Hardware was my choice and the drawers are all silent glides & soft shut. The appliances were squeezed in as tight as could be but I have lots of storage thanks to Chris. I recommend Dark Horse highly as will anyone else who inspects the woodwork. His own kitchen cabinetry was outstanding and his furniture is exquisite.
When you choose painted Dark Horse Cabinets Atlanta, they will usually be assembled with materials that accept and hold paint well, such as poplar, veneered plywood or MDF. The key is having a nice, flat surface, free of knots and heavy grain patterns. Some cabinet manufacturers perform all the finishing work on their cabinets in-house. At Canyon Creek, an elaborate system of spray booths, ovens and an overhead drying line make it possible to finish hundreds of cabinets a day. Cabinets leave the plant boxed and ready for installation.
The kind of paint used on your Dark Horse Cabinets Atlanta will impact how they look, how they wear, how much they chip and whether they are resistant to water. When purchasing a stock or semi-custom cabinet, ask what kind of paint is used and if there are other options. There are many paint options: oil- or water-based paints that may or may not include alkyd resins to help with curing, and even solid-body conversion varnishes. Having an extended conversation about the options and their impacts (off-gassing, longevity etc.) might be helpful. Earlier this year I looked into using a zero-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paint on some custom cabinets, but received less-than-positive feedback from the paint shop about using it. Using a low-VOC paint instead yielded good results. Paint companies are constantly working on formulating coatings with fewer VOCs, and as time goes on, they will only get better, so look at all of your options.
