Pros of Aluminium Kitchen Cabinets

Economical and Long lasting

Aluminium kitchen cabinets are relatively more resilient, as they do not warp or break like the wooden cabinets. This makes them long lasting and eliminates the need for you to do any replacement for a long time.

Ease of care and maintenance

The aluminium kitchen cabinets do not need much care. You can easily just wipe off any dirt and dust with a damp cloth, unlike wooden kitchen cabinets which require extra cleaning substances like household detergent or soda powder solution.

Water proof

This is a big plus for aluminium kitchen cabinets compared to the common wooden ones. Because any spills will just stay on the surface and can be cleaned with an easy wipe-off. So you do not have to worry about the spills getting soaked up and damaging the cabinets like the wooden ones.

Rust resistant

The aluminium kitchen cabinets have an oxidized finish to prevent rust.

Insect proof

Another big plus of aluminium kitchen cabinets is that they are not prone to insect infestation because of their non-porous and waterproof nature. This will certainly give you a greater peace of mind.

Cons of Aluminium Kitchen Cabinets

Noisy

Aluminium kitchen cabinets can be a little noisier than the common wooden cabinets. But with the good installation and quality hinges, this little problem can be countered easily.

Tendency to dent

This should be your concern if you have kids or spouse who have the tendency to throw things around or are not so gentle in housekeeping. Because it is not possible to repair a dented aluminium cabinet – your only choice would be to replace the damaged part. But if your family is a home-loving bunch, then this should not be an issue.

More suitable for modern homes

To be honest, the aluminium kitchen cabinets are more suitable for homes with more contemporary designs. If your home interior design is more traditional or original, we would not recommend getting the aluminium kitchen cabinets as they would not fit in as well.

Final verdict

Aluminium kitchen cabinets are not for every home… but if your home design is more of the contemporary style, you should definitely consider this light-weight and versatile option.
