Kitchen cabinet considerations for kitchen extensions

Designing the cabinet layout for any kitchen requires planning for functionality, aesthetics, and optimal use of space. For a kitchen extension, where the shape of the space may be changing, or there may be an increase in space, there are even more factors to take into account. So what are the important kitchen cabinet considerations for kitchen extensions? And how can the right results be achieved.

What are the important kitchen cabinet considerations for kitchen extensions?

When it comes to your kitchen extension, particularly your kitchen cabinets, there are a number of different considerations to bear in mind. These considerations include:

  • The flow of the kitchen
  • Storage solutions and options
  • Aesthetic design

The flow of the kitchen

Firstly, it’s important to consider the flow of traffic through the kitchen. It’s important that the layout of the cabinets facilitate a smooth and logical movement between different zones, such as cooking, prep, and cleaning areas. This involves placing cabinets in a way that reduces obstruction and promotes an efficient workflow for a practical and functional kitchen space.

Storage solutions

Another important consideration for the cabinets in your kitchen extension is the integration of storage solutions. In a kitchen extension, where additional space may be available, maximising storage capacity can be an important factor. This involves strategically placing cabinets to capitalise on vertical and horizontal space, incorporating features like pull-out shelves, deep drawers, and pantry units for optimal organisation.

Aesthetic design

The kitchen’s aesthetic appeal is another factor to consider. Cabinet finishes, styles, and hardware need to complement the overall design scheme of the extended space. The layout should also consider the natural light sources and artificial lighting fixtures, ensuring that the cabinets are well-lit and that shadows are minimised, enhancing both functionality and visual appeal.
