New Orleans Kitchen Cabinets

When it comes to luxury there are few cities in America that compare to the greatest city in the French Quarter, the Big Easy, you know New Orleans. Of course you can always find new construction but what usually strikes me on my visits to New Orleans are the homes that were built more than 100 years ago that have been restored to their original glory.

Best Remodeled Rooms

Of course the best rooms will usually have new kitchen counter tops, tile or wood flooring and the oh so famous French styled New Orleans Kitchen Cabinets. A word about wood flooring. Because New Orleans is on the water, having hard wood flooring, at least flooring that has not been properly tempered is not the best idea, so be sure to find a wood that is suited for moist conditions, preferably a laminate.

Back to Kitchen Cabinets in New Orleans. Be sure to find cabinets make a strong wood and not cheap plywood, like many of the cabinets imported from China. While American made kitchen cabinets tend to cost more, trust me it is more than worth it in the long run to opt for kitchen cabinets with a strong manufacturer. Of course this site is all about luxury home remodeling, so think of names like Merilatt.
