Why buy Free-Standing Kitchen Units?
Retain your investment: If you ever move house/apartment, you can take your kitchen cabinets with you as free-standing kitchen units that you have purchased are not considered to be permanent fixtures and therefore remain your property.
More flexibility: With free-standing units your are not forced to endure the same look for many years. Free-standing units allow you the opportunity to change your kitchen layout as often as you please without an expensive renovation.
Easy Access/ More hygienic: Free-standing units make it much easier to spring clean as they allow you to move the units out of the way to access hard to reach areas such as underneath or behind the cabinets.
MDF (Supawood) vs Melamine
MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) is ideal for surfaces, cabinets, built-ins and many other home and storage solutions. MDF is a mix of wood chips, wood fibre and resin that is compressed with heat and pressure to create a dense, uniform piece of MDF. As MDF is so dense, it is easier to cut without breaking or compromising its integrity. Melamine is a mix of wood chips and resin used to create a single piece of board. This may be sturdy as a solid, but may lose structural integrity when cut. MDF is therefore stronger, denser, doesn’t crumble or warp and is less likely to swell.
How to care for your kitchen cabinets:
Make sure you dust and wipe regularly with a soft, non-abrasive cloth. A slightly damp cloth may be used, taking care not to apply too much water as this may result in water damage.
