Kitchen renovation experts are urging homeowners to be cautious about the dark kitchen cabinets in their homes.
The kitchen cabinets have been known to turn into a cloud of dust and smoke when the humidity in the living room is too high.
Now, they’re making the same mistake.
And while some of the furniture in a home may not be visible from the outside, they can be deadly.
The experts are warning the kitchen cabinets are becoming more dangerous.
(Kate McIntosh/CBC)The Kitchen Cabinets are not safe from the dark.
“These are not dark kitchens.
They are dark furniture, they are dark walls, they have been around for quite a long time, so they are probably not really designed for comfort and comfort is something you want to have in a dark kitchen,” said Janette McEwan, the owner of Kitchen Cabinet Restoration.
McEwin owns two kitchen cabinets at her home in Vancouver’s downtown core.
She said she has seen her cabinets turn from being a cozy, dark place to a dark and gloomy place.
“We had a few cabinets that were a bit dark because the ceilings were going up in the middle, so that was something I thought was a little bit funny and that was kind of a joke that people might be joking about,” she said.
“But they were really very dark.”
McEwen said she is now thinking of replacing the cabinets.
“It’s a good idea to be aware of the darker areas of the house, because it could just be that the cabinet is going to be the most difficult to move around because there is a lot of dust in there,” she added.
“And that could be something that we don’t want to do.”
In fact, she has already installed cabinets that look like they could be a little darker in the future.
“They’ve already been installed with a white wall, so there’s just that white line, but it’s actually a dark color, so it’s going to create a little more of a dark look,” she explained.
“So I think people need to be really careful when they’re renovating their kitchens, because I think there is just a risk.”
McEswen has a different suggestion for people who want to avoid a dark Kitchen Cabineter: “Do your research before you start.”
“Just be aware that there is going be a lot more dust in the walls, and I don’t think that that’s good.
I think that it’s very hard to remove, so be aware, be very careful and really take it on the chin,” she suggested.
In the meantime, McElyn has started painting her cabinets white.
“If it’s a dark area, just take the cabinets off the wall and paint it white.
And if it’s something that is a little light, that’s fine,” she advised.
“Just take the walls off the floor and paint them white, but take them off the walls and put them on the floor.”
In addition to the risk of dark Kitchen Cabs turning into a black cloud, McEswan said the furniture can also make noise when it rains.
“Sometimes the cabinets just fall over when it’s raining.
You can hear them when they fall over, so if you’re in a rain storm, just make sure to take them out,” she urged.
“Take them off and put the furniture back on.”
