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.

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.

Naturally you will know that new kitchen cupboards will give your kitchen a whole new look! They will give a new life to the heart of your home, and if bought correctly, they can last years to come. Because your kitchen cupboards will live on in your kitchen for many years, or at least until you feel like or can afford to replace them again, you need to pick the right ones. It is easy to get overwhelmed by the choices that you have, so you need to break your decisions down to make them easier. The first thing to consider is your budget. Your budget will determine the whole change, and you will have a good idea of your limitations. If you know how much you can spend, then you can let the salesperson in the shop know what sort of price range you are looking at in advance, to save yourself the heartbreak of being shown beautiful cupboards that you can never afford. The next thing you can consider is the style and feel you are hoping for in your kitchen. This will in turn help you choose colours and materials. For example, if you are wishing for a homely, country style kitchen then you can consider buying wooden kitchen cupboards. If you want a more modern look, then you can consider getting something with steel finishes and modern knobs. For a fresh, clean kitchen that is timeless, you can choose smooth white cupboards with simple finishes. For a trendier kitchen, you can choose quirkier styles of cupboards and even a bold colour such as red! There are some premade kitchen cupboards that you can purchase. This means the style and colours will already have been created, you will simply need to order the size and quantity you want. This limits your freedom of choice with regards to specialising what you want, but it is also more cost effective. You will, however, have the option to get your kitchen cupboards custom made, and this is when the choices become a bit more important. You will have to choose the material, style and colour of your kitchen cupboards before they will be custom made and fitted into your kitchen. This gives you more creative freedom, but is also more costly. If you really want the freedom of expression, and want a unique kitchen you feel you have truly designed yourself, then the cost is worth it. Bear in mind that it is important for you to consider what you really want. Take your time in choosing the right cupboards, and do not choose something simply because it is cheap. Remember that the wrong materials or poorly constructed kitchen cupboards will warp and become tatty over time, and then you will have to do the remodelling all over again! If you are the kind of person who gets bored easily, then you must rather consider neutral colours. For a splash of colour and vibrancy in your kitchen you can dress up the cupboards by adding cute decorations and colourful plates around your kitchen.

People could make a decision on a house because of one option or choice, but more often than not, it is determined by several factors. Most choices come down to a house being well designed and fitting a families needs. From this an individual or family will expect the house or "investment" to grow in value over time. Some elements of the house are a bonus. Yes a well designed house makes the choice easier, but then with this choice will come other features that are nice additions. Smaller features of a house are not the deciding factor of home buying, but often help with the decision. One of these smaller features that could go along way is the kitchen cupboards or in other words the kitchen cabinets. Cabinets are not the first thing you think about when entering a house, but once you get to the kitchen, this feature becomes a noticeable and important attribute. A kitchen cupboard is an old term that has slowly transformed over the last half century. Many homes built before the nineteen fifties had the traditional kitchen cupboards. These cabinets were large solid wood fixtures that were often custom built for each individual house. The kitchen cupboard has transformed over the years and has become smaller in size. Of course this transformation has already started to go in a cycle and the traditional kitchen cupboard, once out of date, is showing up again. The housing boom in the nineteen fifties, largely brought on by the prosperity after the war caused a large demand for new housing. Tract housing developments called for new ideas for the kitchen. Traditional kitchen cupboards were no longer practical; instead, smaller, sleeker cabinets were needed to fit into these new houses. Houses were smaller and a large kitchen now became obsolete, so the kitchen cupboard was now substituted with the modern kitchen cabinet. For the next forty to fifty years these cabinets were the dominate feature in the kitchen. Of course there are always exceptions, but for the most part, the kitchen cupboard was downsized in height and width, made less appealing, and mostly was there for usage not design. Fortunately the cycle of design has changed and kitchen cabinets have come full circle. There are more choices today and actually a style of the kitchen cupboard is back in fashion. Large pantry cabinets have come back into a house and from this the renaissance of the kitchen has begun. Another sign of a "throw back" kitchen is the return of the taller kitchen cabinet. Most cabinets are around thirty inches high; however a forty two inch kitchen cabinet or kitchen cupboard had now become an option. Of course if youre going to buy these larger (forty two inch) kitchen cupboards, you will need a higher ceiling, but if you have that higher ceiling, these kitchen cabinets fill the space nicely. The kitchen cupboard has come a long way. Once a piece of furniture, it was then reduced to a no-frills, practical use, but now it has made its way into the kitchen as a furnishing with style.
