No two homes are the same, and the perfect kitchen cupboards for one Pretoria home will differ greatly from the cupboards in another. Kitchen cupboards should optimise your kitchen space, and if yours has awkward dimensions or are too small, you could increase the area by installing corner cabinets. Here’s what to consider if you’re interested in this option.
Many homeowners assume that corner cabinets are only fit to be used as pantries, which most don’t want or need, as they feel it makes stored items inaccessible and forgettable. This doesn’t have to be the case, provided its designed and installed correctly.
The first thing we recommend is installing an angled corner cabinet with the ability to be opened in a circular motion to allow all-around access. As you can pack a considerable amount into this type of cabinet, it’s a great place for awkwardly shaped appliances or large pots and pans.
For even more storage space, opt for a corner cabinet that can be spun or pulled out. Unlike the previous corner cabinet type, this cabinet rotates outwards, instead of in a circular motion, so you can have a top and bottom shelf moving individually, with the top or bottom extending over/under the other. This option is better for storing smaller items.
An advanced pull-out cabinet will maximise every inch of corner space available. It consists of one shelf pulling out when the cabinet door is opened, and another sitting behind it. If you have a deep, pentagonal corner space you can use this type of cabinet to get great storage space, and seeing as this option provides less visibility, it’s better for storing items that are used infrequently.
Not all corner cabinets have to be completely practical. An open corner cabinet is a great way to display antique or special glass and tableware that would normally gather dust in a cupboard. You can also opt for glass doors for a gallery appearance, or ‘floating’ cabinets for smaller kitchens, as they take up less visual space.
As you can see, corner cabinets can add value to almost any area. It all starts with a unique design that takes your space and dimensions into consideration, so contact Cupboard Value Pretoria today to create the perfect corner cabinets for your kitchen.
