5 Reasons Why Drawers Trump Cabinets

June 18, 2018

Let us ask you a question: what form of kitchen storage space do you have? Most traditional American kitchens are equipped with both upper and lower rows of cabinets – accessed via door fronts – and accommodate everything from pots and pans to spices and baking ingredients. And why would you have it any other way?

Well, we’ve got a few reasons for you. While cabinet door fronts have characterized kitchens for generations, let’s pause for a second and consider a better approach: fully extending drawers. At BauBox, we can’t stop raving about this storage solution, and believe that it’s the best way to go in modern, quality kitchens. We have five reasons that are sure to convince you, too!

1. One Glance is All It Takes

How many times have you bought a new gadget or ingredient, only to find it again months later, lurking at the very back of your cabinet? This is one of the biggest problems with door front cabinets: it’s all too easy to overlook something – or to simply not muster up the energy to search for it. The result, of course, is that your storage space gets fuller, while your wallet gets emptier. Drawers, on the other hand, allow you to see their entire contents at one glance, saving you a whole lot of time, frustration, and money in the long run.

2. Organize Like a Pro

Along with taking stock of your quality kitchen’s inventory with minimal effort, you’ll find that organizing your drawers is much simpler, too. While it’s likely that whatever you put in your door front cabinets is going to be moved around, resulting in a maddening topsy-turvy, drawers are easily and clearly systematized with dividers, storage boxes, or even labels. Whether or not you’re a neat freak, there’s no denying that it’s nice to find an item exactly where you left it!

3. Safety First

When you’re pressed for time and quickly shove your pots and pans back in the cupboard, you’re often punished the next time you need them. Haste does indeed make waste when you open the cabinet and its ingredients come crashing down on the floor – or land right on your feet. Drawers, by contrast, are much better at safely containing their contents, especially if they have tall sides. Their winning combination of safety and convenience is matchless, making them a must-have for all quality kitchens.

4. Maximize Space

It’s a lose-lose situation: either your cupboards are so full that you can’t find anything, or you don’t make use of the space at the back to avoid having to search. Either way, you’re better off installing drawers, which not only give you a quick and easy overview of its contents, but also allow you to use every inch of space. Suddenly it’s a win-win!

5. Beautiful Inside and Out

Let’s face it: the cool appeal of drawers is high. After all, isn’t it a great feeling to effortlessly open and close them, and locate what you’re looking for in the blink of an eye? And for those of you who prefer spacious, quality kitchens that aren’t cluttered, you have the option only loading up on slick drawers instead.
