What is a Kitchen Cabinet?

A kitchen cabinet is a cupboard or chest of drawers that is built into the kitchen for storing kitchen items such as dishes and silverware.

Kitchen Cabinet and Design

As we’ve stated, your choice of kitchen cabinet influences the design of your kitchen, and as such you need to consider a number of factors before you purchase a kitchen cabinet. You should consider the fact that a kitchen cabinet is quite an investment as you are expected to use one for a period of 10 years or more. This means that even if you want to change the design of your home in the future, you might still have to maintain the kitchen cabinet. Quality is also an important factor to consider when selecting kitchen cabinets as well as who to buy it from. You want to ensure that you are purchasing top quality kitchen cabinets. Generally speaking, handmade cabinets tend to be extremely durable, although they are quite pricey.

This is why you should employ the services of an expert designer in selecting your kitchen cabinet. There are many styles and types of cabinets to choose from, from kitchen cabinets that hang on the wall to those that can double as a table at the center of the table, there are endless choices.

A kitchen designer would take a look at the rest of your house as well talk to you to determine your personal preferences to ensure that the choice of kitchen design complements your home and meets your needs and expectations.

A lot of factors determine how any kitchen is set up but there are some tools and utensils everyone must have in a kitchen. Having an excellently designed kitchen also pimps the overall outlook of a house. If you have a taste for what is trendy then European Kitchen design will fit you perfectly.
Here are some features of a European Kitchen
  1. Minimalist Style

    The European kitchen cabinets are usually simpler than other styles of cabinets. They usually look much modern having less depth and visual appeal. The cabinets can’t accommodate a lot of things because of its size. One other feature of this minimalist style is the absence of hardware in the kitchen and this makes the kitchen look much spacious and clean. So, when you have to open drawers or doors, you have to do it from the top or bottom.
  2. Smaller Spaces

    If you own a big home a European kitchen style may not be advisable for you. It usually works better for young or retired couples, singles, townhouses etc. A lot of the homes in Europe are quite small and typically the kitchens and small too. They build the kitchen smaller because Europeans don't store food in bulk rather a lot of their food is bought weekly. Because they see cooking in front of guest as inappropriate there is no need for a lot of kitchen space for sitting.
  3. Shutters for Windows

    European Kitchens usually have shutters because it needs a lot of light and because it is small, it needs more air. However, if it does not make sense to have shutters, then you can opt for casement windows instead.
Having a European kitchen style does not mean you cannot explore with your favorite colors. With the help of experts at German Kitchen Center, we can help you pick the color palette that meets your taste and also aligns with other kitchen utensils like pots, jars, cutlery, kitchenware etc.

Kitchen Cabinets

Modern Kitchen Cabinets

One of the most important components of the kitchen design is the cabinet. It is the biggest and most visible part of the kitchen structure. In some kitchen designs, the cabinet is the only thing visible in the kitchen. The size and structure of the kitchen cabinet are determined by the size of your kitchen space and your design preference.

There are mainly three kinds of basic cabinets.
  1. Base Cabinets: They are installed on the floor and serve as support for the kitchen islands
  2. Wall Cabinets: As the name implies, it is a cabinet installed on the wall and the designs are flexible. It can be stacked as tall as the roof to accommodate kitchen items not used frequently
  3. Tall cabinets: This is also called a pantry or utility cabinet, it is bigger than the wall cabinet having the space to accommodate appliances like ovens and microwaves.

Sometimes, cabinet designs are formed from just a single kind of design while other time, it is a combination of two or more classifications. When basic cabinets are combined uniquely, it becomes a custom design. Another important part of the cabinet design is the finishing. We have cabinet finishes like painted finishes, stained finishes, white cabinets, black cabinets, maple cabinets, mission oak etc. The finish you choose is determined by your budget and what you think is best suited to your needs.

After installing the cabinet, you need to know the basics of maintaining the cabinet so it last longer. We don't want a situation where you have to remodel every 6 months because the cabinets keep getting damaged, it damages our reputation as your designer. So, here are a few maintenance steps :
  1. Immediately after installation, clean the cabinets with a soft damp cloth and dry with another cloth. Using a high-quality polish, wipe in the direction of the wood grain.
  2. Try to avoid building up grime and grease on the cabinets, this can be done by cleaning the cabinets regularly using a soft damp cloth every week. The frequency of basic cleaning is determined by how much you use the kitchen but a wipe down must be done at least once a week
  3. For tougher stains, you can use the dishwasher soap to help get rid of the stains or mix baking soda with water. For sticky stains, mixing water with vinegar will help a lot.
  4. When there is spillage, do not let it linger before wiping it off
  5. Try to stop substance like Solvents, nail polish remover, ammonia, bleach and much more from touching any part of the cabinet
  6. Do not use harsh cleaning agents and always dry with a cloth to avoid moisture

The kitchen cabinet is important not just for its aesthetic value but also because it is quite functional. Your choice cabinet must be sturdy enough to handle any dishware, kitchenware, or cookware you use at home. You need to install a kitchen cabinet that is the perfect balance between functions and outlook and this might be quite difficult to achieve without having expert designers at German Kitchen Center in your corner.
