Problem-Solving Cabinets - Continued

Some cabinets may stretch your notion of cabinetry — a bathroom vanity, for example, that could pass for a lowboy, complete with cabriole legs (26).

Fitted cabinets in the bathroom provide convenient storage for countless personal grooming items. If you can’t squeeze almost as many cabinets into the bathroom as you find in the average kitchen, you may be missing sales and design opportunities (27).

Everything from a phone desk to a kitchen computer center to a full-blown home office can be defined with cabinets (28, 29, 30), although you might want to trim the toeboard where it crosses the kneespace.

Instead of abandoning the laundry room to a strictly utilitarian fate, fit the appliances into a cabinet surround (31, 32). It makes one of the hardest-working rooms in the house a nicer place to be.

Cabinets can take the place of dressers and closets in the bedroom, creating a custom-designed environment with standard cabinet options (33, 34).

Family Room

Cabinets can improve the looks of a gas fireplace (35, 36). Creating a contemporary credenza requires little more than a reorganization of standard boxes (37).

In today’s house, if you can’t tell when you’ve left the kitchen, you’re probably on the right track.
