Kitchen cabinets differ primarily in their shape. Their function is theoretically variable, but over time, certain uses have been established for each type of kitchen cabinet:
Base units: Base every kitchen where the work surface is mounted.
Tallcabinets: Traditionally used as a pantry, tall cabinets, especially so-called pharmacy cabinets, are becoming increasingly popular because of their large storage space.
Wall cupboards: In this, glasses, cups and other lighter dishes are traditionally stored. Supplies that need to be stored dry, such as spices, flour, sugar or muesli, are often housed here.
Corner cupboards: The classic is the corner base cupboard with a revolving door, and is mostly used to store pots and pans.
Built-in cupboards: These kitchen cupboards offer space for stoves, dishwashers and the like and make the electronic devices look almost "disappear".
