Cabinetry's "High Achievers"
Cabinets are classified into categories such as tall cabinets (sometimes called pantry cabinets), wall cabinets and base cabinets. As you look at different cabinetry solutions, you may wonder what the difference is between one cabinet and another. In this overview, you’ll learn about the types of tall cabinets available and how you can use them.
What are Tall Cabinets?
Tall cabinets top many other cabinet types in terms of both height and storage capacity, making them the true "high achievers" of cabinetry. They are available in sizes up to 96 inches in height.
Tall cabinets are often used for pantry and utility storage, with the ability to accommodate large or unwieldy items, from bulk food supplies, to mops and brooms, to kids' jackets and boots.
Types of Tall Cabinets Available
Although there are several types of tall cabinets available, here are a few varieties commonly used throughout the home.
Oven and Microwave Cabinets
Oven cabinets are available in different configurations and various sizes to accommodate single or double ovens, as well as oven-microwave combinations (like this Oven and Microwave Cabinet) and warming drawers.
The Pantry SuperCabinet is the ultimate in pantry organization and storage, keeping must-have items easily accessible.
Uses for Tall Cabinets
Tall cabinets create new possibilities with uses that extend past the kitchen and into other rooms throughout the home. Here are a few ways to use tall cabinets.
Minimize Mudroom Messiness
Help the entire family stay neat and organized with a tall cabinet entry ensemble in your mudroom. It can include space for hats, coats and bags in the middle, deep drawers for mittens and scarves, plus room for shoes below.
Majestic Cabinet Looks
Add to the sweeping height of tall cabinets by incorporating crown moulding that draws eyes upward to linger on a floor-to-ceiling expanse of gorgeous wood. Use anywhere from the kitchen to the family room to create the feel of a higher ceiling.
Love Your Laundry
Make the laundry room a pleasant and convenient place to be. Use tall cabinets to frame your washer and dryer for a luxurious look. Add a utility tall cabinet for the ironing board, detergents, cleaners and soaps. Use complementary base cabinets to create a folding area, and add a hanging rack beneath wall cabinets for freshly pressed items.
