Types Of Kitchen Cabinets
Kitchen cabinets are undoubtedly the major piece in the modern kitchen puzzle. Other pieces include lighting, faucets and other accessories. A lot goes into the selection of the perfect kitchen unit design that maximises the available space and still looks great.
There are different types of kitchen cabinets but they can be split into 3 major types.
Base Kitchen Cabinets
As the name suggests base kitchen cabinets are positioned directly on the floor. These support the countertop from below after it has been laid atop the cabinets. You can also install the sink within the base cabinets, along with other appliances such as dishwashers.
Base kitchen cabinets are versatile in nature — think drawers, pull-outs, shelved cabinets, lazy susans, etc.
Wall Kitchen Cabinets
Wall kitchen cabinets are mounted on the wall with the help of screws. These can be the most appealing and decorative part of your modern kitchen. You can also extend wall kitchen cabinets to the ceiling, to store items that are not used frequently. These are used to store all your food items or kitchen accessories and appliances that are not too bulky.
Tall Kitchen Cabinets
These are also called utility or pantry cabinets. They can either extend from the floor to the ceiling or can be free-standing pieces. Since these have a very functional purpose, you’ll never be short of storage space. These are also great to organise all your unmanageable items and to have them on-hand always. You can also accommodate ovens and microwaves in these cabinets.
