Whether you’re leaning toward contemporary or traditional kitchen design, there are certain elements that your kitchen cabinet design should have. In this blog, The Kitchen Store takes a closer look at these essential design elements.
There really is no reason why your kitchen cabinets shouldn’t have drawers. They’re easy to build, easy to use, and visually appealing. Drawers can be used to store anything, from silverware to cooking utensils. It’s also the easiest-to-open type of kitchen compartment and can be opened using one hand. Drawers also work in any kitchen cabinet design and they’re easy to reface as needed.
While step open trash bins serve the purpose, it can get in the way, especially if you need a large one for your kitchen. A trash pull-out keeps the trash bins out of sight and promotes better hygiene as it will not be as exposed as a separate trash bin. With the right front panel design, trash pull-outs can be easily integrated into traditional cabinet designs.
You can also do the same for your spice rack. Instead of a wall-mounted rack, a slim pull-out can be made for the different spices in your kitchen, from essentials like salt, pepper and cooking oil to dried herbs and pasta. A slim compartment like the spice pull-out lets you maximize storage by using such tight spaces.
Vertical dividers allow maximum use of vertical space by letting you store and access large and wide items in cabinets. Large trays, pizza pans and chopping boards become much easier to store and organize. Not stacking these items also prevents dents and trapped moisture, which happens when plates and other flat objects of dissimilar sizes and shapes are stacked. Removable vertical dividers make it easier to customize storage width depending on what you’re putting into the cabinets.
