How Much Weight Can Your Kitchen Cabinet Hold?

Kitchen cabinets are one of the most important parts of your kitchen, both from a functional as well as an aesthetic standpoint. If your existing cabinets are old, worn down or otherwise not meeting your needs, replacing them is a worthwhile investment that can take your whole kitchen to a new level.

 Kitchen Cabinet Hold

When planning your cabinet replacement, you’ll need to factor in how much weight your new cabinets can safely hold. Here’s a quick guide to help you plan your project.

How Much Weight Can Your Kitchen Cabinets Safely Hold?

Kitchen cabinets approved by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association can safely handle up to 600 pounds of weight, or around 272 kilograms. However, most manufacturers have their own set of limits and guarantees, which is why some cabinets that can handle only up to 500 pounds of weight. Make sure you understand exactly how much your new cabinets can safely hold, and take this into consideration when planning how and where to store your pots and pans, dishes and other kitchen items. Avoid damage by storing kitchen items neatly and by not overloading the cabinets.

What Features Should You Look For?

Durable kitchen cabinet frames are more stable and can handle more weight than second-rate cabinets like those made from particle-board. Consider investing in all-plywood cabinets with furniture boards since they have been proven to be the best materials time and time again. They retain their shape and appearance for many years despite heavy everyday use and ongoing exposure to moisture.
