Kitchen storage problems are now a thing of the past with flexible and functional ideas flooding the market. All you have to do is choose the one that suits you best from the large range of kitchen storage solutions. Whether you are the proud owner of a hall the size of a mega-kitchen or a humble little room that you like to call a kitchen, there is a place for one and all when it comes to the availability of functional storage solutions.
Despite the standard base and wall kitchen cabinets that hide most of the kitchen stuff, there is always that extra stuff that needs good storage space. A freestanding kitchen cabinet is the ideal way to fix your need for extra storage and at the same time not worry about space restrictions. Free standing kitchen cabinets come in a variety of size, shape and colors. Even if you have a circular space where you need a storage cabinet to fit in, it is readily available. Along with this they come in a variety of materials such as wood, stainless steel etc.
Free standing kitchen cabinets are very useful
Freestanding kitchen cabinets are versatile in their use and can be cleaned easily. If you choose such cabinets with wheels, cleaning becomes much easier since the cabinet can be moved out of the kitchen. If you have a small kitchen and you have one or two independent kitchen cabinets, you can always arrange them to suit your space and the appearance of your kitchen. You can also arrange such cabinets in the lobby that connects your kitchen to the living room. In this way not only the kitchen looks spacious but also creates an extension space for it. Large and medium-sized kitchens have the freedom to keep such cabinets in the kitchen itself. Freestanding vertical cabinets are great for small kitchens as they provide storage without taking up a lot of floor space.
What should you look for?
Freestanding kitchen cabinets are readily available at local kitchen hardware stores, online (sponsored link) and specialist kitchen furniture stores. While choosing cabinets for yourself, you should focus on the functionality, the number of spaces provided, the types of spaces provided and the ease of its installation in your kitchen. Free standing kitchen cabinets are available with various shelves, drawers, wine racks, roll out trays and a glass door display shelf for your expensive china. With a wide variety of choice, it is easy to find a cabinet that suits your need and yet fits into your budget. Most of them are easy to install or assemble.
Interestingly, if the independent kitchen cabinet has a tiled top, it can be used as a dining island. All you need are some high chairs and you are ready to eat right in or near your kitchen. In case you have a large kitchen, these cabinets can add a stylish look to your kitchen as you can get extra space to arrange flowers or just some fancy display pieces. This of course may not be possible in a small kitchen where the cabinet is completely utilized for storage, but creativity can be applied to small and large spaces alike.
Free standing kitchen cabinet styles
Freestanding kitchen cabinets come in various styles to suit your kitchen style — such as country, contemporary, French, Italian etc. You can afford to experiment with the look of your kitchen if you have such free base cabinets and wire shelf units, since they can easily be replaced unlike fixed cabinets, where the task of replacing the -fixed cabinets are not only tedious but also expensive.
This is a great option if you are planning a new kitchen or giving your kitchen a completely new look as you can plan more functionality in your kitchen with upright kitchen cabinets. And your next change in the future will also be easier since all you need is to replace them instead of having to go through a tedious process of uninstalling. The main aspect is to have good storage and at the same time keep the kitchen a spacious and pleasant place to work. So choose the freestanding cabinets carefully to avoid digging too much of them. In addition to the base cabinets (in case you keep the base cabinets as standing as well or if you have fixed base cabinets) just one or two more such cabinets should solve all your storage needs.
