Kitchen cabinets provide storage space for food, dishes and cookware while keeping your workspace tidy and organized. Once for utilitarian purposes your kitchen cabinets have evolved to become a reflection of the overall design of the home. Every kitchen should have the following 3 types of kitchen cabinets to maximize its’ functionality. Here to help out is Seaside Cabinetry & Design.
The lower cabinets or base cabinets form the footprint of your kitchen are mounted to the floor with openings for appliances like the fridge and stove and house the dishwasher and sink as well. Supporting the countertops, the work surface you will use on a daily basis, contain sets of drawers and provide easier access when handling heavier items like pots and pans. A kitchen island in your design is built from base cabinets and installed onsite.
Placed above your base cabinets and fixed to the wall are the upper cabinets, allowing convenience for storing dishes, glasses and any food items used more frequently. If storage in a smaller space or lots of storage space is needed the upper cabinets can be designed to make use of the full height of wall even to the ceiling. Kitchen design elements can have glass doors on some cupboards to display special dishes acting as a china cabinet while cabinets with regular doors will protect fragile or costly items. Primarily for food storage and items used everyday, baking supplies, flour, sugar and baking pans can be stored in cabinets that are less accessible.
Pantry/Utility Tall Cabinets
Installing a pantry or utility cupboard provides more storage than a lower and upper cabinet if you put those 2 together, with a full length cabinet from floor to ceiling you gain better storage. Small appliances kept in the utility cabinet keep countertops free of clutter and keep the kitchen looking tidier giving you more usable work surface. Great for storing extra canned goods, cleaning supplies, brooms even the microwave can be incorporated into the layout of this cupboard.
Whether you’re in the planning stages of a new build or remodeling your present kitchen the choices are only limited by one’s imagination. A kitchen designer can offer suggestions for a more functional layout, different cabinet door finishes, door hardware and countertops to suit your individual taste and budget.
