Bring the Best Out of Your Cabinets with These Cleaning Tips

Best Tips to Clean Your Kitchen Cabinets

Sometimes you need a kitchen remodel, and sometimes, a thorough cleaning of your kitchen cabinets can bring new life to your kitchen. Cleaning your cabinets might seem like a bit of an undertaking, but if you know how to do it right, it will save you a lot of time and energy. Plus, it will help you get the results you’re looking for. Cut back on cleaning time with these kitchen cabinet cleaning tips:

Empty Your Cabinets

A thorough cleaning starts with empty cabinets. Emptying your cabinets sounds like a chore, but this step will make your life a lot easier in the long run. Before cleaning your cabinets, take time to empty and reorganize them. Then go ahead and dust off the cabinets, and the cans and containers you had in them. That is the best way to keep them organized and have easy access to everything you need.

The Best Tips to Clean Your Kitchen CabinetsAvoid Cleaning with Chemical-Heavy Products

Whatever you use to clean your cabinets might come in contact with everything in them, like your food, utensils, and containers. Cleaning with non-toxic products is the best idea. Anything made from natural ingredients is excellent. Some all-purpose cleaners work. You need to check the ingredients. You can also create your own cleaning solution with some liquid soap and warm water. It will help remove dirt and grease and not damage the finish on your cabinets.

Clean Inside and Out

It’s not just the outside that counts. Of course, cleaning the exterior is very important, since it’s the most exposed to dust and grease from cooking, and the accumulation of that can affect your cabinetry finish. But cleaning the interior is just as important, so take advantage of the fact that you’re emptying your cabinets and clean the inside with your cleaning solution to get rid of any crumbs and residue. Remember to wipe down both the exterior and the interior with a damp cloth at the end, to remove the soapy solution.

Make It a Regular Thing

The first cleaning will definitely take the longest, but to maintain the look and make your hard work pay off, don’t let too much time go by without cleaning your cabinets again. If you start doing it regularly, it will become easier and quicker. Once a week would be ideal. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to restore your cabinets to their original look.

2019 Kitchen Trends

As incredible as it may be, 2018 is behind us and 2019 brings tons of new things, even in kitchen design. That doesn’t mean that everything we saw in 2018 is now out, it just means that there are more things to be excited about. So, if you’re looking for inspiration for your next kitchen remodel or are just here for the details, there are some of the kitchen design trends we will see this year:

Sleek Finishes and Contrasting Textures

The interesting combination of contrasting textures —think marble work tops, matt cupboards, and bronze details— will add tons of life to any kitchen, while the sleek finishes will make it seem clean and modern

Tall Backsplashes

Tall backsplashes in stones like marble will create a regal look and it’s the perfect way to fancy up your kitchen.

Mixing Modern and Classic

Warm and welcoming, yet clean and chic is what the mix of modern and classic will bring to the table. The best of both worlds can be done and will be seen a lot this year.
2019 Kitchen Trends

Matte Black Finish

Matte black has been a favorite when it comes to hardware accents and other kitchen finishes. In light colored kitchens, it’s provides balance while looking strikingly beautiful, fresh and bit dramatic.

Raw Materials

Adding some wood, jute, stone, and shiplap details will become a staple throughout 2019. Basic modern kitchens are the perfect canvas for these details to come alive. Also, leather and wood drawer pulls will make their way into kitchen design to satisfy people’s need to include organic materials in their design, while adding a subtle detail that still packs a punch.

Creating the Perfect Countertop-Backsplash Combo

Kitchen backsplash

How to Match Your Countertops and Backsplash?

When you’re working on your kitchen or bathroom design, certain elements are natural to choose because you, most likely, had them pictured in your mind for a while, like the color of the walls or the type of appliances.
When it comes to choosing countertops and backsplash, the decisions tend to get a little more complicated. Maybe you’ve been thinking of a specific type of countertop but never considered a backsplash or vice versa. The “perfect” combination is subjective, so it will really depend on what you want and how you make it harmonious.

Kitchen backsplashStrategy #1: Neutral + Pattern or Color

This is often the go-to for many people. Having one surface that has either a neutral color or a pattern, and then one other surface that has the opposite. For instance, you could have a black granite countertop and pair it with a colored or patterned tile for the backsplash.

