If your home seems cramped, with a lot of clutter that needs a home, it can be hard to create more space. However, with some ingenuity, you can redesign certain elements to work for your space and your storage needs. With custom cabinetry, you can transform spaces in your kitchen, bathroom and even garage to bring you more storage.
There are many areas of your home that could benefit from uniquely designed elements. When you are thinking of which spaces to utilize, keep in mind a few things.
Do not value cost over quality. Some companies will tell you that they can save you thousands on material costs, but do your homework. If they are going to create shelving or cabinetry out of laminate or particle board rather than solid wood and quality hardware, you won’t have the strength and support you need for your belongings. This will simply cost you more money in the end.
Hardware is just as important as construction material. Use hardware like a servo drive to assist with easy opening and closing needs for your cabinets. Full extension drawer glides should also be installed with your custom cabinetry choice. This allows you to utilize all of the space in the drawer and also prevents the drawer from slamming.
Work with the space you have. If might simply take creative placement to maximize your space. In bathrooms, go vertical with a stylish, towered medicine cabinet. Kitchen corners can get pull-out systems, and stuffed drawers can be exchanged for larger, deep drawers. Office spaces could benefit from roll-outs or large file drawers. A laundry room could benefit from a custom cabinetry design the includes a fold-down ironing board or storage center.
Functionality is critical to making the most use of your space. By choosing your style, placement, material and design, you can get your cabinets to work for you instead of working around them.
