Aluminium is lightweight yet sturdy; it’s also easy to maintain and doesn’t rust. So why are we not using it in our kitchens? It turns out that certain misconceptions about the material are causing homeowners to shy away from aluminium kitchens.

Myth: The common misconception is that aluminium kitchen cabinets look cold and metallic like stainless steel. That’s not true.
