Is your kitchen lacking functionality? Turn it into something more than just a cooking spot! Various mechanisms for kitchen cabinets will help make it comfortable and convenient. Doors and pull-out drawers will be safer and easier to use, as well as allow for rational use of furniture.
Kitchen systems help make the use of cabinets, drawers and other furniture much more convenient. They are divided into several types, which differ in their principle of action:
Closer. Essentially, it is a spring mechanism in an oil or gas capsule. It helps to gently and quietly close cabinets. In appearance, this is an ordinary door hinge or a special device that is attached to the top of the cabinet.
Lifting mechanism. Provides both soft and quiet opening of horizontally oriented doors and facades, and reliably holds them in the required position.
In this article, we have listed some interesting Kitchen island design ideas that will go a long way towards making the most of your kitchen storage space.
These can be hidden niches, kitchen accessories, cabinets and shelves for things that usually do not have a separate place.
For example, jars of condiments will find their convenient and easily accessible place in a small and narrow cabinet hidden behind a column of a kitchen island. On the other side of the column, there may be a deeper cabinet or drawers.
The next idea for a variety of small jars found in every kitchen is a vertical drawer next to the stove. It doesn’t take up much space, and it’s also very convenient for the cook when ordered and signed condiments are at hand.
Small vertical niches are great for storing trays, cutting boards, baking tins and the like. If necessary, the contents of the niche can be hidden behind a door.
And one more very useful idea. When designing kitchen furniture, you can provide a special small niche for paper kitchen towels on one side of the sink. This way you will always have kitchen paper on hand for various needs, and it will not take up space on the work surface.
Wonderful kitchen optimization idea
One way to use a corner in the kitchen is to use a pantry. In the presented photo you can see the wonderful idea of a corner pantry, into which the hostess can enter and take advantage of the abundance of cabinets and shelves, most often reaching the ceiling.
The frosted glass on the doors of this pantry hides what is stored inside. Any housewife would be glad to have a sufficiently large and well-organized pantry, or a place where they keep various types of products, preparations, seasonings, canned food, cans, teas, electrical appliances, kitchen utensils and the like.
In other words, there are many small things that need to be kept "under control" to keep the kitchen in order.
Unfortunately, not every kitchen has a pantry that you can enter. Therefore, most often you have to be content with a large and tall European style kitchen cabinet that performs this function. In this case, one of the best ideas is to make such a cabinet in the corner, thus making the most of the corner space and gaining significant space for storing food and various small things.
