The Benefits of Custom Designed Kitchens and Cabinetry Essentials 

When designing custom kitchen cabinets, or doing a kitchen renovation, one of the primary goals is to gain more space for storage. You want your new kitchen to be organised and spacious.

We design and build kitchen cabinets to precisely suit your home. When you buy modular or flatpack you cannot be sure that everything will fit exactly, and operate the way it’s intended to. Very few homes, old or new, are perfectly level and square. A custom made kitchen will be manufactured to overcome these common issues.

If you’ve decided to renovate your kitchen, you owe it to yourself to carefully consider storage ideas. In the kitchen, aesthetics and functionality are the two most important things to keep in mind. The amount of storage and its location within the kitchen will impact both.

If you have inadequate storage, your kitchen is likely to look cluttered with items that may otherwise be stored out of sight needlessly taking up valuable counter space.

The benefits of custom designed kitchens is a showpiece that enhances the value, function and comfort of your home.

A kitchen renovation will dramatically improve the style and overall value of your home.

When you are looking to remodel your kitchen, you may want to consider the benefits of custom designed kitchens.

By creating custom made cabinets for your new kitchen design, you will be able to improve the functionality of your new kitchen space with a luxurious look and feel.

Handle-less Kitchen Cabinets

Here are some Benefits of Custom Designed Kitchens and some cabinet storage ideas on how to make using your kitchen more enjoyable.

Butler’s Pantry

If you have the space, a butler’s pantry is a luxurious feature, providing a segregated area for storage of foodstuffs and appliances.

Walk-In Pantry

Similar to the butler’s pantry, this area should be capable of storing all the tinned and packaged foods you require in your kitchen.

Slide-Out Pantry

For those kitchens where a walk-in pantry isn’t feasible, a slide-out pantry may be the next best option. Modern Blum storage solutions help convert even narrow areas into very usable pantries.

When not in use, these slide-out pantries simply slide back into their original position. They’re great at seamlessly blending into the surrounding cabinetry in your kitchen.

The benefits of custom designed kitchen cabinetry is to have enough storage space and be easily accessible. When there’s a lack of space, practical solutions help ensure available space is used to its fullest potential.

Gain additional space by using Blum pull-outs with closed side panels or deeper drawers. Blum cabinet solutions for corners or the sink area also create additional usable space.

Base Cabinets

Drawers are ideal for storing provisions with spacious full extension giving you clear visibility and easy access.

Space Corner Cabinets

The Space Corner Cabinet puts corner space to optimal use, creating ample storage space for provisions. The spacious drawers give you easy access to packs of pasta, flour and tins. What’s more, you don’t have to bend down to get to things.

Pot Drawers

A relatively recent innovation, pot drawers are over-sized drawers that are deeper than normal drawers. They’re designed specifically to accommodate all of your pots and pans. For convenience, remember to locate pot drawers within easy reach of your cooktop and oven.

Under-bench Rubbish Bins

Apart from being unhygienic, there’s nothing more unsightly than rubbish bins in a kitchen. Modern design allows bins to slide out of sight, so that when the bins aren’t required they simply slide shut and blend in with you kitchen cabinets.

Utensil Storage

Suitable Blum Utensil containers will save wasting drawer space. And the right choice of Utensil containers can complement the décor of your kitchen, as they’re available in a myriad styles.

A practical interior with well-thought-out solutions ensures workflows are smooth and ergonomic. Easy access is assured through full extension Blum runners and the inclusion of Blum’s ORGA-LINE inner dividing system.

Overhead Cabinets

Powered by Blum SERVO-DRIVE, the overhead cabinet door lifts effortlessly. On the lower shelf, there are plates, bowls and mugs used daily;and occasionally used items on the shelf above.

Blum door lifts, drawer and hinge systems withstand the intensive daily use for the lifetime of the kitchen cabinetry.

Blum fittings work within the kitchen cabinetry creating the perfect balance between exterior form and interior function ensuring the functionality and beauty of the kitchen cabinet designs becomes a reality.

Top Trends In Kitchen Cabinetry Design

Designer Kitchens Brisbane

Kitchen cabinetry is not just for storage. It is an essential element to your kitchen’s style when doing a kitchen renovation.

While simple clean cabinetry will keep getting popular, some homeowners will prefer unique customised styles that will make a clear statement. Here are the top trends for kitchen cabinet design.

Open Shelving

Open shelves look beautiful in the magazines, but not necessarily a “must-have” for most homeowners. Lets face it, you have to have a matching set of dinnerware or specialty pieces you want on display.  But with good organisation and the right kind of shelves, you can create a really unique cutting edge style for your kitchen.

Multiple Colours in the Kitchen

For cabinetry, homeowners are favouring customised colours that perfectly fit their kitchen spaces. Neutral colours are currently big favourites with tones like grey, but don’t count out the darker colour.

You might have the upper cabinets finished in white while the base cabinetry is a natural wood look.  An interesting kitchen cabinet design is to make the island a different colour than the perimeter cabinets. Since the island is more like a piece of furniture, it’s an easy breakaway piece that you can feel comfortable being bold.

Under Cabinet Lighting

LED lighting has had a particularly good run as homeowners change over from traditional incandescent bulbs. It provides good lighting for activities, comes in a variety of colours and the bulbs last for a really long time. 

This has made it a popular option for under-cabinet lighting. Under cabinet LED lights come in different forms including pucks, strips, and bars. When fixed under the wall cabinetry, they help add light to the working area as well as improve the overall ambiance.

Kitchen Sinks and Tapware

Focused on functionality, today’s kitchens are being designed with large single bowl sinks or with multiple sinks.

Large single bowl sinks are popular mostly for their large deep sizes, that allows for more comfortable use, and style. These sinks are perfect for larger items such as cookie sheets, stockpots, and skillet handles.  

We are also seeing a rise of unique and fun kitchen tap designs. Today, kitchen tapware come in all shapes, curves, and twists.

Kitchen Design Layouts

Kitchen Designs - Storage Solutions

Kitchen Design Layouts

With kitchen design layouts, the size and shape of the room will often dictate the kitchen layout. In larger rooms there are more options to consider.

Typical kitchen design layouts are Galley Kitchen, L-shaped Kitchen , or U-shaped Kitchen, and may include islands, breakfast bars, and dining areas.

Most kitchen remodelling designs are a variation on one of these examples. Typical kitchen layouts are shown with “work triangles” indicating the possible positioning of appliances.

L-Shaped Kitchen Layout

An L-shaped Kitchen layout has cabinets along all or part of two adjoining walls. In a larger kitchen this may allow room for a dining area in the kitchen. This kitchen layout provides ample storage space and floor space and is therefore ideal for a busy family life.

Kitchen Designs: U-Shaped Kitchen Layout

In an U-shaped kitchen layout, the cabinets cover three walls, and in a larger room one length of the U may be used as a breakfast bar. In small kitchens, this layout provides maximum storage and appliance capacity, but standing room is limited. It is best to keep the refrigerator close to the door.

Kitchen Designs: Galley Kitchen Layout

A galley kitchen layout uses straight runs of cabinets on opposing walls in a narrow kitchen. As in the U-shaped kitchen layout above, floor space may be limited, but wall space is used to its maximum potential.
