Kitchen cabinets can be very costly, especially custom made cabinets, they can add up to thousands of dollars. Designers estimate construction of the kitchen will amount to 10% of your homes total cost.
Pre-designed cabinets can be bought for less than a custom made cabinet and are being built using quality building materials. Pre-designed cabinets are built to accommodate any size kitchen area.
Today cabinets come in the natural woods, and should, as nearly as possible, match the woodwork, wall, countertops and floors of the kitchen.
Most cabinets have a finish which renders them impervious to grease, and all are fitted with molding boards, shelves, cupboards, and drawers of various sizes.
Kitchen Cabinets – Cupboards
- First and foremost, the kitchen cabinet accommodates the kitchen dishes, plates, platters, and saucers, standing on edge of course, with cups hanging from small hooks, and pitchers, bowls, etc., variously arranged.
- Then come the jars of spice, sugar, salt, tea, and coffee and all groceries, in fact, which are in most frequent use.
- Where the decorative design in both jars and dishes is carried out in the blue and white, with a utensil or two of the same coloring, the effect is truly charming, though this is, of course, a matter of individual taste.
- The kitchen cupboards are handy hiding places for the less ornamental bottles, brushes, etc., while the base, which is really nothing more nor less than a very complete kitchen table, usually has a shelf for kettles, stone jars, etc.
