Seven elements of the overall kitchen

First, ask the thickness of the cabinet board

There are 16 mm, 18 mm and other thickness specifications on the market, and the cost of different thicknesses varies greatly. The cost of this 18 mm thick plate is 7% higher than that of 16 mm thick plates. The service life of cabinets made of 18 mm thick plates can be more than doubled, ensuring that the door panels are not deformed and the countertops are protected from cracking. Consumers must carefully understand the composition of the material when looking at the samples, so as to be well aware of it.

Second, ask the assembly method

Generally, small factories or hand-made on-site can only be connected with screws and rivets or glue. Adopting the latest third-generation box bar and tenon structure with fixed parts and quick assembly parts, it is more effective to ensure the firmness and endurance of the box, and less glue is used, which is more environmentally friendly.

Third, ask whether the cabinet is independent

The whole set of connected cabinets will affect the fastness, so consumers should ask clearly when purchasing the whole cabinet, the difference in service life and stability between the two is 2-3 times, and the difference in cost is 5%. Consumers can pack and install it. The cabinet is to be identified. If the independent cabinet is assembled with a single cabinet, each cabinet should have an independent package; consumers can also observe it before the cabinet is installed.

Fourth, ask whether the back panel is single-sided or double-sided

In order to save costs, some manufacturers cut corners and seal the back panel only on one side, and the invisible side is exposed. The single-sided sealing back panel is prone to damp and mildew, and it is easy to release formaldehyde, causing pollution, so it must be sealed on both sides.

Five to ask whether the anti-cockroach mute edge band

Use anti-cockroach-proof and silent-edge-sealed cabinets to ease the impact when the door is closed, eliminate noise and prevent cockroaches and other insects from entering. The cost of whether there is anti-cockroach-proof edge sealing is 3%. Also check the countertop, door panel, and cabinet. Whether the sealing strip and the anti-collision strip are processed by machine film pressing, and whether the front and back sides are pressed together. If the sealing strip is not tightly closed, it will cause oily smoke, dust and insects to enter.

Sixth, ask how to install the aluminum foil of the clean sink cabinet

Is it pressed once or glued during installation. The sealing performance of one-time pressing is better, water and moisture are not easily penetrated, and the cabinet is more effectively protected and the service life of the cabinet is prolonged.

Seven, ask the composition of artificial stone

Suitable materials for kitchen countertops include fireproof board, artificial stone, natural marble, granite, stainless steel, etc. Among them, artificial stone countertops have the best price-performance ratio. The cheap countertop calcium carbonate has a high composition and is easy to crack. Compound acrylic, pure acrylic, etc. are more commonly used in the market. The best ratio of acrylic component in composite acrylic is generally about 20%.
