Select Your Base Kitchen Cabinets _ First select your base cabinets. The choice will depend on the service you are using, but one high_quality furniture company that hand_makes custom furniture offers a variety of base units in widths from 9 to 60 inches wide, all by 24 inches deep and 34Ǒ inches high. Units offered include normal storage cabinets, 9 and 12 inch wide pull_out spice racks, waste units, drawer units, corner Lazy Susan, sink base and base for a dishwasher. There is also a 24 inch wide and 84 inch high pantry unit with seven shelves. You can mix and match all or any of these to fit the space available to you to the nearest nine inches. You can then select your upper cabinets.
The next step is to layout your kitchen cabinets. Standard cabinets come in widths with 3" increments, so you can use them in almost any kitchen layout. Here is another area where an experienced kitchen designer can save you lots of time and frustration. Once the basic kitchen layout is complete, the designer can assist you in including the details that really make a kitchen a showpiece. How about a plate rail or open end shelves for added appeal? Is a wine rack appropriate in your kitchen design? It is the little details, which you may not have even thought about, that make any kitchen really special.
