Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can you describe the construction of your cabinets?
A: All of the cabinets sold at Kitchens On A Budget are made out of solid wood (no particle board). All wood, face frame construction using selected 3/4“solid wood. Premium full overlay door styles up to 36" wide. 5/8”A-grade Plywood Boxes, interior natural UV Clear coat finish. Most other cabinet company on the market now use composite wood (particle broad) or less 1/2” plywood, only high end and expensive cabinetry will use 5/8”or ¾” thick plywood boxes.
Q: What do you mean by "all wood, no particleboard"?
A: Particle board – also known as low density fiberboard and chipboard, is a wood product manufactured from wood chips, sawmill shavings or even sawdust, and a synthetic resin or other suitable binder. It is then pressed and extruded. Most kitchen cabinets available at other big box stores are made of particle board but at KOB Kitchen’s cabinets feature a quality 5/8” plywood box with solid wood face frame and door. Plywood has been proven to last longer in more under harsher conditions than particle board, thus our cabinets will function well for longer than our competition.

Just as no two trees are alike, no two pieces of wood are alike. The variation in color and grain pattern in wood adds to its natural beauty and is not considered an imperfection. Environmental factors, including but not limited to artificial / natural light, moisture, cleaners, smoke, etc, may cause the darkening or mellowing of a cabinet over time. This is a natural process and can be expected. This warranty does not cover the natural aging or darkening / mellowing of wood color, the inherent growth characteristics of, or variation in wood.
Some of the cabinet lines feature a glazed finish which accentuates the door and drawer front profiles. This glaze is hand applied over a stain or paint and may, due to the nature of application, consist of random drips, runs, etc. As glazing is a hand applied process there will be variations in color and appearance from door to door and cabinet to cabinet. This is not considered a defect and is considered normal with hand applied finishes.
It is the nature of wood to expand and contract to varying degrees depending on climate conditions. As a result, cabinet lines with painted surfaces may show fractures in the paint at joints. This is normal and is not considered a defect.

9. Friendly Reminder, Wood is an organic material. Regardless of quality, hairline cracks are unavoidable in wood cabinets. They occur wherever there’s a joint between pieces of wood with grain running in different directions: for example, the joints between stiles and rails on the doors or the face frames that surround openings, the pieces expand and contract at different rates with changes in humidity, since wood movement is much more pronounced across the grain than with it, a painted finish, no matter how good or how carefully applied, just can't keep up. Every species and grade of solid wood behaves this, although cracks are more noticeable on the light-color cabinets than on dark one, we warn clients about this in advance, the cracks will probably be more noticeable in winter than in summer because heat dries everything out
We hope this clarifies what you can expect from Kitchens On A Budget, LLC. We are committed to helping our Clients make the best choices for their projects. We look forward to working together on your Kitchen project.
