Thanks to this, it can be moved unlike the built-in version. However, the transfer implies that it will have to be completely disassembled, and then assembled in a new place. The size is often chosen in such a way that the tip is under the very ceiling - then all the available space is used most optimally.

Corner Cabinet Design

First of all, when choosing a design, it is necessary that it fits well with the interior of the room. For small rooms it is better to look at models with the color of the tone of the walls. So it will stand out less and visually continue the line of walls, increasing the visible size of the room. Glass surfaces will multiply the effect of a visual increase in space. For large rooms, you can choose a contrasting design, thus creating a cozy corner in a vast space.

A cabinet in bright colors helps to expand the space of the room.

Materials for the facade:

  1. MDF, fiberboard. Veneered or coated with decorative film material wins due to affordable prices. Cabinets with such a facade are suitable for many traditional types of interior.
  2. Mirror. Mirrored doors and front walls help visually expand the visible boundaries of the room. They can be decorated with matte painting, which looks very elegant.
  3. Strained glass. Cabinets with glass translucent, matte or glossy walls look great in rooms made in the style of hi-tech, minimalism or modern. At the same time, a wide range of coloring and decoration of glass gives free rein to design decisions. The disadvantage of this solution is the relatively high cost.
  4. Photo printing. Often done by sticking high-quality photographs printed on adhesive vinyl film on a base of MDF. Although it can be attributed to cabinets with MDF facade design, however, the unique look allows you to separate it into a separate category.
  5. Decorative acrylic. Acrylic sheets are usually translucent, but can have a matte as well as a glossy surface. They can replace glass in the design of the facade. High strength, good appearance and a wide range of colors gives acrylic a big plus in combination with a relatively low cost.
  6. Bamboo. This material looks great in the interior and has good strength and water resistance. The bamboo facade has its own beauty and nobility. It has excellent qualities for furniture, but on the other hand, it is quite expensive.
  7. Rattan is another exotic material for cabinet design, which is made from creeper. Due to its resistance to humidity, it is used even for furniture in the bathroom. The appearance is very simple to change, because the rattan is easy to paint.
  8. Combined option. In this design, a mirror or glass is usually combined with fiberboard or other material.
