When it comes to choosing new units for your kitchen, there might be a challenge. There are many types and styles of kitchen units and you need to choose what can enhance the beauty and functionality of your kitchen. So what are the most useful types of kitchen units? How could you know if you’re sacrificing quality? How much maintenance is required for your new kitchen units?
Even though all types of kitchen units are incredibly attractive, you can’t choose too many different types for one small kitchen. This can create an incoherent and imbalanced feel. Any kitchen designer would advise you to go for a coherent layout broken by some infrequent variations. You can then tie the whole look together by a coordinated color scheme.
In fact, the color scheme of your kitchen has a great role in determining the overall look of your kitchen. A darkish color scheme can warm up a large kitchen while lighter colors can create the illusion of bigger space. Keep in mind though that lighter colored kitchen units require more maintenance and more frequent cleaning, because dirt will show up pretty clearly on such surfaces.
Also if you wish for something that requires low maintenance, stay away from textured finishes. Cleaning textured finishes can be a nightmare for some people. The most important thing is to choose good quality kitchen units. Choose kitchen units that are made from no less than 18mm thick chipboard. This way, you’re guaranteed to have durable kitchen units that can withstand the test of time.
There are a lot of types when it comes to kitchen units including single and double units, bi-folding units, open units, full height pull-out units, top box units, corner units, drawer units, and sink units. Each type has different pros and cons and in order to choose the right types, you need to do some planning first.
Make sure that you’re utilizing every inch of space. If you have a small kitchen, you can go for a top box unit to utilize the space above the cooker hood. You can also opt for a full-height pull-out unit which can add a futuristic appeal that could alter the look of your kitchen. Any way at the end of the day, make sure that you’re choosing the most beautiful kitchen units without sacrificing neither quality nor practicality.
