Different Types Of Cabinetry

March 8, 2022

Cabinetry is a general term that encompasses furniture of many different designs and purposes. As you consider the design of a new kitchen, bathroom, living room, or bedroom, it would be useful to have a good idea of the different types of cabinetry available. When you understand the primary varieties of cabinetry, you can make an informed decision as to which ones will suit you best. While there is a nearly endless variety of cabinetry at your disposal, they are all variations of the following three basic types.

Base Cabinetry 

Base cabinetry is fixed to the floor and usually measures around 36 inches in height, with a four-inch rise called a toe-kick underneath the door. This is the cabinetry you would install under your kitchen counters or bathroom vanity. 

Wall Cabinetry

Wall cabinetry describes the cupboards that are positioned more or less at eye level. It is generally about 12 inches deep and has the same width and height as base cabinetry – except in the case of special, customized designs.

Tall Cabinetry

Tall cabinetry is essentially base cabinetry with added height to serve as broom storage or pantry space. On average, tall cabinetry is usually around 84 inches in height.

There are many variations on these three basic types, and specialty units can always be custom-designed depending on your needs. Corner cabinets, suspended units, bottle racks and appliances garages are among the more common specialty units that are usually called for in kitchen design.
