3 ways you can accidentally damage wooden kitchen floor cabinets

Replacing a kitchen's cabinets is typically one of the most expensive renovation costs. Though wooden kitchen wall cabinets come with their own pesky list of items to avoid--such as steam-billowing hot pots and coffee makers--kitchen floor cabinets made of wood can be easily damaged accidentally in ways your wall cabinets never will.

1.The downside of a clean oven

Regardless of the finish on your cabinets, most wood cabinet manufacturers will explicitly tell you that oven cleaner is terrible for your cabinets. If you're still without the convenience of a self-cleaning oven, use aluminum foil to shield the floor cabinets that flank your oven when you spray on cleaner.

2. Kitchen floor cabinets and the dreaded dishtowel

Whether your dishtowel has found a home hanging through a drawer or cabinet handle or on a hook affixed to your end cabinet, you should move it. Repeated exposure to a damp dishtowel can damage the finish of the wood cabinets or cause the wood to expand or warp.

3. Save the bleach for the toilet

Though that burning scent of bleach may tell you your kitchen floors have been disinfected, the fragrance should also tell you your floor cabinets just got damaged. In addition to ruining the finish and damaging the wood, bleach can cause some species of wood like white oak to change color. Not only would your floor cabinets need to be replaced before your wall cabinets, they could display variations of the same color in the meantime.

The best way to avoid the expense of replacing kitchen floor cabinets is to keep the ones you currently have from getting ruined.
