Kitchen Cabinet Joints

When you are spending money on remodeling your kitchen you want to ensure that it not only looks up to par with your taste, but you also want to determine if the cabinetry you are purchasing will withstand the test of time. Durability is just as important; if not more important than pricing because remodeling a kitchen is something you are not looking to do every few years. You would like to be able to get good usage out of the kitchen you choose.

One item of importance in determining whether your kitchen will be able to hold up under stress is cabinet joints. The joint is how the door and frame are put together. There are a number of joint methods used by the cabinet manufacturers. Being knowledgeable about cabinet joints may aid you in your shopping. The dowel joint is one method in which two pieces of wood are connected by glue and two dowels which jut into the wood. The second type of joint is called a mortise-and-tenon joint. This method connects the two with one piece of wood carved out and extended into the other piece of wood. Many cabinetry manufacturers refer to the mortise-and-tenon joint differently. Some other terms used to describe this joint are tongue-and-groove joint and dovetailed joint. A butt joint is two pieces of wood side by side and either glued or nailed together.

No matter what method is used for your kitchen cabinets you must ensure that there is no separation between the two pieces. This will eventually lead to a problem. Looking for kitchen cabinets that come with some form of warranty is sometimes helpful.
