12 pictures of cabinets in your home to save space

Loading admin actions …

A cabinet is an indispensable piece of furniture in any home. It is impossible to keep your home organized and clutter-free without it. Gone are the days when people had large houses with ample space to build huge cabinets. Now flats, row houses or even independent homes and bungalows have shrunk in size not only in cities but in small towns too. We need a smart solution to build spacious cabinets within the limited space and utilizing every area of your home.

You will agree with us that no matter how many cabinets you build, you will still need more. We at Homify have come up with 12 smart ideas of cabinets just for you. Let’s see and get inspired!

​1. A complete kitchen

These beautiful kitchen cabinets in mauve are so well planned that it can keep your entire kitchen organized. There are open and covered shelves here. It is up to you what to show and what to keep covered.

​2. Black and white is modern

The classic combination of black and white is making these cabinets beautiful. But what we like here is that the lower cabinets are covered and are in continuation but the upper cabinets have gaps in it to make room for window and chimney and it is good blend of open shelves, and wooden and glass covered cabinets.

​3. Beneath the stairs

Under the stairs… usually this area of the house is a waste or underutilized. But not here! A cabinet build here will utilize the space well and will look great too.

​4. Something colorful for kids

5. Corner cabinet

The corner space has been converted into a very useful cabinet with drawers at the bottom, a few glass shelves in the niche and a long door hiding more shelves behind it. This is once again a thoughtful use of the vacant space under the stairs.
