Wood-Mode Cabinets

Posted On: May 09, 2016

There are two lines of “Wood-Mode” Custom Cabinetry that Aladdin Remodelers provides; Wood-Move and Brookhaven. Each of these styles share a lineage of quality and expert craftsmanship, but have distinct differences in their construction. When choosing between Wood-Mode and Brookhaven, it is wise to consider how each style will appear in your home.

Wood-Mode designs are the more traditional route and give you a classic look as seen in the photo above. Brookhaven construction generally uses a frameless design when being built, while Wood-Mode cabinets tend to stick to a framed design.

So how does the construction model breakdown?

  • Your cabinets will be stained and painted in a multi-step process
  • They will include adjustable shelves that are supports with integrated clips
  • The choice of solid maple, walnut and cherry drawer boxes or the common European stylish look of stainless steel
  • The inclusion of full-extension under-mount drawer slides for increased interior storage. This allows for soft-closing action and special stops to prevent the drawers from being pulled out.

When deciding between Framed or Frameless cabinets, it is important to understand their differences and what they will bring to your kitchen.

Framed cabinets are made with furniture-quality plywood and are incredibly durable. They are lined with easily cleaned maple veneers. Concealed, self-closing hinges open a full 125 degrees with the ability to adjust for precise door alignments, with decorative hinges that open a full 180 degrees.

Frameless cabinets are made with furniture-quality particleboard for maximum stability. They can be lined with either stain resistant white or wood grain melamine. These concealed, self-closing hinges can open at a full 110 degrees. This is a more contemporary look that allows comes with a white or stainless steel metal drawer option.

Wood-Move cabinets provide a regal and stylish look to your kitchen. The decision between Framed or Frameless cabinets depends on how you would like your cabinet to look. The experts at Aladdin Remodeling will help guide you along this journey as well!


Maximizing Counter Space

Posted On: May 03, 2016

Today we are going to examine the most effective solutions to using counters in your kitchen regardless of the size. If those counters are actually going to be used for food preparation, the counter should be kept clear, which means you are going to need more space elsewhere to keep the area clean for food. Every item in your kitchen needs to have a home; whether it be utensils, sponges, soaps or bottle openers. Take advantage of walls and side of cabinets with hook attachments. Extra shelving units above the sink always help to maximize counter space. As you can see in the example photo above, this is a much grander kitchen and uses a large 3/4 island.  The sink is within the island, while the stove is on the back kitchen wall. However, instead of having the cabinets above the sink, they have them above the stove instead. While these homeowners elected to have deocorative pieces hand from the top of their island, we could also find a stylish way to put your fine china and kitchen equipment there as well.
