Cheap Kitchen Cabinets
In purchasing a cheap kitchen cabinet, you have to consider its functionality more than just the design. Any kitchen worth its salt will have a large amount of equipment that needs to be kept out of the way, but at the same time, easily accessible.
A kitchen storage unit has to have enough space to be useful, enough dividers, drawers etc, but it also needs to last for years and not break the bank. It is not enough to buy new kitchen cabinets based solely on its color and design.
Though, these qualities are important, they should not be your only basis for making a decision. How well constructed and how practical it is should be major considerations as well as the cost.
Here are the five best kitchen cabinets on the market to help you decide. They are all from well known suppliers with good reputations, and are all extremely good value for money.
Catskill Craftsmen Double Door Kitchen Cabinet, White
This white kitchen cabinet is not just beautiful but it is made for function as well. Overall dimensions are 28.5 x 12.5 x 36 in measurement, so not enormous, but the layout means it holds more than you would expect. Pretty spacious for a small cabinet.
Compared with many other kitchen cabinets, this is smaller in so it does not take up much space and is perfect for a small kitchen. The double doors fit really nicely and are easily opened and closed.
This one comes flat packed - so needs assembly. But it is easy to put together, although an electric screw driver will probably be a useful tool. It will go together in minutes. Definitely worth the money at less than $100. Nice, practical, simple. I like it.
Napa Kitchen Center
This is a slightly different kitchen cabinet - a center cabinet with four wheels conveniently in place so you can move it around and use it as a work table. It has two utility drawers and double door storage cabinet with adjustable shelf center storage area. This also has a towel or paper towel holder and a two shelf spice rack.
I really like the idea of this much functionality - especially as kitchens tend to be getting smaller during the "economic crisis," and we have less space to waste on useless products, which I think is a good thing.
This also comes unassembled, and is a little harder to put together than the previous model, but not exactly expert carpenter standard - so don't worry too much. Another great value for money product and extremely useful.
South Shore Furniture Morgan Collection Floor Cabinet and Stationery, Royal Cherry
This cherry kitchen cabinet is from the South Shore Furniture Morgan Collection. It has a double door floor cabinet and stationery for extra storage. This one is made from recycled wood and fiber with a cherry finish. It has one fixed shelf and 3 adjustable shelves. This double doors have 2 black plastic loop handles for easy opening and closing.
This also has a double door lock for security, so you can store your more expensive dinnerware here. This also has a very sturdy stand, and is 60 inches high, definitely a high quality cabinet for its price. However, the actual cherry is darker than the picture. Nevertheless, this is absolutely both grandeur and function combined.
At around $120 - I think a good buy, but a touch less practical than the previous models. Not something you want to be going in and out of every five minutes.
Elite Home Fashions Dawson Collection Shelved Wall Cabinet, White
This is a white kitchen wall cabinet that provides you an enclosed shelf for your kitchen appliances and equipment. Very sturdy and well made, it has panelled doors with rounded knobs. The style and look isn't just great for kitchen design - you could use it in other rooms as well. It has a crisscross-patterned window that really makes it look very fashionable.
Well made, good value for money and practical about describe the cabinet. It is rather difficult to assemble though, and fixing it to a wall is a two man job.
The price is extremely attractive as well - Amazon sell them at around $65 at the moment. You would be hard pushed to find a better product at that price.
Oak Finish Home or Office Storage Cabinet Organizer
This kitchen cabinet features one full fixed shelf, and six adjustable shelves.It is very sturdy and stands 71 1/2 high. Made from "engineered woods" or recycled wood and fiber.
It has an oak finish, this could look great with many kitchen designs, although it was not primarily designed for a kitchen - I like it for its functionality.
The adjustable shelves allows you to design the cabinet to your own convenience. This is really a great kitchen cabinet. It is beautiful, functional and convenient as well as being a good deal for the price.
If you are on a tight budget and need a lot of storage space - I heartily recommend this one.
