5. Width of panels of upper and lower cabinetsThe most common way to demarcate upper and lower cabinet sections is by dividing them equally (as in this image) such that the width of a double-door cabinet ranges between 30 and 36 inches. Sliding panels can go up to 2 feet per panel.Tip: Consider creating organised storage in the lower cabinets with modular accessories. In such a case the dimensions of the shelves of the lower cabinets and of the drawers will be as per the size of the modular accessories.
3. Wood veneersVeneers are slices or sheets of solid wood that are pasted over a composite substrate, just like laminates. These sheets are then stained and polished to achieve a desired colour and texture. Veneers truthfully reflect the refined grains and beauty of natural wood. Many brands like CenturyPly, ArchidPly, GreenPly and AlishanPly provide good-quality veneers all over India.ProsWood veneers are sustainable and economical compared to wood as only thin slices of solid wood are used to cover large surface areas. Veneers can make a potentially hard-edged kitchen look softer. Veneers can be treated to achieve matte, semi-gloss and high-gloss finishes. ConsVeneers tend to discolour when they are exposed to natural light. The sheets require polishing after a period of time, just like wood. You may see stains due to water if the sheet is not polished properly. Veneers are not scratch-resistant.
