Kitchen Doors vs Drawers
Doors or drawers usually comes down to functionality
These days we have so many choices when designing a kitchen that the decisions can be quite overwhelming. At The Kitchen Design Centre we help to simplify these choices by providing simple, practical information and advice to help you choose the right solution for your kitchen and your lifestyle. For example, installing drawers under your benches or in pantries has become an alternative to the commonly used cupboards with doors (both of our kitchen showrooms demonstrate these). There are benefits to both options.
A cupboard with doors provides a uniform look, usually with less division lines, potentially requiring less handles. They are also more cost effective than drawers. Doors are also a more acceptable look for a traditional style kitchen as they are one of the original cupboard covering concepts in kitchen design. Our kitchen showrooms show doors working for both modern and traditional style kitchens.
Drawers are a very practical choice for reaching the items you may keep at the back of your cupboards, pulling them forward for easy access. Items at the front of the cupboard are no longer knocked over when you reach to the back for the items you need. Large drawers help a modern décor appear minimalist and sleek. Drawers can also be installed inside a cupboard with a door on the front to provide the best of all options for your kitchen. The weight capacity of a drawer is almost double that of a shelf/cupboard allowing more storage. Both of our showrooms show a wide variety of drawer options so we know you’ll find what you need.
At The Kitchen Design Centre our designers are committed to providing the necessary advice and to helping you choose the right solution for your kitchen needs. Visit our kitchen showrooms in either Eltham or Blackburn to see all the possibilities.
