Remodeling a kitchen means looking for new and updated kitchen cabinets and storage units. You want to choose your cabinets with your kitchen in mind. Think about what will make life easier for you when you work in the kitchen, as well as, the style and the atmosphere you want to create.
What type of cabinets do you need?
There are many types of cabinets, and they all serve a purpose. Designing a kitchen with purpose will make the final product efficient and fashion forward. Be strategic in your choices. Look for cabinets that will serve a specific function and then find the exterior style that you love.
Look for storage that is easy to use. Many homeowners are looking to drawers as the most efficient type of storage in a modern kitchen. With cabinets, you frequently have to be a contortionist to reach the stuff at the back, especially in the bottom cabinets. Drawers mean that you never have to get down on the ground to find what you need. They are simple, effective, and ergonomic. Think of all the money you’ll save on future physical therapy?
Pull out drawers in cabinets
We don’t want you to give up on traditional cabinets completely. They are beautiful and classic and come in any style. A kitchen is not complete without a few cabinets. However, when it comes to the interior of your cabinets, we’re going to point you back to the ease of drawers. Get pull out drawers inside your cabinets to make life easier for yourself. You can utilize every inch of your cabinet if you can pull the drawer out and see everything inside. That can be especially useful for organizing and storing spices, or other pantry type items.
While we’re at it, having a designated trash cabinet with a pullout function is going to make “taking out the trash” much simpler. And, you’re less likely to miss the can if you can pull it out and drop in the trash.
Don’t always think about storage in horizontal lines. Having a lot of cutting boards is essential in a kitchen, but they are hard to store. Typically, we end up taking up some counter space and wall space by stacking the cutting boards up against the wall. Create a designated storage space for cutting boards by having vertical dividers in a cabinet.
Corners have long been neglected in kitchen design. With custom storage you can utilize every odd angle and every weird space, giving yourself a bit more storage that flows flawlessly with each area in the kitchen.
