Cabinets have evolved into more than just functional storage spaces for your utensils and cutlery. They have also become a central design feature of any home, as they are easy to access. Cabinets are a lot like shelves; only they are most likely built into a wall. You can use shelves in areas of your house like the kitchen for storing chopping boards, canned goods, small plates and pots, and more. For better organization, opt for cabinets that attach vertically to the wall or floor. These types of storage units help keep things up off of the kitchen counter, and out of sight while providing extra storage space underneath.
