A THOUGHTFUL KITCHEN CABINET

A cabinet for all heights


A vital part of every culture and community revolves around food and the kitchen becomes an important space. It is my favorite room in the home. I’ve always wanted to redesign the kitchen cabinet because I get frustrated at the need to grab a chair to reach the highest two shelves of the cabinets. Why does one need to grab an object to access another object?   

I wanted a cabinet that was minimal and calm, where thoughtful dishware can be kept at a reachable height. Never having made a cabinet before, I wanted to learn how to make a kumiko sliding door and a glass hinge door, so both were incorporated into the cabinet.
