We provide you the lowdown on enlarging your upper
Upper cabinets don't come in 1 width or height, and they don't come in just one depth. Usually, upper cupboards are much shallower than reduced cabinets, sometimes as much as half of the thickness. That's some serious space you are missing out on in the event that you're trying to squeeze every inch of storage from your own kitchen. Here you might want to consider going with your cupboards.
Which are counter-depth upper cabinets?
In a typical kitchen, we think of upper and lower cabinets as being distinctly different, especially when it comes to the depth.
Lower cabinets and also a wall are usually about 24 inches deep, with a 25-inch deep counter top of them. Upper wall cabinets are more shallow to not encroach upon the workspace much.
But with most cabinet lines it's possible to use"counter-depth" or"full-depth" upper cabinets, which would be the exact same thickness as standard lowers.
At the same kitchen this angle, previous photo shows the espresso cabinets are one depth.
Using deep uppers can have a number of purposes, the most basic being to provide additional storage space.
At a streamlined kitchen, every inch of storage aids, and you are given approximately 10 inches more storage by counter thickness cabinets. That may go a long way.
In the cases so far you the deep uppers are well over the counter clockwise, so the view isn't blocked when cooking, and also the standard-depth lowers can hold smaller objects for quick access.
While the distances we've looked at thus far have been pretty modern, this notion can work well in conventional or transitional spaces also, as in this example i designed for a client in toronto.
It's critical, however, to consider that deeper upper cabinets will automatically appear a bit longer"heavy" and can shrink the overall look of the room, which means you'll want to discover a few ways to lighten the general look.
Under cabinet lights
Intelligent under cabinet lights can make the open area above the counter feel bigger. In addition they create a focal point a little lower down to the wall, which means that your eyes are attracted into the most open place instead of around the bulkier cabinets.
Many of these examples utilize a two-tone cabinet look, which can be an enjoyable way to add personality to a space. It's a safe bet to use the same end for the heavy uppers along with the lower cabinets, and save a contrasting material for regular depth uppers, for a look that is playful but nevertheless logical and put-together.
