    What are Cabinet Accessories?

    Cabinet accessories can mean a lot of things, depending on what you’re trying to accomplish.


    By definition, cabinet accessories are “any accessory that is added to an appliance or equipment for purposes other than its primary function.” In the case of cabinetry and cabinets, these accessories are usually only limited by the homeowner’s imagination.


    Now let’s see why they are so important.




    The 1950s ushered in a new era of stylish yet functional furniture, transforming homes across America. Manufacturers began to create accessories like shelves, racks, and other organization tools that fit into the spaces between appliances like dishwashers and microwaves. These items allowed people to maximize their allotted space – creating even more storage potential than ever before! Cabinet accessories became a staple of kitchen design and remain essential to this day.

    Cabinet accessories offer many benefits, including:


    – Increased storage capacity


    – Improved functionality


    – Easy access to your essentials




    Everyday kitchen organization is becoming more and more about these cabinet accessories that add extra layers of utility while still adding a design element to the space. As more homeowners become designers themselves, they are creating customized layouts that suit their specific needs.


    Cabinet accessories allow homeowners to customize the organization systems within their cabinets without spending too much time or money on customizing new cabinetry. This allows for more creativity and individuality within a kitchen.




    The most popular types of cabinet accessories come in the form of shelving, utensil holders, spice racks, and towel bars. These pieces all focus on creating storage solutions that will help keep the kitchen organized while minimizing clutter. 




    Use your cabinets for more storage with shelving and drawers. Even if you don’t have a lot of space, having shelving makes it easier to organize items such as cooking utensils and spices. Having pull out shelves  means you can hide away items such as packets of sugar and flour, while still easily seeing what is inside at a glance.


    To create the ultimate unique look in your kitchen, add personal design touches to your cabinet accessories such as knobs or hooks (perfect for hanging utensils and even pots and pans).



    There are various types of racks that can be used. These include spice racks, wine racks, and plate racks. They keep spices, wines, and plates visible and accessible, and allow you to stack items yet keep them visible so that you can remember to use them. 



    Organization systems should be aesthetically pleasing while still being functional enough for everyday use. The end result of these systems are combinations of cabinets, racks, open shelving, and many other accessories that create a visually stunning space. In this post, we’ve explored the definitions and uses of modern cabinet accessories. For any further questions don’t hesitate to contact us at info@nelsonkb.com or call 832-998-6598.
