When thinking about your kitchens cabinets, it’s important to determine what each cabinet will be used for, since each cabinet essentially has a different function. You want to make sure you have accounted for every inch of space, especially if you are deciding to get custom cabinets. Think about what you like to do in your kitchen space. Do you love wine? Do you like to entertain? Do you collect salt and pepper shakers? Whatever you like to do, incorporate it into the design of your cabinets. Be practical but make sure you have storage where you need it most. Think about where appliances will be placed and how close you want certain utensils to said appliances.

Cabinet or Drawer
Cabinets and drawers function very similarly, so it is imperative to decide early on where you will have drawers in place of cabinets. A deep drawer can go a long way with saving space and creating great organization without hassle. If you have used all your cabinet space allotted, it can be good to place a drawer instead. Implementing shallow and deep drawers will give your kitchen a good dynamic and create plenty of room to store your belongings.
If you are deciding to make your kitchen feel more open and have a different floor plan, many people knock out the top level of cabinets to do this. If you are planning on doing something similar, it is important to compensate with appropriate storage in another way. One way to do this is to create an entire cabinet wall with height and depth. This gives your home and very modern and sleek look. This look can go a long way because it’s minimalist but has all the storage you need, and is well organized since it’s all in a localized space.
