There are a whole host of kitchen cabinet materials from which you can choose, but you probably haven't taken the time to consider the different configurations that are available. Most people go for the traditional hinged-door, while a few opt for sliding cabinet doors. However, you should also think about rolling shutter doors for your kitchen cabinets. It might sound like an odd idea at first, but there are actually plenty of benefits.
Here are just four.
Kitchens are often the social hub of a home, a place where you entertain visitors or hang out with your family while making meals. However, space is often at a premium, so it helps to pick out fixtures that make the most of what you have. Rolling shutter door cabinets are perfect since the rolling mechanism takes up barely any space and doesn't need to be swung outwards for the cabinets to be opened. That's not just great for saving on space – it also prevents anyone striking their head against an open cabinet door.
2. Modern Appearance
If you want to create a more rustic kitchen, roller shutter cabinets probably aren't for you. However, most kitchens are now quite modern, incorporating the latest fixtures and appliances while using a more muted and monochromatic colour-scheme. Roller shutters work well with such an aesthetic; their funky modern appearance is going to let your kitchen stand out, and they'll blend perfectly with granite counters and stainless-steel appliances.
3. Versatile Operation
Traditional cabinet doors can basically be either opened or closed. With roller doors, things are much more versatile. If you want the whole cabinet interior on display, you can open things right up, and the lack of protruding doors means that there won't be any shadows cast over what's inside and that you'll be able to leave the cabinet open without making things look untidy. You can also raise the shutter just a little to get at your most frequently required items, keeping those bits and pieces that are seldom used stored up top.
4. Variety of Options
Finally, keep in mind that you'll have quite a few material options from which to choose. The first thing that comes to mind is probably metal, such as stainless steel or aluminium. However, you can also have sandblasted glass, a world of differently-coloured plastics or wood. You can have a picture or a set of words printed across the shutters, and some people even have a surface that can be written on to create a handy place for shopping lists, reminders and other notes.
