Any kitchen basically involves 3 fundamental areas of work. These 3 fundamental areas come together to form the Work Triangle of a kitchen space. The three points are the stove, the sink, and the refrigerator. These three points were chosen keeping in mind their usages which makes them the three necessary items in any kitchen décor;the stove for cooking, the sink for cleaning, and the refrigerator for storing. If these three are there, everything else is just additional and based on the taste of the individual.
Be it for any of these 3 storages, kitchen cabinets can be used to give them the perfect application and usage. Be it for storing utensils, spices or other kitchen paraphernalia, kitchen cabinetry due to its customizable nature can be used in numerous ways for storage and utility.
Let’s find out how kitchen cabinets can be incorporated in each of these storages, one by one:
1. The Stove storage: The stove is where all the magic happens. So, it is only natural that you would want to have a place for stovetop pans and pots and things you use in the oven too. This can be done perfectly by opting for pull out drawer kitchen cabinets which allow you to store the above-mentioned utensils.
You can opt for pull-out spice racks on the top cabinets in order to make it easy to reach for them when needed.
Additional: A great decision would be to opt for a countertop beside your stove which will enable you to transfer food from the stove to the serving trays.
2. The Sink Storage: Naturally the sink should have the dishwater close to it. And, by extension, you would need a place to store the dishes, plates, and bowls after they are washed. Opting for a set of glass-door upper antique white kitchen cabinets lets you store them directly over the sink. The glass door allows you to showcase your collection in a perfect manner. Another thing you can do is to work out the trash in this area. Instead of having a dustbin or can under the sink, you can opt for a trash drawer cabinet design as a better and more discreet option.
3. The refrigerator storage: The refrigerator storage is basically the space around the refrigerator and not inside it. It is suggested to have this area closest to the point from where you enter with your daily groceries. This will help you avoid crossing the other storage zones especially if someone else is using the kitchen.
If you have a larger empty space around the refrigerator, you can easily opt for white kitchen cabinets that can be used for storing your pantry items. You can opt for pull-out drawers too if you want. Whether you go for a full pantry cabinet or use it as cupboard space is based on how you want to utilize it. The color white of the kitchen cabinets will enhance the space and make it appear larger.
Additional: Some people also opt for a height-size open-shelf cabinetry design that lets themstore the spices and other cooking ingredients in glass jars. It not only makes it easier to reach for them but the white background of the cabinets and the colorful ingredients provides a perfect show for the beholder and is no less than a visual treat.
The one thing that we need to keep in mind is that the most important thing in a kitchen space is efficiency. Be it for the stove, sink or refrigerator storage, it is essential that they are just what they should be in order for effective use and not just for show. Many cabinet manufacturers offer affordable kitchen cabinets that allow you to make the most of these storage spaces without costing you much. All you have to do is opt for the ones that will help you make your kitchen more efficient without adding to the clutter or ruining the presentation.
