That may be the case for some, but in my own home, I have a large cabinet where I keep all the pots and pans and cooking gear. In the kitchen, I’m not going to go too crazy with this, but there is nothing like the cabinets in my kitchen to make cooking easy. Having your cookware in the cabinet is a great way to make the kitchen not look like you have a big kitchen.
If you’re like me – with a huge pantry and not a lot of room to run around in, where you cook things from scratch – having an open cupboard door may be the best way to go. Or, if you’re like me, you may still be a little bit afraid to go that route. But if that’s the case, here’s a little tip for you. Don’t just put your pots and pans on a counter in your kitchen and just leave them there.
You can, of course, use the counter as a place to keep your food. Or you can put your pans and pots on a shelf so you can easily grab them as needed. But, again, not being afraid to get messy is a great thing. I, for one, have always been terrified to touch my kitchen pots and pans because my hands were always so sticky with grease, so I always keep them on the counter.
I am sure you’ve all heard this one before. “If I had the kitchen sink all the time and didn’t have to worry about it, I’d be a lot safer.” But if I had the kitchen sink all the time, then I’d probably be a lot more like the average Joe.
Well, that’s what I thought. But when I first heard about this idea, I was pretty shocked at the idea of having a kitchen all the time. I’ve always cooked on the counter and have also always been very careful not to break anything. Now I know it is because I am afraid that my kitchen cabinets will get ruined and then I will have to buy a whole new kitchen.
Kitchen cabinets were a popular subject in our early days. When we were designing and building the first homes we tested out the idea that kitchen cabinets were something people would never have in their homes without us. They were something that took too much of your time and resources and that would be a bad thing for your family. So for a while we just made it very clear that our kitchen cabinets will only work in the homes we build, and in no other homes we were to use them anyway.
The thing is, while the kitchen is something that people need to have in their homes, the kitchen is also a very important part of a home’s overall look. So if you don’t have any cabinets and you don’t really want to invest in them, you can always have your kitchen redesigned so that it looks exactly the same. We like the look of no cabinets on the kitchen island in our new home, but we will still want cabinets on the counter and in the backs of cabinets.
If you’re asking, “Why not?” then you’re asking the wrong question. If you do want cabinets and it doesn’t look like a kitchen, then you should of course want them in there. But if you don’t want them in there at all, you should know that you can always have them removed.
For a remodeling project, it is common for contractors to use a “no cabinet” strategy. They will have the cabinets removed and replace the cabinets with kitchen cabinets. The contractor will then paint the cabinets and put the new cabinets in the backs of existing cabinets. This allows the contractor to use the existing cabinets, while still allowing the contractor to have extra cabinets for storage. With this strategy in place, it doesn’t matter if the cabinets are too small or too big.
This strategy works great for remodeling the kitchen, but homeowners are often confused about whether they should replace the cabinets or not. The common misconception of a no cabinet strategy is that you should just throw away the cabinets and build a new kitchen from scratch. This is not true, because you will have to replace the cabinets you removed. If you dont do this, your contractor will likely charge you more money for a new kitchen than an old kitchen.
