Straight Corner Wall Kitchen Units
When considering your kitchen design, the main thing you want is to not have any wasted space. You also cant have too many units crammed into one space as this is going to cause walkway issues, as well as obstructing units that might block each other when they are open. You might think this process of designing might leave gaps in-between cabinets but there are smaller cabinets that can be installed that ensure you get the maximum use of the space.
Full height units are great if you really want to add a touch of futuristic influence in your design. These units run from the ceiling to the floor give or take a few centimetres for ground clearance and pull out towards you, giving you a side access style of unit that can also be used as a rack for spices, wine and anything else you can put in there. This really does alter the appearance of your kitchen, but some special work may be required to make your space compatible with the styling and overall design of your kitchen, so please speak to a kitchen designer for further advice.
Open and Microwave Wall Kitchen Units
Bi-folding wall units are something you might want to consider if you want something a bit different as these work like garage doors where the door lifts up to reveal the compartment inside. There are also horizontal folding doors, which can give your kitchen great visuals as these can be made of mostly glass.
End of kitchen units are used for just that, the end of an island or aisle of units if you dont want an abrupt end to your units. These can be tailored to your liking as you can have a mix of designs, either having a door or even a pull out unit for storage. You could also opt for curved shelving on the end of the units but a corner unit is most recommended for the aesthetic values it brings to your kitchen. This again can also act a filler unit as you may not be able to fit another normal sized single or double unit so you can opt for a smaller corner unit which is going to hit two tick boxes in one, making extra storage space where there wouldnt be, and giving your kitchen a more refined look.
