Every once in a while we have been challenged with trying to adjust a customer’s kitchen or bathroom cabinet doors that will not close. There are several reasons for this. Perhaps I can address your particular situation and offer a solution to the problem.
Freestanding Units If you are working with a “freestanding” cupboard that is not fastened to the wall, your problem could be that the cabinet is racked out of kilter. Push on the top left or right side of the unit and see if it helps the situation any. If it does, you will need to place shims underneath the bottom of one corner of the cabinet.

Structured and textured cabinets are essentially the opposite of high gloss cabinets. Instead of smooth and shiny these are coarse and matte. Consequently giving the doors and drawers a more natural look and feel. While high gloss is still quite common in kitchens and bathrooms, when one is trying to achieve a more organic design they tend to go with a more textured or structured door.
Over the years structured and textured cabinet doors and drawers have become a common occurrence in modern kitchen and bathrooms. The lovely textures bring movement and depth to a bathroom or kitchen without being too loud.
In addition to structured and textured cabinets, contemporary style is also represented by cool colors, a relaxing atmosphere, stone surfaces, and elements inspired by nature. The ultimate goal is to combine a lovely ambiance and a beautiful appearance with practical functionality.
