Types of Cabinets
Cabinets form the backbone of the kitchen and may add value, function and beauty to your kitchen. In its simplest form, a cabinet is just a box on the wall. Yet, after layout, the next most important factor in kitchen design is the choice of cabinets.
There are three types of basic cabinets: wall, base and tall. Variations on these basic cabinets will function to store specific cookware, display art or dishware and reinforce a style with special cabinet design.
Cabinets can be combined to form another cabinet type. For example, stacked wall cabinets can form a tall utility or pantry cabinet that reaches from floor to ceiling. Combining base and wall cabinets for an island can create a unique design. A drawer base cabinet can be stacked with a wall cabinet to configure a wall oven cabinet. Combinations of basic cabinets can be used to create an endless assortment of custom kitchens.
