The kitchen can be one of the toughest parts of the home to remodel; with numerous things needing to be taken in account, it can be an uphill struggle to make every decision that needs to be made. One area where you should never go for second-best is the kitchen cabinets. These will cover most of the room, providing a practical purpose by keeping your cookware, dry goods, and crockery clean while also providing a larger part of the rooms overall styling.
Since the cabinets are so important, you should think about what kind of cabinet doors are best. There are plenty of available options, but here are just three reasons you should strongly consider fitting louvered cabinet doors.
1. Attractive Style
Louvered cabinet doors are perfect for anyone who doesn't want their new kitchen to look too generic. With horizontal slats provided along their entire length, louvered cabinet doors bestow a more interesting appearance than just plain wood, and they tend to work particularly well in any kitchens that are attempting to foster a classic or period appearance. You also have plenty of options when it comes to styling. Most louvered cabinet doors will be made from wood, so they can be painted in any colour you could think of, and you have the freedom to choose between full louvered and half louvered doors.
2. Excellent Ventilation
Since louvered cabinets doors usually have a little space between each slat, they provide some ventilation. Since many types of food ask to be kept somewhere 'cool and dry', louvered cabinets are ideal; any hot air will have no opportunity to build up within the cabinet on a boiling summer's day. At the same time, the downwards orientation of the slat will prevent any excess dust from entering the cabinet.
3. Range of Costs and Materials
Louvered cabinet doors can be quite expensive when they are made of the finest timber and employ any stylistic touches, but they don't have to cost the earth. A wide range of cheaper woods, including processed and repurposed, can be used to keep your costs down, and some manufacturers will use PVS, acrylic, or some other such inexpensive synthetic material to create louvered cabinet doors. As well as helping you keep an eye on costs, this impressive range of materials means that you can suit your louvered doors around different styles. A more modern, vibrant style, for example, can be accented by brightly-coloured plastic louvered doors.
