Tips to Decide on the Entertainment Cabinet for Your Home

Entertainment cabinets are a very good idea if you intend to keep all your entertainment and room decorations in one place. If you choose the right entertainment cabinet, it will not only add to the ambience of your home, but will also help as a secondary storage compartment, where you will be able to store all the objects that you use daily but do not want scattered all around the house. Here are three important tips to keep in mind while deciding on the cabinet for your home.

Check the Size of the Room:

Typically, one would place the television cabinet at the wall, and there are many possibilities that the cabinet would take up the full wall. It is also possible that the cabinet area may become an injury prone area in the house if there is a door right next to or near the wall with the cabinet. Make sure that there is a good five to six inches of breathing space between the doorway and the edge of the cabinet.

Check the Television Size:

The entertainment cabinet most probably will be home to the television, the DVD player and the audio system, if existent. Therefore, make sure to check the size of the television before you decide on an entertainment cabinet. There should be at least two to four inches of space between the television and the edge of the cabinet, to ensure the safe and hassle free positioning of the television set. Also remember to keep some space between the wall and the cabinet, so that the wires and other connections have breathing space.

Lockable Lower Compartments:

If you have a big entertainment cabinet, you can save some money when you are about to buy a cupboard and vice versa. However, if you have small kids at home, remember that they get all trigger happy by the time they are four and will open anything that can be - and one of their first victims are the lower compartments of the entertainment cabinet. So, you should either store only the kidstuff and unbreakable stuff in the lower compartments, or opt for compartments with lockable lower compartments.

Choosing the Right Kitchen Cabinets For Your Home

When you decide you would like to have new kitchen cabinets for your home, there are several options open to you. You may just have to reface your existing cabinets, which is not a costly venture. You can accomplish this in a very short time because all you have to do is hang new doors and the fronts of the drawers and a new surface to the facings. This way the look of your cabinets changes and it will seem as if you have a new kitchen.

However, if you decide you want to tear out the existing cabinets and completely replace them, this will require more work. You can draw up a new layout for the kitchen and place the appliances in different locations. You might also decide to put in an island in the kitchen or separate the kitchen and dining areas with a peninsula. The best thing to do is to take a good look at the size of the room and then draw up the plans for the location of different cabinets and the appliances.

The refrigerator and the stove need to have cabinet space between them because they should never be placed side by side. If you have a window, this is the best place for the sink And if you have a dishwasher, it should be as close to the sink as possible to make the plumbing easier.

Once you have the layout planned, then you have to decide what type of material you want for the cabinets. Wooden cabinets give the kitchen a more traditional look, but with wood it is harder to clean off the grease that gets on the surfaces from cooking. You also have to think about the type of doors you want. Do you want square lines or would you prefer a little more detail as in the cathedral design? Do you want to have the cabinets the same height across the top or the staggered look? You can choose to have a space between the top of the cabinets and the ceiling or you can have a bulkheading built over them that has the same design as the cabinets.

Then you have to think about the color of stain you want to use. Deciding to renovate your kitchen with new cabinets is not an easy decision.
