Built in Bedroom Cupboards Design Ideas Having a large room to install your dream wardrobe in is easy. Just add more cupboards than you need but what if youre staying in a flat or a small apartment with a space of only 2.5 meters to work with? Well theres a solution for that as well. The key here is to utilize every inch of space that you possibly can and to do that you need to make your bedroom cupboards wider. Instead of installing five 5mm units next to each other rather fit two 1 meter cupboards and one 500mm cupboard. This will widen the space you need to utilize in your 1 meter units and prevent you from wasting that valuable space you so badly need. Benefits of wider shelving units The benefits of using a 1 meter unit instead of using two 500mm units is that you can fit three items next to each other whereas with a 500mm unit you can only fit one item on a shelf. There will be a bit of space next to each clothing item in the 500mm shelf but it will be wasted space. Creating more space with drawers Drawers are also a great way to great more space when it comes to designing built in bedroom cupboards as all the clothing items stored in a drawer are fully accessible. Like wardrobes drawers are also better utilized when made wider. This obviously doesnt apply to socks and underwear but when using it to store other clothing items like t-shirts and pants or other bigger and wider clothing items it does. Hanging unit design ideas Most bedroom cupboards consists of more hanging space than packing space as most men wear shirts more often than t-shirts. I mean men do spend more time at work than at home these days so it would probably only make sense to have more shirts. Women overall use much more hanging space than packing space as women mostly wear pants suites, dresses, skirts and other items that need to be hung up. Most women also poses a night gown which demands for more hanging space in the cupboard. When designing a mens hanging wardrobe you only really need to place two hanging rods in a unit above one another as a mens shirt or suite jacket is usually short. A womens hanging bedroom unit will have a bit of a different design where the hanging rods will be slit on half. This means that on the left side of the cupboard there will be one hanging rod and on the right side two hanging rods with a divider between the two sections. This will allow the one side to be used for shorter items and the long side for night gowns and longer dresses.
Kitchen Cupboards - Decorative Organizational Options For Any Kitchen If you are planning to replace your kitchen cupboards, you should know that they come with a very large price tag. They are available in a very large variety of designs, materials and styles in both the cabinets themselves and the doors also. To gain a good visual of the final look of your updated kitchen with the selected cupboards, you can obtain computer visualization from your local home improvement stores. The first thing to do in the planning for new cupboards, is to take very detailed and complete measurements of the areas within the kitchen space, including the areas for the appliances and the counter top measurements. With this information, the home improvement store will be able to design a plan of the kitchen area you are planning. A sales man from the store will make a physical visit to your home to verify the measurements of the kitchen; this will not only ensure that the new kitchen cupboards will have the correct space that they require, but also the correct pricing will be possible given the exact measurements. There are many options for kitchen cupboards, the types are stock cupboards, semi-custom, and also custom cabinetry. Stock one are available in standard sizes only and can be purchased in a limited number of color and style options. The stock cupboards are simple drawer and styles only. Semi-custom cupboards can be purchased in standard sizes although there are more options available with these cupboards in regards to storage units, design details and style. They come in a number of wood and colored varieties. Their quality and cost by far exceeds that of the stock cupboards. The storage choices available in the semi-custom cupboards are quite extensive. When considering this type of cupboard, pay particular attention to your most urgent storage issues to be able to determine the best solution in the semi-custom cupboards. The costliest cupboards are the custom cupboards. These are made specifically for your kitchen only. You are free to choose the design, style, and size for your custom kitchen, but you will pay for the ability to specially order your kitchen cupboards in this way. With a custom design you are getting a quality of fit and wood that far exceeds that of the semi-custom and the stock cupboards. The most important consideration in kitchen cupboards design is the setting of the budget. Before you purchase a design service, you must set a budget for the work. Your costs will vary greatly depending on whether you choose, custom, semi-custom or stock cupboards. The usual standard is that when designing a new kitchen, 50% of the new budget will go towards the cost of new cupboards. One effective way to determine how much you should spend on the new cupboards is to consider how much longer you will remain in the home. If you will be moving within the next two years, then you should spend less that if you plan to be in the house for several more years. If staying for many more years, you should not economize but instead go all out to design the highest quality kitchen you could afford.
Organizing Tips - How to Organize Messy Cupboards There are many benefits to having organized cupboards and, specifically, kitchen cupboards. How many times have you been looking for a box of spaghetti and not been able to find it? Off to the store you go to buy yet another box of spaghetti, only to discover while looking for something else the following week that you now have enough spaghetti to feed a small army. Organized cupboards saves you money on your grocery bills, the time you had to take to go to the store and the aggravation of digging through the cupboards to come up empty-handed when you know you have the item you are looking for. Simple organization of your cupboards will put an end to all that hassle. If your cupboard space is small, invest in one or a few of the over the door racks that hold canned goods and smaller items. Plastic shelves designed for cupboards are also ideal to use in the kitchen. A great way to use them is for small items such as cups that can be stored on and below the shelf to save space in the cupboard and yet be accessible. Put boxed food, such as all your pasta items on one shelf. This includes macaroni noodles, the 42 boxes of spaghetti you now have, macaroni and cheese as well as your tomato, Alfredo and any canned or jar spaghetti sauce. Depending on the size of your cupboard shelves, designate a shelf for breakfast foods, a shelf for canned goods such as vegetables and fruits and a shelf for juice drinks, mixes, tea bags, coffee and hot coco. Put snack foods and lunch foods that the kids can help themselves to on a lower shelf so they can easily reach them. Of course, you will want to have guidelines concerning the availability of these snacks for the children. Invest in a label maker and label the shelves with the items that go on them. Now, if your spouse or kids help put the groceries away, they know where to put them. If you have a lot of cupboard space you could go as far as making a label for the outside of each cupboard. This, of course, would depend on the style of your kitchen and would need to be attractive as well as useful. Keeping your kitchen cupboards organized will not only save you time when you are running late and need to make a quick lunch or dinner but will also help the babysitter find the juice boxes if you step out for the evening.
