Here's Why Everyone Is Opting For Stainless Steel Kitchen Cabinets & Sinks

Have you ever wondered why so many homeowners are making the switch to stainless steel for their kitchen cabinets and sinks? Let me share a personal story that might shed some light on the matter.

In my home, like many others, we initially had wooden kitchen cabinets. However, after nearly five years, we started noticing some troubling issues. Certain parts of the cabinets, especially the baseboard, began to show signs of wear and tear - peeling, chipping, and even mould growth. Upon investigation, we realised that our cats’ water bowls were to blame. Their spills, although small, had gradually caused damage over time. This got me thinking: are there better alternatives out there?

Wooden kitchen cabinets, while common and often seen as a budget-friendly choice, come with their fair share of drawbacks. They are prone to water damage, can break easily, and are attractive to termites. If not properly maintained, they can even become breeding grounds for mould and mildew, as I’ve learned firsthand.

Aluminium cabinets seemed like a viable alternative at first, boasting resistance to rust. However, they too have their drawbacks. As aluminium is light-weight and soft, they dent easily, especially in high-traffic areas like the kitchen. Think about how easily a pen can scrape your car - similar principles apply here.

Introducing Song-Cho’s 304 Grade Stainless Steel Kitchen System & Sink

Enter stainless steel - a game-changer in the world of kitchen materials. Unlike wood or aluminium, Song-Cho’s stainless steel kitchen system and sink offer numerous benefits that make them an attractive choice for modern kitchens. With two ranges: Made in Japan and Song-Kitchen (in-house brand), you have the flexibility to choose the option that best suits your needs and preferences.

Hygiene: Stainless steel isn’t just durable and hygienic; it’s also water-proof, termite-proof, heat-resistant, and free from warping and formaldehyde. Embossed with an e-coat finish, its stainless steel countertop prevents cuts and is easy to clean! Unlike countertops with cut lines that can trap dirt and harbour bacteria, Song-Cho’s stainless steel countertop ensures cleanliness and peace of mind. Say goodbye to worries about water damage, mould growth, pests, and harmful chemicals lurking in your kitchen cabinets.

Convenience: No more climbing on chairs to reach high spots for your bowls, plates, and cups. Song-Cho’s stainless steel kitchen rack features a convenient pull-down function with double layers, providing ample storage and easy access. The best part is, it comes with Blum soft-close hinges, ensuring smooth and quiet operation, eliminating loud banging noises.

Everything can be customised to suit your kitchen space and personal style, right down to the finish and colour of your cabinets. Even the countertop is customisable!

Seamless Sink & Tap

Of course the sink is also stainless steel. Song-Cho’s seamless sink simplifies dishwashing with the Stream Flow Sink. Made in Japan, this award-winning innovative sink features a unique ‘nearside inclination’ and ‘waterway structure’ to help clear away food debris. Say goodbye to scattered food remnants with the directed water flow, aided by a stainless steel drainage basket that collects residue for easy cleaning.

But if you are not up for the Stream Flow Sink, Song-Cho offers pull-out taps and faucets that allow you to clean your sink more effectively! No more using cups or your palm to spread water all over your sink. You can also effortlessly switch between water stream modes, just like adjusting your shower head.

What sets Song-Cho’s stainless steel sink apart is that it’s  not just a normal sink. It can be integrated with the countertop, creating a seamless design that prevents dirt and water from accumulating. With no risk of water seepage into the cabinets, cleaning becomes a breeze!

Smart Dish Racks For Modern Living

So you’ve heard of Amazon’s Alexa and dishwashers, but have you heard of voice-controlled dish racks? Picture this: after washing the dishes and your hands are still wet, simply say “come down,” and the rack lowers for you to place the washed dishes. When you’re done, just say “go up” to close it. Alternatively, a quick tap achieves the same result, offering effortless convenience for your kitchen chores.
