Features for Cabinets
Cabinet manufacturers are getting more and more creative about providing homeowners with special features to make kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas more functional and appealing.
Here are a few of the more common options available from today’s cabinet companies. Every cabinet line has its own selection of features, so you will want to check to find out what will be available with the cabinets you choose.
Other Cabinet Characteristics & Features
There is virtually no limit to the number of features available for your custom cabinetry. Make the best of corner cabinet limitations with lazy Susans and pull-and-turn shelving. We also offer slides so your drawers can pull out beyond the face of your cabinet, giving you the ability to lift large items out vertically. Spice racks can be built directly into drawers, and custom panels can be made for your appliances to match your cabinet doors.
Explore our other feature options below:
- Pull out drawers & shelves: For lower cabinets and drawers with an extra-height front edge.
- Appliance garages: covered spaces to keep small appliances out of sight when not in use
- Overlays: This type of decorative element can be attached to locations such as the stove hood to connect it with the cabinetry or add another decorative element.
- Turned posts: Looking like table legs, they may be used along one side of an island to support the countertop when it extends out beyond the cabinetry. This provides space for an eating area. Occasionally these posts are cut in half and set along one side of an island as faux supports.
- Corbels: These decorative braces look as if they are holding up a shelf or countertop and are generally found at the corners of islands. Sometimes they actually do provide a support role.
- Mirror molding: Molding that is used on bathroom cabinetry can often be used to frame vanity mirrors for a coordinated and finished look.
- Wainscoting: These panels may be installed along the walls of the kitchen or surrounding rooms, connecting those spaces with the kitchen cabinetry. This type of molding may run at chair-rail height or higher depending upon the style of the home.
- Light rail: This type of molding is used under top cabinets to hide task-lighting or to provide a more overall finished look.
- Pilasters: These columns project out slightly from a wall or cabinet to add an elegant touch.
- Decorative feet: Feet may be inserted to create a look of furniture or add dimension in one area, particularly if one cabinet extends beyond the general cabinet line. Islands or china hutches may also include decorative feet or legs. Design options for these vary with the style of cabinetry chosen.
