Today’s Custom Cabinetry Beauty is not just Skin Deep…

The beautiful trends in custom cabinet design in 2024 are over the top, yet they are hosting more stuff inside of them than ever before. Not only does everyone want them to look beautiful, elegant and even sexy…they want them working harder than ever for us every day. 

Having said this, I want to assure you that custom elegance is here to stay, with almost unlimited choices. In this article, I would like to explore what’s behind all this beauty. It’s important to consider how you want your cabinets to support your lifestyle based on the features and functionality found on the inside. 

Let’s start with the basics to make sure your new custom cabinets are designed and built exactly the way you want and will have all the wonderful features you desire. 

The best way to approach this is to make a list of all your biggest complaints about your current kitchen or bath cabinets. It could be something similar to this list. – 

  • My cabinets are too small 

or not tall or wide enough 

  • The hardware is dated
  • Better inside utility other than a few dividers and a Lazy Susan. 
  • No towel storage
  • Pantry too small or awkward to reach in. 
  • I am finished with trying to get heavy small appliances out and heave them onto a counter. 
  • There are no outlets built inside the cabinets. 
  • I cannot reach the upper cabinets without using a step stool. 

Then make a list of the features that you would love to have in your cabinets. When planning cabinet layouts and functions, take inventory of everything you’ll want to store.

  • Lighting inside my cabinets and even in some of the drawers
  • Spices, herbs and oils
  • Glassware, China, serve-ware, cutting boards and everyday utensils
  • Cooking utensils like spatulas, large spoons and knives
  • Pots, pans and other specialty cookware
  • Tabletop items including vases, linens, candles, candleholders and seasonal items
  • Small appliances like mixers, blenders, juicers, bread makers and Instant Pots.
  • Any food or drinks that will be stored in cabinets
  • Paper towels and items like waxed paper, aluminum foil and baggies
  • Built in Pet bowls and food that slide in and out
  • Built in step stool 
  • Baking supplies, flat pans and other cooking tools
  • Pyrex, glass and plastic food storage containers such as Tupperware
  • Wine, barware such as bottle openers, stirrers and cocktail napkins
  • Anything else you would like to keep convenient

The most exciting part about installing custom cabinetry is the fact that they are custom. For 2024 look for them to continue with very unique and more innovative ideas than ever before.

Imagine being able to finally have a drawer that is normally messy manage all your larger utensils. By placing them upright in easy to reach stainless steel holders.

Pull-outs next to the stove can house all of your herbs, spices, vinegars, oils and other ingredients within easy reach. Imagine having a hidden built in slide out step stool for reaching those higher cabinets.
