With state of the art designs, these cabinet drawers and doors promise to make every square inch of your kitchen usable, hide spots that tend toward unsightly, and even accent the distinctiveness of your personal style. Get ready to enhance your kitchen design with these innovative features.
Innovative Kitchen Cabinet Drawers
While this may not be that special something for everyone, glass front drawers can actually make your kitchen appear larger while helping you stay organized and keep your kitchen neat and tidy. Glass front drawers are ideal for storing dry food items like pasta, rice, and beans, transforming the food into a unique part of your kitchen design. And these innovative drawers feature a two to three-inch space in front which stays full and keeps your kitchen looking great, even when it is time to head to the store for refills.
Corner drawers offer the solution to those corner cabinets that make you bend, twist, and crawl your way to access their hidden contents. These corner drawers may have the appearance of the classic corner cabinet, but in truth, they pull out form the corner completely, exposing your fully accessible kitchen wares perfectly.
Custom drawers allow you to design your own look and display your creative side. Not for the faint of heart, custom drawers can be fashioned from anything you enjoy or appreciate from wooden fruit or vegetable crates to industrial tool box drawers.
Inventive Kitchen Cabinet Doors
Flip-up doors, also known as parallel lift doors, feature hydraulics to raise the cabinet door as opposed to opening then sideways in traditional fashion. Typically flip-up doors are used for special functions in places the door needs to get out of the way.
Track doors allow you to get rid of your classic swinging cabinet doors. Track doors move from side to side easily thanks to a ball-bearing track. These cabinet doors allow you to slide the doors in front of one another, so you can easily access the inside of the cabinet.
Pocket doors, like the ones on your home’s doorways, can be used to cover prep areas or storage areas for frequently used task-oriented items. Like traditional doorways, a pocket built into each side of the cabinet hides the door when open. When the doors are closed, they look just like your other cabinet doors.
Tambour doors, also known as “garage” doors, look great and are the perfect doors for making you coffee maker, toaster, and blender disappear when you aren’t using them. Generally, these doors open from top to bottom, though some open from the side, and slide on a track built into the cabinet. Tambour doors roll over thin strips of wood into the top of the cabinet when opened.
Among the popular kitchen cabinet door style are sliding doors. Sliding doors, as the name implies, slide horizontally left or right revealing food preparation or storage space in your kitchen. Held in place and functioning with specialty hinges attached to the bottom, top, and middle, help to completely hide whatever is inside. The hardware needed for these doors tends to be costly, but it is well worth the costs because of the convenience they deliver and the fact that regardless of what is behind the door, your kitchen will always look clean and tidy.
