When planning to upgrade or remodel any kitchen, you want to pay attention to the "work triangle" and make the most of
your space. We can help you figure out the best cabinet layout for a functional kitchen.
Our Seasons kitchen cabinet collections are an easy and affordable way to update the look of your property. They can be
shipped ready to assemble for easy storage, or preassembled** for quick installation.
Choose the best cabinet layout for your space. Consider some of these more common kitchen design options and issues.
Lazy Susan/Easy Reach
A lazy Susan or easy reach cabinet provides an efficient use of kitchen corner space. This option typically comes out
of the corner 36" in both directions, and is great for storing oversized pots and bowls.
Blind Base Cabinet
If you don't have room for a lazy Susan cabinet, a blind base cabinet is a great alternative. This type of cabinet allows
you to place an adjacent appliance or sink base cabinet only 27" from the corner, using a filler. The blind base placement
is adjustable, and can be pulled in or out of corners as needed. If the adjacent appliance is a dishwasher or range,
it will hide the gap, and comes with a 3" filler.
If your space is very limited in both directions, your only option may be a void or dead corner. Though this is least
efficient, it is sometimes necessary. In this situation, two fillers are screwed together to create an L shape. This
creates a minimum of 3" of space in either direction to allow drawers and doors to open without hitting the knobs of
Wall Cabinet Height
Typically, kitchen ceilings are 96" high. Using 30" cabinets allows for simple installation. Staggering heights over
the range or sink adds depth to the room, and crown molding is a perfect finishing touch.
Planning Guidelines for Functional Kitchens
Keep 24" minimum countertop space on one side of the sink and 18" on the other
Leave 15" minimum landing space next to the refrigerator
Include 15" landing space next to or above the oven
If using a microhood, the bottom of the hood should be no more than 54" from the floor
