For that extra bit of storage space, cupboards can’t be beaten. Allow us help you find the perfect cupboard for your requirements.
Our guide below outlines everything you could ever want to know about choosing a cupboard.
Size is an obvious factor when thinking about any piece of furniture intended for storage.
A small cupboard is perfect if you’re struggling for space, particularly a 1 door or single cupboard like the Desire. If you’d prefer a roomier solution, try a 2 door option instead.
Don’t forget about corner cupboards if you’re trying to save space. A corner cupboard is shaped to fit perfectly into a corner, ensuring no floorspace is wasted.
Our wooden cupboard selection come in a range of materials and finishes, so you can pick the best look for your existing furnishings.
Oak cupboards are better suited to more rustic décor and most often seen in a clear lacquer finish. The colour and beautiful woodgrain are brought out by the lacquer, giving the oak a warm appearance.
Pine cupboards are a smart choice if you’d like a darker or uncommon finish, since pine can be stained in a range of colours. Pine cabinets are just as strong as oak cabinets but less weighty. The only drawback is that their woodgrain isn’t as remarkable.
The most eco-friendly option is reclaimed wood. Being older wood, it is extremely sturdy and less likely to split.
Be aware that the colours you choose for your furniture can have a huge effect on the overall look of your room.
If your room is large, has high ceilings or feels cold or empty, darker wood finishes and colours will make the space seem cosier, smaller and more welcoming.
Use light wood finishes and colours to open up a cramped or shadowy room.
Next, which door handles would you prefer?
Different woodworking features convey different styles, so be sure you’re getting the right look for your home before buying. Some examples of woodworking features are included here.
Leg choice also matters. Chunky square leg profiles are favoured by rustic and some contemporary designs. Narrower legs are also an option, taking weight and width off the cupboard to make it look more delicate and help to conserve space.
A plinth is good for Scandi, modern and modern retro styles since it gives your cupboard a squarer, simpler shape.
Finally, edge profiles are the finishing touch on your cupboard. There are plenty of edge profiles out there, but here are the ones you’ll most likely see in our selection.
