Midday Muse: Freestanding Kitchen Cabinets


In Europe, it's very common to use freestanding cabinets in the kitchen and armoires in the bedroom, but in the United States, built-in cabinetry and closets are the norm. In fact, a trend of open shelving is only just beginning to happen here. I definitely see the appeal of freestanding units, though. If your style happens to change, or your cabinets aren't in such great shape, it's much easier to replace a single piece of furniture than renovate your entire kitchen. There's also more of a feeling of openness with freestanding unites. Built-ins offer counter space, though, which is a plus.
If you went with an armoire or hutch, you'd naturally also have to purchase a table or island to do your cutting. Does your house have built-in or freestanding cabinets? If you had the opportunity and the funds to renovate, would you opt for freestanding furniture? Tell me by commenting below!
