The number of different pots and pans, cutlery, glassware and appliances in most kitchens can be mind-boggling. So is the task to organize everything neatly to help you find just what you need, when you need it. The trick lies in the grouping. When you arrange similar items in clusters in cabinets, meal preparation becomes easier.

The number of different pots and pans, cutlery, glassware and appliances in most kitchens can be mind-boggling. So is the task to organize everything neatly to help you find just what you need, when you need it. The trick lies in the grouping.

Cabinets take up the bulk of space in a kitchen. The budget to design them can take up a large chunk of your remodelling budget. The design you pick sets the tone for the rest of your kitchen. It is imperative to make it cohesive and create storage cabinets that are both aesthetic and functional. But when the space is limited or you need a makeover, planning can get challenging. Need a hand and a head to help you? Here you go. 

Stock vs Semi-Custom


Stock cabinets are cheaper and more convenient to install because they are pre-made. Many of them may require assembly. They come in a wide range of dimensions to give you several options to choose from. If you are looking for a unique design or exact width to avoid wasted space, semi-custom units may be a better choice. But be prepared for higher costs for semi-custom units and a longer delivery time. While custom cabinets take about a week to be delivered, prefabricated units could take as much as 10 weeks for your shipment to arrive.

Base Cabinets


Base cabinets come in different configurations to help you organize items of varying shapes and sizes. It really depends on your needs. Wall cabinets can extend from ceiling to floor. Large shelves help you place bulky items such as paper towels. Deep drawers can hold pots, pans and cookware. Install the cabinet closer to the stove so you don’t have to dart to the other end of the kitchen to bring out a pan while cooking. Pull-out shallow drawers are perfect for knives and cutlery. Place them near the countertop or kitchen island to ease food preparation. Place dishes and glassware in a cabinet near the dishwasher. Make sure the drawers can be pulled out without hitting the door or coming in the way of traffic. 

Deep-Sized Cabinets


Think about all the vessels you have when you plan the configuration of the storage. Pasta pots, steamers, blenders and jugs need to be easily accessible with the pull of a knob. Another convenient design is an extra-large cabinet with slide-out metal shelves to create another space when you need. When you buy items for your kitchen, you may need to think carefully about which cabinet they will go into before purchasing. Deep size cabinets allow super-sized cookware to fit in easily. 

Secret Shelves


The design of your kitchen cabinets can make working long hours in the kitchen either a pleasure or a tedious chore. The more organized you are, the better. Optional features such as concealed shelves are aesthetically appealing and convenient. Slim pull-out pantry shelves, slats for oven pans and trays, spring-loaded shelves that swing out for larger items such as a blender, and Lazy Susan’s that spin around at the touch of a finger to reach the rear shelves are all interior cabinet designs you can keep in mind for custom creations. You can hang cookware from adjustable hooks and create a cabinet over them to keep dust and prying eyes away. Cabinet lighting can help you locate the contents more easily in the dark.
