Selecting furniture for a kitchen can be a once-in-a-lifetime event, so when it occurs, itís mighty important. Picking timeless, good-quality cabinets and countertops at the get-go means the pieces will last ages.

Types of Kitchen Furniture

Furniture for a kitchen falls into two categories: installed and uninstalled. The cabinets and countertops are installed. Items like bakerís racks and tables fall into the uninstalled category. In separate buying guides, we delve deeply into information to help you buy individual items such as bakerís racks, barstools, cabinets, countertops, islands, and tables. But for now, this overview will help you think comprehensively about furnishing your kitchen.

Kitchen Cabinets

A kitchen space needs at least a few cabinets, which are essentially furniture-style boxes constructed of wood or particleboard. Placed side by side under a countertop or affixed to the wall above the counter, cabinets typically contain adjustable shelves and feature swinging doors on their fronts. Any number of additional storage options are available. Most people refer to drawers, spice cupboards, and microwave shelves as cabinets, because the umbrella term refers to any built-in kitchen storage constructed of the same material and finish.

Kitchen Islands

A kitchen island, a counter-height storage piece, sits or floats in the middle of the room. It may be built into place and consist of cabinets and a countertop that match the other installed furniture. Or it may be a rolling cart made from materials different from the cabinetry. The island provides a food prep or eating area in a handy spot. It may facilitate the work triangle, the efficient work zone that includes the sink, refrigerator, and cooktop.

Product Features

Product Features

Here are some kitchen furniture features to review:

Bakerís Racks

A metal framework supports the metal or wood shelves of a bakerís rack. The open back and sides historically allowed air to circulate around cooling baked goods. Typically a deeper middle shelf serves as a work surface. In fact, the entire lower half may have deeper shelves.

Barstools

A stool meant for counter seating will be between 23 and 28 inches tall. For bar seating, a stool sits between 29 and 32 inches tall. Some stools have seat backs and rungs strung between the legs for use as footrests. Some barstools adjust to different heights.

Bistro Table Sets

Designed initially for the restaurant industry, a bistro table provides a small seating spot for two people, making it ideal for a small kitchen. The table surface, about 24 inches in diameter, offers space for two place settings. Most bistro tables sit on a pedestal base, so diners tuck closely together.

Carts

Kitchen carts range widely in size, material, and functionality. Carts with drop leaves let you extend the table/prep surface. Some carts hold base cabinets with doors, whereas others contain open shelves. The tops may be natural stone, laminate, or butcher block.

Kitchen Cabinets

Manufacturers offer a wide variety of cabinets and a smaller selection of door styles and finishes such as medium oak and white. Once you settle on the look of the cabinets, you can choose inner compartments designed to house pots and pans, dishware, glassware, utensils, and other items. Because cabinets require precision and are costly to redo, companies want you to use a professional kitchen designer to measure your space and choose appropriate cabinets.

Kitchen Countertops

Each countertop material possesses its own characteristics for looks, food prep, and cleanability, and the variations and cost differences are considerable. Laminate counters, for example, donít resist heat but easily wipe clean and require no sealing. Butcher-block counters provide excellent cutting surfaces but need to be oiled periodically. Granite counters look elegant and resist heat from pots and pans, but usually require a special cleaner to maintain their shine.

Kitchen Islands

An island keeps traffic flowing easily through a kitchen while providing additional counter space. To be a true kitchen island, a storage/table surface must sit in the middle of the kitchen. It also must be counter-height, though it may include table- or bar-height portions. Some islands are just a few inches in diameter, while others are large enough to contain appliances or sinks.

Kitchen Tables

Because it typically gets daily use, a kitchen table is more casual than a table you put in your dining room. Kitchen tables seat just two people, or as many as 12, depending on the size of the kitchen and household. You can buy kitchen tables individually or as sets with matching chairs or benches. Some kitchen tables have distinct features, such as built-in lazy Susans in the center, banquette seating, or an unusual surface material, such as glass.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

As you shop, keep in mind these aspects about kitchen furniture:

Bakerís Racks

Bakerís racks sit against walls, so measure to make sure you have enough wall space for one. Also keep in mind that the racks feature open storage, so stored items remain in view and tend to get dusty.

Barstools

These high seating options come in handy whether or not you have a bar or countertop eating space in your kitchen. If you want to rest while you mix up cookie dough or if you have mobility issues, you may want a barstool as a perch. Make sure the stool material easily wipes clean. If you have small children, you may want adjustable-height stools with seat backs and arms so you can boost children closer to the counter and keep them from tipping off.

Bistro Table Sets

If youíre considering a bistro set, you likely fall short on space. Choose a table thatís as small as possible that will still provide comfortable seating when you peruse the paper in the morning. If you plan to dine with another person, check that two dinner plates fit on the table.

Carts

The handiest aspect of a kitchen cart is its maneuverability. You can pull it up to a work area when needed and push it away when itís not. Buy a cart with large, sturdy wheels that lock in place. If the wheels donít lock, the cart may slide away when you hack at vegetables or whisk whipping cream.

Kitchen Cabinets

The size of your space and your budget mainly determine the basic kitchen cabinets you purchase. Once the base cabinets are chosen, take time to pick out storage components that suit your specific needs. Do you like to bake? You may want a cabinet with a pull-up shelf for your electric mixer and another cabinet with slots for baking sheets. Do you have loads of pots and pans? Consider where the lids will go; look for a special compartment for them. Inventory your kitchenware (including amounts and sizes), add items from your wish list, and talk over your needs with a kitchen designer.

Kitchen Countertops

After cabinets, countertops require the next largest amount of your kitchen design budget. The least expensive countertops feature a veneer of laminate, stainless steel, or granite over a low-cost base. The most expensive countertop materials consist of a solid slab of natural stone, quartz composite, and solid-surfacing. Costs increase according to square footage and specialty details, such as shapely carved edges.

Kitchen Islands

Many people make mistakes of scale in choosing a kitchen island. Either they pick one that is too small that wonít let them perform necessary tasks, such as chopping or serving, or they pick one that is too large that eats up precious floor space and becomes an obstacle. Before you purchase a freestanding island, tape its measurements on the kitchen floor. Then walk around the taped-off area for several days or even weeks to help determine if youíve picked an island that suits your space.

Kitchen Tables

Since it gets used every day and often several times a day, a kitchen table needs to be durable and cleanable. Choose a surface that withstands scratches from plates and utensils and requires no special cleaner or cleaning method. Then evaluate your daily routine and select a table accordingly: If you will place hot dishes on the table, you may want a heat-resistant surface. If friends come over after school for snacks, bench seating allows for extra people.
