The Most Beautiful and Practical Kitchen Cabinet Solutions

Designing a new kitchen can be a big and expensive venture, but as long as you keep the look and the practical design of your kitchen cabinets in mind when you are coming up with ideas, then the end result should be one of which you are very proud.

Make it Sociable

The layout of your kitchen will reflect its main use. Remember that kitchens can be very sociable spaces and in order to make it a fun space to spend with friends and family, you need to keep it open and uncluttered. By installing plenty of storage you can keep social space clear and ready for meals together. Installing corner cabinets can also create a cozy space in which you can spend time together.

Have Space for Gadgets

If you have high tech kitchen gadgets, then keeping them on display is easy with glass kitchen cabinets. The glass not only makes it easier to find all your kitchen appliances, but it also maximizes your kitchen space and brings light in from every corner of the room.

Efficient Layout

Always plan your layout for your kitchen before finalizing the design. Keep the sink, food preparation area and oven within easy reach of one another and keep plenty of storage by each to make sure you have easy access to cutlery, utensils, crockery, pots and pans etc.

Open Plan and Calm

An open plan kitchen is a great way of creating the illusion of more space, and can also create a real sense of serenity within the room. Open up the kitchen and dining room and create an open plan kitchen diner where the family can all cook, sit and eat together. For an open plan storage solution, you can add an island in the kitchen or storage underneath a breakfast bar.

Colors to Make Space

If you have a small kitchen space, then sticking to pale colors is a great way of maximizing the reflection of light and space in a room. Pick a pastel color palette for a soft and calm space, using creams and whites to bring lots of natural light into the room. Cabinets made of sleek contemporary materials or painted with gloss are ideal for reflecting light and giving the illusion of more space and can make even small kitchens look a lot bigger.

Suitable for Kids

A kitchen can be a fun space as well as a practical one, so you will need to take this into account when picking suitable cabinets and color schemes for the room. Bright colors can appeal to both children and adults and make the kitchen a much more fun space to cook and eat in. If you are all about encouraging your children to take part in the cooking process then making cabinets accessible (i.e. keeping pots and pans low down) can make it much easier for them to get involved. The “soft close” cabinets are also a great way of preventing injuries in the kitchen and you never need to worry about hearing slamming cupboard doors again!
