Have you seen all the different ways cabinets can be used throughout the home? Kitchen cabinets usually get all the attention, and other wonderful spaces in the home can get overlooked. Some places might be obvious (read: the bathroom), and others can be delightfully unexpected. But it’s just as easy to save more on high quality cabinets for other rooms, too.
Take a tour through all of these ‘non-kitchen’ rooms and consider if any of yours could benefit from a little cabinet love:
Bathrooms really are like mini-kitchens, with cabinets, countertops, sinks, and faucets — all on a smaller scale. They’re usually the first ‘non-kitchen’ use for cabinets that most people come across when cabinet shopping, which is why it deserves the first mention. As one of the most used rooms in the house, they’re an easy place to justify a remodel or upgrade. All the daily wear and tear that bathroom cabinets face make it necessary to get high-quality, durable cabinets.
Is your laundry room more of a clutter closet? Washing and drying anything in this room requires quite a few components, like detergent, softener, bleach, stain remover, dryer sheets, laundry bags, and more. All of these necessary cleaning items tend to stack up and clutter the space, making a not-so-fun chore even less enjoyable. Typically the solution to the amount of stuff in there is basic open wire shelving.
When homeowners think of offices, they imagine bookshelves and a desk (naturally), but those bookshelves can only go so far when it comes to storage. Cabinets on the other hand, could add floor-to-ceiling storage while not detracting from the overall look of the room. In this case, cabinets most likely need to blend in rather than stand out so that they aren’t distractions.
Level up your in-home drybar from ‘college frat house’ to ‘elegant soiree’ with a set of wall and base cabinets. Rather than buying a pre-made or fabricated bar, choose a set of cabinets to create a fixture that feels mature and like it belongs in the room. Plus, for those who entertain infrequently, cabinets can create a space that doesn’t scream “BAR”. That way, when you aren’t entertaining, your bar doesn’t always have to feel like a bar.
Garages suffer the same “too much stuff” problem that a lot of other rooms have, and cabinets are a great solution for making the most out of the mess. The right cabinets can offer durability and maximum storability. The standard trendy kitchen cabinets may not feel right, but other styles add a touch of class to a rough-and-tough place. And you never know, a spice rack could find a new life organizing tools.
For many customers, their craft rooms must offer a large working space and have a high degree of organization. Scrapbooking, quilting, leatherwork, jewelry making — no matter what your craft of choice is, it usually involves a need to spread out. The right cabinets and countertop can give you all the space you need to let your creative side run wild and bring your visions to life.
