What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Stainless steel or aluminium Metal kitchen cabinets are very strong and durable. This is a more expensive option, however. Steel or aluminium can be used as doors over wood-based cabinets. I would suggest you team this eclectic material with glass to lighten the look. Though plain ones are the most common, metal sheets are available in varied finishes: brushed, etched and patterned. ProsMetals boasts a unique look. Treated metal is sturdy, rust-resistant and stain-resistant. Metal doors are unaffected by heat and humidity. These sheets are easy to scrub and clean, and are therefore unaffected by the spice- and frying-induced grime deposited in our kitchens..ConsMetals are available in a limited range of colours. They might need repolishing when the top shiny coat oxidises or rusts. Metal surfaces show oil smudges and fingerprints very clearly, so there’s a lot more deployment of the duster. These sheets also have the tendency to dent and scratch. Last but not least, their doors and drawers are noisier than those of other materials.Read more:10 Indian Kitchens on Houzz That Evoke Envy6 Ways to Let Your Kitchen Sizzle With SteelTell us:What material would you choose for your kitchen design and why?
