase, you can browse the nearly 40 room displays. This gives you the opportunity to decide what you do and don’t like when it comes to various products throughout your home. 

3. You Have an Expert at Your Side

When it comes to choosing the cabinetry in your home, you likely have many questions. For example, you may want to know the difference in material options, the care and maintenance of certain cabinets, the installation processes, prices, etc. No matter what question you may have, when you schedule a showroom visit, you have an expert at your side to answer all of your hard questions.

Custom Cabinets For Oddly Shaped Spaces and Floor Plans

Custom cabinets for oddly shaped rooms

Not every home is made up of neat little rooms with easy to fit furniture and cabinets. Some homes have rooms with quirky angles or tiny rooms with odd measurements. For oddly shaped rooms, factory-made cabinets won’t work. When you remodel an oddly shaped room, the only way to go is with custom-tailored cabinets.

Finding cabinets that fit each room

It’s usually the quirky little details that give a home character. However, finding furniture and cabinets that fit tight spaces, odd angles, and other obstructions like roof beams and columns can be a never-ending tale (and more often than not – with no happy ending). And just because a room is shaped weirdly, doesn’t mean that you don’t want to make the room functional, especially if we’re talking about a kitchen or a bathroom.

Remodeling challenges

There are many challenges when you remodel a kitchen or bathroom. But the biggest challenge is finding the right cabinets and countertops for an oddly shaped room. You need to think about creating storage space, as well as a workspace. And, you want to keep a good flow in the room so that it becomes an enjoyable space. The kitchen is especially challenging because it serves so many functions. A kitchen is more than just a kitchen, it’s a place for cooking, working, entertaining, and family time.

Custom cabinets and countertops

When you get custom cabinets and countertops, the product will be built to fit the room, so you don’t have to make the room fit around generic one-size-fits-all cabinets. Because, as we all know, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all when it comes to cabinets.

3 Tips to Keep Your Kitchen Cabinets in Tip-Top Condition

Kitchen Cabinets

Caring for your home’s kitchen cabinets shouldn’t be a chore you dread. By properly caring for these items in your Denver home, you will not only keep them looking incredible but you will also increase their lifespan. However, caring for your kitchen cabinets is much more than simply wiping them down. Here are three things you should do often to keep your kitchen cabinets in excellent condition. 

1. Repair Nicks or Scratches

Accidents happen. Your cabinets will experience a lot of daily wear and tear. It is important that you stay on top of these minor damages by making repairs promptly. If knicks and scratches occur, fix them as soon as possible. Also, visit with professionals about the proper care and maintenance for your specific cabinets. For example, some products may come with small touch-up kits that will make these repairs a fast and simple process. 

2. Line Shelves and Drawers

Your drawers and shelves can accumulate a substantial amount of dirt and grime. By lining these areas with protective materials, you protect your cabinets, regardless of what you choose to store. There are also many types of liners you can choose from such as adhesives, rubber, cork, or felt.

3. Be Cautious of Moisture

Excessive moisture can cause damage to your cabinets. For example, you do not want to lay wet towels over cabinet doors or release substantial amounts of steam from coffee makers, pressure cookers, etc., under cabinets. If you notice your cabinets are wet or have water droplets, which cabinetry near dishwashers or sinks is particularly susceptible, wipe them off immediately. 

If you want to breathe new life to your kitchen, consider installing new cabinets. Contact The Kitchen Showcase today in Denver, Colorado to schedule a showroom visit and to see how easy it is to create your dream kitchen.
