Knowing Your Kitchen Cabinets Inside And Out

Cabinetry Organization


Who knew that the classic saying “it’s what’s inside that counts” could be applied to kitchen cabinets? While discussions of kitchen cabinetry tend to circle around the aesthetic qualities of materiality, colour, form, and texture, the less visible realm of cabinet interiors has quietly been evolving.


Preliminary Work When redesigning your cabinetry system it is important to first think about the layout. Organizing your kitchen to best suit the way it is used is a great way to save time and space. When it comes to cabinets, you will need to determine where all of your appliances, cookware and food should go before arriving at a design. Consider what you use most frequently, what items are used in conjunction and what equipment or dishware is rarely accessed. By pre-determining where everything will go, the cabinets can be designed to accommodate their contents.

Personalizing Your Cabinets After deciding on the general layout of your kitchen, it's time to find storage solutions that will bring your ideas to life. In most cases, cabinet organization is hidden behind closed doors, however, some designs have begun making their way to the surface.  Some of these designs are open or glass-faced cabinets, labelled drawers or cupboards, and wine racks or fridges. These visual features reflect your personal interests and style, creating a unique space.

If you are looking to add a change in texture or colour, try inserting baskets into the cabinet system. On top of the materiality that this brings, baskets can serve as ideal storage containers for towels and other small-scale items.

Open cabinetry allows you to showcase your favourite dishware. For the less aesthetically pleasing items, added baskets serve as ideal hideaways. 


Including baskets in your cabinet design adds texture and variety to your space.

Reclaiming Your Countertop With Cabinet Storage Solutions Cabinet organization systems mostly focus on efficient uses of space and easy accessibility. Recently, designers have taken this one step further and come up with innovative ways ideas to incorporate almost everything into your cabinetry. These solutions free up floor and counter space, giving your kitchen a clean look. In line with these ideas is the trend towards hidden appliances. Concealing fridges, dishwashers and other equipment serves to maintain the form and colour of your cabinetry throughout the entire kitchen. This can be done by adding extra cabinet facings to the front of your appliances.
