Kitchen Cabinet Interiors Have Never Been More Useable, User-Friendly and Attractive
I have a couple of rules, or perhaps, more correctly, wishes when it comes to kitchen cabinet storage: (1) take advantage of every square inch; and (2) make everything accessible and visible. At this year’s Kitchen and Bath Show in Las Vegas, Hafele, one of the world’s largest and most innovative cabinet hardware and accessories manufacturers, unveiled some very impressive possibilities.
Pantries That Pop
Nowhere are my two storage mantras more important than in the pantry. Food items come and go on a daily basis so it’s really important to be able to see everything at a glance, without having to move items in front to reveal what’s concealed behind. Hafele’s pantry storage system unfolds like a deconstructed origami creation, displaying the contents inside and putting it all within easy reach.
More Than Just Shelves
The kitchen base cabinet hardware on display, pulled out, swung out and folded out to make even the deepest recesses of those under-countertop spaces totally accessible.
Not Your Parent’s Cabinet Doors
State-of-the-art cabinet hardware now allows doors to slip out of sight and disappear, or, glide smoothly past one another without intruding into the room.
Let There Be Light
Thin-profile, low voltage LED lighting is not only tucked neatly out of sight under wall cabinets, but it’s being used to light cabinet interiors – improving visibility and giving an attractive glow to what used to be gloomy recesses.
