When planning a kitchen layout, it is always recommended to organize by the work zones. There are five major zones in a kitchen (consumables, non-consumables, cleaning, preparation, cooking). In order to provide effective storage, we recommend different storage solutions for each zone.
- Consumables zone: The area used to store most of your food. This may actually be split into two zones: one for your refrigerator (fresh food) and one for your pantry or food cabinets (dry goods, oils, etc.).
- Non-consumables zone: The area used to store everyday dishes, including plates, bowls, glasses, and silverware.
- Cleaning zone: The area that contains the sink and dishwasher (if you have one).
- Preparation zone: The area where most of your kitchen prep happens. This may be a stretch of countertop, or a kitchen island.
- Cooking zone: The area that contains the stovetop, oven, or range, and possibly the microwave.
What are blind corner cabinets?
Corner cabinets exist when two base cabinets are put together and you lose the inner corner space.
Corner cabinets are considered the loneliest, darkest and remote space in a kitchen. With their hard to reach angles,it can become frustrating for home users. In fact, you may notice that corner cabinets usually are storage for unappreciated, underused and cast away items.
- Deep: Regular base cabinets tend to be 24″ deep. However corner cabinets are usually 34″ deep.
- Dark: Lighting is usually non existent in the back of the cabinets.
- Inaccessible: Very hard to reach and fully access the back of the cabinet.
