Kitchens Design & Cabinets – Kitchen Showroom Glen Iris

Renovating your kitchen can be a great opportunity to consider changes and not just to the general layout of your kitchen design in terms of floor space and placement of cabinets, appliances, island units and so on. It can also allow you to take full advantage of the full height of your kitchen.

Cabinets that are full height, and essentially reach, or almost reach, the ceiling can maximise the available space and provide additional storage. This may be particularly applicable in a more restricted kitchen space, or it may allow you to sacrifice an extra cabinet for example to make way for a large wine rack or some other nice-to-have but non-essential item. It is important to consider the practicalities if storage is a key consideration. If the extra storage at the top of your cabinet is inaccessible, then it will be unused and of no benefit – unless you want to run the risk of toppling off a kitchen stool or chair anytime you need to retrieve anything from the higher reaches. However, a well-planned and executed cabinet construction should provide a suitable storage option, regardless of height.

In a minimalist, contemporary kitchen, cabinets that are ceiling height are in keeping with the sleek lines required, and provide a visual continuity that is aesthetically pleasant.

If the extra space is not required, and the look of a kitchen requires less sleek lines and minimal visual interruptions, space above the cabinets can be used to enhance kitchens in Glen Iris and provide a softer look. Recessed lighting within the space, or over the space, can provide wonderful ambient lighting, providing a welcome glow to the space. Indeed, it can also be made a feature in a contemporary space, allowing for the ambient lighting of different colours, in keeping with the overall tone and mood.

Given that this is a major investment, and something that you will have to live with and work with, it’s important to make well-informed decisions that reflects your needs and taste. Regardless of the extent of your kitchen renovation or budget, it is always worth investigating all of your options, and engaging professionals with years of experience and knowledge to help you through the process.

For this, it’s important to find some kitchen designers in Glen Iris or your locale to give you their expert advice on such matters.
