What to Consider Before Choosing a Cabinet Design
This is the first thing to consider before purchasing a kitchen cabinet in Kenya. In the design of modern kitchens, there is a tendency to keep an open concept. If this is your case, you should locate your wardrobe on a perimeter wall because otherwise you will interrupt the style and may even obstruct the view, which is precisely what the open concept seeks to avoid. On the other hand, if what you want is to have a more private kitchen, with traditional distribution, think that high cabinets can even help you to create the divisions you need.
Regarding this point, it is important to know that there is no standard measurement, so you will find several sizes available. What we can tell you is that, according to the trends that we have been able to observe in the market, the maximum height does not usually exceed 2 meters. Our recommendation is that you take the measurements of height, width, and depth of the place where you plan to place your wardrobe so that you are sure to buy one with the appropriate dimensions.
