How to choose this product
A base cabinet is a low cupboard or piece of storage furniture, often with a counter or display surface. It may be wall-mounted or freestanding, sometimes on legs. On ArchiExpo, such units are arranged by type or function.
Some models are designed to facilitate storage and access, as in kitchen cabinets with pull-out shelves. They may include a combination of different sized shelves and drawers, and may even have a sink built into the upper surface.
Freestanding cabinets can be easy to move, while wall-mounted models free floor space for easy cleaning. Robustness and ease of maintenance may take priority in commercial cabinets, such as those designed for professional kitchens.
These cabinets may come flat-packed or pre-assembled. Common materials include laminated board, solid wood, plywood and stainless steel.
How to choose
Ensure that the cabinet is large enough to hold the items to be stored without hampering movement around the room. Commercial models may have to comply with local regulations. Favor robust, stain-resistant, easily maintained designs. Consider how the style of the cabinet will fit with surrounding fixtures and fittings. A contemporary design in a striking color may constitute an interesting focal point in a neutral, light-colored bathroom.
