Kitchen Design & Kitchen Cabinets : Some of Our Works

Kitchen Layout Mistakes You Don't Want to Make!

  • The areas of greatest activity such as the sink, stove and refrigerator require careful planning.

    There should be clear easy access to all 3 items. Regardless of your kitchens, size or shape these 3 areas should be close together, however be positioned so people are not tripping over one another.

  • One of the biggest complaints is the lack of bench space.

    Consider all the kitchen activities that require a benchtop as well as appliances that are left out permanently. You want to allow for as much open bench space as possible. If space allows a good solution for this is to add an island or breakfast bar.

  • Almost every kitchen has wasted space, however with adequate planning this can be minimised.

    Consider installing extra tall cabinets for extra space. Install cabinets over the refrigerator and install shelves across the backs of lower kitchen cabinets.

  • Kitchen islands are great for additional storage, preparation and serving space.

    But unless you have the space to allow for people to be able to move around it easily it may not be a good idea, and in fact waste space. Another important thing to think about is how you will incorporate power to your island.

  • Not using a professional to help with your ideas can be another expensive mistake.

    At H&H Cabinets we offer an in-home consultation. We will go over your ideas and give our suggestions based on our years of experience.

What to think about when looking to renovate your kitchen

  • Before you start planning a new kitchen, the first thing to decide is whether you want to just update your existing kitchen or whether you want to do a complete renovation.

    Work out what you like and what you don’t like, based on this we can advise what will work and if there is something better based on the size of your kitchen and the shape.

  • How much storage do you need? Based on your current kitchen do you have enough storage?

    Where do you want to position the cupboards for your utensils, dinnerware and pots & pans? Having a large pantry is great for most families however accessing items at the back can be quite difficult, resulting in wastage of food. One of the best solutions for this is to use large pull-out drawers, allowing easy access to items stored at the very back.

  • What appliances or kitchen elements should be positioned close together, such as the fridge and cooking station?

    Does the space required for your appliances need to be a special size? For example do you have a slim fridge or a large 2 door fridge?

  • Do you want to store your gadgets such as kettle and toaster in a cupboard to reduce bench top clutter?

    For items that are used regularly this is not the most effective solution, however you can create a cupboard on the bench so appliances can be slid in and out of the cupboard on the bench easily.

Corner Kitchen Cabinet

You then have to figure out, based on the layout, any constraints that may need to be looked at such as size, the position of doors, the layout of kitchen etc. Corner kitchen cabinets can be very awkward and difficult to access. These days there are many accessories that pull-out for both under the bench and corner cabinets. A pull-out makes it easier to access items stored in the back of the cupboard allowing you to utilise the full space. Installing bi-fold doors on your kitchen cabinets allows you to leave the cupboard open whilst you are cooking with without it getting in the way. This is ideal for walk-in pantries, or internal laundries that are in your kitchen.

Our expert team can give you advice on every aspects of kitchen cabinets and design, helping you create the perfect kitchen for your space.

    House not level, walls not square? …….Flatpack cabinets, especially those that are bought online, bring with them a level of risk that may mean they do not entirely fit your space.

    Maximise your storage space

    You’ll want as much storage space as possible in your kitchen. A lot of re-designs make the mistake of installing less cabinetry than they actually have room for. This is wasted space that could be used for food storage, pots, pans and more. We can design a range of cabinet modifications that will truly make the most of all of your space, without sacrificing the visual aesthetic. A sleek, modern, minimalist kitchen with expansive amounts of storage is completely possible with our experts at the helm.

    Elements to consider when choosing kitchen cabinets

    Your design decisions are important, as they will not only dictate the cost of your project but the style and finish you will see every day. Quality is crucial, and when it comes to cabinets, you really do get what you pay for.

    The elements to consider will include:
    • Kitchen Cupboards
    • Kitchen Drawers
    • Kitchen Storage Cabinets
    • Kitchen Cabinetry Finishes and Materials
    • Kitchen Benchtops

    H&H Cabinets will help you consider the following elements and the impact they will have on your space:

    • Kitchen Cupboards

      The doors, drawers and handles dictate the look and feel of your kitchen design and are the first thing to be noticed. Luckily, there is a wide range of options available, and we’ll work to make sure they suit the rest of your cabinetry.

    • Kitchen Cupboard Doors

      You’ll need to consider options such as gloss, satin, shaker, panel, handleless doors, French provincial and more. This choice takes up a significant visual area of your kitchen, so it’s important that you find a style that you not only love but works with the other interior aspects of your home.

    • Kitchen Drawers

      A great way to utilise space that is usually wasted. Advancements in drawer systems mean items are easy to store and access. Soft-close drawers, in particular, have come a long way. We can upgrade your current drawer options to provide more storage space, greater ease of use, more access those hard to reach places and whisper quite to close

    • Kitchen Bin Drawers

      Hide your rubbish and save valuable floor space while making your kitchen visually more appealing. Add dual receptacles to make recycling or composting much easier. The correct storage of your kitchen bin and ease of access can also determine how hygienic the area will be.

    • Drawer Runners and Hinges

      The hardware of your kitchen is the workhorse and needs to be of high quality to account for how much your cupboards and drawers will be opened and closed. Poor quality options save money initially but lead to expensive problems in a short space of time. Our hinges & drawers are backed by a lifetime warranty Kitchen benchtops are the work horse of the kitchen……….need to add something in here please