Strategy #2: Two Patterned Surfaces

Although this might seem like too much, if you choose wisely, the result could be incredible. If you decide to go with something like marble countertops, something like a stone mosaic could be great for a contrasting backsplash. This works particularly great with natural stones and neutral colors.

Strategy #3: Match Your Countertops to Your Backsplash

If you love the material and color of your countertops, why not extend it and create a continuation that will add visual impact?
The way you decide to mix and match your countertops and backsplash depends on your taste, your kitchen design, and many other details. For achieving the kitchen of your dreams, the best thing you can do is have your project managed by a team of professionals. Our design team at The Kitchen Showcase, can bring your remodeling visions to life. Let’s talk and get started.

A New Kitchen Will Increase the Value of Your Home

Denver kitchen remodeling services

There is one renovation project that every homeowner should consider, and that’s upgrading or remodeling their kitchen. Even if you’re not looking to sell your home right now, know that a new kitchen will add instant value to your home. If you are looking to sell, a kitchen remodel will yield the best return on interest, and may even help you sell your home faster.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and one of the first rooms that potential buyers will want to inspect.

Everyone looks at the kitchen first

When people are looking at homes, the first room that potential buyers will beeline to is the kitchen. That’s because the kitchen is the heart of the home, and is the most frequently used room in the home. A kitchen is multi-functional, being both a place to cook, but also a place to entertain and spend quality time with family. Remodeling your kitchen is a great investment for homeowners who are looking to put their home on the market.

Increase resale time with a new kitchen

Sure, there are those people that are looking for a fix-me-upper, but most homeowners aren’t looking to get down and dirty remodeling a new kitchen. They just want to move in and start putting personal touches on their new home. A new kitchen with new cabinetry, countertops, and smart appliances that are energy-efficient and will save water will be a big selling point to buyers.

Choosing the right style for your home

However, you need to be careful when you remodel your kitchen. You may appreciate the sleek, clean lines of a Scandinavian-style modern kitchen with flat surfaces, minimal flair, and fancy appliances. However, if you are living in an old, rustic, mountain home, you should talk to a designer about matching your aesthetics and your vision with a design that is also befitting the style of your home. Cohesion between the architecture of the house itself and new kitchen design is key to creating a consistent feel in your home.

A few upgrades go a long way

Refinishing your old cabinets, or replacing worn, weathered, and damaged countertops are small improvements that will give you great ROI without having to pay for a full kitchen remodel.

Give Yourself a Custom Entertainment Center for the New Year

Give Yourself a Custom Entertainment Center for the New Year

Kick Off the Year with a Custom Entertainment Center

There’s nothing quite like snuggling and watching your favorite show when it’s cold outside. Having a designated area where you can kick back and relax is ideal, and if you’re a sports fan, you know the best sports seasons are coming, so why not prepare for it? A custom entertainment center creates the perfect space for this while providing flexibility, storage, and so much more. Here are some of the benefits of creating your own entertainment center.

It Can be Adapted to Your Current Design

It can be hard to shop for furniture. An entertainment center is usually a large piece of furniture, which doesn’t make things any easier. How do you find something that fits perfectly with what you already have in that room or that is exactly what you had envisioned? Purchasing a custom-made entertainment center is how. It can be made to fit any space and designed to provide just the right look and feel.

Kick Off the Year with a Custom Entertainment CenterIt Can Solve Your Storage Problems

You could find an entertainment center that looks nice and adapts to the space it will be in, but it doesn’t meet your storage needs. Custom made entertainment centers can have as many doors, drawers or shelves as you need, and you can vary the size of every individual compartment as you see fit. All you have to do is select the right cabinetry for your needs.

It Can Meet Any Special Needs You Might Have

Do you need lit shelves, would you like to have a backlight for your TV, or maybe hide your TV when you’re not using it? When it’s custom made, you can do it all. The final product will depend entirely on your wants and needs.
Looking for great cabinets for your entertainment center? Our team of designers at The Kitchen Showcase can help you select the right cabinetry for your project. Give us a call today and let’s get started together on your project.
