Whether renovating or furnishing a newly bought house, homeowners always take time in choosing the best furniture that is both durable and with an exquisite look to compliment the house. Choosing the right kitchen cabinet for your house can be difficult and take a lot of your time if you do not know what you are looking for. Below is a detailed review of one of the most popular RTA kitchen cabinet designs on the market: the Pacifica Kitchen Cabinet.
Material: Pacifica kitchen cabinets are made of solid American maple wood. Maple is well-known for its durability and resistance to shock brought about by the busy traffic in the kitchen. Maple has a smooth texture and is readily available, making maple-made kitchen cabinets cheaper than those made of oak but not less luxurious when it comes to appearance. Kitchen cabinets made of maple wood can actually be stained to make the wood look like cherry, a much expensive kind of wood. Pacifica kitchen cabinet front frames and door frames all made of ¾” solid maple wood.
Doors: Pacifica kitchen cabinets incorporate a full overlay door style which is often used in frameless cabinets but can also be used on full framed kitchen cabinets. They are made of solid wood which can be refinished if damaged or worn down over time. Solid wood kitchen doors are more resistant to humidity and moist—the most common destroyers of veneered doors.
Hinges and connectors: The hinges on the doors of Pacifica kitchen cabinets are six way adjustable hinges. These hinges are concealed to protect them from rust and to keep the sleek and smooth look of the full overlay door style. The cabinet connectors are pre-installed in Pacifica kitchen cabinets. These are color coated metal clips and have minimal chance of tarnishing.
Drawers: The drawers of Pacifica kitchen cabinets are made of solid wood while the bottom is made of plywood. These full extension drawers are pre-assembled using the dovetail joint technique. Dovetail is noted for being tensile or its resistance to being pulled. Wood dovetail joints do not require mechanical fasteners like screws or nails which are susceptible to rust. Pacifica kitchen cabinet drawers also have a soft closing feature. Some manufacturers even offer drawers with self closing glides.
Shelves: Pacifica kitchen cabinets shelves are all adjustable. They are made of Grade A plywood with wood veneer and have ½” depth.
Cabinet boxes: The cabinet boxes of Pacifica kitchen cabinets are made of grade A plywood veneered with either maple or birch wood. The back panels of Pacifica kitchen cabinets are also made of plywood. Unlike some RTA kitchen, the interiors of Pacifica kitchen cabinets match the doors for a stylish and elegant look.
