In straight-run base-cabinets, one consideration that should be a priority is, if at all possible, to include "roll-outs" (variably called roll-out shelves, trays, etc.) factory-installed inside them; this is because "roll-outs" provide much better accessibility to items stored there (but, if your budget will only allow one roll-out per cabinet, be sure to place it on the cabinets bottom level). But, in case you happen to not be replacing perfectly fine base cabinets which do not have "roll-outs", all is not lost; that advantage can be added later via "inserts". And, if you are then unable to find "inserts" from a manufacturer, they can be self-built and installed.
Beginning with base corner cabinets, we have: (1) the symmetrical easy reach -- this cabinet is the same length on each side of the corner and contains either shelves along its rear walls or a carousel with shelves "pie-cut" to accommodate the doors (a center hinge allows opening either the first door or both); (2) the asymmetircal easy reach -- this cabinet is a little shorter on one leg (if it includes a carousel, that diameter will be the length of the cabinets shorter leg); (3) the revolving -- this cabinet is like cabinet #1 but its doors revolve with the carousel shelves; (4) the diagonal-front -- this cabinet allows a full-circle carousel; and (5) the blind -- this cabinet looks like a straight-run cabinet but it extends into the corner along the side of an adjoining cabinet, structure, or appliance thus making its "buried" shelves accessible only from the front door (to allow better use of the "blind" corner cabinet, some manufacturers have cleverly created a cabinet with a first section which, on opening the door, pulls out and pivots to the side to expose roll-out trays which can then move forward to present their contents). Finally, there is a sink base corner cabinet that can be either an "L-shaped" cabinet to hold a butterfly sink or a diagonal-front cabinet with a regular straight-line sink -- a caveat whenever a corner sink cabinet is used: be sure that adequate standing area (for loading and unloading the dishwasher) is created by placing a 12-inch wide regular cabinet between the dishwasher and the corner cabinets side.
Varieties of Bathroom Linen Cabinets These cabinets are available in various designs and sizes to fit your bathrooms. For those who wish to give their bathrooms a modern look, smaller cabinets with more space is available and for those who prefer traditional lifestyle and choose not to make the place look stuffy antique style cabinets are available. You can store more than just linens with proper cabinets that are functional. There are a few linen cabinets that could fit in narrow places such as hallway and passages leading to the bathrooms with no extra space.
The Basics Before you shop for cabinets, it is a good idea to determine what type of cabinet you need and get familiar with the terminology used by the salesman. MDF is a medium density fiber board cabinet. Base Cabinets are the bottom part of the cabinets that sit on the floor. These project your overall kitchen layout. Wall Cabinets hang on the wall just above the Base Cabinets. But your design will likely have some Base Cabinets with nothing to hang above. An example would be the sink area. Framed Cabinets provide a traditional look as the cabinet does have a frame around the outside of the box and around each door.
