Wooden Cupboards

There’s little more that adds class and function to your kitchen than wooden cupboards. They look great, and their natural wood grain adds a unique, classically vintage appeal to your home. They can be made from lots of different types of wood, such as simple pine, oak, and maple, to more elegant selections like mahogany.

If you’re like most people, your kitchen is widely seen by many guests and visitors, so it’s in your best interest for it to look great. Counters wiped and free of crumbs. Floors mopped. Everything put away properly. However, cleanliness is one thing, but what if something in your kitchen is actually damaged?

Nothing wooden in your home is entirely immune to damage – especially if you have kids, pets, or a large family! There are no guarantees that the wooden surfaces of your cabinets won’t get chipped, scratched, gouged, or even burned – after all, your kitchen is a busy place.

Fixing Damage

Picture this: you just moved into a new home, and it’s fantastic. It’s in good shape overall, and has everything you’ve ever wanted in a home. However, it needs a little work here and there; most notably, the kitchen cabinets have areas where they’re scratched and chipped. As much as you’d like to just ignore the damage, it’s a little too glaring. What can you do?

A common solution to this problem (one that many homeowners employ) is to simply paint the cupboards white. It’s quick and relatively inexpensive – definitely less pricey and less work than just getting new cabinets – so it’s probably a safe bet, right?

Though white wooden cupboards can certainly look nice, it’s too much of a shame to rob yourself of the natural wood look in your home. Not only do you lose sight of the original wood grain, but you also now have cabinets that will show the original colours underneath if they are damaged again. Those are just two reasons out of many why, in the event of minor damage such as scratches, nicks, or mild burns, we recommend getting your cabinets repaired rather than getting it painted.

At New Creations, we’re happy to give you a hand getting your dream home looking just a little more pristine. Our mobile technicians are able to come visit your home and make quick, effective repairs to complicated problems – including cosmetically damaged wood. Our methods are cost effective, safe, and environmentally friendly.
