When it comes t0 kitchen wall units and cabinets, the focus tends me to be on the frontage of the units. The colour and style of design is obviously important. It goes a long way in determining if your choice suits the kitchen space you have. Similarly, your choice of handle can have a real bearing on the overall visual impact. But it shouldn’t be all about the frontage. There’s more you should consider. There will often be the need to have different height wall units to make best use of the space available. You need to remember that size matters.
But therein lies the problem. Size does matter, and there is definitely often the desire to use different height wall units for different styles and sizes of kitchen. But, the problem is this. You tend to be spoiled for choice, in terms of colour and design. However, you are often quite limited in the choice you have in the size of kitchen wall units. That is, unless you come to Kitchen Warehouse.
Different height wall units: Beyond the standard 720mm
The industry standard height for kitchen wall units is 720mm. Strictly speaking, this is the size of a ‘medium’ unit. However, what you are likely to find, is that 720mm is often the only height for wall units that many kitchen manufacturers and showrooms offer. 720mm has become the industry’s default position. This is all very well, but it’s obviously somewhat limiting.
Generally speaking, there’s a sound enough reason behind the standard size for kitchen wall units being 720mm. The ‘standard’ and ‘medium’ size will be perfectly adequate for many – if not most – kitchen designs. Furthermore, there really does need to be a degree of uniformity across the industry. It’s not practical to only have kitchens built to bespoke dimensions. It would raise costs considerably, for starters. Similarly, there has to be parity between the manufacturers of the unit carcasses and the manufacturers of door and drawer frontages.
But, all things considered, bearing in mind the scale of purchase that a complete new kitchen amounts to, it seems wrong that your chosen design should be limited to just one height of wall unit.
Well, the good news is that Kitchen Warehouse do provide a choice of different height wall units. As well as the standard 720mm wall units, we also offer 900mm high wall units and 575mm high wall units.
900mm high wall units: For all standard high rooms
Kitchen Warehouse stands out from the crowd when it comes to offering different height wall units. We offer 900mm high wall units and matching tall units as well as the standard height 720mm units. There aren’t that many kitchen companies that offer units of this size.
The thing is that space is always of an absolute premium when it comes to kitchen design. To be honest, it’s not really about the amount of space you have, it’s about making the most of what you have. One thing is for sure, a clear way of making efficient and effective use of any kitchen space is to utilise any opportunity you have to proceed extra storage space in your kitchen design.
Of course, 900mm high wall units aren’t appropriate for all sizes of kitchen. However, they will fit in a standard, normal (8ft) 2400mm high room. But it’s worth bearing in mind that this size of wall units does go right up to the ceiling.
It won’t come as a surprise to learn that 900mm wall units are most suited to big high ceiling rooms. They look particularly amazing in a classic old Victorian house. Typically, it’s in this type of wonderful character property that you tend to see ceilings that are 3m high. This allows you to feel the true benefit of the extra space 900mm high wall units provide you in the kitchen.
And for smaller kitchen spaces…
But, of course, it’s not everybody that has the luxury of high ceilings in their homes. Indeed, it might not even be your thing. If you live in certain types of property, such as cottages or farm houses, the vibe and overall feel of the home will be completely different. You are far more likely to have low ceilings.
But the kitchen is the heart of the home in any home. It doesn’t make any difference if you are living in a big, old Victorian property with high, lofty ceilings or a quaint little cottage with low-level ceilings. The kitchen is still equally important in both settings. And, it’s no less important that you capitalise on all the available space you have.
To this end, Kitchen Warehouse offers 575mm high wall units and larder units. Known as low-level wall units, these are ideal for the likes of cottages and farmhouses. Indeed, they fit the bill in any property with lower ceilings, or where space is particularly tight. The tall units are 2120mm from the floor. This is simply perfect for smaller and older period properties.

Acrylic units are made to an impressive standard. Matt Acrylic doors have a super-smooth and silk-like finish that transforms any kitchen into an ultra-modern space.

The classic Shaker design gives a traditional farmhouse kitchen flavour to a kitchen’s look. At the same time, Shaker kitchens are equally appealing and the perfect fit for more modern settings, such as the popular open plan kitchen-diner design. With luxury shaker kitchens you have a fantastic range of colours to pick from.
Ivory is a particularly classy tone. Dove Grey Luxury Shaker Kitchen Units are an inspired choice if you want a crisp and contemporary feel for your kitchen.

This gives the door the look of a painted timber door.
