One step towards a Made-in-Japan kitchen in your home.

Your kitchen cabinets aren’t just there to look pretty – they are a means of storage, and they also dictate the functionality of the kitchen and your cooking workflow. Essentially, they’re – well, essential.

But to ensure that you design a kitchen cabinet that meets all your requirements, here are 4 questions to ask yourself.

1. What kitchen layout should I adopt?

Most Singaporeans don’t have the luxury of large kitchens, so it’s important to choose a cabinet layout that utilises the available space properly. I-shaped and L-shaped designs are probably your best bets, since they take up less space than other designs and create a visually-streamlined look.

If you’ve been blessed with a bigger kitchen (lucky you!), go wild and experiment with your layouts. You can take the conventional route with the layouts listed above, or go ahead and create that coveted kitchen island using your cabinets.

2. What material should my kitchen cabinets be made of?

Kitchens in Singapore are typically filled with wooden or laminated cabinets, but are those materials really the best choice? After all, your kitchen cabinets will be home to a ton of heavy appliances – not to mention, be constantly hit by all that heat and moisture from your cooking.

Here’s a more durable alternative: stainless steel cabinets. Cabinets like Nasluck's Stainless Steel ones are made with 18% chromium and 8% nickel, which is both durable and sleek-looking. In the long run, it’ll save you lots of heartbreak (and money), so it’s definitely a worthwhile investment to consider.

3. How much storage do I need?

Don’t underestimate the amount of storage you need in the kitchen. Seeing how you’ll need to have enough space for your food, appliances, and other knick-knacks, you’ll definitely need enough space to stow everything away.

But just having sufficient space won’t do you much good if you’re always digging through your drawers to find the one item you need. You need to make the kitchen work for you, so here are some smart storage ideas to help you organise your space:

  • Corner racks: they turn dead corners into effective storage spaces
  • Drawers underneath the sink: making use of that otherwise-large, unused space to store more things
  • Two or three-tier drawers: give you more compartments to sort out your stuff.

4. Are the kitchen cabinets I want easy to maintain?

Stainless steel cabinets aren’t just easier to maintain – the upkeep is pretty inexpensive too. Being non-porous, they’re impervious to stains and liquids, meaning that you can clean it easily with a simple wipe. Plus, they’re also odour-resistant and anti-microbial, meaning you won’t have to worry about lingering germs or smells after you’re done cooking.

Bonus: cockroaches are less likely to penetrate into stainless steel cabinets - so germaphobes, you can breathe a sigh of relief.
