Functional Cabinet Doors
Want to enhance functionality in your space? Here are a few trending hardware ideas for cabinet doors that can help you keep your space clutter-free.
Opening upward rather than the traditional door swing, the hinge introduces the ability to flip the panel upwards for access and downwards to conceal. The lift up system can be used for hiding dishes and small appliances like a microwave oven. This style is an alternate to the typically seen tambour doors, or ‘garage’ style doors, rising upwards. The hinge offers a great hidden hardware look too.
Pocket doors are always convenient in a home setting. Functioning just like doorway entries, the cabinet doors slide into separate built-in compartments. Helps work-spaces stay free of clutter and easy to get around without having to leave doors open while prepping and cooking. Also allows for you to hide large items like pantry storage and appliances.
An alternative to swinging doors, bi-fold doors are very practical for easy access into cabinets. The doors function on a track and fold over one another using a continuous row of fasteners, known as a ‘piano hinge’. The hinge also keeps the door panels from warping out of plane. The system works great for cabinets that sit on countertops for quick accessible storage while cooking. Bi-fold doors can also be used to hide larger appliances like a washer and dryer set in your kitchen or laundry space.
