Cabinets for The Kitchen
Cabinets are the backbone to any kitchen because they add function and beauty. You have three basic choices when it comes to cabinets: wall, base, and tall. The basic functions of these styles are to store cookware, display dishware, or emphasize a style with a cabinet design. Combining the basic styles create custom cabinet looks. Stacking wall cabinets can create a utility or pantry, or even create an island by combining base and wall cabinets.
Let’s talk more about the three basic cabinet types.
Types of Cabinets
Base cabinets are the foot print of a floor plan in your kitchen and take the brunt of everyday activities. They are mounted to the floor and support your countertops and everything else that is on top. Most kitchen islands are made of base cabinets that are combined and installed on site.
If the obvious was not stated, wall cabinets are mounted to the wall. The design flexibility is almost endless, you can choose different heights, custom depth, multiple widths, and different door options, and really the possibilities are endless. You can combine base and wall cabinets to make an accent wall that stores cookware and cookbooks or whatever else you’d need.
Tall cabinets can extend from floor to ceiling. A pantry can provide as much as 4 cubic feet or even more for storage. From small to big appliances, a pantry can store a lot, and tall utility cabinets can be made to fit large appliances such as ovens or microwaves.
