Guide to Choosing the Right Style of Kitchen Cabinets Drawers – Whether you’re building a house or remodeling your present kitchen, you may need to consider the style of kitchen drawers in your cabinets. There are more types of kitchen drawers than most people think, and some solve everyday problems with ease. Read on!
In almost every kitchen, there will be a corner or two. Having drawers there sometimes presents a problem, as you have to close one to open the other. However, kitchen drawers are made to be installed in corners. These drawers fit into the corner but pull out as one Drawer with the front made into a V-shape to follow the corner line. This makes everything easy to access throughout the Drawer, and they are spacious as well.
These are deep drawers that can hold separate storage bins. Many people use them to hide their kitchen rubbish bins. The Drawer not only keeps the container out of sight but also keeps any smells contained. Some are made with a mechanism that allows the Drawer to be opened with a push instead of a pull.
This will enable you to open the Drawer with a knee when both hands are full. Depending on your plumbing configuration, you may be able to have one installed under the sink, which is handy for getting rid of vegetable scraps and the like while you are washing and cutting them.
This wooden board pulls out like a drawer, providing extra space for loading dinner plates, letting something cool, or extra prep space.
This Drawer works like a regular drawer, but the front can be lowered to create a shelf. This is especially useful for moving things around and getting to items in the back of the Drawer or a resting place for the first few items when removing several things from the Drawer.
These drawers work more as storage for dry goods, such as rice, cereals, or beans. The glass front lets you tell what’s in each Drawer with a glance. You can keep a cup or scoop inside each one to quickly remove the amount you need while cooking. Some even come with a small section in the front that’s kept full so that the contents are always visible and easy to identify.
If you’ve ever found that your phone or laptop is running low on power while trying to follow a recipe you’ve seen online and had to unplug one kitchen appliance to plug in your charger, you’ll find this solution just right. Charging drawers have built-in charging ports in the back for promoting your electronic devices.
Since phones and similar items tend to get warm while charging, you may want to install a vent or even drill a few holes in the bottom of the Drawer for air circulation to charge your devices with the Drawer closed.
This deep Drawer is usually installed in a corner but only sometimes. It’s made to hold kitchen appliances you don’t often use, such as a blender. You’ll find it’s much easier to lift a device from a drawer rather than drag it out from the back of a cabinet. It will also help give you more countertop space to hold your daily appliances.
This can be configured in many ways, but one handy design is two or three shallow drawers stacked up to hold what children need daily. They can store lunch bags, spare pens and pencils, extra notebooks, snack bars, drinks, and whatever they need for school or homework daily.
Even finished tasks can be stored there in the evening, ready to grab for school the following day. This cuts down on spending time looking for needed items each morning.
When working on your kitchen design, consider the types of drawers that might be useful in your life and see what kinds are available. Not only will your kitchen be more helpful, but you’ll cut down on the time you have to spend in it so that you can enjoy other things. Who knows, you may even make your friends jealous.
