Metal Kitchen Cabinets
Metal kitchen cabinets are becoming more and more popular. Most metal kitchen cabinets are made out of stainless steel. Since it is resistant to corrosion and staining, calls for low maintenance and is relatively inexpensive, it makes for great cabinets. When used on cabinets, the metal covers an inner core which helps lessen the tinny sounds that are normally received from solid metal.
Most stainless steel cabinets are purchased in various colors that can go with the décor of various kitchens. The cabinets are available in various sizes and there are over 150 grades of stainless steel, depending on the alloy content.
Most cabinets have a polished finish with short directional polishing lines that may get scratched over a period of time, not to mention show signs of fingerprints. To restore the finish, a professional can be called in to work on a new finish that will fade the scratches. You can decide on whether you want the finish to be swirl or embossed. You also have the option of refinishing the cabinet yourself. This is done by using a non-metallic abrasive pad and rubbing the surface using uniform strokes in the same direction as the current polishing lines. Lighter scratches will begin to fade by doing this.
