Can I paint Lanae cabinets?

Yes, you can paint our cabinets. Our UV-cured paint functions as a durable primer for your personalized paint application. To ensure a strong mechanical bond, we recommend sanding our cabinets with 300 grit sandpaper before applying the paint.

How do I layout my kitchen?

The functionality of your kitchen greatly depends on the layout, and there are some general guidelines to follow. Firstly, placing the dishwasher next to the sink. Additionally, we suggest incorporating a pullout trash can nearby, either next to the sink or in the island if you have one. To optimize cooking efficiency, a spice rack cabinet should be located close to the range, and a large three drawer cabinet is ideal for storing pots and pans.

When planning the layout of your kitchen appliances, it's important to keep foot traffic in mind. Consider whether more than one person will be using the kitchen at the same time and whether the open refrigerator door will block any high-traffic areas.

Do I need door clearance?

If you are placing a cabinet next to a wall we recommend a 1/4-1/2” filler to allow the cabinet door to open completely.

Another factor to consider is the placement of corner cabinets. If your kitchen has a corner, it's recommended to use a 1.5-inch filler to ensure that cabinet doors can open without obstruction. It's common to forget the filler, which can result in the cabinet on the left not clearing the knob of the cabinet on the right when opening the door.

Fortunately, our lazy susan base cabinets and easy reach wall cabinets have bifold doors and don't require a filler, allowing them to open unobstructed.

How much does a kitchen cost?

At Lanae, we provide high-quality, ready-to-assemble cabinets. We do not offer custom cabinets or modifications. However, our cabinets are easy to modify if you have woodworking expertise. If you have any questions about modifying your cabinets, please feel free to contact us.

Do I need skin panels?

Our cabinet main boxes/carcasses are universal with white painted exterior sides. Only the Fronts (Face Frame, Doors and Drawer fronts) will be finished in your selected color, or stain. If any sides of your cabinets will be exposed, you will want to order a color matched skin panel for the exposed side/s.

White cabinets, glass door cabinets, and spice drawer cabinets come with pre-matched sides and do not require skin panels.

Each cabinet will come in two boxes: a carcass box and a front box. For example, C-B36-WHT and F-B36-BLK.
