Hello Everyone!!


I just wanted to share with you a great tool and website in your kitchen and bathroom planning.

Thanks for the recommendation!

Do you have pictures of your new cabinets? Were they for the bath or the kitchen? Or both? We'd love to see them installed!

These cabinets truly look beautiful, from what little i can see on the website. I want to look into it further .


Here's my question: is it NOT a good idea to order cabinets from a totally different geographic area? We're in the Northeast, and this cabinet vendor is in Florida. I thought I'd read somewhere that you should try to order cabinets from as close by as possible because the wood endures best in a climate similar to its native climate. Any thoughts on this?

Well, I don't know where joshsmom00 lives (no profile! tsk Tsk! ;-) ) so I can't tell if she ordered locally or not.

however, you have a point about wood needing to acclimate to the climate. But MOST wooden cabinetry and furniture is made in the SE and even if you order from a local distributer, odds are it will come from someplace else in the country. I think (not sure on this) that most wooden items are made from kiln-dried woods so they shouldn't be as susceptible to warping, etc...

Now if you bought a Chinese antique that wasn't made from cured woods, yes you WOULD get splitting (I speak from experience -- it' VERY dry in Beijing and just brining a piece indoors causes issues! LOL We have this wall carving that has a crack that disappears in winter and reappears in humid winter.) Odds are, most antiques are this vulnerable but I suspect modern cabinetry isn't...

Anyone else want to weigh in on this?
