What kind of kitchen cabinet should you choose?
There are a lot of factors that determine what kind of a kitchen cabinet you ultimately choose. This would be your budget, the space and dimensions of your kitchen, the way you like to have your storage and supplies organized, your favorite materials, color schemes, etc.
What is the advantage of kitchen cabinets?
Kitchen cabinets are one of the most needed areas of the kitchen. They help to store away materials that you use for your day-to-day cooking needs as well as take care of the supplies that you use on a less frequent basis. They are used as storage for foods that are non-perishables, cooking supplies such as oils, spices, condiments, as well as kitchen appliances and dinnerware.
Here are the different types of cabinets and the wall cabinet seems to be the most popular among them.
What should you keep in mind when choosing a kitchen wall cabinet?
● Make sure there is sufficient space between your kitchen countertops and the wall cabinet. There should be enough space to keep your essential kitchen appliances (if you are placing them on the countertop) as also some of your kitchen supplies such as bottles of oil, vinegar, etc. (if you store them on the countertop).
● The area on top of a kitchen cabinet is prone to dust and dirt. Unless you plan on getting a ladder and cleaning out this area regularly, you could opt for the easy way out and extend the cabinet all the way to the ceiling.
● Incorporate space saving solutions into your wall cabinets. These could be things like slide out drawers and carousels. A Lazy Susan is perfect to utilize corner space.
● Choose the kind of material that you will be using for the kitchen cabinet carefully. This has to be durable as well as resistant to stains and easy to clean as well.
● The color of your kitchen wall cabinet can affect the entire ambience and mood of your kitchen. Cabinets in colors that complement the countertop make the kitchen have a cohesive look. You could go for contrasting colors and shades to keep the look interesting.
● Kitchen design for wall cabinets should not be kept close to windows in order to allow maximum light into the kitchen.
