Our Cabinets Are Your Best Choice
How We Build Our Cabinets
Simply Affordable Cabinets offers many options that will give you a great looking kitchen, bath, or whatever room you are remodeling.
Here at SAC, we build our cabinets with real hardwoods and hardwood plywood and quality slides and hinges.
. Hardwood plywood has much better damage and wear resistance than laminated furniture board. Furniture board is prone to drawing moisture and coming apart at stress points. It is cheaper than plywood and is used when cost is more important than strength and appearance.
Components are fastened with screws, not nails and staples, for maximum strength. Below is a comparison of "ours vs theirs".
Our cabinets are built using;
3/4" plywood backs, tops, and bottoms
1/2" plywood sides
Exterior sides and ends are real, stained or painted hardwood and/or plywood, not vinyl laminate
Typical factory made economy cabinets use;
1/2" furniture board sides, tops, and bottom
3/8" furniture board back
Laminated exterior sides and ends
Slides And Hinges
We use ball bearing, full extension,100 lb rated side mount slides on our basic cabinets. You can upgrade to hidden, undermount slides. Most basic factory built cabinets use slides that are 3/4 extension, have a much lower weight rating, and use plastic rollers.
We use high quality 1 piece hinges on our basic cabinet doors for a much longer life expectation than most basic factory cabinets. You can upgrade to 2 piece hinges that allow fast, easy door removal for cleaning.
Your Choice Of Wood
We offer 9 different kinds of North American hardwoods with variations of some of them to have your cabinet made from. Some of the variations include rustic grade which has knots in it. You can also have the face frames and doors made from band sawn lumber for a different kind of rustic look. Click on the thumbnails below to see a larger image and description of each.
Alder is characterized by its straight grain and even texture. Its reddish brown color often looks similar to Cherry. While Alder is often used to mimic Cherry, its rich tone is beautiful. And certainly warrants use for its own distinct qualities. Though it dents relatively easy, it offers a stable surface.
White ash has a medium to coarse texture similar to oak. The grain is almost always straight and regular, though sometimes moderately curly or figured boards can be found. The heartwood is a light to medium brown color. Sapwood can be very wide, and tends to be a beige or light brown; not always clearly or sharply demarcated from heartwood.
Cherry wood is moderately heavy, hard, and strong, and it also machines and sands to glass-like smoothness. Because of this, Cherry finishes beautifully. The heartwood in Cherry is red in color, and the sapwood is light pink. Components made of Cherry generally consist of approximately 25% sapwood and 75% heartwood.
If you are looking for strength, hardness, and durability; Hickory is the best commercially available wood in North America. The grain is normally straight, but can sometimes be irregular or wavy. Hickory has a coarse texture, with a great deal of color variation between reddish brown, lighter brown, and white. Color variation may have a striped appearance.
Poplar typically has a straight, uniform grain, with a medium texture. Low natural luster. Heartwood is light cream to yellowish brown, with occasional streaks of gray or green. Sapwood is pale yellow to white, not always clearly demarcated from the heartwood. Can also be seen in mineral stained colors ranging from dark purple to red, green, or yellow, sometimes referred to as Rainbow Poplar. Colors tend to darken upon exposure to light.
Having medium density, hardness, and strength, its machining and finishing properties are good, as is its stability. This fine textured and close grained wood does not require filling. When painted cabinets are chosen, they are usually made with soft maple.
White Oak, an American hardwood, ranges in color from a very light color to a light to dark brown heartwood. White oak is much harder and heavier than the Red Oak. White oak is characterized by a mostly straight grained wood with a medium to coarse texture. The white oak will exhibit longer rays than that of the Red Oak, giving it more figure. The tighter, straighter grain pattern does not allow stain to penetrate the grain as easily resulting in a more consistent finish.
Quarter sawn white oak displays an exceptional amount of flake or fleck in the grain.
Red Oak is a wood that is known for being very hard, heavy, and strong. However, given its density, it is actually fairly easy to work. Like Hickory, it does have a coarse texture. Red Oak turns, carves, and bends well. It is also characterized by having excellent sanding and finishing properties, and great stability.
Rustic grade has knots and other imperfections.
Black walnut is considered a rare wood type, and it is quite durable and strong. Its coloration can be light to chocolate brown, and may contain burls, butts, and curls. The sapwood is usually white in color, and may be as high as 25%, but we have it steamed to make it a light coffee color, allowing for better color uniformity.
Band sawn lumber has the saw tooth marks left after being sawn. It can be ordered with or without knots.
Stain And Paint Choices
There is virtually an unlimited number of paints and stains to choose from. Below is a few different stain samples you can choose from on red oak. We can match any paint color you have in mind.
