Cabinet Organization Options

Cabinet organization is a crucial aspect of kitchen design. Whether you’re renovating your current space or starting from scratch, understanding the various options for organizing base, wall, and tall cabinets is essential. These three types of cabinets serve distinct purposes within the kitchen layout and offer unique organizational opportunities to maximize storage and streamline daily activities.

Base Cabinet Storage

Base cabinet storage refers to storage solutions within the lower cabinets of a kitchen or other storage spaces. Base cabinets are typically located beneath countertops and provide essential storage for kitchen tools, utensils, pots, pans, and other items. Here are some common base cabinet storage options:

 

1.Two-Thirds’ Depth Plywood Shelves:Most base cabinets come with two-thirds’ depth, ¾” plywood adjustable shelves, accommodating various items of different sizes. Adjustable shelves allow for customization based on your unique needs. Full-depth adjustable shelves are also available.

 

2.Pull-Out/Roll-Out Trays:Most cabinets can be modified to add pull-out trays that make it easier to access items stored in the back of the cabinet. This feature enhances visibility and convenience. All Ultimo roll trays are made of the same hardwood as our drawer boxes and are dovetailed in the same way.

 

3.Lazy Susans:Lazy Susans are rotating shelves that can be installed in corner base cabinets, providing easy access to items in the corners without having to reach deep into the cabinet. Our wooden Ultimo Super Susans have a stop assist mechanism to prevent over-rotation and provide superior convenience to plastic or bar-mounted variants.

 

4.Built-in Bins and Dividers:Ultimo base cabinets are endlessly customizable, and we offer many different built-in bins and dividers to help you organize, such as recycling bins, trash bins, or dividers for storing cutting boards and baking sheets.

 

5.Specialized Storage Solutions:We also offer specialized storage solutions, features such as pull-out spice racks, knife blocks, KitchenAid mixers and many more.

 

When planning base cabinet storage, it’s important to consider the specific needs of the user, the available space, and the overall kitchen design. Effective organization and accessibility in base cabinets can significantly contribute to the functionality and efficiency of a kitchen or storage area.

Wall Cabinet Storage

Wall cabinet storage refers to the storage solutions found in the upper cabinets or wall-mounted cabinets in a kitchen or any storage space. Wall cabinets are commonly installed above countertops and provide a convenient and accessible way to store items. Here are some features and considerations related to wall cabinet storage:

 

1. Full-Depth Plywood Shelves:Ultimo cabinets are crafted with standard full-depth, ¾” adjustable plywood shelves, allowing you to customize the interior space to accommodate items of different heights.

 

2. Open Shelving:Instead of doors, most wall cabinets can be modified to feature open shelving, providing easy access to items, and creating an open and airy feel in the kitchen. This is a popular choice for displaying decorative pieces.

 

3. Top-Hinged Doors:Modern lift-up mechanisms by Blum can transform the way you access your cabinets.

 

4. Wall Spice Storage:Our convenient, door-mounted wood spice racks are removable for easy meal prepping. An easy way to use and organize all your herbs and spices.

 

5. Built-in Wine Racks:We offer both stand alone and built-in wine racks, providing a stylish and convenient way to store wine bottles.

 

When planning wall cabinet storage, it’s important to consider the user’s preferences, the kitchen layout, and the overall design theme. Efficient organization and accessibility in wall cabinets contribute to a functional and visually appealing kitchen or storage area. The combination of both base and wall cabinet storage solutions helps create a well-organized and user-friendly kitchen space.

Tall Cabinet Storage

Tall cabinet storage refers to storage solutions provided by cabinets that are taller in height compared to base cabinets and often extend from the floor to the ceiling. These cabinets are versatile and can be used in various rooms, such as kitchens, pantries, bathrooms, or utility rooms. Here are some features and considerations related to tall cabinet storage:

 

1. Full-Depth Plywood Shelves:Our adjustable pantry shelves are solid plywood, full depth, ¾” thick, and allow you to fully customize your pantry storage.

 

2. Built-in Drawers: Pantry cabinets can be customized with drawers, any of which can be modified with further organization options. You can also choose to keep the convenience of drawers and the look of your cabinet with roll-out trays.

 

3. Utility Cabinets:Store your vacuum, brooms, mops, and other household items with one of our utility cabinet modifications without sacrificing aesthetics. Customize the size of your utility cabinet doors to match adjacent cabinets so you can have the convenience and the look in a single coherent package.

 

4. Linen Cabinets:In bathrooms, tall cabinets are often used as linen cabinets, providing storage for towels, toiletries, and other bathroom essentials. Note: these cabinets are typically 84” tall to allow for access into tight spaces. We recommend measuring carefully to determine larger cabinets can be moved into the space.

 

5. Deeper Standard Cabinets:We offer 24”, 25”, 26”, and 27”-deep standard depth tall cabinets. Maximize your storage potential with a deeper pantry cabinet. As a bonus, deeper tall cabinets look better with your counter top than 24” deep cabinets.
