Converting a kitchen set with your own hands

The kitchen is the most visited place in the apartment. Therefore, the kitchen set very quickly loses its attractive appearance:

  • the doors bend, curl, swell and crack because of temperature changes and exposure to moisture,
  • erased the outer layer of the countertop,
  • on the body and the facade part adhere drops of fat, dust and dirt,
  • rusted handles and other metal accessories.
