Stainless steel kitchen cabinets were first introduced about 10 years ago and can be integrated in a number of ways.
Some like to go all stainless with stainless counters and appliances, others incorporate the stainless with wood trim
to give it a bit of warmth. You can have a shiny mirror like finish or brushed finish depending on the look you want.
When selecting stainless steel kitchen cabinets, keep in mind the maintenance and wear caused by every day use.
A mirror finish will show fingerprints and need to be polished frequently if you have young ones.
Also, stainless does scratch so if you are picky about that sort of thing, this material might not be for you.
Some do say that the scratching adds character to the material.
You'll have to plan your lighting carefully if you plan on installing stainless stell kitchen cabinets as they will reflect light.
Make sure you don't have any lighting directed at them and lights are placed so that reflections are kept to a minimum.
Stainless steel kitchen cabinets are extremely sanitary and very easy to clean. With normal use they should last a lifetime.
Washing with soapy water should be sufficient to keep them looking like new.
It's no coincidence that stainless is used in hospitals and restaurants - it's proven to be the lest germ harboring material.
