May 23, 2013Alert! Alert! Alert! New Steel Kitchen Cabinets Available!!!
By Sara In AZ
You know how it is, you are cruising around the web and then all of a sudden *whammo* you come across something really, really cool and your heart kinda skips a beat. Well, that’s what happened when I came across the Steel Kitchen Corporation website. NEW steel kitchen cabinets…..that you can order in the exact sizes that you need…..amazing!!!!
I know that Viking stopped production of the new ‘St. Charles’ brand steel cabinets, but they may make a comeback eventually as I heard another company may possibly take over production (maybe they have already???), but I had no idea that any other companies were actually manufacturing steel kitchen cabinets at this time.
Though these cabinets may not be the perfect vintage recreations of older style steel kitchen cabinets, how awesome to have another option available if you really want the metal cabinet look and you don’t want to wait years and years to put a set together that will fit your particular kitchen! Plus, it looks like they have lots and lots of cool options like glass front doors and pull out trash bins amongst other things.
All of the cabinets are made to order in south Florida – three cheers for American made!!! The indoor kitchen cabinets are constructed of 20 gauge stainless steel with the option of 18 gauge. You can get either a full stainless steel cabinet (box and door) or order just the door in stainless and the box constructed in wood. In looking over the pictures on the website, the wood interiors look very well made so if you were looking to save some money it may be a good option.
I sent off an e-mail to Steel Kitchen Corporation to see if I could get any more information and I received a response back from Carlos:
“Our cabinets are made with 100% stainless steel ( interior and exterior ). You may combine doors with different colors of mica to create a classic, modern or vintage design.
Our cabinets go by modular units, from 9 in. to 48 in with a 3in. increment.
Prices vary from $ 500 to $ 1500 per modular unit. An average kitchen has around 10 modular cabinets, so a 100% stainless steel kitchen will run from $ 7000 – $ 10000.
Also, we manufacture plywood interior cabinets with the same door fronts we use for our high end lines. This will give you the benefit of having the same look, for a lower cost ( 25% less ).”
I asked for clarification on the painted/wood look cabinets, as the website said there were more colors available, here is the reply back.
“The colors that you saw, are not painted. This are Formica sheets, that comes in many different colors and also in wood grains.
We could also paint the doors in case there is no available Formica color.”
As you can see in the picture below, the aqua looks painted – but it is actually a panel insert. I wanted to know if this could be changed out over time since we sometimes like to change up the look of our kitchens.
Here is his reply back:
“The Formica goes behind the frame and behind the Formica there is a panel of high density foam, which the Formica is glued to.
It is possible to change the Formica sheet in a future.”
So you could change it out from time to time if you wanted to, which is a cool option to have.
