Kitchen Cabinet Components and Accessories
Whether you're designing a brand-new kitchen or planning to update an existing one, browsing the range of kitchen cabinet components and accessories will be a major part of the process. These style flourishes can help express your personality and design style in a number of fun and interesting ways.
You'll first want to decide how closely you want the components and accessories to match the style of the cabinets themselves. You may want to keep a strict style throughout all elements of your kitchen. If that's the case, then your hardware, components and accessories will need to reflect the overall design. If you're willing to depart slightly from the core design, though, components and accessories can be more eclectic or even artistic.
Knobs, pulls and door handles are a popular choice for adding personality to a kitchen design. Monogrammed or hand-painted pulls, antique door handles or even ones made from sturdy rope or other non-traditional materials have become more popular, and they all can add great visual interest to your kitchen design.
Other popular accessories and components for kitchen cabinets are more focused on efficiency and function than style. Lazy Susans are a popular storage option, particularly for corner cabinets, where they can help you access the deepest recesses of the cabinet simply by spinning food stores to the front. Built-in recycling bins, cabinet doors that stow away and even retractable shelving for small appliances are components that can create a more efficient kitchen workspace.
