The company produces custom kitchen cabinets, which means they can be of any size, colour, etc. But how to choose the right, how to use all the room space correctly and at the same time maintain an attractive appearance. Well, let’s figure it out and tell you the secrets in choosing beautiful kitchen cabinets.
What is necessary to be done before choosing kitchen cabinets?
Determine the exact configuration of the room. It is important to know not only the size of the kitchen but also the features of its geometry. Only in this case the headset will emphasize all the advantages of the space and hide its disadvantages.
Choose the technique you will use. An oven, hob, and refrigerator are a must in the kitchen. The rest of the equipment is selected in accordance with your wishes and financial capabilities. And if a kettle or a coffee maker can be placed on the working kitchen surfaces, then for a multicooker, dishwasher, and microwave oven it is better to provide a special niche or even a separate cabinet.
Define the style of the kitchen. Even the most beautiful set that does not match the design of the walls, ceiling, or floor will lose its aesthetic appeal.
Think about the placement of all furniture items. The kitchen set is a single whole. You cannot “scatter” its individual elements throughout the room and get a harmonious space. The number and location of cabinet modules should be considered in advance.
Determine the design of the kitchen. Modern furniture can be made with any number of elements. You just need to determine exactly what they will be. Kitchen furniture can include not only shelves and cabinets but also such useful elements as a bar counter, roll-out table, hidden storage systems, bottle holders, column cabinets, and others.
How to start choosing kitchen cabinets?
We recommend you to start choosing a kitchen cabinets by defining large elements (lines):
Bottom line (base). It includes base cabinets and a curbstone. The bottom line also includes such appliances as a dishwasher and an oven. Bottom Line Modules are designed to store items that are not used regularly. As a rule, wardrobes are equipped with hinged doors. This option is the most affordable, but also you can use drawers. They allow you to quickly evaluate the cell filling and find what you need. Drawers and cabinets can be combined for customer desired.
Middle line (working). It includes a worktop, sink, and hob. It is very important to determine the optimal height for such a line. It is not necessary to place the worktop at the same height as the hob.
Top line (hinged). These are various shelves and cabinets. Here, its depth becomes an important parameter of the kitchen set. Do not place too deep furniture on top. You just won’t be able to reach all stuff that you put there.
Vertical line. Usually, it is made in the form of one element – a column cabinet. Typically, such furniture in the kitchen takes up the entire space from floor to ceiling. A correctly designed vertical line can visually increase the height of the room and structure the headset itself.
How to locate kitchen cabinets in the room space?
To correctly think over the location of the kitchen cabinets, you need to consider:
• Dimensions of the room.
• Space stylistics.
• Degree of illumination, etc.
Consider the features of models of various types and decide which rooms fit perfectly.
Straight kitchen sets. Such furniture is ideal for a small space:
U-shaped kitchen. Furniture in this arrangement takes place against three walls. One of the zones (usually working) is located in front of the window. This option is ideal for large rooms and allows you to get enough light during the cooking process.
Island layout of the headset. In this case, one of the surfaces is located in the middle of the room. This option is ideal only in rooms with an area of 30 square meters or more.
The appearance of kitchen cabinets
When determining the optimal appearance of kitchen cabinets, it is important to consider the colour of the furniture.
Consider the features of various colors and their combinations:
Monochrome kitchen cabinets combinations. Such furniture for modern kitchens is becoming one of the most popular. Moreover, it is not necessary to be limited to only one colour. Furniture looks great in blue and light blue, green, and turquoise shades. Moreover, various shades allow you to effectively zone the space. Bright accents will give opportunities to make the interior not boring!
Contrast kitchen cabinets. Any contrasting option is stylish, bright, and memorable. Finding the right combination is not as easy as it seems at first glance. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with materials in various magazines and websites. It is better to look and compare the shades before ordering not from catalogs, but “live”. Ask the manufacturer for material samples. Either way, remember that black and white, green and red, blue (or purple) and yellow, orange and blue are great contrasts. But, do not get carried away with contrasts. If you use bright colour combinations when decorating the kitchen area, then make the dining group more restrained. Otherwise, you may experience discomfort.
Kitchen cabinets in adjacent colours. These colours are located side by side in the spectrum. With such kitchen units, you will always be surrounded by harmony. The neighbourhood of adjacent tones is very organic and attractive. Feel free to combine colours such as purple and blue, orange and yellow, turquoise, and blue.
